    I have been working at Park Place Motorcars full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hands-down best training and growth opportunities, lots of camaraderie and team building get-togethers, catered lunches on Saturdays, management that is genuinely interested in your well being. Pay in sales is top notch, great benefits. Plenty of opportunity for paid time off; two weeks of vaca per year, every year (once you hit 10 years you get 3 weeks per year), sick pay, etc. Great discounts on vehicles.

    Cons

    Poor communication between sales and service departments. We're all on the same team. Let's communicate effectively. You'll get 6 paid holidays a year, including your birthday. Do not expect to have any vacation the last quarter of the year. Time off during this time period is strictly controlled and usually not accepted.

    Pros

    Park Place and Mercedes Benz pays you to lease a Car after working there for 3 years, Fun place to work, management is friendly, awesome benefits, 401K, Complimentary life insurance, always providing us with the tools we need, the newest technology at our finger tips, terrific training programs, most of the clients are nice, Park Place rented out medieval times twice, Cowboys Stadium twice, Ranger stadium four or five times, and six flags for company and family parties for employees.

    Cons

    Managers Sometimes take a long time to move people up mainly because no one ever quits. so it can be hard to move up. hard to trust the sales managers to give you the best employee deal when purchasing pre-owned or new cars. found it better just to purchase elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. and Sales don't pick out Your favorite employees to give better deals to when purchasing cars should be fair to all Employees.
