I like the culture of the overall company. However, my experiences in my department left something to be desired. If you work hard and care about doing your job well they will exploit you and take advantage.... those were my experiences anyway.
If your looking for a stable job this is not the place for you.
Lube tech (Former Employee) – Opelousas, LA – July 23, 2016
I have a degree in an automotive science. I put in an application in the hopes of working under one of the master techs in the bay. They made me a lube tech with the hourly pay of 9.50 which is horrible for someone that has a family. Seniority are the only people that seem to maintain their jobs there. As a lube tech you get treated with no respect. They work the life out of you and everytime equipment fails in the shop they blamed it on us. My manager was constantly riding us to get vehicles out of the bay. Me and my co-worker had to conpensate for other employee's that didnt want to work. I was eventually fired without warning and 0 write ups because I had 2 comebacks. I would not recommend this company for any new technicians looking to move up in the world.
A typical day consisted of analyzing data from Tier 1 suppliers, to look where we can save money at (Packaging, Logistics, Process and Quality. I learned a great deal, how to give presentations to VP's and other Senior management. I developed some excellent friendships and stay in touch with my Nissan family regularly. The hardest part of the job was leaving. The most enjoyable part of the job was traveling to Nissan's Tier 1 suppliers and conduct Kaizen events.

internet sales (Current Employee) – West Covina, CA – June 30, 2016
Selling car is easy. However, typical work hours for salesman is long. Average hours worked in a month is sometimes 238 hours and no weekends off. If you are single and do not mind working long hours, this is a perfect job and you have the potential to make lots of money.
Detailer/Lot Attendant (Former Employee) – Roseville, MI – June 29, 2016
I would work a 5 hour day, and had the chance to drive new vehicles of all makes, I learned Mutiple things from waxing, to paint removal, my co-workers was what made the job worthy, got along well with others and always had others laughing and enjoying their shift, management was okay, came 1 or 2 a week, hardest part of the job for me was the hours, hours were low and not flexible.
Driving new vehicles, having conversations with former work friends
Work around great people and put new parts in vehicles.It is fairly easy but can have its rough times as well. It is a fast past environment and takes time to get used to. I would say that it is a great job to have and would recommend it to anyone.
