    Pros

    Great Company, Benefits and Team Members.

    Cons

    Too much change going on. Lack of appreciation from Upper Management. Don’t trust anyone that works there. A lot of back bitting to get to the top

    Advice to Management

    Promote individuals that are truly ready for next level promotions. Don’t promote based on who you know.

    Pros

    Minimal to no supervision. Enough time to get what you needed done without being bothered.

    Cons

    No set hours- you're the last one to leave after the last car is sold. No overtime pay unless the company "ok's" it, which half the time they don't. Looking at working over 10hrs ALL THE TIME

    I have been working at DriveTime Automotive Group full-time

    Pros

    Drivetime has great benefits and does a good job vetting leads to help keep the incoming customer flow high.

    Cons

    They have changed their underwriting standards and compensation package too many times. I've been there less than a year and things are completely different on both fronts since I've started.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers in developing and motivating their team, budget for administrators to deal with the titling and dmv.

    I have been working at DriveTime Automotive Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hours are good and the healthcare benefits are half way acceptable

    Cons

    Everything else is bad about this place especially the favoritism. No room for advancement whatsoever unless you previously knew management on an intimate level

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring and promoting your friends and family and maybe if the place isnt run on primarily favoritism employee moral will improve. There's far too many false promises followed by a managers best friend getting the job you've been promised and trained for leaving you stuck in a dead end job. No room for advancement unless you were at the general managers wedding. The only plus to this place are the hours and the shotty insurance that keeps falling through

    DriveTime Automotive Group Response

    We are disappointed to see your feedback. As a company, we do not tolerate favoritism. We encourage you to reach out to the Talent Support Team to discuss your concerns more in depth.

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

    Pros

    Excellent management. Guaranteed paycheck regardless of sales and a commission check every month. First salaried sales job I've ever seen with commission. Room for growth. Closed every Sunday.

    Cons

    Cold calling is never fun, but it's an important part of any sales job. Sometimes the weekly call goals were too high to reach when making multiple sales or a particularly tough sale in a day.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust call volume expectations to individuals based on sales instead of having blanket goals and requirements.

    Pros

    Great benefits, You get to meet many wonderful people, Great learning opportunities

    Cons

    There needs to be more investment in the employees so they don't feel used, they are what keeps the brand alive.

    Pay can be more realistic and competitive (incentive wise/Bonuses)

    Advice to Management

    The employees should be a higher focus in keeping the brand strong, we know it is about profit but it does not come without their hard work and sacrifice.
