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

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k match after a year, pto, 2 paid holidays, health insurance match, good work environment, pay is decent, sometimes promote from within, employees teach each other new things, family environment, long tenor of employees,

    Cons

    Very corporate, pinch pennies, management cares about hitting their bonuses rather than giving employees raises, pay plans change very frequently, managers complain to employees more than tell them they’re doing well, empty promises of promotions or take WAY longer than originally told.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the employees financially. They have raised prices in services but haven’t done any increase in pay for employees. Now making services harder to sell because prices are higher.

    Pros

    Some of the management are absolutely wonderful- Dan is amazing! My co-workers are simply amazing. They offer benefits and pto.

    Cons

    You don’t get paid enough or receive any raises what so ever for the amount of stuff piled on top of you. Corporate has taken over entirely to much on things I personally think need to be handled in store due to having angry customers/vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises more than just once every 4-6 years even if it’s just cost of living. Praise your employees every once in a while instead of making them feel like they are never good enough.. don’t throw new managers into a position without proper training. That is setting them up for failure. And give sick time and let us have back the set holidays. Since they turned them to floating holidays the managers don’t want us to take the holidays off. I personally enjoy my family and like to celebrate holidays with my family.

    Pros

    The hours are pretty flexible

    Cons

    Micromanaging staff, they audit the way you speak to your customers on the phone and will deduct your paycheck from it, you have to check in with mangers as if you're 5 years old, morning meetings about nothing when you can be making money, pay is $12.50 an hr that's what someone whose 25 an under should get paid, wait that's most of their employees because their turnover is very high.

    Advice to Management

    None. For what?

    Great co-workers! Everything else is terrible.

    Cons

    Management is some of the worst people I’ve ever met in my life, employees are treated like they’re children, so much is expected from you and you barely get paid anything, management is extremely disrespectful to employees, DO NOT WORK HERE

    Advice to Management

    HIRE NEW MANAGEMENT

    Pros

    ... coworkers are cool! Nice computers!

    Cons

    Too little pay for too much work the commission structure is wrong you can make all the appointments in the world but you only get paid if the car sales rep makes the sale. Prepare to work 7-9 day stretches. Training and the script are unorganized you spent 2 months learning something then the managers on the floor tell you otherwise. Not enough leads only one or two people are making the “40k” they say is possible. Which to me should be the minimum for any sales commissioned rep. Turn over is crazy the first wave of employees they hired all left!
