    I worked at RK Chevrolet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There's not a lot of business so there is a lot of down time. Clean, brand new facilities. Benefits fall in line with rest of industry.

    Cons

    There's not a lot of business and it's hard to make money. Management blames you for the lack of business coming through the door. High turnover rate. Employees that have been there for awhile get away with whatever they want. Expect to be yelled at in front of customer. Service department over charges. Parts department has a 400% markup on many parts.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Don't expect a quick fix to everything by hiring and firing someone new.

    Pros

    Upper management is very smart and very motivated
    Family business that been in this area in the auto biz since the 1920's (almost 100 years)
    Straight up
    You always know where you stand
    They are fair
    Opportunity for advancement if you are motivated in that direction
    I have seen them promote from within - they go outside only when there is no one to promote
    Open door policy on all matters
    If you are willing to work, you will make money

    Cons

    Long hours
    Always open (seven days a week)

    Pros

    Most of the employees were helpful and friendly. Company does have a stronger pay scale in some atributes of the different divisions within a dealship.

    Cons

    Upper management not always fair in the way they treat employees, The company is never satasfied with even employees that are productive and profitable on a daily basis, not just once in a while.

    Advice to Management

    Still need to be firm with employees but more fair with options for the personal side of lift. Company should have more options of advancement within.

    They promote from within and value loyal employees. Lots of 20+ year people. Family owned so access to management is great- friendly people- straight up business to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from within and keep up with the training, bonuses, incentives, etc. to get the most enthusiasm out of the employees.
