Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXNovember 26, 2016
Sewell is an excellent place to work to gain corporate training, sales and service experience, or build a long-term career. The pay is extremely competitive, the management is transparent and trains you well, and the fast-pace environment of sales and service is challenging, but fun.

Working on Saturdays is by far the hardest part of the job, but the company takes good care of you and you will feel appreciated when you have performed your job well.

I would definitely go back to work there under the right circumstances. Having a family with small children and two working partners/spouses is very difficult at Sewell, but doable if you are willing to spend money on after-hours child care and be away from you family in the evenings and on weekends. You will be well-compensated for the sacrifice.
Pros
pay, training, management
Cons

Parts Inventory Specialist and Parts Counter Sales (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 20, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make customers happy. This includes both customers, and technicians, keeping everyone happy is the main part of the job and its very important to any parts counterman working here. The parts department is the support of the dealership, and everyone is proud to serve the associates and the customers, because satisfaction matters the most!!
Pros
Great environment, great people, more than enough benefits and employee events

Dishonest managers, makes dishonest salespeople
Parts (Former Employee) –  Infiniti Fort WorthFebruary 14, 2016
Their are many people at this dealership that i will miss, no one in management is on that list. I worked at a few of their stores, and the same negative things came up at both about the management team, especially the GM, he is unprofessional and rude. The make you feel like your not important to them until they need you to do something they don't want to do. The last reviewer was correct, they will be very nice to you for the first couple of weeks, then they will call you or text you and ask where you are at because they are too last to come down and see that you are doing your job at your desk. There are so many other great dealerships with way better classes of people to work with. Skip this one and move on so your don't end up wasting your time.
Pros
free food = no lunch break, yeah they buy your lunch and expect you to work through lunch while they sit in there offices eating
Cons
management doesn't care about the people, just the numbers

Great People, Great Pay, Work 6 Days a Week
Finance and Insurance Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 18, 2016
Pros: free car, gas, and insurance. Good pay, lots of free meals, fun environmentCons: not the best healthcare plan, work weekends and most holidays, not a ton of upward mobility
Sewell is great. They treat you well, they pay you well, they give you a free car, free gas and free insurance. You are given the training tools you need to succeed and if you are a go-getter it is hard to fail in this environment. The downside is that you work nights, weekends, and holidays. Taking you day-off during the week is frowned upon. For a young single person it's awesome making over $100k but when it's time to start a family you realize that time is worth more than money.
Pros
free car, gas, and insurance. Good pay, lots of free meals, fun environment
Cons
not the best healthcare plan, work weekends and most holidays, not a ton of upward mobility

Worst place I ever worked for
Car wash specialist (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth SewellOctober 15, 2015
If you are a car wash specialist for sewell beware of the service manager or the GM. They will be nice to you at first, then bs begins. They will both treat you like dirt because your not making them any money. If your not a salesmen or a service advisory don't even work there. Ill go around looking for work after all my stuff was done, then Ill get yelled at for NOT DOING ANYTHING which is not true. They were all playing with RC cars while Im getting yelled at for walking around.

WORST PLACE I EVER WORKED FOR NEVER WILL I EVER RECOMMEND FOR WORK OR SALES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros
None
Cons
Terrible working environment and everything

Sales Associate (Inside Sales) (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 1, 2015
Sewell spares no expense in keeping their employees polished. You can make great money here if you make yourself available...and by available I mean all day everyday. Say goodbye to College Gameday. Oh, and don't even plan to attend your children's activities. All things said, you should be able to provide for your family quite nicely.
Pros
Free Demo Car, Guaranteed Salary when hired
Cons

Sales (Current Employee) –  HoustonApril 16, 2014
Hey you might be young and not know any better so go it.
However, you will work 60-80 hour weeks, Saturdays, Holidays, and by the way get ready to wear a name tag and a long sleeve and tie (yea in the Houston heat, walking on black top car lots, opening cars that have been baking) for a guy who is making millions in Dallas Texas.

Conniving, greedy and manipulative
administrative assistant (Former Employee) –  fort worthNovember 19, 2013
Cons -
Watched them repeatedly find replacements for employees behind their back and then lay them off without warning - including myself.
Out of the 8 managers I worked with directly on a day to day basis only one took interest in my attempts at moving up within the company.
Not the greatest benefits.
I learned a lot and it was a good experience however I would warn anyone - if you're not a conniving and greedy person this isn't the workplace for you.
Pros -
Driving an infiniti
Having the Sewell name on your resume
Good referrals even after being laid off

Assistant Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 25, 2013
Pay is great. Some bully mangers. Atmosphere at Lexus Dallas service department is post college cliques.
Nice place to get experience then find a career. Like a co-worker said it is a good paying job, not a career.
Pros
Pay and training
Cons
job not a career

Warehousing and Sales Intern (Former Employee) –  Katy, TXOctober 23, 2013
This job dealt with a mix of warehousing as well as sales. This was an excellent job that helped developed social skills, negotiation skills, and customer service skills. It provided hands on interaction with customers dealing with automotive sales. It was very competitive and fast paced with every day bringing something different.
