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

    Pros

    Good company with awesome supervisors. The higher ups have made some poor and frankly selfish decisions but they don’t outweigh the fact that it’s still the best dealership in my opinion to work for.

    Cons

    The usual issues you can’t run from in any dealership
    People thinking they are the only ones that matter
    Parking

    Advice to Management

    This is one of the only industries across the board that you only get paid for what you make the company on a day by day hour by hour basis. Show your employees that you value that with year end bonuses
