    I have been working at Lithia Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed company culture at corporate. The people are nice. Great place for growth, if you don't mind getting paid poorly.

    Cons

    Pay is low and benefits need improvement. They try to pay people in "atmosphere" at the company. Admins are called "analyst" or "specialist" and don't analyze anything .

    Advice to Management

    Hire people experienced/qualified to do the job and pay them appropriately. Rapid growth has caused a lot of this disorganization.


  2. "Lots of opportunities for internships"

    Pros

    Overall, the company is great. Good benefits, working conditions, wages.

    Cons

    There's really so much more they could do in terms of internships in order to develop more local talent for their local business.

    Advice to Management

    I think you could easily put together a more structured and formal internship program for University students in Communications, Economics, Business, Emerging Media & Digital Arts, Mathematics/Statistics, and Computer Science. This would be a real asset to both the community and to Lithia Motors.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. But that seems to sum it up. Oh and you get sundays off because of blue law.

    Cons

    Pay is minimum
    Management is counter productive
    Were told is JAN that no raises would be given out for the second year in a row

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate those employees that go above and beyond.
    Want 110% from your employees? Dont say we're not getting a raise in the first week of the year.

    Pros

    Stock options are nice to have.

    Cons

    Service and shop managers are lazy, incompetent, and bad tempered.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Lexus, lazy, riff raff, shady mechanics and also get some managers who know how to run the service departement besides being overly concerned about ONLY getting positive reviews from customers! Get real team leader's who will actually do the problem cars they're getting paid to do instead of taking all the easy jobs from other subordinate flat rate mechanics!

    Pros

    Terrible work environment. You are just a number and mean nothing. Expect pay changes frequently, cost cutting so the GM can make more and you suffer...

    Cons

    GM steals from sales people. Moves money around so there commissions are less. Do not even apply for any job with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and do something.

    I have been working at Lithia Motors full-time

    Pros

    The environment in office is great. The leadership gives you the flexibility to really run with ideas, as they have an entropuneral spirit. It has been a while since I've enjoyed going to work every single day, but I truly do now. Those who are self driven and hard workers will do just fine here. Everything in automotive moves quick, so be ready to go with your hair on fire.

    Cons

    With the dealerships running the show on most decisions it makes structure at support services to be a challenge. Although I understand the GM's need to have the power to run their own business... I also believe they should understand it has to fit within guidelines. Compensation I have found to be really low, but I would rather work somewhere I love than get paid a bunch.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the company, but remember Support Services is keeping everything together as much as possible while the growth is happening.
