Human Resources Analyst (Current Employee) –  Bloomfield Hills, MIFebruary 14, 2018
Management is supportive of employees and their new ideas to implement in the business; they also work alongside employees instead of flexing their superiority. There is definite career growth at Penske Automotive Group and as an employee, you receive your return on investment.

Large Professional Company
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZFebruary 9, 2018
Advancement opportunities for those who speak up, fast paced, and modern/clean facilities to work in. Being a luxury complex removes the cliche' "Car sales" feeling that you get with other dealerships

Poor management and training
Salesperson (Former Employee) –  Mentor, OHFebruary 5, 2018
Excessively poor management. Worked here for less than 3 total months due solely to the general manager and one assistant manager. Training was extremely lackadaisical. Was told when interviewing that my training would be very hands on, but ended up being sat in front of a computer and told to “learn this”. There were a few hands on training sessions with management towards the end of my tenure, but it was too little, too late. The salespersons were typically very nice and willing to help, but it is a commission position, so it was beyond cut throat when it came down to actual sales.

Pass on Penske
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Chandler, AZJanuary 2, 2018
Penske will pay you the least out of all dealership companies. Their hiring process takes over 3 weeks, and their dealerships are extremely slow! Other dealerships offer a better salary. They will try to start you at the bottom, even when you have multiple degrees.
Pros
Free lunch on Saturdays
Cons
Minimum wage and hardly any business

based on my experience
Sales and Service Representative (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 26, 2017
On a typical day, I would be calling customers from the proprietary data of the company, encouraging new sales growth. Develop and extend rapport with existing clients in data base. Prepared to assist in loaner cars, customer management and coordinate problem resolution with service staff and service managers. Including greeting customers from the time customer entered the dealership and enhancing the customer experience beyond expectations.
Pros
fast paced work enviroment
Cons
lack of support from management

Cut Throat Dealership
Biller/Title Clerk (Former Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZNovember 30, 2017
The Penske Group is there to make money and cut corners. If management isn't on your side then they are against you. The Billers do more accounting roles then bill. non of the dealership do their paperwork the same. Very unorganized when a biller is responsible for 2 more more dealerships.
Pros
free soda and coffee
Cons
unorganized and very click

Accounting Office Assistant (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 18, 2017
This company will tell you what you want to hear when you are in the interview.

Multiple stores little pay, drown you in work
