    Pros

    Nothing but lots of stress. If you like stress, this is the right place for you.

    Cons

    From the first moment you cross the front door threshold on your way in until the very last time you cross it for the very last time on your way out.

    Advice to Management

    HR is unbiased and has many conflict of interest with lots of employees, especially if they are sorority sisters.

    I worked at Penske (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pro's were the employees however most of them got fired

    Cons

    You will have no life. There is a Good ol boy mentality. If you are not a white man and former military you probably won't advance. I hate to say that however it is true. HR doesn't have your back.

    Advice to Management

    Please do better by your employees. You can't fire and hire every week. That is not a culture for success

    Pros

    Good people. Fair compensation for management.

    Cons

    No formal training. Expected to perform at expert level on day 1. Healthcare is ungodly expensive. Most hourly employees can’t afford it and are struggling to get by while working 2-3 jobs

    Advice to Management

    Mentor every employee at every level. Lay clear expectations while ALSO helping your mentee(s) who might be struggling
