    Pros

    Working here is cool because it a family vibe type of company. Welcoming, flexible, and understanding.

    Cons

    The automotive industry is so up and down so really it's just more of what brand you work for under Jim Ellis and that brand hopefully don't have managers that don't know what they are doing and that they don't let go of. Jim Ellis really holds on to people. You have to do something really stupid to be fired, seems like.

    I have been working at Jim Ellis Automotive Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Do what you want, how you want to do it

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and communication to name a couple.

    Advice to Management

    Put actual leaders in charge who know the product and can assist when short handed. Culture change for the better, especially communication and wasteful use of resources. Have managers boost morale, not the opposite

    Pros

    THERE ARE NONE TO TELL

    Cons

    They tell you that you are hired. You have some "" Training Class"" before you can start. I hope that you are ready for the surprise of your life!!!! There is a $700.00 charge for this training class, that is not told to you until after the 1st day. 5 hrs. a day and believe it or not, you are not getting paid for your so called training!!!! Was told by the "" Trainer"" that if you do not pay for the course, you will not...

    Advice to Management

    You do not need to have a useless training course that nobody wants or needs.
