    I have been working at AutoNation (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable environment. Plenty of training. A lot of stores to choose from. They are everywhere in the U.S. good benefits. Medical, dental, vision, 401k options.

    Cons

    Pay is not the best. HR does not really do much when issues arise. A lot of hours. Better have thick skin to go into this business.

    Advice to Management

    It's who you know, not what you know.

    I have been working at AutoNation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People you work with are great. My service manager and director are top notch.

    Cons

    I just can't get over hourly pay and medical. No raises for hourly workers. They are the worst I've ever seen. Also promotions are not handed out to workers who have tenure or work their butts off. It's dependent on whoever is manager and how well you can cater to them. So if you take manager out for drinks and do personal favors for them, you get a promotion and the GM is none the wiser as he has more important things to do than to monitor his own dealership like attend conferences in Vegas etc.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to higher mature managers for a departmet or else you will see them handin jobs out to all the girlfriends or girls that go clubbing with her instead of the workers who put the time and hard work in. Smh...still can't believe it.

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

    Pros

    You get paid the work you put in. They pay hourly on top of commission. Supportive management. Fun job for sales. Working with new cars and different people.

    Cons

    Super long hours, pay plan isn't the greatest if you sell a good amount of cars. Can be stressful when you come in on days off to sell a car.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more aware of up rotation

    I worked at AutoNation (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At one point I could list a lot, but not anymore. Change in management did a lot of damage to our office.

    Cons

    Long month end and no overtime. Micro management, unrealistic goals for some, and favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Try to remember the original ethics that were followed in begging.
