Typical day is busy. Winter tire season is very very busy.
Learned a lot about the business.

Management was fair.
Hardest part of the job are the long hours.

Great place to work. Good program and offer. Management team is great and they do care what you think and hear your voice. Standard health care, group insurance, and car allowance. Recommend.

Equality and opportunity for advancement! The Steele Group gives all the resources and training for you to develop and grow. Management is approachable. The top down winning team culture is contagious.

If you are interested in getting into the exciting world of all things automotive, I highly recommend Steele Auto Group.

Management are poor quality and lack people skills. Too many are hired to hit sales volumes with little or no training. They let videos do the sales training for staff.

Was a manager and received no support. No one cared how I felt about anything and staff turn over was crazy. Over 20 people left 1 dealership in a year unhappy. Could not address any behavior issues and they only care about $$$. Worse and most unprofessional environment I've ever seen.

What can I say, upper management talks about wanting to create a positive environment to attract top talent but then wonders why they can't hire top talent, or actively lets it go for no reason. Pay is average to poor, no job security, expensive benefits etc... I can't think of a single reason you'd want to work here over any other job out there. The only legitimate perk is you get a good discount on parts and service
(thesales incentive or discount is a joke)

Easy place to work except for the fact that you are expected to wash 50 cars a day which is impossible, yelled at for being to slow. Management has no respect for the people working in the wash bay. However the benefits are good if you can make it past three months.

Over my time spent with Steele auto the store was a revolving door , could not keep employees due to the poor management & environment. No room for advancement with in the company unless you are in good with management, even when short staffed and employees are asked to fill multiple positions . Managers and HR like to bully & dismiss employees problems and concerns due to their own egos . Employees are not always compensated for the work performed and have to fight for what is deserved. Your better off to look else where for work , as your not appreciated with this employer .

Management is incompetent. The departments all work against each other and you’re the one who gets the backlash from it. Very low morale. Coworkers are great. Hard to get paid times properly. Most enjoyable part of the day is leaving when your shift is over.

Can I just say, I love my job! It's only a small centre, so doesn't have the same 1 in 500 feel of a typical large call centre. Managers are approachable and attentive, we can voice our concerns without issue and they try to make it a fun, team based environment! Yes, there are calls to be made and you won't get rich in the role but the hours are great, there is a monthly bonus if you work smart and the new office is awesome!
Pros
Small, new office, great hours, bonus, benefits, management
Cons
Pay could be better, that's about it!

with over 30 years as an auto technician i can say the 2 steele owned car dealers ive worked at were the worst places i have ever worked,,
both operated to the same guide lines with maximizing company profits by regularly taking advantage of employees at every opportunity,,

the management are completely unqualified to lead,
mostly because of the low pay, they wouldn't attract any real professional with leadership quality's and experience,
they treat technicians as uneducated labour , and give no perks, not even a turkey at x-mas, nothing,

lunches are frowned upon and forget about breaks,

they made up their own flat rate book at the second dealer i was at that paid far less than industry accepted manuals such as chilton and motor, and only followed dealer times when it suited their interests,,

the easier ,money making jobs , like brakes etc. all go to apprentices and steele invest nothing in their learning towards journeymen status,

the difficult ,low paying work goes to the more senior experienced techs,

its very hard to make an 8hr day if your a journeyman, you need to be somewhat resourceful, or just out right crooked, which seemed to be un-spokenly encouraged, especially financially,

all departments seem to work against each other, i never understood the reasoning in that,

just a terrible and toxic place to work, it amazes me i stayed there as long as i did, lots of empty promises,,
Pros
picing on car parts at 10% above cost
Cons
low pay, long hours, toxic work enviorment, no bonus or perks, no respect, no parking for employees, could never get time off apporved, 6years to get 3 weeks vaccation, no raise in 8 years

Quite a lot of competition, hard to be promoted within the company unless you have ties with upper Management. Enjoy the Christmas Parties and Management does treat their employees well for the most part. Busy, but always on the go and the day passes quickly. Hard to get raises within the company, unless your sales, and good at it.
Pros
Amazing Christmas Party
Cons
Hardly any pay raises
