Deceptive practices in every possible way
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Dallas, TXOctober 29, 2013
Pros: on-site cafe
Cons: must wait until first day of the quarter following 6 months of tenure for benefits/401k, no company match on 401k
There is no $6,000 pay guarantee. You have to work about 60 hrs per week with split days off (Sun and either Wed or Thu) and no day off the last week of the month to make a $2,000 'draw' which they find every nit-picky reason to deduct from.
The "managers" don't communicate with each other or you. The environment is very unprofessional (racist, sexist – more... jokes, etc).
People are quiting or being fired left and right.
Worst place I've ever worked (including fast food in high school) – less

Friendly is a nice place
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJune 26, 2013
Pros: unlimited commissions, cafe located on site with free food on saturdays.
Cons: veterans who take half your sale, if you're not bi-lingual it's very difficult to find customers.
Selling new cars is not as easy as most would think. Long periods of boredom, followed by brief periods of insanity best describes the new car business. When selling cars, it's not so much what you know, but who you know. Much of your business is referral based and repeat customers. Lots of leg work and prospecting is needed to build a client base.
Friendly – more... is a GREAT facility, 20 acres of vehicles, and generous pay scale. If you've already built your client base, you can do very well here. Doesn't hurt to be bi-lingual either. – less
