    Pros

    Good work-life balance, benefits, easy company to support since the brand is very love-y.

    Cons

    No real downsides per se aside from mediocre pay, it's just a very average corporate environment without anything enthralling ever happening.

    Advice to Management

    Hold higher hiring standards so that employees can be compensated better. It does no one any good when all the sharper employees leave the company for better money and better use of their skills/knowledge.

    Pros

    Lots of support from coworkers and management. Tasks are manageable, basically only focus on answering phones and taking payments.

    Cons

    Only downside is I wish there were headsets for the phone instead of constantly having to physically pick it up everytime

    Inside and climate controlled. I am able to make good money on commission but the volume is too unstable. Too many people with there hands in the pot.

    Cons

    At a desk for 10hrs a day. I prefer to do blue collar work and make decent money while also keeping in shape.

    Pros

    Loving, growing company that enjoys helping. Very easy product to sell.

    Cons

    As the company starts to grow, they are starting to cut pay plans. As any other large company would, the more money they make, doesn't necessarily mean the more money you make. The have made it harder to get paid by them by raising OLP Score Bonus', raising Referral Bonus Score, etc. It will only get worse in the up coming years if they don't help us employees out better.

    Advice to Management

    Don't only think about the customer. Think about the salesman helping expand your business. We are a huge part into why you are raising in sales every year. We need to feel like we are experiencing the growth as well. Cutting our pays, when we are breaking our backs to sell cars for you, shouldn't mean that every year we continue to make the same amount. We should be growing in income as well.
