    I have been working at VinSolutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company is absolutely amazing! The feel of a close-knit startup, with the backing of a multi-billion dollar corporation. The culture is incredible. They're continually rewarding hard-work & making sure to clear paths for those who truly want to excel & grow.

    I feel proud to know that I'm actually selling a product that I whole-heartedly believe in. We take incredible care of our dealers & make sure to live by a totally transparent, customer-centric business model. Our commitment to partner with our dealers for success isn't just hyperbole, it's genuine. We care & our company's growth has proven so.

    I honestly cannot see myself at any other company in this industry - If I was to leave VinSolutions/CoxAutomotive, I would leave the Automotive Industry because I couldn't stand working for anyone other than the best.

    I'm Vin for life.

    Cons

    We need more space for parking!

     We are hiring too fast to keep up (but that's not really a con) :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep believing in your staff & setting the standard for high quality performance. One benefit would be a regular "round-table" with sub-management level associates to really discuss the issues/concerns/enhancements/insight that those who are interacting w/our dealers daily in the trenches, can communicate. A lot gets lost in between the levels of hierarchy - direct communication is much more efficient in solving problems.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VinSolutions in March 2015.

    Interview

    After the interview, they said they want to hire me and after two weeks of giving me the run around, said they could not do so anymore! If that was the case, why waste my time and the time of everyone involved? I was quite frustrated already with the whole process, and was inclined to decline the offer myself. I would suggest to the HR to keep up their word or not say anything in the first place unless they are sure.
