    I have been working at Briggs Auto Group full-time

    Pros

    They use to have really good training but after the high turn over they don’t really even have that anymore

    Cons

    Everything from top to bottom.

    Advice to Management

    No direction. Try and keep a manager longer than a month.

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

    Pros

    Easy enough to get the job, moving forward or progressing is another story. Because I was hired on as a porter during college (part-time) I was told I could not transfer to anything aside from taking pictures. No pay increase, only hours, and from that point nothing further was ever offered.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunity unless you are "buddies" with the owner or his family.

    Advice to Management

    Realize when you have true potential in front of you

    I worked at Briggs Auto Group full-time

    Pros

    Great hourly pay, plus commissions. Hour lunch and 2 - 15 breaks.

    Cons

    Too many outbound calls expected. They expect appointments when it's kinda luck of the draw for the people picking up and making them come into the dealership. Only one good BDM. The rest aren't that great. General manager isn't realistic. We shouldn't be calling people daily for months.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. Be more realistic with the call volume to appointment ratio especially when it comes to TrueCar leads.

    Pros

    Good coworkers
    Large customer base
    Large inventory

    Cons

    Don't care about salesmen
    Long hours
    Stolen Sales
    The commission isn't as great as they say

    Give the sales to the proper salesmen

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

    Pros

    Customers at Briggs are very well taken care of. I would recommend all of my friends and family purchase their vehicles here.

    Cons

    Ownership and upper management don't know their employees because they don't take the time to get to know them. The environment is very stressful and toxic. It's very unfortunate but because ownership and upper management won't listen to new ideas, this group will always be stuck in the mud, mired in old ideas and a lack of understanding today's employee. The employees at Briggs want success for themselves and for the company. They want to do a great job but they want recognition for it.

    Advice to Management

    Please change your way of thinking. You have an awesome opportunity to continue to build a great company. Until you realize that you are surrounded by people who care and want to make a difference, and you actually empower them, you will continue in an ominous circle of negativity. It's unfortunate.

    Self directed sales - you build your customer base in sales
    you get what you put into it
    potential for great money

    Cons

    Long hours 60-70 hours a week
    lots of pressure at the end of the month
    pay is always up in the air since its commission

    Advice to Management

    Hold managers accountable for their issues, don't let them get pushed to the sales reps.
