    I worked at Spreen Honda full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A paycheck for the first week or so of training, where you just sit at a computer and knock out honda computer training... if you don't show up right when they open and stay after you are "allowed" to leave, you'll get fired. As a salesman, YOU DON'T MAKE HOURLY PAY. You are there to SELL CARS. That means if you are there from 9am until 11pm, then OH WELL. Every Holiday weekend is MANDATORY to work open until close, you will EASILY work 100 hours on a 4th of July weekend or Memorial Day weekend, etc... You'll make good sales that weekend ( if you are good, and if you are lucky it's a mix of both), but then the rest of the month will be totally DEAD.

    Cons

    Owner is a spoiled rich kid, and the managers are "yes men" and are best buddy buddies with the owner. The managers blow up your deals . YOU are not on commission. The managers ARE on commission. If they don't like YOU (and they are HATERS, so they might love you or outright hate you)....If they hate you, they will push super hard to upsell people, and won't give up until the customers literally leave from frustration, or give in. If they like you, they will try to up-sell a little, but but give up and help you get a sale so you have good numbers and keep your job.
    If you don't hit your numbers you get fired. Simple as that. Shady co-workers will try to steal your sales. The managers will let them, if they like them. It's hard to hit the sale goals because the dealership is in a pretty horrible location. People come in from the bad parts of Colton, San Bernardino, Fontan, etc.. They have HORRIBLE credit and you waste 5 hours being nice to them, but it's literally impossible to get them approved!... Had a woman with a 410 credit score bring a co-signer with a 398 credit score! Beyond ridiculous!
    If you just flat out need a short term job, hey GO FOR IT. But they are CONSTANTLY ghiring salesman, becuase they LOVE to keep a small team of managers and "good ole boys" and then take advantage of newbies who either end up quitting or getting fired over very petty and pathetic stuff...
    One guy tried to buy a car for his mom, the manager reused to talk employee discount numbers with him... he eventually bought a honda at ANOTHER DEALERSHIP! DEAD SERIOUS! He drove it in and the manager got SUPER irate and the guy basically quit on the spot and got hired the next day at the other dealership! I have WAY more bad stories then good stories about this dealership. If you are serious about being a salesman, don't bother with this place. You will probably deal with similar things at other dealers, but this place takes the cake. Also had one manager try to short me on my paycheck, MANY times! Like I said, petty immature BS. Not worth it,

    Advice to Management

    Get some class. GROW UP. Stop trying to sleep with the female product specialists and the all female team of appointment setters. You guys are married and it's pathetic, it's inappropriate and unprofessional.
