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

    Pros

    Decent work environment. You will be left to yourself if you don't connect with the right people. Casual dress.

    Cons

    -Insurance was horrible (may be better with AutoPoint)
    -Premiums and Deductibles were 4 times other company averages. I paid over $1200 for premiums per month with a 10,000 deductible for family coverage. Outrageous!

    There are cliques and promotions based on people being there from the beginning, everyone else was dispensible

    -They were trying to operate like a big company but had lots of small-company ways. My VP had been there for many years which is the only reason they were a VP (not because of competency) ... . Totally unequipped and would NEVER cut it at a big corporation.

    -Tons of nepotism. People not friendly if you're not a part of cliques

    Pros

    If you like sitting, and being on the phones , and ther are some sweet people

    Cons

    Poor management, prejudice , favoritism, they are quick to take sides , if a manager wants to see one of ther friends do better they will work on them for management regardless of there attendance and call quality scores. No information is confidential, you get picked on and intimidated if they don't like you. And yes someone who just walked in the door because they like a certain person , that person gets moved up and shown more , to me it's only one manager causing this drama and I believe she is prejudice and needs to be demoted , she is unfair to a lot of people and cut throat behind you back other wise every other manager I know is good.

    Advice to Management

    Look into your manager it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who she is , she is unprofessional and needs to be demoted, your information is not confidential she goes back and tells what you have discussed to that other associate, because she is cut throat and wants to make you feel little. Advise is investigate your management , think about management that has had issues with there associates and who the associates were they had issues with , majority in there. Put her under the radar and your company will be ran fairly

    Pros

    A decent base salary with pretty good heath benefits. Nice modern office.

    Cons

    Horrible direction and leadership. It's too bad the leadership is bad because the do have many good products. You're always on the edge of your seat worrying about if you'll have a job the next day.

    Advice to Management

    Tune in.

    I have been working at DMEautomotive full-time

    Pros

    One of the only companies in Daytona that pays you okay and your not having to walk around all the time

    Cons

    The people there gossip about one another and the bosses don't ever let you advance. It's almost a joke how they let people who have only been there 6 months become almost like your boss because they kiss up

    Advice to Management

    When you start valuing your employees is when your employees will start valuing their jobs. Exceptional customer service is only given when the environment is a place of growth and people are shown that they are valued

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

    Pros

    - Competitive pay
    - Company wide rewards for meeting company goals, ie; they handed out an iPad mini for one, gave us a free paid holiday
    - Very swaggy, shirts, packs, etc.
    - Good place to sharpen your SQL and Javascript

    Cons

    - Most expensive benefits I ever had. For family health insurance it was $700+ a paycheck
    - Management is brutal, if you like be cussed at you will love working here
    - Management does not reward hard work and honestly treats people like crappie despite the amount of effort
    - Be ready to work nights and weekends to meet unrealistic deadlines
    - Having thick skin is a must to work here
    - Preaches quality in meetings but demands quantity behind doors

    Advice to Management

    Recognize people when they work 100+ hours in a week to save the face of upper management who has made bad decisions.

    Find management that doesn't need to tear people down to run the department.

    Pay a larger portion of the health insurance.

    Expect hiccups and stop demanding unrealistic deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Flexible schedule; that's about it.

    Cons

    Poor leadership; no raises; no careerpaths. Full of people hired due to personal relationship with executives versus skill. Many egos and long-timers that add no value to the company. Morale very low.

    Advice to Management

    Reward good employees with raises and promotions. Retain talent!

    I worked at DMEautomotive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Jacksonville location is more correlate feel. People in Daytona office have been around forever because there is nowhere else for them to work there so they are very clique-ish.

    Cons

    THE WORST benefits package I have ever heard of in 20 years working experience. They should be embarrassed to offer that. VP actually said in monthly meeting that medical costs were so high due to "Obamacare". Their benefits package has always been extremely expensive comparatively.
    They operate like a Mom and Pop operation but think they are corporate. The upper management (VPs) acquired jobs because they've been around forever and are not qualified. They would never cut it in a real organization. Keep trying!
