I worked at Sonic Automotive full-time (More than 5 years)

Pay plans don't reward for going above and beyond average sales. But pay good for average sales

    I have been working at Sonic Automotive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Prior to 2013, there were many pros, but Sonic Automotive is becoming just another big corporation with sights on profits only. The employees who make that happen for them are considered collateral damage.

    Cons

    Commission compensation is an insult to sales employees who work 60+ hours a week. Management hires are ill equipped to handle the high rate of employee turnover, are unprofessional in shouting matches with employees while customers present, and turn a blind eye to unscrupulous employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Sales employees are valuable assets to the future growth of Sonic Automotive. Fight for them!

    I have been working at Sonic Automotive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a job. not afraid to send you to training

    Cons

    More worried about shareholders than employees. Health benefits are lacking! Demand a lot out of technicians and are not willing to pay the median of what other places are paying. Does not take any suggestions. They have a system set up and call it an incentive pay, but really it is not they just take away money and never give any type of incentive. Have middle and upper managers that do not understand employees. HR department is not much help either.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees!!! and refer to the cons section.
