Money Hungry Company with NO compassion for employees
Customer Relations Manager (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARJune 27, 2017
If you are fond of people who take advantage of you being a hard worker but don't want to reward you in any way, then you have found the company! They will rush you for projects, customer satisfaction, etc. You'll go above and beyond, fix everything for them, get their ratings up the highest it has been in over a year then they'll cut you loose! There is ZERO job security and NO chance of advancement. Management is a joke that will tell you your doing a great job then turn around to "higher ups" and say you're doing horrible. This job will also consume your life in every aspect.

Good for a car guy
Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  ArkansasJune 8, 2017
A good place for the experienced pro to work. Tough on beginners that don't have enough experience or savings to sustain the lean months that are part of the car business.

There is always work to do In the corporate office, which is where I worked. There was very little diversity in the corporate office. The pay was ok at that time.

They don't pay their employees, sales managers are shady characters, very very hierarchical system. They only care about their wallets getting fatter and care nothing for their own employees.

Internet Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARMarch 31, 2015
A typical day at Crain Automotive included early meetings and frequent testing fro product knowledge. I learned a lot about the auto sales business while working there. Thwe management tam was supportive and knowledgeable. The hardest part of the job for me was the long work days. The most enjoyable part was meeting different and interesting people daily.

Long hours for under minimum wage.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, AROctober 5, 2013
This place is only for die-hard car salespeople. If you're willing to work from 830am to 8pm Monday-Saturday, make cold calls to strangers, tolerate a few inept managers (most are good, but some are horrendous), F&I guys who will steal your money from the front end of a deal, and a general "bro" atmosphere (homophobia, sexism, etc.), then this place is for you.
Pros
No cap on how much money you can make.
Cons
Certain managers, shady finance people, "bro" atmosphere, owing the company money if you don't sell cars

Only interested in their bottom line
Accounting office (Former Employee) –  Sherwood, ARDecember 14, 2012
If you want to work in sales, it is probably about the same as any other dealership. But any other department is always short changed when it comes to pay, promotion, consideration, compensation, help, training, or anything else. All they are interested in is selling cars. They are not concerned with there customers after the sell or their employees. High turn over in the accounting office due to unfriendly working environment.
Pros
if you want the same pay, same hours, same attitude everyday, than it's ok.
Cons
no individualality

Office Admin/Receptionist (Former Employee) –  North Little Rock, ARAugust 13, 2012
Crain Automotive is one of Arkansas's biggest car dealership and working for them can be both good & not good; depending on what you're doing. I started off as a receptionist and eventually becoming the Office Admin. My time there was actually good and I really can't think of anything bad to say. I can't speak for every other position, but I did see a lot of things! The co-workers were always great and it was always a great day!
Pros
meeting new people!
Cons
crooked salesmen
