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

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible schedule, more time off paid with better setup of time off usage then other dealers I’ve worked at and a company willing to spend money on necessary upgrades and updates for where I work.

    Cons

    Health benefits cost more then what they should for what you get. Some corporatism trickles down from head management and can make it difficult to get some things changed that are specific to your brand or dealerships needs.

    Advice to Management

    It’d be nice to see someone from upper management come thru the store and talk directly to employees about how things are and what’s going on. Your a good company to work for imo but can seem a bit distant sometimes too.

    Pros

    You can achieve higher positions if you're dedicated you work more hours than anyone and put more effort than everyone.

    Cons

    It's a sales job you're dealing with people it sucks you already know this going in!

    Advice to Management

    I put a solid seven years in this company working my way from the very bottom to a management job in Atlanta Georgia it was a great ride all the way up until the end when I got fired for farting in my own office because of what happened to another associate in a Texas dealership for AutoNation I got terminated immediately without HR representation without any question it was have a nice day after seven solid years of hard graft 12 to 14 hours a day top salesperson did everything right never took a day off showed up for work on time every day so in closing I guess it is a good company to work for but don't judge someone without representation you'll lose a lot of quality people that way.
