      I have been working at Fletcher Jones full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      There is no doubt this dealership and service center has the potential to be a shining star in a world of dilapidated and outdated dealerships. The facilities are state of the art, truly a cut above the norm. Access to some of the best cars in the world, with a large inventory from which to choose (although more than half the cars you'll sell are stockpiled a mile away off-site, not fun on cold days/nights) There...

      Cons

      With regards to Mercedes-Benz of Chicago: Greed on a level of gluttony as senior management finds every way possible to cut as to ensure all commissioned, hard working staff know they are easily replaced and worth the absolute minimum. Top managers have their hands in your pocket with their “pay plan”. To use that term loosely I cannot go into specifics regarding the pay plan on this forum however I will tell...

      Advice to Management

      Your staff are worth more than the bare minimum. Start listening to your veteran and talented staff & STOP stealing out of their pockets! Get yourselves back to basics: sell cars, make money &have fun. You have all but abandoned all three with the direction the store is currently heading under current management. You're going to get out what you're putting in. Stop putting in the absolute minimum and...

      I have been working at Fletcher Jones full-time

      Pros

      Great work environment. You get to meet very interesting people. Some of the managers are nice and willing to help. Lots of tools and training available to get you that extra volume. The hours of operation are pretty good. Decent benefits.

      Cons

      Pay plan, pay plan, pay plan. As of a month ago, the new GM changed the pay plan. It's the lowest paying pay plan in the luxury segment. Every other Mercedes dealer in the area has a better pay plan. It's not worth the time and headache. You are better off working somewhere else. They want you to sell more for less. Unrealistic sales goals. This is the no1 Benz dealer in the region, I can see them dropping off from that...

      Advice to Management

      Don't inflate your bottom line by taking away from the sales teams.

      I worked at Fletcher Jones full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Got to drive expensive cars and that's pretty much it.

      Cons

      Management is incompetent. They don't care about their employees. Will overwork you and pay you barely above minimum wage.

      Advice to Management

      Pay your employees a liveable wage. Also put people in management positions who actually know how to manage people.
