    I worked at Dorschel Automotive full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Dorschel is one of Upstate New York's largest automotive retailers but they are still a family owned and operated company that believes in the value of their employees. Opportunities for internal advancement, strong benefits packages, and frequent training opportunities are some of the company's strongest pros.

    Cons

    Downsides of working at Dorschel are minimal but could include having to work outside in inclement weather (based on position).

    I worked at Dorschel Automotive full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Leadership was fantastic, offering great feedback and support. They give you ample time to learn the product and the process and allow you the freedom to run your own business.

    Cons

    You have to be a self-starter, that's resilient and adaptable. The business isn't for the faint of heart. But for those with tenacity, that enjoy working with people and being the support they need to navigate a big purchase, it's the job for you.

    I worked at Dorschel Automotive full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone was very helpful in the beginning. Very structured environment.

    Cons

    Shelf life of a manager is roughly 1-3 years. Then they spit you out like rotten fish. Loyalty does not pay. Don't expect a career here.

    I have been working at Dorschel Automotive full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's easy to get hired but that's because with 50-75% annual turn-over, they are always hiring.

    Cons

    Unless you are one of the "chosen few," you have no chance for success.

    I have been working at Dorschel Automotive full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It pays the bills until a better opportunity opens somewhere else.

    Cons

    There is a lot of pressure by the managment to falsify time sheets, skip lunch breaks, come in excessively early, and sacrafice your days off. Those who show resistance to the "culture of work" at the dealsership will quickly find themselves at the bottem of the board, or even off completely, thereby limiting all income opprotunities.

    I have been working at Dorschel Automotive full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    decent training program and supportive mid-level managers to assist in your training. Easy to move up or to a different department if you would like. Unique approach to selling cars, truly ahead of the curve in this respect.

    Cons

    definitely a "churn and burn" mentality. there is always a new training class starting and fewer than 10% of those that make it through training will be there within one year. very low employee morale and poor culture. Be prepared to take a well below industry average starting pay, learn everything you can and then move on to another dealership. Many of the processes are unnecessarily complicated and lead to frustration and confusion for all parties as well as lowered customer service
