Detailer (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – November 21, 2017
Hardest part of the job was you have to hit numbers so you can get paid well. I learned a lot from working there. The workplace culture is pretty much friendly but if you work up front a lot of eyes are on you and they love to get into your business.
Very competitive wages with a good work/life balance.
Final product inspector/Dealership administration (Current Employee) – South Saint Paul, MN – November 5, 2017
The right person for Walser brings experience, honesty and a willingness to learn the Walser way of working for a dealership. I work in a service center with multiple departments. As far as selling cars I wouldn't be qualified to review that aspect of the company. The main reason I love my job is the awesome people I work with along with the pay, benefits, and the shift is Monday-Friday. They match a certain amount of your 401k contributions (the amount depending on your title and tenure). Also, the longer you stay employed will increase the PTO you accrue per week. There are entry level jobs where you can make up to 18$ per hour.
Free lunches on Monday and they cater in once a month.
When it gets busy there is mandatory overtime which burns some employees out.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – July 26, 2017
Walser is the worst company to work for in Minnesota. They do not care about the employees, offer terrible benefits, poor management who only care that you are wearing the proper UGLY Walser shirt.
They do not care about customer service, they rip customers off, lie to make a sale. They pay the employees low wages, including sales people. Do not work there and do not take your car there for service.
Technician (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – June 6, 2017
We were bought out by walser, all given raises. Work died off, we were very slow. Then one day about 39 employees were all let go without warning. High turnover rate once walser came in, and now nobody enjoys working there. Pay plans changed in a heartbeat without any given notice
Just like any other sales job, you have a lot of demands to produce results if you want to stay aboard the ship. This can scare most people because it is pressure on your back to keep your job. However, this is a dealership and you should come in knowing that only those who sell can stay.

clean cars to company standards, learned how to detail cars correctly , management was cool , work is fine, i felt is was just boring , hardest part of the job is trying to work fast, to earn extra pay, most enjoyable was the freedom of work environment
Finance Center Team Lead (Promotion) (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – February 15, 2017
Walser Automotive Group is one of the greatest work environments I have ever been to. Co-workers and managers had a great sense of humor and professionalism; incredibly fun to be around but know when to get serious for efficiently getting things done.
Advancement opportunities, Benefits, Fun work environment.
Outbound Call Center Representative (Current Employee) – Edina, MN – February 9, 2017
I love my job and enjoy working for the company. I have learned skills of becoming a leader, management is always willing to help and be there for their fellow employees. Great benefits and incentives.
Challenging, fun, and always something new to learn
Corporate Used Car Buyer (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 27, 2017
