Management was sometimes hard to work with
When I slipped and fell one day and was hurt was not allowed to make a WCB claim

The most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to work on my own

Jim Pattison got his 'Start' in the car business. After all the years and all those millions made off of the backs of people like me. One would think that he would know or at least have people that know how to take care of their employees by this point. I guess greed trumps all.

Poor pay, unsafe work conditions, managers that use bullying or avoidance tactics whenever you ask for a pay raise. If you really want to work in the automotive industry, avoid the Pattison Auto Group at all costs!
Pros
None
Cons
Poor pay, low morale

The staff are great and fun to work with. However, work load does not reflect the salary. Productivity and quality of the end product is jeopardized as a result.
Pros
great co-workers

A typical day at work I would be seeing many familiar guest bringing in their vehicle for servicing. Working as a service advisor, I have learned a lot from the guest I meet and from the work I do. I have learned to be more productive, and have gained plenty of people skill experience. I have a very good relationship with the managers and employees, which makes working at Jim Pattison Lexus a fun and friendly environment for me. The hardest part of the job which happens very rarely is having a guest that is impossible to please no matter what I do and how hard I try. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing I have provided the best service I can and having my guest leave with a smile on their face and having their appreciation with the service I have provided.

Dreaded commission pay system. i was a producer during my time with them but it could be very stressful. I never had to follow a delivery through the delearship and that was nice change from other dealders. The co-workers were decent. I learned how professional a dealership can be run.
Pros
bbq's
Cons
long hours, commission sales.

A typical work day consisted of helping customers. I learned there is a big difference in customers, everybody is unique but all have the same basic needs. The most enjoyable part of the job was when customers picked up there vehicles. Can be a stressful job. You have to be organized and do your follow ups or you won't sell much.
Pros
bbq's
Cons
commision pay structure, you are only as good as your last sale. that was yesterday but what have you done today.
