    I worked at Herb Chambers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None, None, None, None, None

    Cons

    No real understanding of what it means to furnish high end luxury vehicles. Has Managers with only 5 years in the industry working with a high sophisticated buyers as if it were a "stressed credit" market. Aggressive attitudes by Sales employees creates a very poor work environment. Upper Management is from outside of the area and does not relate well to the local climate and market.

    Advice to Management

    Drop your ego at the door when you come in and you will have success. Your The majority of your client facing staff lacks the proper background, education and way of being to ever raise your CSI to area standards. One last bit of advice; don't sign a long term lease for a living space---

    I worked at Herb Chambers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck... That is all

    Cons

    This is for Infiniti Westborough BDC Service: FAVORITISM- management only allows certain people to do whatever they want and targets the less liked employees. No flexible hours, crappy benefits, minimal holidays (and snow days) off, High turnover rate (for a reason), EXTREMELY micromanaged. The manager is MISERABLE and unapproachable, she is only nice when management is around. There is no employee appreciation, it... is made VERY clear how irrelevant you are. These previous good reviews must've only been completed by CEO's or management because they are the only ones content with this company.
