Great Experience
Fleet Lease Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Exeter, RIAugust 2, 2017
I had a great experience working here. There were ups and downs as with any job but overall my experience was very beneficial to my career. I will miss the coworkers that made it with me until the end. Ocean State Auto Auction closed in July of 2017.

High turnover rate
Employee (Current Employee) –  Exeter, RIJuly 23, 2017
Employees come and go . Never could build a solid team. Workloads not balanced at all. Some of us busy until the end of day, others not at all. Will be sad to see this business close at the end of July.

Horrible working atmosphere
BDC Clerk (Former Employee) –  BDC OfficeJanuary 5, 2017
I worked in the BDC office for a short while and was thoroughly disgusted with the way this place is ran. The General Manager has horrible people skills. Everyone was always miserable in their jobs. Had to call the same dealers over and over. Redundant and menial work on ancient computers that don't even have a mouse OR the internet! How is that for controlling. "Commission" pay based on auction attendance which is usually low due to years of poor management. Someone should really whip this place into shape, give it an upgrade and lose that awful man running the place.
Pros
Not much
Cons
Poor moral, bad management, rude clientele

Terrible place to work
BDC Representative (Former Employee) –  Exeter, RIJune 20, 2016
Walk in, make phone calls all day, get a half hour break, make more phone calls, get hung up on and yelled at. Some of the other staff were nice, the rest are seasoned and make it known and its unwelcoming. The general manager had actually made a derogatory comment against special needs.
Pros
Free lunch on thursday
Cons
Everything else
