Someone from each department would win $100 every month at the luncheon, with opportunity to win up to $1000.
Support from management
Supervisor at the time made me a scapegoat sometimes. He's no longer there. Other co-workers were great.
Commissions paid by department sales so we all cooperated.
Auto dealer all require too many hours from parts personnel, especially salaried people.
I would still be there if I hadn't found a job much closer to home.
If a dealership is sold, often the new owner will fire most of the managers and bring his own people in. Otherwise the job is secure as long as work performance is good.
It's difficult for a disabled person to work many positions at a car dealership.
Worker safety, especially in the repair shop, is taken very seriously.
Automotive parts work is always challenging and can be high pressure at times.
Suggestions for improvement
- Close parts and service departments earlier on Saturday, allow standard holidays (open on Memorial Day, not an industry standard).
What I like about the company
I like the car business and this is one of the better dealers to work for.
What I dislike about the company
Long hours for salaried people, average 55 hours per week. Without commission it would be little better than minimum wage.
