    I worked at Crown Automotive Group (Florida) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -weekly pay (Get paid Every Friday)
    -Trainings is good and have learned alot from it
    -A wide variety of used cars

    Cons

    -Negative/miserable atmosphere, no one seems to be happy to be there, alot of complaining. There are a few employees that are nice and helpful but other than that you need to hope.
    -Direct Deposit was suppose to take 2 months but i never got my money via direct deposit, managers will give you your check on fridays.
    -Health Insurance is ridiculously expensive

    Advice to Management

    I know its the car business however, there needs to be team work to some extent and most importantly everbody needs to be more in sync. Theres not a worse feeling than a company who does not seem to know what they are doing sometimes. Crown has great potential to be a great company however there are things that needs to be worked on such as a faster way to get direct deposit.

    Pros

    Insurance benefits only. Sundays off

    Cons

    Crown Eurocars /Mercedes Slave drivers, no quality of life. Nothing but favoritism. They will starve you into quitting if they don't like you. No vacation time, if you take your one week off a year and don't make your quota you get written up. Management is verbally and emotionally abusive. The worst company to work for in 30 years of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally.

    Pros

    Great owners that are very personable and down to earth which is hard to find now with most businesses. There's always a great opportunity for employment advancement.

    Cons

    The only thing that would be negative is that when an issue may occur whether small or large, always back up your team first.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to let the younger generation of management fast track through the ranks of promotion.
