    I worked at Asbury Automotive (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starting here I wasn’t sure what to expect however I was pleasantly surprised at the opportunity asbury & the CDZ are offering. The exceptional professionalism, car industry knowledge, and overall atmosphere of the work space was second to none.
    The management staff was extremely educated on all things in the automobile industry and were more than willing to share their vas knowledge and “tricks of the trade” to promote each individuals success.
    Lindsey and her stellar work ettiqutte and professionalism was able to work one on one every chance she got to instill individual enpowerment in each and every agent.
    The training provided is unheard of in this industry with 6 weeks of in-depth sales and product knowledge which prepared each of us for true success.

    Cons

    My only real con would be that I was forced to move to a state that Asbury doesn’t currently have a dealership or CDZ center for me to transfer to. I will stay in close contact in hopes for another amazing opportunity with them in the future.

    Pros

    Great CEO and upper level management. You are given adult responsibilities and judged on performance. Fun environment. Health plan. Pto. Open communication from departments. Discounts on sales and service. Great staff. Promotions from within. Best job I've ever had. Not saying it's perfect but those that run it have real passion for what they do.

    Cons

    You are expected to put in the hours but if you do and do it well, you will see the benefits!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on encouraging and inspiring. Help staff be better everyday

    Pros

    Great environment
    Results driven management that work one on one.
    Consistent training
    Ping pong tables

    Cons

    Not really any cons in my opinion. Everything in the CDZ is getting up and running so it is an exciting time. The management does a good job keeping things lighthearted and stress free for the CDZ agents.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!

    Please allow your employees to train more and what to stay with the company rather than have the older and experienced workers push the new ones out the door.

    I worked at Asbury Automotive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was cool to get a job with a brand new dept within a company that promotes from within.
    6 week training with lunch.
    The people that I work with and who no longer work here have truly been great.

    Cons

    Our managers are dealership people who treat a call center like a dealership.
    If you mention an issue they call it an excuse.
    If you tell them the way they speak is problematic, they tell you they're a cupcake compared to dealership managers which makes no sense because THIS ISNT A DEALERSHIP.
    We went through extensive training then learned it was all for naught. The actual job is very different.
    The only constant is that nothing is consistent.
    The managers have attempted to be nicer (it's fake) but morale is already low because they take and take and don't give enough. There's no benefit of the doubt and not very many solutions to our issues or theirs.
    Your schedule changes. Your job duties change.
    You're told you have to be flexible lol.
    The trainer got half of the staff fired because he was an egotistical jerk and they let him run wild for months. He's gone so it's understaffed for nothing.
    They want your life to revolve around the job but it's not an enjoyable enough job.
    They do not respect your life outside of it. They don't respect that things happen and they make that clear.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some PEOPLE people. You need sales managers fine. That's great but you also need balance. You need administrative backed and HR savvy personnel. The job is stressful and it's mostly because of who was hired as management and their attitudes. BOTH of them.
