    I have been working at Park Place Dealerships

    Pros

    -Base pay is decent, but taxes and deductions eat it up quickly. -Good benefits, Incentives. -Often busy pace, There is always something to do.

    Cons

    -The hours and general scheduling if left alone can leave a lot to be desired, Often chewing up your whole day. -Promotion is seemingly possible, but unfortunately with as many deciding factors as there are in the automobile service, and sales industry, it is very easy to slip up and have that be the cause of getting passed over for a promotion or bonus. -The constant feeling of micromanagement is felt in just about...

    Advice to Management

    -Allow one to take ownership over their work and perfect it. -Make promotion an even more attractive and attainable incentive, not just a carrot on a stick in front of the proverbial donkey.

    I worked at Park Place Dealerships full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, lots of time off, great vacation benefits, freedom to work your own deals without going back and forth.

    Cons

    Unbelievably awful pay plan - much greater responsibility than other places with far less compensation. Mgmt holds salespeople accountable yet are not accountable to salespeople. There is no real traffic, all opportunities must generated by incessantly calling orphan customers.

    Advice to Management

    If salespeople are going to do the job of both finance mgr and salesperson they should be compensated accordingly. I honestly couldn’t believe how bad the pay was for all that’s expected of you. If this group was as good as they congratulate themselves for being they’d be unstoppable. Working here was a supreme disappointment.
