The worst company I ever work for...
Sales (Former Employee) –  Littleton, COJanuary 23, 2018
This company doesn't care about their employee, owner and management are really bad they're about money and greed. They don't pay for what you made for them, check is always short and promises but never seen the check. Don't work for this company or you will be sorry and time wasted. Plus this company will not last that long the way they run this business and doesn't care for employees.
Cons
bad management and owner

Poor Management
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Littleton, CODecember 30, 2017
Dealerships in general are very harsh work environments, but this one in particular was downright awful. Management here does not care about employees, everyone is expendable. Do not work here. Also, you don't get PTO days until after a full year, so don't get sick for a year, essentially.
Cons
poor PTO, bad management, harsh environment

Not a good place for technicians
Technician (Former Employee) –  Littleton, COAugust 9, 2017
This company does not value technicians. Work environment is hostile and the managers do not care. They promise great income potential, but they fall miles short as most of their work is nothing but warranty and recalls. Free work is a norm there, and if you don't work 6 days a week, you get scrutinized or starved.
Pros
none
Cons
Low income, hostile work environment

Terrible place to work
Service advisor (Former Employee) –  Mazda,VolvoSeptember 23, 2016
Management is terrible. Turn over is excessive because they don't care about employees. Owner is all about the money and is greedy and unjust. Constant management changes due to quitting or being fired. Work anywhere but here or you will be sorry. Very unethical to customers and employees. No lunch breaks.
Pros
Some good associates to work with.
Cons
Everything about this auto group. Owner.

Was good at first...
tech (Former Employee) –  Littleton, CODecember 22, 2015
It was good for the first few months, until I noticed that I was getting blackflagged on everything, I was hourly so that raises a few red flags. I also wasn't allowed any days off and lunch breaks which were a few more flags there. I have also noticed some shortcuts the service manager was taking, as well as making us do more work for less pay. Eventually left and have been searching since.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
No breaks, no lunch, no days off, backflagged on every ticket so barely any money was made

Some great people to work with, some old school leadership
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Littleton, CODecember 11, 2015
met a wide variety of individuals, attitudes and drive. Most individuals where motivated and eager to assist. Managers some times did not take the time to give the proper praise and direction. typical work day was 12 hours even if it were slow,working the last day of the month bell-bell is unneccessary.
