    I have been working at AutoNation full-time

    Pros

    It's a good company to work for - given that you're okay with being a contractor. The people are nice. The cafeteria is nice with many food, drink, and snack options. Contractors don't get paid for the company holidays, but my manager at least is reasonable to provide extra work so I can get paid during the holiday.

    Cons

    AutoNation loves to hire people as a contractor. It seems like half of the company is made up of contractors, especially with jobs pertaining to technology. They don't give you a guarantee that you'll eventually be offered full employment. As a contractor, the only benefits you get are what's offered by the agency that referred you, which isn't much. You don't get paid vacation days, paid holidays, or paid sick days.

    Advice to Management

    I wish you would guarantee full employment for contractors.
