    Great Place to work but pay is low

    Pros

    Cars.com is a great place to work- great for younger people since they have not yet made the money like a seasoned sales

    Cons

    Cars.com is a great place to work, Since so many Dealers are on very difficult to get commission and when they cancel they deduct the commission from your pay. You don't get paid commission- does not make sense if they complete the contract you are still dinged

    Pros

    Great pay and management. You have complete freedom to do what you want to do to get your job done. There's no micromanaging at all and outside B2B direct sales jobs are work from home. Benefits are outstanding especially if you have a family and also have contests all the time to make extra money including a Presidents Club for the top sales people to go on a vacation.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind right now.

    Great products, well-established in the industry, closing in on being the #1 solution in the space.

    Pros

    overall good company, nice people. opportunities to earn good money.

    Cons

    constantly pushing dealers for more revenue makes some of them angry and creates cancellations. a dealer goes out of biz or cancels, the hit against commissions is too big for the rep. they can't come up with realistic numbers for goals, and they sometimes tell you after the quarter what your goal was and that you didn't make it. base pay is low.

    Pros

    They have great benefits. They treat their employees very well during your time there. Generous commissions if you can meet your targets. Very young, fun environment at headquarters.

    Cons

    Changing leadership leading to lack of direction. Low base salary. Very middle management heavy. Perceived arrogance from company by customers. High turnover outside of headquarters. Much of your success is determined by the territory in which you are given. Can be very fruitful, can be a rough go right off the bat.
