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

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    If you are willing to bend over and let the management treat you like crap then you'll be their favorite. If you're hourly then you've got it made. But once you go flag(commission) you won't make any money. It's obvious who is the managements favorites. Really is not a good dealership to work at. The service advisors can't make upsells because they don't know how to talk to the customers due to lack of shop experience.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat your employees. If you want respect then show respect. We are all just here for a paycheck, not to be your buddy.
