    I have been working at Scott-McRae Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great professional atmosphere. Stay busy on the phone helping customers with their car payments. Competitive pay plus bonus plan. 401k plan and many benefits.

    Need options in the medical insurance plan. Additional time in training would be helpful especially relating to the individual departments.

    Doing good job. Like the new team lead positions.

    Pros

    its a job so I don't collect unemployment and food stamps

    Cons

    Management is the worst. If you don't kiss butt you are consider on the chopping block. Job is always in a threat. You can not share any of your ideas and if you do your head is back on the chopping block. You do it the managers or supervisor way even if its wrong and you know its wrong. You do it and then have to film record everything they tell you because they will say the never said that. This is a horrible place and the heart ache at Dss is very stressful. Management don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the owner of Dss. Clean out your management people and start over they are destroying the company you have work so hard to create.

    I worked at Scott-McRae Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    FLSA is a joke to this company. They force new staff to work 55-60+ hours but are considered "salary" making less than $1,000 every TWO weeks. I sure hope the new wage and hour salary level is implemented soon bc these jerks will have to change their policies or I see lots of litigation in their future.

    Cons

    There are no pro's for this company so please see the above since I wrote the most important con above.

    Advice to Management

    When you say you give paid holidays, like New Years Day, then provide the Holliday. On a day the biz is closed such as Sunday, give your staff an actual paid day off other than the two separate days off during the week. I just hope the EEOC comes to see the internal operations this company utilizes to bring the few employees left some justice.

    Poor management, doesn't value the employee

    Be honest, don't tell the employee what they want to hear, then go back on your word

    Pros

    This is a family owned company with a rich history. There are many great people to work with. The automotive business is a challenging and interesting industry to work in. There is a lot of training and support for you to grow professionally.

    I really don't have any. I feel blessed to be doing work I enjoy in a fun and supportive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees the way you are. I am excited about the health and wellness program.

    I worked at Scott-McRae Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bonus when it pays. And that is about it.

    Cons

    There are not enough allowance of words to express the cons for this company. If you are not a suck up then you can forget about having any type of career here. They treat their employees like dirt. The ones that work their butts off get treated like scum. The ones that BS all day get treated like royalty. I would not recommend this company to anyone. The work culture is depressing. Many nights were spent crying and worrying about my job as most others did. The pressure they put you under is unreal and their expectations are not even obtainable.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. This whole place from the top down needs to be cleaned out if it wants any chance of succeeding at all. I'm not quite sure how they've made it this far.
