    I have been working at DriveTime Automotive Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn the car business, great team (depending on location), great benefits. Don't really have 20 words for the pros. Can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    Spend more time at the dealership than at home, no work life balance, very little money, micro-managed, little opportunity for growth, more focused on calls vs. sales.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees, make a more balanced work/life schedule, focus on selling and not everything but that. Don't preach advancement when you hardly do it.

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

    Pros

    As a sales professional, you will have a salary plus commission pay rate. Most companies in the automotive are commission only. The company also offers great benefits, 401k, and paid vacation(off on holidays and closed on Sundays)

    Cons

    Work life balance and going way way above and beyond to make the sale. You have to be willing to go above and beyond to close the deal. Sometimes I would be at work until 1am even though I was supposed to get off at 9. Also sometimes, I would have to pick a customer up, take them home, to the bank, to pick up money from a family member etc. I also had to wash the cars that I sold if the customer wanted their car washed. There was no person to specifically detail the cars. There are also black out dates for tax season mid-Jan to mid April, so if you have important things to do during this time then it may not be the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Be more mindful of the time of employees. I know that the whole goal is to sell, sell, sell. However, if an employee is supposed to get off at 7 don't make them take a customer at 6:45 when you know the process will usually take 2-3hrs if not more. Employees have lives outside of work. Also have someone at the dealership to detail the vehicles besides the sales person.

    Pros

    Great team. Great Management. Positive reinforcement. Growth Opportunity. Reasonable hours. Great benefits. Detailed and available to all metrics.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.

    Advice to Management

    Base phone call quotas on performance reviews vs a straight across the board standard number of daily calls. Efficient time management, consistency, and execution should out-weigh the concept of a consistent number of daily calls.

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

    Pros

    Company car and great benefits depending on your position. Free lunch on occasion however, most of the time the meals are a ploy by management to pick your brain and somewhat interact with you if you are the little guy.

    Cons

    Management is very emotional and bias based on favoritism. Very few African Americans will be satisfied or accomplish their career goals with this company. If you are a female in this already male dominated field with an armor of degrees and experience. You can forget trying to change this companies mindset because you will hit every known obstacle prohibiting from being successful.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. What you do for favorable employees should be done for others. Race and sex should not be an underlying tone at your centers. If you want to fix the problems at your locations follow through with the things that you say. Don't come in and investigate issues that go unresolved. Your people would confide in you if they did not feel like they would get fired. Correct internal problems and own up to mistakes as a company and the moral of your employees will change. By the way, one salary does not fit all. Pay people what they are worth and treat them accordingly not as if they are at will employees,
