    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. If you are into sales and love cars, managers will help you out.

    Cons

    As with sales go, if you don't keep up and follow up with customers, then managers will quickly notice it.

    Advice to Management

    Take charge and lead and don't let software control decisions. Software has great benefits but it can't dictate and control following up with customers.

    Pros

    If you're customer oriented and a People-Person, you can make a good living.

    Pros

    Friendly staff ( at times) being food on Saturdays & not open sundays!

    Cons

    Very disorganized, you get blamed for a lot of things that you didn't do. Rude staff at times. No place to grow and pay sucks

    Advice to Management

    Pay more salary wise & get organized. Be able to move up.

    Pros

    Job can be very fun sometimes. General manager is excellent. No haggle price model better than the traditional car sales experience.

    Cons

    Long hours. Periods of sitting around doing nothing. Some coworkers will undermine you. Stressful like any sales job.

    I have been working at Jim Koons Automotive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, feels much like a family after a while. Flexibility in hours. Open door policy with upper management. Several locations that provide opportunity to move around if necessary.

    Limited opportunities for growth depending on the department. Competitive salaries for only some departments, not overall company wide.

    Continue having an open door policy.
