Tough office enviroment
accounting (Former Employee), 104 Federal, WestminsterJuly 17, 2015
Never satisfied Office Manager or upper managers. More stress than it was worth. Enjoyed my time helping with phones but couldn't work on anything from my desk at the phones. Most enjoyable was talking to other stores but that was 15min of my day.

Sales Executive (Current Employee), Pembroke PinesJuly 14, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company

Excellent corporation to be associated with
BDC Specialist / Appointment Setter (Former Employee), Greenacres, FLJune 19, 2015
Pros: good atmossphere
As a team member, my appointments & sales were equal to the 2 other members.
Generated repeat business through successful client follow-up.
Consistently followed up with customers to get their feedback on their showroom visit.
I was able to discuss their situation and assured them that I work closely with the
General Manager and this gave me increased be back appointments.
My appointments to show was over 80% and this gave me a 48% to 52% sales ratio.

Pros: Convenient locations and good benefits
Cons: growth opportunities as the accounting departments were consolidated out of state

A fast paced environment that your always challenged and great
Collision Administrator (Current Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 14, 2015
Pros: great oppurtunities
Cons: none
a typical day at work starts off with high volume of phone calls with customer needed additional information about their vehicle and due dates of repairs working with many great, smart people and Managers that reach out to help at any time. There is never a time that I feel something is hard I feel I can challenge myself to do better or figure things out

Be Read for a culture shock
PC-Ops Analyst (Former Employee), Pembroke Pines, FLMay 31, 2015
When I initially started there the culture was good. Started off with some issues with one of the managers there that seems to nit pick at everything but once he was under control the culture was great. Everyone got along, the job functionality was functional, the work load became light was we had a system going and things were moving along.

They hired a director for the department and everything changed. He was obsessed with first call resolution for a company that uses a minimum of 100 3rd party vendor applications and systems that requires time when dealing with a user on the phone. With that, he changed the culture to a call center environment where calls are always backed up in the queue, the customer satisfaction has declined and employee morale is pretty much gone.

Auto business not for everyone
Anonymous (Former Employee), FloridaMay 17, 2015
It's all who you know, not what you bring to the company. Really a grind, long hours, little pay. Weak benefits. Inconsistent management and application of policies and procedures.

Business Development Manager (Former Employee), Clearwater, FLApril 22, 2015
Pros: meeting people
Cons: management unable to determine how they could use my skills
I started to work with AutoNation from the beginning of opening. I was trained/exposed to different aspects of the business from Greeter to showing customer all features of the automobile, outside and under the hood. Being a new establishment there was a need for further growth and development. Management had me in a Business Development position, supervising reception staff and other non selling positions. They were unable to advance my duties as they we undecided where they needed my skills.
