    I have been working at VinSolutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This company is absolutely amazing! The feel of a close-knit startup, with the backing of a multi-billion dollar corporation. The culture is incredible. They're continually rewarding hard-work & making sure to clear paths for those who truly want to excel & grow. I feel proud to know that I'm actually selling a product that I whole-heartedly believe in. We take incredible care of our dealers & make sure...

    Cons

    We need more space for parking! We are hiring too fast to keep up (but that's not really a con) :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep believing in your staff & setting the standard for high quality performance. One benefit would be a regular "round-table" with sub-management level associates to really discuss the issues/concerns/enhancements/insight that those who are interacting w/our dealers daily in the trenches, can communicate. A lot gets lost in between the levels of hierarchy - direct communication is much more efficient in solving...

    Thank you for the review. We truly have a great team at VinSolutions! I love your comment about Roundtables and I have not been consistently doing them. Look for consistent ones to be scheduled for the remainder of the year. I’m targeting specifically front-line team members and ...

    I worked at VinSolutions full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Small depts, Bonuses, Some WFH ability

    No DIVERSITY Racist culture Disrespectful and unprofessional Directors Low pay No room for professional growth

    Advice to Management

    Hire a diverse workforce. Let go of some of the Directors. More diversity training. Pay people!

    It’s disappointing to hear you did not feel the diversity and inclusion of our culture during your time with us. Diversity and inclusion are major initiatives for Cox Automotive and at VinSolutions it is my mission and the mission of the entire Vin Leadership Team to make sure we ...

    Pros

    Great work/life balance Benefits Great team!

    Cons

    So many bosses, they don’t even agree on chain of command. A lot of finger pointing when stuff hits the fan.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more proactively, stop waiting to put out fires

    I have been working at VinSolutions full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and tons of PTO. Relaxed environment. Lots of opportunity for professional growth within the company. Monthly snack allowance or free gym membership - you pick. Nice raises and good yearly bonus. Lots of training resources. This last one may sound silly, but this has not been the case with most places I've worked - unlimited supply to kleenex and office supplies! No more having to buy your own tissues and...

    Cons

    You do need to be mindful of your work/life balance. I've caught myself working when I shouldn't frequently. Also, a few of the roles are underpaid from what I've seen - but overall the pay is really good for most departments. The plus on that is that HR recruiters wont waste your time - they'll tell you straight up what the pay for the role is before you get too deep into the interview process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on going strong! I've never worked for such a great group of people. I know Vin/Cox is massive, so I'm sure that there are some "yikes" managers in the mix - but in Mission, KS - every manager I have come across thus far is deserving of their leadership role.

    I love the positive feedback. Work life balance is very important, I think we all need to be reminded to unplug and focus on being in the moment. I am happy to hear you are experiencing firsthand the emphasis we place on the quality of our management team. I look forward to you growing ...

    Pros

    Leadership cares about people, benefits are comprehensive, and the team member support amongst peers is genuine and selfless.

    Cons

    No cons that management is not fully aware of and is working hard to improve, correct, or invest in to make better. Anyone coming to work here needs to know that it is not perfect but it is much better than most places. If you expect perfection go somewhere else.

    VinSolutions Response

    February 6, 2019SVP and GM

    Thank you for your feedback! It’s very encouraging to hear your thoughts on leadership. Team member feedback is valuable to understand our biggest gaps. I encourage you to continue to be open, honest and direct with your management team.
