Your (2) main jobs are to make 50+ sales calls and sell cars. Provide excellent customer service experience when selling a car. Educate your customer about our financial contract. Your co-workers are your team. They will help you close a deal if you need help. The managers are there to help you as well, however, they do micro-manage from time to time. The down side of the job would be the work-life balance. They will allow PTO, but they will make you feel guilty about it if you are not up in your sales or call volume.

Technician II (Former Employee) – Montclair, CA – August 15, 2016
It's all good except the uncertify management that think they are on top of everybody. Leads like to give techs hard times and then leads play victim role when techs respond to the abusive behavior that's brought to them
Inventory Associate/Detailer (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 30, 2016
Drivetime is fun place to work at if you like hands on experience with cars and employees can be somewhat annoying but you can just push them away. management is good sometimes but you never know when you will be going home, either 2:30 or 5:00.
free lunches, breaks every 2hrs and sometimes you go to Austin to go pick up more cars.
people have bad attitudes and management is somewhat slow
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – July 22, 2016
This dis riptide of the position of customer service rep said computer work, phone calls and helping customers. I had a phone interview and he told me I would be outside helping people. I'm no, that's not what the description says. He told me I had an interview because I sounded like a fit and he would email me the interview information. NEVER Got an email. Then I got an email a few days later saying I wasn't a fit and they chose someone else. Why lie? This is why you keep having to hire people. I wouldn't trust This company. Sounds scatchy and full of unfolded promoses. They're SUPER UNPROFESSIONAL!
Sales (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – July 21, 2016
I went there for an interview last week there were no customers in the store. With me being in the car business for a while I am used to seeing some type of activity in the dealership. The managers were rude and it was a very bad environment and I am so glad that they didn't call me back!!!!!!!!!!!
Automotive Lot Technician (Former Employee) – Glen Burnie, MD – July 20, 2016
This particular location is an amazing place to work!!! The energy in the dealership is amazing! The encouraging behaviors are infectious!!! The benefits are out of this world!!! Great place to work! I'd go back a thousand times over again!
A typical day included making popcorn, making phone calls, and talking to customers who are in the market for purchasing vehicles.
I learned how to help customers obtain affordable vehicles, financial proceses, customer service, driver licensing verification processes, what it takes to advance to each level desired. To many other subjects to list.
Co-workers where driven and competitive, but we where a team in the end.
Hardest part of the job was mandatory Saturdays and never knowing exactly when you would get off.
Most enjoyable part of the job for me was educating customers throughout a somewhat tedious process.
TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Winder, GA – July 6, 2016
Fun work place and good people first is a lilttle much to get to but well wouth it, i learned alot about the use of different tools and working with new and different people.the hardest part of that was getting there because it was so far away the best thing was the food parties
Collections/ Customer Service (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – July 2, 2016
everything from people environment and compensation was outstanding just some of the managers didn't know how to interact with employees and the way they recruit for advancement could use some adjustments
A typical day at work consists of hitting the phones, then taking some customers, and hopefully selling a car or two. When you get a chance, you then go check the inventory in your back lot. The management team is very hardworking and helpful, the most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction between the customers and my colleagues.
Detailer (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 26, 2016
i miss this job. i worked Mon through Friday, with sat and Sunday off, 11 dollars an hour, get to detail cars. cars are my passion, wish this place wasn't far though. i learned many detailing tips along my journey. The hardest part of this job though was having to clean a really dirty vehicle within 15 minutes. all my co workers were friendly except for one, he had no respect for your belongings on your cart. The most enjoyable was having Saturday and Sunday off, and getting paid 11 an hour and also working 8 hours. i will forever miss this job and ill miss Richard blasco my supervisor.
