General Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg Beach, MB11 February 2018
Birchwood gives you an amazing environment to learn and grow professionally and personally. The management at Birchwood really works to promote people within, and put value on family/balanced living. There are various leadership courses and support that you can have to continue growing within the group.

Unless you are in thier "boys club" you are just a pawn...moved around as they see fit
Manager (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB10 January 2018
Used to be a great company but alot of key people left amd their replacements are ruining the companies reputation.

The chipmans are wonderful people but it stops there.

The pay is terrible compared to other dealerships/auto groups and they intentionally cut wages every year.
Pros
Can advance easily if you know the right people
Cons
Long hours, low pay, promote the wrong people

high pressure demands and low pay with long hours
Collision Consultant (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg15 July 2015
Worked as a collision consultant for Birchwood for 4 months.Was promised $50k to start which dropped to 36K about 1 month after starting. Workday is 8.5 hours and you will usually work more than that for free.
High expectations to keep customers happy but no back end support and low pay. Customers will be yelling at you quite regularly as there are severe delays in getting cars repaired in timely fashion.
Pros
cant think of one
Cons
long hours, low pay

Temporary position
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB19 February 2015
Its a great competitive company to work for and will teach you a lot about sales and the sales cycle. The company is still stuck in the old ways for the car sales industry and could use a fresh business development perspective.
