      You can earn your own paycheck and work as much or as little as you please without feeling micromanaged.


      Weekly time required to work at the dealership ranges from 50-65 hours. Work extends into the later half of the night often. No sales equates to no paycheck. High turnover rate, but if you can sell you'll earn over 100,000k commission pretty easily.

        Easy to see how to maximize your pay Longevity bonuses Good 401k and matching The possibility of making good money


        Get used to pay plan changes, the goal always seems to not let associates make too much? Management is constantly under pressure from the top, and not in a good way. AN is all about reports and spreadsheets. If certain boxes and numbers don't look good compared to other stores, drastic changes will be made that trickle down to make your job difficult to enjoy or do properly often - get used to this. I've seen and been told to stoop to certain levels to achieve a certain outcome at the cost of the customer to make the store/management look better on a spreadsheet. Instead of guidance and training, it's simply being told "this must happen" with the threat of your day off being forfieted. Speaking of which, your day off must often be earned by selling enough certain services/products. Very long hours (especially if you don't "earn" your day off) 110 to 145 hours every 2 weeks. If you can put up with these things, you can make good money and still be happy.

      Brand Marketing Strategist

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end

      For those who are/were in management- At how many years of experience did you get your first job as a manager? How did you make the jump into leadership? For people whose first management role started at a new company, how did you convince them since you had no prior experience in management??
