    Pros

    -Big Company
    -Growing opportunity
    -Always busy and always hiring
    -Gym at the facility for employees
    -Good benefits

    Cons

    -Some departments have very poor management.
    -Constantly changing pay-plans (Never in employee's favor)
    -Always short on staff support.
    -This dealer is always busy. If you work by commission you will be doing well. If you don't work by commission or pay-plan, you will have more work for probably less or the same money than working in another dealer.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you always have enough personnel; this can avoid bad review, customer complains, and customer satisfaction cost.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Penske Motor Group full-time

    Pros

    I can not think of any pros.

    Cons

    The only one of the reasons this company has such a strong almost 5 star rating. Is they make you fill out a glass door review on day 3 of your first week. I remember they were very pushy about it too. I didn't want to fill it out until I had a better picture of the company. But of course you cant just tell your new employer that you are not going to do something that they are telling you is part of the new hire process. The management is disrespectful and unprofessional. The whole place is like high school all over again.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect your employees
