    I have been working at Kendall Auto Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They not only take care of you as an employee, but they pride themselves on taking care of customers during and after the sale. Pay and benefits are attractive.

    Cons

    Not many. Communication between sales, service and parts departments could be better at times. The hours can be long occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of what makes this company function well!

    I worked at Kendall Auto Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a pay check.

    Cons

    Employees do not matter. You are a replaceable number.

    Advice to Management

    The office manager where I worked ran around kicking, stomping, cussing and crying in the office. I've literally never seen anything like it. Wow. If you want to have long term employees, pay attention to what is going on at your locations. WOW

    Pros

    What I enjoy most about Kendall is the managements team's commitment to its employees and the community. They really do strive for excellent customer service.

    Cons

    Because it is a retail environment there can be late hours.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing

    Pros

    The people that work here are great. Many, many lifelong friends made.

    Cons

    This used to be a family company with a huge stress on taking care of our own, and looking out for one another. No more. Expect all the family vibe of working for FoxxConn or the government.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what you were. You used to care about your employees, now we're just numbers.

    I worked at Kendall Auto Group full-time

    Pros

    Nothing I experienced while there.

    Cons

    It felt like working for a ponzy scheme, all the managers care about is making money off of you. They can just create what your commission is for any vehicle and play favorites for who they give more money too. Training was non-existent, hands on that is, they just sit you in front of a computer and figure you will make it or not. Don't care about anyone's family outside work, just making them money. I started looking for other jobs my first week in.

    Advice to Management

    Have some balls and interact with customers. You are no different than the Wizard of OZ behind your curtain. Salesmen are nothing but puppets in this business, yet you take their advice and you receive all the blame.

    I have been working at Kendall Auto Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good sales floor support from lower management.

    Cons

    Ridiculously high pack assessed on to each car for the dealership's overhead. Awful scheduling. 100+ hours every 2 weeks required.

    Advice to Management

    Have more respect for your entire sales team. If everyone could sell cars, everyone would. Allow the salesmen who actually sold "the car" a chance to make money without UAing the customers trade. Employees perform better when they aren't repeatedly told that they are expendable.

    Pros

    - Selling and working with cars and auto parts, if you're in this profession, if probably a "pro"

    - Opportunities to move up are available if 1.) you know the right people 2.) you make a good impression 3.) you make a good effort

    Cons

    - Strong "Good ol' boy" culture behind the scenes (this can be true for any auto-related business)

    - Standard fare office politics and drama

    - Employees are left in the dark about serious business changes that can impact financial stability

    Advice to Management

    Upper management - keep an eye on your middle management. Keep your employees informed of any upcoming serious changes to the company so they can insure their own financial stability.

    Pros

    The job itself was easy to learn and in an open environment, didn't feel "boxed in" like other office jobs.

    Cons

    The sales team and managers can be dramatic, but usually it wasn't directed towards the receptionist. That, and cashiering for parts and having to tell people how much key fobs cost.
