    I worked at Park Place Motorcars full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful facility, great sales training, access to lots of tools/resources to help ensure success in your role, catered lunches on Saturdays, monthly team building events, vehicle lease subsidy

    Cons

    It can be a challenge to rely solely on showroom traffic to support your sales goals/objectives. Also, there may be too many employees to support the amount of walk-in traffic.

    I have been working at Park Place Motorcars full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They do employee good people - some managers but mostly front line employees. They have nice facilities- probably some of the best.

    Cons

    Leaders do not listen or care what employees think- most stay in their ivory tower in Las Colinas. Our training department has gone downhill. What happened? No one can give honest feedback on the Evolve survey. Pay plans are always changing.

    Advice to Management

    Rewind back to 3- 5 years ago. Revisit your core convictions. I remember when I first started years ago and went through orientation - what we learned and felt was amazing- our history, our culture, leaders that care and listen. That is the company I want back.

    Pros

    The people you work with and the education you get. Actually my last employment date there was 2009

    Cons

    Automotive Technician on commission can be a con or a pro depending upon the economy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep strong with the company values.

    I worked at Park Place Motorcars full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about this place are other employees (non-management). The good people get overrun by the bad employees and turnover is constant (but they will lie about that too...)

    Cons

    Well... I doubt there's enough space for the cons. The corporate people are the biggest con. And cons they are. They talk about unwavering integrity, passionate service and personal commitment to excellence as core convictions - but they are the POLAR opposite of all of these. I doubt people would be so upset if they were just honest about who they really are - just another dirtbag group of car dealers who only care about money. If you do decide to take a job here, just know you will be overworked, underpaid and undervalued.

    Advice to Management

    Sell already! You've ruined it. A bunch of uneducated clowns.

    Pros

    I work with some of the coolest cars in the world, the company cares about its employees and tries to show that with yearly events and quarterly get togethers.

    Cons

    As a Tech you are subject to the ups and downs of work flow which is never good for your wallet, and it only worsens as more and more dealerships are opened meaning customers do not need to go to you they can take a shorter drive. When the cash flow is at a low for the techs no one is there to help you. You just suffer with your check that could be 20% lower than you are use to.

    Advice to Management

    The technicians should be taken seriously not like a tool everyone uses to get what they need, ultimately the client comes first but if techs don`t have some kind of guarantee to fall on when times are rough it will leave a sour taste in there mouth and urge them to walk away from the industry completely

    Pros

    The clientele are great to work with. Excellent benefits. Internal educational sources available.

    Cons

    Some customers are challenging. Demanding results. Pay is altered by 40% based on CSI survey.

    Advice to Management

    Remove CSI from the equation. No one EVER wants to give poor quality service.
