    Pros

    In my 5+ years of experience with Penske, I have felt supported and given opportunities to grow with the company. It's great to feel the support of working for a large company while still having the ability to make an impact on your area of the business. I couldn't be happier with the decision I made years ago to come and work for this company. Great company, great environment and most importantly, great people!

    Cons

    Be prepared to work hard if you want to be successful!

    Pros

    I am honored to work for a company that truly cares about their employees. They want to see you succeed and offer the training, support, and tools to make sure
     you flourish in your career. Competitive benefits, flexible hours, and great employee perks on cars and other services are offered. Awesome team mentality and environment.

    Off-site parking which can be inconvenient at times but not a big deal overall.

    I worked at Penske Automotive Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They care about their employees and reward them for their performance. The happiest last 2 years of my work life. I moved on to other opportunities but I wouldn't mind if I ever had the opportunity to come back. If your a good performer they watch the numbers closely so you will standout, be recognized and appreciated. Benefits better then most and standard coverage for our industry.

    Cons

    Because it's a desirable place to work advancement opportunities can be limited depending on your location. Most people stay long term until they retire, higher positions are filled quickly with many waiting for the opportunity. So it may be awhile for your chance to move up, unless you are willing to relocate or just wait it out. You may be stuck for awhile or indefinitely. If your in sales or finance expect to work long hours, but that's normal in this industry. Benefits offered have high deductibles again standard for our industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! The training and support was very helpful in my role. Thank you. Forever grateful and appreciative.
