    Pros

    good pay structure, day off every week.

    Cons

    VIP leads need to be reconfigured, they let the managers distribute them out in an "order" but does not seem to be the case, they always have their favorites.

    Advice to Management

    quit micro managing

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sonic Automotive (Houston, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Unorganized, had to come back three different times due to people being on vacation. Definitely wasn't hard at all, they just wanted to make sure you looked presentable and could speak in an intelligent manner.
