Fleet Lease Coordinator (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – February 2, 2015
As cars were delivered to Adesa, they are split up between the reps by their case load. We would check our cases for new arrivals daily. Once they come in we needed to send them to service and have them inspected. If there are any cars that are damaged, we send them up for repairs so they can be ready for the auction which happens weekly.
Routinely inspected all points of entry ensuring maximum security, maintained log of visitors and created identification badges. Assisted in conducting fire drills noting any security, safety or fire hazards. Monitored for any irregularities during patrol and prepared incident reports. Provided escort services to guests and employees. Maintain Security Officer Certification and SORA License. Patrolled the facility and served as a general security presence and visible deterrent to crime and rule infractions. Patrolled industrial and commercial premises to prevent and detect signs of intrusion and ensure security of doors, windows and gates.
Good hours, Terrible Management, not a company if you have an opinion.
Site Manager (Former Employee) – Texas – September 14, 2016
The team were always talking about the clients behind their backs. Upper management runs like a sorority, the scold you for asking questions pertaining to the job. Outside sales reps were great to work with but ultimately were only out to save themselves. They have ridiculously high goals and for a multimillion dollar company; they can sure use a fine tune. Many people at the corporate office are rude and have a condescending adittude towards callers. Worst experience to date... avoid if you like having fun and not panicking everyday like your about to be fired. There are so many other companies doing floorplans nowadays pick another....
Good pay, hours
Have to work from home, use of own car, ridiculous goals, managment unapproachable.
Black managers and women managers are paid substantially less than their white male counter parts. Management is geared toward making the money - with no regard to do the right thing for the right people. Exempt employees are often treated like non exempt and expected to work 50 + hours weekly and are expected to only take minimal time off. Upper management takes extensive time off.
The company has a long ways to go in creating diversity and equality in the workplace.
Great Co Workers
HR staff is lacking in real world policies and practices
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – April 30, 2016
Don't ever work here. You will be bullied if you don't get along with the right enployees. You upset one manager you've upset all of them. Very highschool mentality. Backstabbing, drama, gossip galore! They will also expext you to do 4 people's jobs for the same money. Avoid at all costs. Retail is better.
I made a couple of friends, experience for the resume, that's about it.
Institutional AR Billing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – June 9, 2016
I worked for OPENLANE/CarsArrive. The environment, staff, managment was outstanding. It was a place where management really took the time to know about its staff. It was fun, yet a sense of accountability. I enjoyed the quarterly business updates provided by the executive stafff.
This place pay rate is pretty bad takes forever to advance in the company if Im not mistaken they show a little favortism in certain positions. I come to work everyday on time and work overtime if asked but the hours of not knowing when to get off hurts other plans outside of work.
you get to meet dealers and buyers at the auction.
N/A Right Now (Former Employee) – NJ – April 2, 2016
Anyway, I have spoken with the ORMGR. a few weeks ago and he stated he would have to check this certain area to be sure the position was not filled. He also stated that he would call me in about a week to do a power point to go over the system. So I had not heard from him so I called him and asked him about such so then he stated that he would again have to check this cetain other area because he had an phone offer out there to someone and then he would call me back eiether way.
As by reviewing the other reviews on this site I'm not affraid of work of any kind I have been in the Automobile Field over 32 years.
So I will leave this review at that and wait and see process, Then I will go from there.
They called me once and or twice or so.
When will they and if they will follow up is the true question.
Email Marketing Specialist - Email Developer (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 1, 2016
KAR/ADESA is a good place to work. The work was fun and the creative team is really good. It would have been nice to have had a "heads-up" that they would be letting us go. other than that, it was a good job.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Carmel, IN – August 2, 2016
The CEO is absolutely amazing! The culture is great! They actually have "FUN" as one of their mission statements. Upper management are all seasoned experts in this field and they can teach you a lot if you are lucky enough to get some of their time. The health care coverage is very reasonably priced, comparable to many other companies I've worked for. I didn't find it to be expensive when considering how expensive it is to NOT have insurance when tragedy strikes. Their corporate office is way over crowded and people are crammed in there like sardines. They think the "open-concept" is still a cool thing... I think the corporate world shot that down long ago. People HATE the open concept....it is a productivity killer unless it is solely a call center environment. I can literally hear the phone conversations of 7 people with cubes surrounding me. I can hear the girl next to me CHEWING HER FOOD! GROSS...gotta love that open concept, huh???
FUN @ Work, Outstanding CEO, lots of extra perks & benefits
low pay, no work life balance in my dept; manager refuses flexible schedules regardless of the reason
Car Detailer (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – April 15, 2016
It was a good working environment. I enjoyed working I would still work there if I had not moved state. It was not hard working there at all. My co-coworkers were great, very helpful. I enjoyed that I was able to work and have fun doing so.
Goal oriented, team player, and energetic enviornment.
inside sales representative (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 18, 2016
My day's at the auction consisted of always going the extra mile to keep our customers happy. Meeting new customers was almost a weelky thing that kept the work load big and days go faster.
I was always learning new things from my supervisors because they were team players and took the time to show me how to do something correctly instead of telling me. I also learned how to communicate effectively with individuals from both very large and small companies.
While me being the only Spanish speaker in the office was a constant struggle with so many cutomers it was also one of the position's I have liked the most because I enjoyed helping people make money.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Carmel, IN – April 1, 2016
There are some good people there but the management and culture of this place is the worst I have come across. Anyone that asks me about ADESA I warn. Only if you are really desperate should you consider a job here.
Quality Control Analyst (Current Employee) – Carmel, IN – December 31, 2015
It's exciting to be part of a company that is delivering winning solutions to customers and growing like crazy. People are encouraged to innovate and we steadily adopt new technologies that help us move faster and improve the experience of those using our solutions. The company is willing to invest in new technologies where it makes sense.The work is fast paced combined with a high level of attention to detail.
Management is trying hard to provide a high-performing team culture and seems to really care about being the employer of choice.
