    Pros

    Nothing to write home about..funny that they begged the people below to write good reviews to cover up the truthful ones.

    Cons

    Poor management, low pay, low morale, and did I say low pay?

    Advice to Management

    Your business doesn't exist without your employees..show a little care and respect. You might just keep the good ones around. Don't beg people to write good reviews because others have spoken the truth..

    Sorry to hear your opinion. I am not aware of any begging for reviews going on here. Our pay plan is competitive with others, it is performanced based, we pay the high achievers well. Morale is the ... More

    I have been working at Town East Ford full-time

    Pros

    Management always has my best interest front and center. They always want to teach me how to handle circumstances in the best possible professional manner. I was an Advisor a couple years back. I thought the grass was greener, it's not! I found that I had a lot to gain here, and they hired me back. Working here enhances me, my family, and my wallet.

    Cons

    No enough qualified applicants out there to fill the spot we have open. We need people to come apply, and be part of our team. Tons of customers to serve.

    Advice to Management

    Put in a small deli and coffee bar for customers, and employees to use, its the new trend, and its nice.

    I worked at Town East Ford full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job selling cars. Daily training and nice management.

    Cons

    They have horrible people skills. It's a blame game when something goes wrong. They take from gross to pay for lot damage or missing keys that have nothing to do with the sales staff. 80% sales staff are green and not guided just sink or swim. It is a shoving match on the lot with daily issues about whose client it is. the staff are unprofessional and lazy and if you work hard you get to make up for their work. Not a place for people with a sense of professionalism. This is a stop through while you get to where you really want to be at.

    Advice to Management

    You can fire million nonproducers but fire that one that get away with everything and does whatever he feels and you will see a change people will fall in line after that.

    Pros

    Management is up front and honest, no gray area. You know where you stand and what expectations are. I honestly prefer that, most dealers these days will lie to you, cheat you out of pay, etc. I can honestly say that the pay is good for the time put in, and they respect your time off, when you have it off.

    Cons

    None to speak of. This place really is a nice place to work, even though the facility is a little dated, it feels like home.

    Pros

    The car business has always been pretty tough. The hours can be long. I have found that Town East Ford has made it worth the time for me. The New Car director treats his people well and the used car department is also good people. They offer training every day to help us get better too!

    Cons

    The hours can get to you but the money can be awesome.
