    Family like environment, chances for advancements, different every day

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing, that pay is good. Lots of feast and famine, but you feast well.

    Cons

    Micro management sucks. No time off. Management doesn’t care too much for you.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t micro manage us to where we hate coming to work.

    Pros

    Little, they are a joke and will use you. You will not be happy and will waste your time with them

    Cons

    Everything, they will use you and when you are settled they will ruin it and you will be unemployed. They do not care.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest

    Cons

    Money. Don't expect to get paid anywhere close to the national average for your position. My advice to incoming applicants would be to fight really hard for the salary you want during your interview because raises are hard to get once you're an employee

    Pros

    Plenty of up to date technology and training. You can see the intent to build a strong team clearly. And it’s working....I’m seeing things come together!

    Cons

    The hours can be rough. Plus, when you put enough passionate, knowledgeable people together for a whole lot of hours things are going to happen. Some of the unfortunate things blow up into bigger problems than they ever should have been.

    Pros

    They are for the most part friendly. They seem to have a good idea for how things should run although most of the staff in Medford has zero dealership experience. Benefits are better with lower co pay and cost.

    Cons

    The execution is terrible, they have fallen short on every promise. They cause more problems by "helping". There was no Holiday bonus for even though we were promised nothing would change until January specifically our holiday bonus's. GM's and controllers can't even give bonuses to employees who deserve it. They are a mess and can't handle the volume they are purchasing. It will eventually crumble at this rate and for that reason many of the new employees they aquired are not participating in purchasing their stock

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word to your employees. Stop trying to cut corners, haste makes waste and it had taken much more money and time to clean up after your mistakes than if you would have done things right the first even second third time.
