    I have been working at AutoNation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, positive coworkers and managers, busy stores (I have worked in 3 stores)

    Cons

    Can be long hours, but that's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Promote and increase training opportunities . Lots of training exists, but most associates don't know about it or how to access.

    I have been working at AutoNation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    8hours/day, Monday-Friday, morning shift. Uniform.

    Cons

    Demographics. Favoritism. No common-courtesy, nor respect. Part-timers get paid $10.36, while full-timers get paid $10.00: doesn't make sense. Ideas aren't acknowledged, there's a lot of things to change that can make the workplace more efficient and organized.

    Advice to Management

    Train or hire better salesmen, most of them don't WANT to do their job and make someone else take the responsibility for them. Make it clear what their duties and consequences are and how they're separate from everyone else; you snooze you lose. Also don't play favorites, it's very eminent when you're there that employees don't like change. I still don't feel welcomed at all.
