    What you put in is what you get out.

    Working the weekends, working late nights, some holidays, can't really work your own schedule.
    While I was there we had good managers.

    More communication, understanding employees goals within the company. Figure out what your employees goals are, advance the people that are doing good and move them up within the company.

    Pros

    pay is ok if you come in at a decent rate no chance of pay raise only cut backs

    Cons

    snakey sales program selling certified vehicles that no one has even looked at then doing the certification if needed later. crap used cars with problems sold as cherries. constant over load of work that is never disclosed to employee extra overtime no pay,extra duties that commisioned sales people do without pay.if you like being abused and over worked this is your place.

    Advice to Management

    stop treating your people like you own them and realize that every dumb idea you come up with affects real people who dont have the luxury of being born right.

    Pros

    If you like working long hours and not having a life with no income to show for it. This is your place. You will love it

    Cons

    They do not develop their staff. That is why they have to hire their managers off the street. You only find out about the bad stuff by working there and why the turnover is so high. The management staff is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your supposed to be your greatest asset. Learn how to development them. Stop milking the "best place to work" It is not voted on by your employees. It is a marketing scam and you should be ashamed of yourself in the Houston Corporate location for allowing and supporting the work conditions. You are horrible people that created a horrible work environment with EXTREME turnover. Your bonus levels are almost unobtainable unless you are deceptive. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I have been working at Gillman Honda full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There was nothing great about working at this job in my opinion.

    Cons

    They hire people for a certain position, but give them more than 3 jobs to do at once. Get the job if you want to be running around every second and just going to the restroom you feel like you need to rush back to your desk. The place is extremely unorganized. Customers have to walk back and forth to buy parts. They go to the parts department to purchase a part, then they have to walk to the cashiers booth to pay for the part. Let alone the parts cashier doesn't even exist. The service cashier has to take the payments, even though they were hired for the SERVICE cashier position. When the service advisors call their customers to inform them that their cars are finished, they don't even bother saying "Your car is ready sir/ma'am, come to my desk." I have customers coming to the cashier's booth wanting to pay for their car and when I tell them that the service advisors would have all of their paperwork they get upset. Management is shady here. After working for 1 year some employees aren't even assured a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being cheap to your employees. If you give them so much work , atleast give them a raise. Tell your service advisors to be more detailed when they call their customers to come in. Tell them where they should come to pay. Don't trick people into working for a certain position and then give them another position on top of that. If you guys say you were helping a department out atleast get them to hire someone for that position if they had to let that person go. Instead of making these poor girls work 3 different jobs at once for change money. If you're hiring for a porter, put on the application "hiring for porter" not a greeter.

    "NO RESPECT"

    Pros

    The other sales people who work there are for the most part nice people

    Cons

    They dont teach you how to do anything but listen to directions. They want you to just be a sales minion for the rest of your life. The distribution of sales leads is extremely unfair. The accounting department always 'forgets' to give you all of your money in your paycheck which causes alot of confusion. They have no respect for the sales people because they will hire everyone who applies - this helps overall sales but hurts each employees chances of hitting their bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people, not like disposable assets. STOP HIRING especially when it is slow. 40+ sales people in a 250-300 car per month dealership is too many!
