    Pros

    Asbury has been an amazing company to work for, from my team to my management, down to my work. Everyone is always eager to learn, to help enhance the company overall, and listens to any issues or concerns you may have. This company is very open and susceptible to change within the industry which keeps us as one of the largest automotive retailers around!

    Cons

    More events and team building moments would be a plus! Other than that, no cons!

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

    Pros

    Huge company, tons of revenue to throw around. Great earning potential. Income is completely self driven. No one but myself can increase or decrease my monthly income. I don’t have to depend on anyone else to get paid.

    Cons

    Unqualified management, corporate level managers are useless, and think they are the best thing in the world. Managers will yell at employees in the showroom with other employees and customers present.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your subordinates as humans. You were one of us at one point.

    I have been working at Asbury Automotive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the true professionals, the people who actually take their job seriously are the ones who make it worth while to work there. Some of the managers, the techs, the parts and service guys who really know what’s going on, it’s wonderful to work with them. It makes it worth while. They’re confident in their job, they do it right the first time and everyone flows into one continuous circle of positive energy and experiences for everyone involved. That feeling I only get occasionally, on rare days, is one of the reasons I enjoy working here. Accounting does a half decent job and I’m glad the people who actually run that portion of this ship have a brain.

    Cons

    Some of the elder statesmen in this company keep thinking its the 1970’s and we’re hustling used Chevys with rebuilt titles. These people need to go. If they can’t make positive contributions to the system then they need to leave. If the company wants to stay relevant then they need to stop with the cheap ploys and the sketchiest tactics.

    We do zero advertising and it seems really stupid of a decision.

    We let people who are vapid make decisions that can affect and sink stores while being completely unchecked and praised for their stupidity.

    Professionalism is poor with most employees.

    “Numbers” focused only. On what numbers I’m not sure because overall demand keeps decreasing yet “we made an extra $20 on that previous sale!”

    Priorities are not aligned with what they claim is their long term goals.

    Quality of training only depends on the quality of the manager/assiant manager of the department. No training sessions. No textbooks. No video sessions. Nothing.

    The company is cheap. No one will spend the money to improve and reinvest in either better technology, better systems to streamline and improve efficiency and make improvements to fixed ops and infrastructure of the actual stores.

    If you don’t work at a major store, no one will pay attention to you.

    On communications, l’ll give you an example.. When the company approves a discount, a coupon, or some sort of mailer.. you won’t know what to do because there is no clear, constant, consistent communication between upper level management in Atlanta and the people on the ground.. even for something so simple. It can feel very “Us” vs. “Them”. No one, even major corporations know what’s going on or what they’re doing. To fix that, Send me a god damn email if it’s applied to my brand and store. Tell me how I should adjust my invoices in CDK to match the coupon and do it using under 1 page for instructions.

    Just tell me what’s going on above me. It can feel like a very disjointed company.

     Computers for employees are usually fairly old and on their last legs. IT support is so-so.

    Very few women are in upper management positions.

    Zero opportunity created by the company to help employees gain more knowledge and further their education. Very little flexibility in that.

    Advice to Management

    Work on creating more concise and clear communication with the stores. If something changes, send me an email that is considered and too the point. Anything longer than a page no one will read. Develop better strategy and courses of action to streamline and improve the systems we must interact with. Invest in people, create opportunities for employees to further their education, invest and upgrade both the hard and soft products of your sales and fixed ops environments. Create step by step guides for people new to the software and industry. Set store standards of how business should be conducted based on brand and brand image.

    Pros

    Asbury has been the best career move I could have made. Not only is there plenty of room and encouragement for advancement, but the job is ever-changing and challenging.

    Cons

    The automotive industry is very competitive and sometimes the ever-changing nature of it can feel like not allowing long-term strategy to take hold.

    Pros

    Lots of great people in the company.

    Cons

    Traditional male-dominated work place. Little opportunity for advancement. Very difficult, if not impossible, to make change to improve process and/or efficiency. Ridiculously low pay compared to market average.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your people. Don't just make it about the dollar but the relationships with both your employees and your customers. Let corporate employees visit dealerships and dealership employees visit corporate--it would help ease the tension between the two workforces.
