      They had decent sales training.

      This is car sales and it's some nonsense everywhere you go.

    • "Barrier is a fun and exciting place to work when everyone is respectful to those of lower job titles."

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at Barrier Motors

        Pros

        If you drive a Mercedes you get great discounts of parts and labor costs as an employer

        Cons

        Pleasing every customer can be a challenge at time but the fulfillment when you are successful at this is exhilarating.

        Advice to Management

        Every job title be it inferior or superior is essential to making the company fun smooth and efficient. Don't discriminate on who you micro manage.

        I have been working at Barrier Motors full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        No shady practices, no smoke and mirrors. Customer service is of utmost importance. Strong name recognition and reputation. Great training.

        Cons

        You work every Saturday and Sunday and often on your days off. Most holidays as well. A constant grind with numbers and bonuses to reach.

        Advice to Management

        Reward employees who put the work in and stay around to help prevent the large turnover in sales associates. Rotate in one Sunday off pr.month for all Sales Associates after a year with the company.

        I worked at Barrier Motors full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Employee pricing on service and parts for represented makes, and free unlimited car washes make the otherwise unremarkable compensation plans tolerable.

        Cons

        Top-heavy advertising strategies and sometimes non-competitive pricing strategies can be cumbersome. Also, sub-par medical benefits choices aren't popular with families unhappy with Group Health.

        Former Employee - Salesman in Bellevue, WA
        Recommends

        I worked at Barrier Motors

        Pros

        Sense of professionalism; tremendous facilities; great support from service and parts employees. Realistic work schedule, some autonomy in job performance.

        Cons

        Like any dealership, the sales management has a direct affect on the success of the sales staff; their failure to get totally involved can make or break a cohesive team.

        Advice to Management

        Have adequate management support when it is needed by all employees rather than favoring one or two employees. Too often, managers were unwilling to get up from 'the desk' to help in performance of duties.

        I worked at Barrier Motors

        Pros

        Great products offered. Great service if customer.

        Cons

        Need to look at employee satisfaction year over year. Happy employees will naturally make customers happy.

        Advice to Management

        Take care of employees. They will work hard for you.
