Soul sucking

If you are not part of the clan you are worth nothing to them. They want drones, not employees.

Do not recommend as an employer
Office staff (Former Employee), Billings, MTOctober 29, 2014
Pros: the best part of working at lithia would be your co-workers, and they do offer a lot of employee benefits.
Cons: lack of training, low wages, long hours, no work life balance, 5 days vacation after one year and no sick days, always under staffed, expected better health insurance and employee cost
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

Establish a market for the Mini brand in Anchorage, Alaska.
General Sales Manager (Current Employee), Anchorage, AKOctober 22, 2014
Pros: work for a large company.
Cons: no real appreciation for you. felt like another body performing a job.
This job was very demanding due to the fact that the Anchorage, Alaska market has not had the Mini brand around for a significant period of time. It was a "grass roots" opportunity. The market share has the demand for a vehicle that is priced up to $50,000 and is conservative with fuel. The Mini brand offers an "ALL4" (Mini's version of the all wheel – more... drive) system that actually rivals the Subaru's all wheel drive system.

The biggest challenge from my perspective was the sales consultants in Alaska. It was an amazing challenge, unlike any other market that I have been in. – less

Profesional and very helpful
Sales (Former Employee), Fresno, CAAugust 21, 2014
Most days were pretty routine, helping customers and organizing parts. But it taught me a lot about customer service and time management. It made it a lot easier because my coworkers were very kind and helpful. The hardest part of the job was during the summer when it got hot. It was difficult to sit in the attic and go through and organize parts. The – more... best part about it was my coworkers being so helpful and easy to get along with. – less

I LOVE LITHIA
Personnel Coordinator (Former Employee), Pocatello, IDJuly 9, 2014
Pros: advancement, benefits, opportunities, culture
Cons: compensation
From day one, my experience at Lithia was more than I'd ever expected. The environment and company culture was a perfect match for me and for my family. I learned several job skills that still benefit me and my current organization (military).

My coworkers have remained friends to this day.

The hardest part of my job was the day I had to leave. The – more... company's stocks took a fall during 2008 and my department was being drastically reduced company-wide.

I enjoyed working at Lithia. I can't say that it was perfect, but I have nothing but fond memories of working there and with that group of people. My relationships spanned nearly the entire Western US. – less

Productive and great workplace
Cashier/Receptionist (Former Employee), San Angelo, TXDecember 2, 2013
Pros: employee discounts
Cons: little family time, short lunch breaks
A typical day for Lithia Motors Is ALWAYS on the go. Starting from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. there is non stop customer service interaction. I can honestly say I've leaned from this job to be MORE of a multi tasker and independent. Management team and co-workers are great at Lithia Motors. They are very hard working and self motivated. Hardest part about working – more... at Lithia are the long hours. It can be hard to be away from your family. Though you work for those long period of hours, the rewards are great, both career wise and financially. – less

Long hours but Great Training
Sales Representative Lithia Motors (Former Employee), Helena, MTOctober 24, 2013
Pros: your income is only limited by your ability
Cons: long days
As a new car salesperson you often have to put in 14 hour days. This is a good job if you are enthusiastic, charismatic, and have a good working knowledge about cars and trucks.

Not a very great place to work
Lot Attendant (Former Employee), Ames, IAJune 26, 2013
The job was not difficult. Clean cars and make sure the lot looked presentable. The reason it became difficult was inefficient management constantly pushing cars out the same day as the sale and demanding too many things to be done by at most three people while having to prep sold vehicles. The weekends were the worst as they were that heaviest sales – more... days and as a lot attendant who has lot of duties else where on the lot would be reprimanded for not getting things done when there are five cars backed up to be prepared for delivery. Maybe it has changed since I have been there but it was not an enjoyable work environment and the turn over I experienced in the five and a half months I was there reflects that. – less

Sexist employer with a "boys club" mentality. The GM is rude and they run the sales department with a fear mentality.
