Only reason I left Jim Pattison, cause they put a wrong person in a wrong position, It was so smooth to work for my previous GM, He left because of his family issues. Don't understand why Jim Pattison won't hire him back!

If your looking for a place to advance in your life and are not willing to bend over backwards for the management team... GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. If your not willing to work for a management team that couldn't manage a daycare then go somewhere else. This company only hires within if your on the brown nose side. If you actually are a good employee and want to move up in the business GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. It's your typical corporate workplace. Managers are making big money while the little hard working employee works much harder. I showed up first and always left latest... still get nowhere.
Pros
Product is awesome
Cons
working with people who dont deserve positions

This company wants to make money selling cars in the simplest and cheapest way possible, even if it's dirty.

No thought is given to the future, just to how many targets can be met next quarter to make management bonuses
Pros
Part of a big company, not going anywhere.
Cons
Too many problems, not enough solutions. Old boys club.

Just an absolute poor place of work for attitude and ethics. Just terrible. Not many happy faces...most are fake.The management attitude on work safety is just disgusting. I'm really ticked!!
Pros
Fellow workers friendship, close to home.
Cons
Work attitude, work ethics, employees not following rules of more seniority workers, garbage attitude on work safety.

This auto group is great place to work specially if you are new & want to get into this field.

If you are committed to climb up and you are new this auto group always welcome you (providing there is an opening) and gives you the opportunity to challenge yourself and put yourself to the test.

There’s definitely a lack in training, I found that they expect a lot from you. Management is poor that needs to be improved. Benefits are great that they offer.
Pros

Garbage company to work for. Extremely toxic work environment and terrible management - starting at the very top with the President.

I was told in my interviews that benefits would kick in after my 3-month probation. They didn't kick in until I had been employed for 7 months. Took 12 months to get a raise even though I had been told in my interviews that I would get my first raise after my 3-month probation.


Stay away from this god awful company.
Pros
Pays the bills (barely)
Cons
Long hours, garbage management, terrible pay, everyone is a liar
