Slow paced.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There really has been no proof they need a Shuttle Driver as i do not get many hours. Currently i call in at 4:00 p.m. to inquire whether they need me the next day. This week Monday to Thursday i got 4 hrs in. The staff all seem very friendly and respectful of a fluent mix of people and welcoming. A negative is that all employees have to contribute $10/mth for a social fund. I work mornings, only, so i do not get the benefit of any of the social events so i believe your involvement should be based on hours.


Meeting people.


Not busy.

Fun Workplace

I work at Kia Peru, and it was good work for the payment, but the environment was so toxic. The people are not so good and I didn't feel good there. .

Best work place environment ever

I got offered a job in sales but I'm having some issues with some paperwork due to the recent government strike. My Manager and General Manager made me part of the time and they put every effort to keep me employed and part of team. I've have been treated more like family then just an employee, the effort my team makes for me is like no other, I am personally grateful!


flexible and committed


non so far

burn through staff

Zero respect for employees as people. Rather employees are viewed as a number, just a headcount. only way to be acknowledged for your work is to be a squeaky wheel.

Look further

If you have other choice, don’t hesitate!! Management team takes no responsibility, no respect to fellow employees, fair low salary when comparing to other companies with similar responsibilities and duties

Terrible place for Lot Attendants

Constant tasks from management with minimal support while dealing with frustrated customers. Too much responsibility for a casual job. Terrible experience.

Stressful and overworked

The service department is a revolving door. Stressful, thankless job. Your basically glued to the phone all day and barked at to rip customers off on their service appointments. Money is all that matters. "Family Business"..... yeah right

Don’t do it you can find something better

The kots are not good people. Don’t work for them. Biggest con for me was pay periods were based off the salesman. So you have to get an advance and whatever then your remainder is.


They give you a turkey around thanksgiving and Christmas gift of $50 gf and/or Kia gloves or toque


Will ask you to work OT and not pay you for it. Terrible wages

Awful management sets you up for failure

Management sets you up to fail. Refuse to train you, but get angry when you don’t do things their way. A lot of illegal practices going on here, if amvic walked in they’d shut them down

A place to be proud to work for

This dealership makes employees and customers feel like family. Amazing bunch of people to work with. They go above and beyond for customers. Sales manager is the single most kind person I’ve ever worked for. The controller also goes above and beyond to make sure you’re being looked after. It was definitely very difficult for me to leave this work place.


Free lunches/breakfast, Christmas parties, positive work environment, dental benefits, working as a team

Environment was toxic immediate supervisor was not a good fit for his job

Revolving door for employees much back stabbing. Upper Manager was good but unfortunately moved on.Apparently now all new employees including management.


Excellent vehicles


No support or acknowledgement of job well done

Stay far away

Demoralizing place to work. There is no work life balance. Expected to work extremely long hours everyday and frowned upon if you left at a regular time, as per your contract. Management is unapproachable, especially Director of Marketing, delusion of Grandeur. Glad I got out for my own sanity.




Long hours. No life work balance

Do not apply here any positions

Managers are horrible and they don’t know how to manage the team and leading a team. No training and yelled a lot. I don’t mind they yell me after trained . They do not have any training and no education very unorganized system. I didn’t learn anything from here. As a salesman don’t do anything here. Worked more than month i still didn’t have business card and they don’t update my profile photo in company website. I did only sales call for 12 hours


Closed to my home

Stay away

Never worked for a more demoralizing workplace. Management treatment of staff is subjective. You are just a number, expectations were unrealistic and never shown any gratitude, manager took credit for your work


Long hours

I absolutely love my position at Kia (Smithsfalls)

I have now been with Kia for 1+ years and I absolutely love my job and everyone I work with. The majority of employees have been there for over 5 years. Which speaks volumes. The manager goes above and beyond to accommodate everyone and their specific needs. She is very compassionate, caring and understanding. I am beyond great full for everything Kia has done for myself specifically and others. It is a great place to work and I would highly recommend to otters.

Great Place to Work

Penney Kia has such a fun culture and everyone is treated like family. Keep lines of communication open and there are lots of benefits both socially and financially

Mauvaise concession

Mauvaise expérience, mais demeure que kia tient à coeur ses clients. Je recommande si la direction traite bien ses subalternes.
