    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Lia Auto (More than a year)

    Pros

    Your co-workers can be great people.
    Occasional perks, like having car work done or inspected while you're at the office with discounted rates.
    Corporate location in radius of many places to get food.
    Not usually too much interruption outside of work hours.
    You are allowed to listen to music

    Cons

    Management and hierarchy needs a lot of work and restructuring.
    You have to clock in and clock out and will be penalized if you don't.
    Benefits are very stingy, and taking your vacation is very difficult and/or discouraged.
    Raises are the bare minimum, and once a year.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees better, encourage culture, trust your employees and their degrees, and give them better benefits and reward their hard work, you'll see less turnover.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Lia Auto full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice showroom. Comfortable environment for customers. Big inventory. The sales people and most of the office staff at the dealership.

    Cons

    Dealership managers spend an inordinate amount of time sending instant messages and sharing facebook and youtube videos with each other. They browbeat sales people even when the salespeople are successful. They have no idea how to motivate with an occasional kind word. Their compensation structure very convoluted.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect for your employees. Train people better and treat people with respect. Don't tolerate or promote racial or ethnic slurs.

    Pros

    Good place to ruin your family life.

    Cons

    Salary plus bonus but bonus is not based on sales like the rate sheet says that you sign it is based on gross profits on those sales.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be a bit more employee sensitive. Honesty would go a long way. Much further than sarcasm.
