    I worked at AutoNation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at one of the collision centers. The job was fast paced which isn't for everyone but hits my comfort level perfectly. My boss was awesome - caring, reasonable, appreciative, and easy to work for. We have remained in touch since I left. I loved the atmosphere and the relationships with my coworkers at my location and the other area shops.

    Cons

    The pay for my position was very low and was the reason I left.

    Advice to Management

    The front office is your first and last touch point with the client. If you want to keep good people in place that can be the customer service expert and administrative backbone for all areas of the shop you need to increase the pay. Someone in that position should be able to sustain themselves without needing a second job.

    I have been working at AutoNation full-time

    Pros

    -Bright coworkers, engaging projects, ability to create change.
    -Lean environment, opportunity for executive exposure at almost all levels.

    There is a lot of "low hanging fruit", so if you're a "builder" and want to help transform an industry that serves as a key economic indicator, this is the place to be!

    Cons

    Lean infrastructure allows for speed, but at times at the expense of project quality.
