    I worked at David McDavid Auto Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly management all the way to the top. Totally understanding if you need to pick up your kids or whatever. Laid back environment. Full benefits. I made a lot of money selling cars there.

    Cons

    Can't say there are many cons. Getting promoted won't happen unless you go where the opportunity is: most likely out of state.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to give. Keep doing what you are doing. Appreciate my time at David McDavid Ford.

    Pros

    Great hours!!! great pay!!! No Bell to Bell like the Dallas Dealers. Actually get a life here. 5 day work week

    Wish the store was closer to where I live. I currently drive 45 minutes to work. But besides the drive there is nothing to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do. You listen to your employees and thats all we can ask of you. Thank you taking an interest in everyone. We are not just a number here.

    Pros

    Made long lasting friendships with coworkers. Gained great work experience in multiple areas. The thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for all employees was a nice touch.

    Cons

    They aren't very good to their employees. Not flexible with schedule. The building is falling apart. Literally a letter fell off the building and hit someone's car. Inventory is cramped. Too much drama in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your employees and you will have less of an employee turn around. Don't be condescending and be open minded about ideas that may help the business grow.

    Choose who you hire to talk directly to your workers. It shows a lot on the company

    Pros

    Going through extensive training provided was extremely helpful, specially for someone who has never been a car salesman before. Plus, working with cars is always great.

    Working long hours was the hardest. Also, getting commission taken off your check isn't cool.

    Honesty
