Great People, Poor Practices.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 5, 2016
Although Friendly Ford was a great company to work for, they were simply over saturated with sales associates. A typical day at work is definitely a long one! As you know, there aren't many other dealerships nearby. They call themselves a destination dealership, which seems to be a problem for the customers as there were barely ever any. For the 36 salesman on the floor at any given time, there would only be 10 or less sales made through out the day. Where does that leave those who were not fortunate enough to make a sale? I must say I learned everything I know about selling cars from them. Their system works when implemented correctly. Management consisted of nice and funny people, but if sales weren't being made, no matter the reason; you felt the heat. The co-workers are very friendly people and do not get in your way and are very helpful if you ever need anything. The hardest part of the job was to get a customer. Friendly Ford has a hierarchy system (although they won't admit it), therefore the senior salesman always get the majority of the customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the customers to find their next perfect car or truck! Overall, Friendly Ford is a great company. The biggest problem is that they chew you up and spit you right out, throwing you to the wolves leaving you to start yet another job hunt as they are always looking for new talent and kicking out the employees who did not meet their ridiculous sales goals at the end of the month regardless of customer traffic.
