    Pros

    flexible hours, great benefits, very rewarding i think my job is a great one and would recommend it to everyone the hendrick org. has great values and supports it's staff all across the board

    Cons

    as a sales consultant you will be exposed to weather and you may put in some hours depending on how successful you want to be and at times the sales process can be slow but that's just becuase it must be done right when some one it buying a vehicle

    Advice to Management

    not really any big advice for the management just be as efficient as possible and keep providing great service

    Pros

    Great benefits great vacation time. The benefit package is excellent. That is the only thing keeping employees there.

    Cons

    Management favor employees. Unless you are a favorite you do not excel in the company. Raises are very hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equal

    I worked at Hendrick Automotive Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Solid Company with decent benefits. Many employees (although mostly at a corporate level) stay with the group a long time.

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours even by industry standards, Compensation in Upper Management pales in comparison to what any "A Player" is accustomed to. You're either a member of their "club" or you're not.

    Advice to Management

    To fill this out would be a total waste of time because even if anyone in the group with any authority read it they wouldn't change a damn thing. They already know everything after all.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Decent pay
    Cool employees

    Cons

    Upper management are sheeps in wolfs clothing. They pretend to care and listen and the moment you stick up for yourself or what is morally right you are turned on and have a target on your back. Tons of harassment going on and nothing is done about it. Micro managing boss. Not a leader one bit. Constantly reminding you of the mistakes you make when he was making the same amount if not more.

    Constantly degrading your character and effort of work. Lots of drama and pointing fingers

    Advice to Management

    Check your ego's at the door please!!! You have all these employees who bust their hump day in and day out for you.

    When multiple employees complain about a manger investigate it and do the right thing. Don't ignore it because you think he's profitable. Or compiles are these stupid excel spreadsheets to think you're saving money

    When your managers are constantly micromanaging you,Mistakes will be made because they are feeling the pressure.Treat your employees with respect and get rid of the motto that everyone is replaceable.

    Give your employees the space they need to work especially if they are making you money.

    Pros

    It isn't Sonic Automotive. The movie Days of Thunder was based on the founder Rick Hendrick.

    Cons

    Typical American corporation. Puts quarterly profits above all else.

    Advice to Management

    You can't be great if you are like everyone else.
