Salesperson (Former Employee) – Midland, TX – October 27, 2013
A typical day of work for lithia motors. Get to work at 8:00 am go to a morning meeting at 8:30 stay there until 9:00 sometimes later. After that get on phones and try and set appointments for the day. Must have at least two appointments each day. After that we go to outside and try and catch "ups" . If we do catch one then we "sell" and meet our appointments at their given times. I learned how to sell from them. (the right way) the whole twelve step process created by Grant Cardone himself. My co workers were all great people. No one split a deal unless we had to, just because they all knew that we would do the same for them. The hardest part of the job would be getting there at 8:00 in the morning and staying at work until 8:30 at night. Having a one hour lunch that in working 11 and a half hours a week for 6 days a week. Sunday is the only day off. The most enjoyable par of the job was most definitely the compensation. If you new how to sell, you would make at least $4000 a month.If you were good, 100k a year would be no problem. But if you have a life or a family. You have to decide if that is worth giving up for the money.
Great at having fun but horrible at Leading change and managing responsibilities...
WEB/GRAPHIC DESIGNER (Former Employee) – Medford, OR – August 10, 2017
I love the people there but the company seems to be double minded on what it wants. A lot of goals but no action to follow that through. They put the best social activities and Halloween is always fun! Needs to work on clear communication and follow-through.
Business Development Administrator (Former Employee) – San Angelo, TX – August 9, 2017
Loved a lot of people I worked with, but management was terrible. Pay was really great, but overall was not worth the work. A lot of people did not take their jobs seriously and it made work 10 times harder for the people that did.
Lube Technician/Mechanic (Current Employee) – San Angelo, TX – July 31, 2017
this place is alright if you are barley getting into the automotive industry it has great working environment great people to work with but the pay is a little disappointing. ive learned a lot about responsibility and getting work done over the seven months ive been working there but the hardest part of the job is trying to not stress when it gets busy but overall like i said its a learning expirience
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Santa Rosa, CA – July 28, 2017
The manager that is supposed to run the ship doesnt. The manager that does, runs it like a frathouse/drill sargent style. lots of yelling, cursing, and threatening. Employees are stealing sales, except the Web salesmen.
a lot of stealing sales from one employee to another
Sales and Leasing Consultant (Former Employee) – Hawaii – July 25, 2017
Management corrupted, not all created equal playing favorites is shown on the daily. Management does not listen to sales staff and belittles almost all. Vida....never had a worse manager in my life. Company has great benefits and pay plan the dealership management is not worth it.
Free lunch saturdays
Management, general manager, no growth opportunities, training
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Oxnard, CA – July 18, 2017
Lexus in Oxnard, horrible place to work for. Mechanics are not very knowledgable and just make half educated guesses. Manager does not know how to run the service department and cares more about getting positive customer reviews. Will write up an employee, threaten to fire for the smallest infraction and still claim he is a nice guy to work for. Office politics.
General Sales Manager (Former Employee) – San Angelo, TX – June 29, 2017
if Lithia had a store here in Az. I would still be working for them. Was able to learn much more than just the car business Company offered ongoing training to enable you to become a better manager as well. Benefits were great including stock purchase plan insurance and 401 k. Lithia really does believe that you the employee makes the difference.
great earning potential
auto sales usually involves lots of hours to be ultra succesful
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – June 2, 2017
Constantly switching management. Office politics are over the top. If you can work non stop bells and handle the bs you can make a living. No advancement opportunities unless you were brought in by the ever changing management. Would never even consider a Lithia store again.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Midland, TX – June 2, 2017
This place is a Joke!! Parts supervisor was very discriminating, picked favorites and worst of all if your not having personal relations with the Parts manager you get pushed aside!! Very Disappointing!!!!
Lot Attendant (Former Employee) – Ames, IA – June 2, 2017
The job was pretty good, we would put gas in cars new or old and get them ready for customers when they were being sold weather thats 1 vehicles or 10 being sold at the same time which meant we would have to work on one right after another if necessary. We didn't necessarily have any breaks but most of the time it wasn't to fast paced unless maybe it was a Satuarday.
Warranty Administrator (Former Employee) – Wilsonville, OR – May 23, 2017
The people I worked with were exceptional. If there were any questions I had they were more than willing to provide the answers. I learned so much working there.
The management wanted to always make sure that we were comfortable with the systems we were using. If any issues arose they addressed them immediately and diminished any ill favored rumors. Not one of them treated you with anything but feelings of equivalency. Your ideas were always given a review before a decision of yay or nay.
The hardest part of the job was that warranty work was new to me. So it was navigating a whole new world. However, it was worth the adventure. I enjoy challenges such as this. Using my brain is my favorite thing to do.
The company in whole
That I was unable to work form them when I moved back to AZ
Worker (Former Employee) – Roseburg, OR – April 28, 2017
In Roseburg, the management isn't all its cracked up to be and there is no opportunity for advancement unless you're related to someone in a management position. Getting proper compensation for doing endless mundane tasks is almost impossible, and even after months of putting in solid effort, time, and energy, I was given my first raise in 2 years, only to be at the same rate per hour that the new hires were being hired on at. Aftwr several months of being paid a dollar less per hour, despite my seniority.
Moved across the country on a hope and dream and it was an absolute nightmare. Upper management only cares about their paycheck. They will use you to clean up a mess created by a "partner" and then dismiss you to protect themselves. Their "career advancement" is a joke UNLESS you are one who is a brown nose pushover or you are part of the good old boys club with them.
