I use to work here and to be honest management is horrible two faced and scattered they never know what’s up or down. I feel sorry for the sales team they work hard and get screwed over. The lot staff are over worked and pushed like slaves. They are all nice up front then when you are gone the true colours show. Not to mention the training is lacking very bad there. If you are going to apply you have been warned.
Pros
Find a new job
Cons
To many to list

One of the best dealerships to work for unfortunately no room for advancement after many promises. Seniority and favourites will be picked over qualifications.

There's a great culture established here, with older advisors willing to help along new advisors. However, if you're not established or willing to spend all your extra time out of work prospecting, it's hard to get going.
Pros
Free dinner once in a while
Cons
Two week rotation of shifts

Always treating guests and others with respect.
Learning new skills while being yourself is key.


Push your limits.

Only yield when required, but not to your daily challenges and what you think you cannot do.
