Inventory Associate (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 17, 2017
As soon as you get into the company you have people telling you that you need to watch out for a certain person or certain managers, they preached how they wanted us to have a good time during work but as soon as you talk they say you are not being productive even though you are getting your job done

Great career placement with a company that cares
HR Talent Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mesa, AZJanuary 15, 2017
I have nothing but positive things to say about "DT." An ever-changing business that works to stay competitive and developing. The leadership was excellent and they are serious about hiring leaders-to-be. That does come with the caveat that the the company has a strong culture that includes lots of feedback, so if you'e got the drive to succeed, are receptive and able to apply feedback, and open to new things there's always room for growth. Opening new locations every year, so you know they're doing something right. Conflict management was what I saw most of (being in departments that dealt with it), and both with customers and employees I was taken aback by the amount of energy expended at "doing right by them." As long as the concerns raised were reasonable, so was the response. The feedback was encouraged 360 degrees, and having receptive leaders that were in the thick of the action is really encouraging. My only "con" is really only because sometimes due to location promotions can be hard if you're not willing to relocate, or if you're in a specialized area where upward growth requires something different.
Pros
Good benefits and compensation, company works to make solid work-life balance, room for growth
Cons
Promotions can be tough depending on location

Decent Entry-Level Sales Position
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAJanuary 12, 2017
If you are looking for an entry level sales position, I would recommend DriveTime. The work/life balance is better than most retail environments and all other dealerships. However, the pay is mediocre and management and training are subpar.
Pros
Time off
Cons
Training, Management, Hours, Pay

Terrible Management
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Miamisburg, OHJanuary 11, 2017
No advancement in high school driven culture. Terrible explanation of any changes or policies. Promotions based on friendships over ability.

used to be a great place to work
Collector (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJanuary 11, 2017
The Culture use to be great but in the last 2 years it has declined and Drivetime, Bridgecrest do not care for the employees like they use to. There is only two managers in the whole place that if you are lucky enough to work for that make this place worthwhile. Upper management has no leadership skills. This is a great place to work while you continue to look for other places in the job market, But would not recommend leaving your current Job for one here.
Pros
pay and bonus are ok
Cons
Bad leadership

Work life balance sucks, but commissions sometimes makes up for the lack of balance. Hard work is often not acknowledged.

Can be a wonderful place at times
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 5, 2017
Love the fact that you can make money but the commission structure changes every year. The management is a hit and miss like most jobs you work for but overall not a bad 2-5 year job.
Pros
Money
Cons
Changes frequently

Puts off that they have a great culture, but...
Accounts Receivable & Payable Manager (Former Employee) –  Mesa, AZJanuary 4, 2017
...as soon as you want to get down to busy you're instantly labeled and blacklisted as being too harsh and too direct with employees. I hate to add that the gender gap between entry level and management is wider than the Grand Canyon. If you're a female in management, best of luck!

Easy Work, but management can be better
Inventory Associate (Current Employee) –  Delran, NJJanuary 3, 2017
Easy work, but despite what management says, not much room for advancement without jumping through many hoops to get there and would rather hire new people then promote who they already have to fill the position.
