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

    Pros

    Comfortable base salary, relaxed work environment, coworkers are like a second family. GM and managers are great and teaching development. A lot of room for growth

    Cons

    Long hours, when it’s slow it’s slow and when it’s busy you don’t have time to eat. Company is going through growing pains and it’s difficult to adjust to fast moving changes

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting pressure on your sales advisors when you miss budget. Instead of placing blame find areas of opportunity on improving for the next month

    Pros

    Great company culture, Dynamic, energetic, positive work environment, open door communication, competitive salary and bonus structure, good benefits, fell like I am part of a work family, after hour activities with co workers

    Open work environment (no cubicles) can sometime get distracting and hard to focus on work, but I can understand how it allows people to collaborate and get creative which has allowed DriveTime to thrive through technology.

    Advice to Management

    Request employee feedback more frequently.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers/ fun work environment / cool building / monthly raffles / good benefits / game room / gym /

    Cons

    Dealing with the worst customers/ no room to grow/ no raises/ management very disconnected with agents and expects you to lie to customers to bring them in/ calling customers multiply times a day to the point they are wanting to take legal action/ scheduled breaks and will get in trouble if you break anytime other than that/ treats you like a child/ hard to get time off/ promises 65k a year but bonus structure makes it hard to bonus - read the reviews of the company online and really ask yourself if that's who you want to represent
