    Pros

    Health care Benefits are good

    Cons

    Pay plans changed almost weekly. Always promised an increase in pay, but was always a decrease. Upper management forced the helpless middle management to promote their horrible ideas. Seems to have no cares as to who stays or who leaves.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little compassion to your employees

    Pros

    Great health insurance coverage for employees. Employees at the dealership level are generally wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    *they expect you to get a job done within 40 hours a week with no staff to support you.
    *you might have the title of "manager" but you are actually just a figurehead. You have no say over how your office is ac actually staffed or ran.
    *no training - you basically learn as you go.
    *corporate management only thinks short term and has no idea how an office is ran day to day.
    *they (corporate) make changes constantly without regard as to how and who will be carrying out the new policy. And then sometimes they make changes and dont even tell you they made the changes until, literally, a month and a day later.
    *stock prices keep dropping, which is indicative of a struggling company.
    *they cut the amount of floating holidays received in a year as well as now making it so you earn them, instead of them being presented all at once at the beginning of the year.
    *the list could go on, but I would seriously advise against working for this company unless something changes drastically.

    Advice to Management

    Staff your offices better. Train your employees more than just 3 days. Let your managers have a voice and let them actually be heard. Communicate changes to the managers at the dealership level promptly, not a month later.

    Pros

    Great people at the store level

    Cons

    Commission plan has changed 4 times in 3 months. Said they wanted us to make more money but cut commissions and made the minimum wage salaries a draw. Hard to make a decent living when the season is only 8-9 months long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Marcus out of it.

    Pros

    There are some really nice and hard working people there. Starting pay is higher than average. Hours are steady. Customer base is generally friendly.

    Cons

    General management is completely disconnected from the staff and is not entirely professional in approach to coaching opportunities. RV sales and retail are actually 2 different companies which makes it confusing internally. All positions are so separated that there is constantly an underwhelm of teamwork. A sense of urgency and quick customer service is not top priority.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the management is great to work for! Keep it up! There is one person in management who regularly displays signs of not really caring at all about the person performing the job. Although we are all just entities, it would be nice to feel less defensive at work and more valued.
