    I worked at Park Place Dealerships full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In terms of working in the retail automotive space, I cannot imagine a better company to work for. They truly care about the "client experience" and will go above and beyond to do the right thing to ensure the client is happy. I worked at the Dallas MB dealership and the management and culture at that particular location are second to none.

    Cons

    At the end of the day, the car business + retail = difficult work/life balance. That is not a Park Place problem, but just the nature of the industry,

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Fun place to work! Great training, not just for your specific job function but training outside your scope of practice. They really groom you for success whether you stay with them or not.

    Cons

    Schedule is tough if you have a family

    I worked at Park Place Dealerships full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This is a very good place to be a salesperson, tech, service writer, and what I will call a foundation level employee. They treat these employees pretty well for the most part and generally try to do things the right way. Kudos to Park Place for trying to do the car business better. It's a pretty cool dream and I think they live up to it mostly, if you are a foundational level employee.

    Cons

    The further up you as an employee rise the more the organization is just like every other car dealer. Park Place does not pay competitively for managers because they say they treat you great and you have quality of life. The truth is they do not pay you very well and you will be subjected to much politics, HR that has an agenda besides fairness, and senior managers that can be stereotypical hot heads and lack vision....

    Advice to Management

    To management: Take as much care choosing your managers and live up to the dream of doing the car business the right way, from bottom to top. Pay your managers better and stop resetting the par for your pay plans every year. You remove any reward for tenure and building a good department by raising the target every year.

    I worked at Park Place Dealerships full-time

    Pros

    Training, certification, employees, benefits (although a little expensive) and recognition. If you must work in the auto industry this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Lacking true work/life balance in some areas, accountability in some areas and feels like it is growing too fast. Some of the employees who have been there a long time say they are losing their family feel.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, looking into work/life balance. Some employees work long hours and don't take their days off consistently.
