    Pros

    The pay was good, employees very nice, location was on point. Had an hour lunch which i liked.

    Cons

    Managers need more training, they didnt always have the best system for a steady flow. Customers always getting angry with us because of what they were told at the store. There is no advancement only several departments of equal or less pay. No fair treatment, they play favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you would want to be treated.

    Great place to learn the car business. Training is topnotch. And you can sell anything anywhere after some time in the business.

    Not the strongest pay plan in the business. You will findout.

    Advice to Management

    They hire a lot of people and train them. . People don't stay because of the pay plan. . Fix it and your people will stay longer .

    Pros

    you can learn the basics of your position and the industry then move on to another company.

    Cons

    just about everything - all the corporate owned stores been making life hard for non-manager employees. less and less PTO, horrible health insurance and matching nearly none of your 401k. Autonation takes the cake though. they have no sick days so your afraid to call in sick so don't you lose your PTO of which it takes 6 years to get 3 weeks, could it get any worse? corporate has no idea what goes on at dealer level and new 'policies' that get introduced are put into effect poorly. Nothing gets fixed until it's completely broken, never a proactive effort to fix any problems/issues. Managers only concerned about one thing: The Bottom Line! long work days, poor life/work balance, 6 day weeks with no overtime incentive for most employees. Replacing qualified and skilled people with low paying unskilled people we all must train. Constantly changing pay plans to make it harder to make the money you used to make years.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees better and they will treat your customers better. better work life balance so we are more productive and awake at work. We have not had an employee survey in years because they are probably afraid of we have to say.

    Pros

    AutoNation is a great company to work for but management needs to change. Fun place to work at. Lots of events. Employee discounts are very good.

    Cons

    Benefits are very expensive. Hours are long. Management seems to be trying to squeeze every last minute of your life. Customers can have outrageous demands.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more time off and better hours. Every weekend is not necessary or healthy.

    Pros

    ? Really it was 3 years of disregard for any employee and then 2017 was the massacre and threats to follow

    Cons

    The constant lies from executives and new so called leadership. The intent seems to break down the teams, have them quit of fired so they can outsource.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the lies
