Company Culture

Drivetime is very unorganized! They recently had a series of layoffs last year, no loyalty at all.

Career Development

No real clear communication in regards to professional development and career growth.

Overall compensation for your work

When it comes to compensation, we were one of the lowest compared to industry standards.

Office / Work Environment

They are afraid to terminate toxic non producing employees. They don't realize by doing thus, you're creating a toxic environment for others.

Job Security

I spent 5 years there, they called me in one day and laid me off.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More transparency from upper management. Drivetime is deeply political when it comes to promotions and advancement. They focus on whos willing to stroke their ego instead of providing results in order to get promoted.

What I like about the company

You get a free driver to drive.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of transparency, no communication from upper management

Company Culture

They tell you its a family team environment but then managers start playing favorites, feeding people better leads, etc. On top of that its too much constant change. Every week its some new policy/rule change. Upper management doesn't empower store management so all they do is let the shit roll down hill which turns into extreme micro management.

Support from management

Again, if you speak up about things you dont agree with, whether respectfully or disrespectfully, you will have a target on your back and that will be all she wrote. Not only I but multiple employees have been forced out because of this. Not too mention they enjoy gossiping and making fun of older employees who can't keep up with the pace of the office at times.

Teamwork

Management plays the role well but once they feel slighted or just don't like you, the teamwork suddenly disappears. Because of this the culture becomes less about teamwork and more like a traditional dealership, dog eat dog.

Freedom to work independently

As mentioned before, you are micromanaged down to the letter and have to report your every move.

Internal Communication

Monotonous. Same emails every day. Team meetings its the same thing every time. And when upper management comes they do their best to patronize you and make you feel like they are with you in the trenches while trying to sell you on corporate ideals.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Makes fun of them, not supportive.

Career Development

If you meet the numbers and want to move up you can, you just have to relocate out to no mans land for a while.

Office / Work Environment

You honestly end up not knowing who to trust. Definitely can't trust management unless you're a brown noser.

Work-Life Balance

You're a salaried employee that will be scheduled to work 45+ hours a week for no additional pay. On top of that you are expected to stay late depending on customer volume in the store, no matter what time you're scheduled to get off and even just trying to leave on time when its slow is a crime.

Company Image

Smoke and mirrors

Job Security

They have been on a firing binge the past year. Every few months they find a reason to purge veteran employees that don't agree with their new company vision.

Inclusive / Diverse

It was very mixed when I was hired. Black, white, asian. Then it turned into a White Frat house. And now the only two minority sales, myself included, advisers have left.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Promote leaders, not star sales people.

What I like about the company

The job is not hard and can make great money when its busy. Base salary plus commission.

What I dislike about the company

Constant change, too much potential for influence over someone's commission, lack of consideration for people's time
