Assembly Line Worker/repair (Former Employee) – Dearborn, MI – October 1, 2015
A typical day at work was exhausting I learned I do not like a fast pace. Management did not care how you felt. my co-workers were fine they understood how I felt. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the line. The most enjoyable part of the job was joking with co-workers.
Enjoyed my time at Ford Motor Credit. It afforded me many opportunities to learn about finance and customer service. Great company to grow with, especially if you enjoy traveling and open to relocating.
The retail auto sales business is not for the weak of heart
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – September 28, 2015
If you enjoy being lied to and dismissed as a liar, thief and hegemond then this job is for you. The benefits are a fantastic amount of pay for a couple of hours of work, The down side is that you don't do anything of value until you are doing that couple of hours of work. Mostly, you sit around and leave messages on peoples answering machines or send inane texts to people who only want to know you long enough to take advantage of your good nature. This business is at best adversarial not only between buyer and seller but also between manager and salesman. High stress and long hours.

shop manager is egotistical, he cannot look beyond his own benefit to work with anyone. Is very close minded and cannot step back and see the bigger picture when working on new problems/concerns. attacks them with the same routine every time.
