I have been working at AutoNation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There is not much. I like all the people I work with and helping my customers solve their problems. I also love the challenge that comes everyday from different situations

Cons

They only listen to corporate managers. There is no input from local managers at the dealerships. Most of the corporate managers have no "real world" experience. They only look at ballance sheets. There is no incentive to work harder. If you do they will change your pay plan to something lower because you make too much for your pay grade. There is no longevity bonus as advertised. I've worked there since the inception of the company and have never received one.

Advice to Management

Need to listen and act on advice from managers at stores. It seems that you only listen to senior managers at corporate headquarters only. What about the longevity bonus? Listen to the rank and file of the company. Most of your employees are not happy. If your employees are unhappy you will not have satisfied customers. Be flexible on policies that do not work for every store.

    I have been working at AutoNation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You meet great people, that are just as underpaid and over worked .

    Cons

    You are not treated like a person, more like a machine due to extreame work load. No Raises..... Given a lame excuse when you ask for one. No recognition for anything. Management & Corporate dont care about you. Benefits suck for such a large Fortune 500 company. Contsant turnover. Now open on Easter and extended hour's. Uniforms are not flattering and make some look sloppy. Its all about "who you know " not how hard you work, or dedication. Tons of responsibility with no compensation. Departments dont communicate. Frowned on when you ask for hard earned time off. Management shows favoritism. Upper management only sees dollar signs, and bottom lines. High-End should be treated differently, the customers demand more. Only the Best should be at the best ! Very little room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Screen employees better. Its ok to be picky. Especially in High-End.
    Give reviews and at the very least a cost of living raise.
    Help with benefits, you know you can.
    Train your employees, we cant be productive without it.
    Keep HR issues truly private.
    High-End should be kept that way. Uniforms are sloppy.
    Care. We have families too.
    Be more realistic with demands and deadlines.
    Show appreciation, especially around holidays. Bonus and a party.
    Wake Up. You have tons of unhappy, underpaid, & underappreciated employees.
