Lithia is a difficult place to work due to lack of training, long term understaffing, low wages for many of the positions, and very high turnover. You will be expected to work long hours and train yourself on many of your duties. Everyone that you need support from is too busy trying to get work finished and can't do a good job of training you due to – more... high work volume and not enough people to accomplish it. You will be expected to take on additional work when staff quits without consideration to the amount of work on your desk that needs to be accomplished too. It is a recipe to fail. Be sure you understand the full scope of duties of the position, the condition of the office and how many open positions still need to be filled before you accept. If you do not have dealership experience it will make success very difficult to attain in this hectic environment. The more you have in writing regarding employment promises the better.
Management needs to address the inconsistent and substandard training, low wages, and high employee turnover to help improve the working environment, employee retention, and their reputation in the community as an employer. – less
