    Pros

    The best reason to work for VinSolutions is the people. This company has a great culture and Leadership that genuinely cares about its customers and employees. We are guided by the principle of doing what is best for our customers everyday. Although that is not always easy it is sustainable in today's commodity driven marketplace. Great community involvement. Lot's of opportunity's for employees to give back. Solid benefits including: 401k, Insurance (Aetna), and an amazing amount of PTO even for those in year 1. Relaxed dress code. NOT a publicly traded company (private ownership Cox Automotive). That seems odd to put as a Pro, but other friends I have in the software space that work for competitors often complain about decisions made from PRIVATE Equity firms. Cox truly has a long term outlook on Automotive and is not in this for a quick payout. Overall great place to work. I feel blessed and energized everyday to come to work.

    Cons

    None that I can think of....!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the ship headed in the right direction!

    I worked at VinSolutions full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, Paternity time, Yearly bonus

    Cons

    It's a call center but they try their best to hide that fact. Metrics. Stingy than they pretend about work/life balance. Hype advancement, but dependent on metrics to even try for new positions so they could keep you in one place as long as they want to.

    Advice to Management

    When someone says they don't want to work in a call center or tell you they don't like a lot of metrics, be upfront about the job. It IS a call center, you do have a lot of metrics.
