    Pros

    The work environment at Lithia is full of positive and motivated people all working towards a common goal. The employees here genuinely care about you. By far the best business I have been apart of.

    Cons

    Hard to list any negatives with this business. I honestly can’t complain.

    Keep it up!!

    I have been working at Lithia Motors part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Closed Sundays. Schedule is M-F from 4pm - 8pm and Saturdays 8am-8pm.Guaranteed hours, lunch provided on Saturdays, 4hr shifts M-F 12hr shifts on Saturdays. My employer knows that I am a student and is allowing me to work on homework during the downtime while at work. Work on your own for the most part. Safe environment. Complimentary coffee and water for the customers and employees.

    Cons

    Days can drag on if the dealership is not busy. This is not the job for you if you cannot handle a little bit of responsibility and multitasking. Predominantly male run field. Provided lunch is chosen by the sales manager for the most part.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nicer to be able to alternate Saturdays with someone instead of working EVERY Saturday from 8am-8pm.

    I have been working at Lithia Motors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm new enough that I can't fully assess my situation. But so far, everyone is really pleasant at Carbone and I've quickly been made to feel comfortable.

    Cons

    I'm not sure that I can fairly assess this either; especially as I have limited experience of working for a large corporation. Yet there is an impersonal nature to this that I need to adjust to.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure that I have any. But I can say that my manager shows some leadership qualities that I really appreciate; though he can be a little terse at times.

    I have been working at Lithia Motors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None I have found but hoping

    Cons

    Hiring seems to be partly out of stores control and you get stuck with people your region rep thinks is a good fit. Payroll is terrible, no control at store level and long term employees tell me people always get shorted.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your people so they stay

    Pros

    Nothing that other companies offer.

    Cons

    Favoritism

    Ongoing verbal and physical harassment from co-workers.

    Threats and retaliation by management for reporting safety and harassment issues.

    Hopes and dreams speeches but no actual change.

    Advice to Management

    Worst Work Environment Ever.

    I have been working at Lithia Motors full-time

    Pros

    An opportunity to make a great living for your family when working for this company in sales or service.

    Cons

    None. I have a lot of experience in the auto industry and Lithia is among the best places to work of the "large auto groups".

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - Lithia lets each store General Manager run their operation in a way that best fits the culture of the community. Lithia is heads and tales above some of the other auto groups because they do not have "cookie cutter processes that detract from the ability to deliver locally appropriate customer service.
