Senior Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 August 2018
Great Customers to deal with, sales team is honest with customers, parts team members are very knowledgeable, Technicians are very skilled but slightly privileged, Fixed Operations Management needs improvement.
Sales (Former Employee) – Winnipeg – 10 September 2019
It's very easy to talk about the negatives. Dealership lifestyle is pretty much centered around conflict. Someone's car breaks down and they pretty much have two options: get it fixed ($,$$$) or buy a new one ($$,$$$). Neither of those chioces are actually fun for anyone with a tight budget.
If you can figure out a work/life balance with long hours of constant (sometimes heated) interactions. This place can work for you. And don't be shy if you dont know anything about cars. That is what veteran sales guys and mechanics are for.
You will learn. You will talk. You will eat the pizza lunch at the day disrupting, monthly team building rally.
Seriously if you are looking for work experience I cant think of a better place. I can't recommend this as a career though. The daily grind will eventually make you move on.
Dealership life. Mechanic friends, nice cars, day disrupting monthly catered lunches
Angry customers, bringing their lives down on you, for reasons that have nothing to do with you or the dealership...
