    I have been working at Billion Auto full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good earning potential if you are willing to work hard and prospect for clients.

    Cons

    Ever changing pay plan and very poor communication with employees. Last time the pay plan was changes, they dropped the base pay by 1/3 and made it retroactive to the beginning of the month. Be ready to work long hours and make a ton of cold calls.

    Advice to Management

    This field serves no purpose with this company.

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

    Pros

    Freedom to work between many different locations. Company is growing. Higher level managers are good, charismatic people.

    Cons

    Sales Managers and mid-level managers treat underlings like dirt and are abusive at times. You are micro-managed to the point where a manager is watching every little thing you do.

    Some of the older buildings have mice and rats. There is dust, dirt, and mouse and rat droppings on the floors that have not been cleaned in years.

    Benefits are sub-par. Pay is sub-par. Employee discount does not exist. Salesmen and Service Advisors will bleed every dime out of you they can regardless of your employment with Billion.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the managers in IT. Advise staff on basic manners on how you are to treat co-workers.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Lots of fun and go to do a lot of different things

    Cons

    They always find a way to keep you busy, which isn't that bad considering it makes the days fly by.

    Advice to Management

    None. Great company to work for. Absolutely loved my time there. Management treats the employees very well and with a lot of respect.

    Pros

    enjoyable work environment, managers very flexible and understanding with schedule, friendly co-workers and management teams. Great benefits & pay plan

    long hours of work, not a whole lot of extra training outside of the initial training class.

    try to do more "on the job" training with new sales people.

    Pros

    A fair base pay
    Managers who care to see you succeed
    Freedom in work environment
    Lots of opportunity to move up if you work hard

    Cons

    Long hours
    Weather
    Say good bye to saturdays and holidays
    No hand holding
    Lots of responsibility to show up and work hard
    Not for the sensitive, faint of heart, easily offended, excessively disorganized, or lazy

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for all you do to help us succeed should we be willing. The ability to show an employee how to play to their strengths and become a better human being and help those who want to move up is easy to recognize. It's nice to have a laid back environment where we work hard and play hard as a team.
