    Pros

    Longo is #1, great perks/benefits, everyone is nice and great to work with, and being able to make a difference in a guest or future team members day makes the job rewarding in itself. Longo has always been my go to for service and purchasing family vehicles.

    Nothing beats a 5 minute drive to work

    Pros

    Great company overall. Some great leaders and several average managers run the company but have great built in processes to handle just about everything. Very good owner of the company. A culturally diverse company as well. Lots of opportunities to make money.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is terrible. Rotating schedules. Work nights, weekends and holidays without extra pay. Some coworkers are completely sleazy people because of the competitive nature of the job and will get by with more than they should because of poor judgment of certain decision makers. The company promotes the value of doing the right thing but clearly will not follow through if it could possibly make them liable for something instead of actually doing the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    Almost every manager at this company is great with very few exceptions. Maybe one thing that would be beneficial would be if they were themselves more consistent and consistent among each other. Some days it was ok to do one thing and the next day it would not be. Some days one manager would authorize a transaction only to have another manager later that same day give you the run around when you're already agreed on terms with a customer and the prior manager that already went home. Very frustrating to not know where you stand with your own decision making when it varies day to day and sometimes even within the day.

    I have been working at Penske Motor Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work with great people. Everyone gets along, everyone works hard, everyone laughs alot. The pay is good (could always be better) and there a good benefit package.

    Cons

    Open positions take a long time to fill so people have to work even harder then they already do. But when someone is hired they're the right person, so I guess it is worth the wait. You do have to have a good work ethic and be willing to put in the time to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great benefits! Awesome work culture. As long as you're willing to put in your fair share of hard work, some downtime for fun will come naturally. Your team members become your family.

    Cons

    Bad location for lunch options.

    Advice to Management

    Please figure out a way to keep your employees engaged and motivated- many team members here become complacent over time.

    Pros

    I actually work at a non Penske dealership it's called Maguire auto in ny so I'm not sure how it all works at pmg but I know Greg Penske and I can only amagine how it would be to work for him he's got to be the classiest down to earth person I've ever met so hopefully one day I will join the team at pmg and can't wait when it happens

    Cons

    When your as big as they are things unfortunately will fall threw the cracks

    Advice to Management

    Never think you can't help someone succeed

    Pros

    You get paid and decent benefits.

    Cons

    If you are looking to advance must be willing to suck up to management. Point proven many times.

    Advice to Management

    Try abiding by "The Penske way," all the time and not just when corporate leaders are around. Treat all employees with respect and gratitude.

    I have been working at Penske Motor Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One thing that makes working for Longo so great is that, I feel the company looks out for the well being of the employees. As a automotive technician, the company ensures that all the equipment that I use is properly maintained and all safety precautions are taken to ensure that we are in a safe environment to perform our duties.

    Cons

    There are very few things that I could honestly complain about the company. A downside of working for a such a big dealer such as Longo is that, as a service technician, movement upwards to become a full line technician may take longer than other smaller dealers due to the amount of technicians working at this dealer.

    Advice to Management

    A word advice that I could suggest to management is to maintain open communication with all employees.
