    Pros

    Team work ! Very unusual for car sales and competitive sales. Management cares about you the client and everyone's overall experience!

    Cons

    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 full-time

    Pros

    GM is awesome! Also they will go out of the way to help you out.

    Cons

    Sales managers are good, but finance managers... They get upset because they can't sale products, if they get an idea that there may be no back gross they will turn you away and not accept customer. Also, plan on working a lot of hours, schedule is messed up. #ripfamilylife

    Advice to Management

    Finance mangers either need to retrain or get weeded out. Really, you refuse to do your job?

    Pros

    Great work environment and friendly.
    Great benefits
    We work like a team

    Pay Plan needs improvement
    Follow through on Management is good but could improve
    Staffing and training of qualified personnel is lacking
    Very poor floor traffic
    Little focus on Advertising that would grow customer flow.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a more proactive pay plan
    Work to attract more talented people with seasoned Sales experience
    Drive up customer traffic with advertising
