    Pros

    They provide a lot of support for employees at the dealership level. Decent benefits package.

    Cons

    As a big corporate entity, there is a department for everything. That sometimes means a lot of micromanagement.

    Pros

    Extremely organized company. If you're wanting to get into the car business I definitely recommend going corporate. There's not many private stores that can be as organized. They train every day, no matter how many years of experience in the business you have because they understand the business is always growing and they adapt to the market. Plus 401K benefits after 90 days, health after 60 days and insurance after 30. Can't beat it.They do reward for working hard, no favoritism. If you bust tail, they will recognize you and promote you.

    Cons

    Sometimes there's a lot of pressure to sell, and customers can be very finicky, but that's sales for you. Not the easiest job in the world.

    Advice to Management

    Great experience with the management at the store I worked at.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment with flexible schedules depending on your department. The CEO is a super nice guy and cares about his staff. New HR head is improving PTO and benefits; they even have a scholarship program for your kids now!

    Cons

    Poor communication between departments and a lack of documented processes sometimes make getting things done difficult. Not enough accountability for poorly done work or not taking ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Don't reward laziness. Offer bonus opportunities to the people who get things done, not just their managers. Remind people that relaxed should not border on unprofessional.

    Pros

    you have the ability to make great money. you can grow with in the company relatively fast. they provide the opportunity and expect you to take advantage of it.

    Cons

    you have to work a lot of hours including weekends. very fast paced and they expect you to be on the top of your game all the time. you have a lot of down time and must make a lot of phone calls

    Advice to Management

    i think they need to recognize the employee a little better in more ways then just money
