    If you can't self manage your self then this is not the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up your coaching skills to succeed. You're dedication makes us work harder!

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

    Pros

    Flexable hours, like a big family. Team morale is definitely there as well as the G.M. will always go above and beyond to help out even the lowest people on the totem pole. If you put in the effort, you will reap the benefits, not a job for someone who is not a go getter.

    Cons

    You work a lot of hours.

    Great benefits. Positive environment and learned great skills to carry on through life

    Cons

    Too many hours and after 14 years of retail I needed change and growth

    Advice to Management

    More female leaders
