After 20 years with BMW , our store purchased by Autonation 7 years ago, found that General Manager turnover created a constant state of change, lies and deception! Every year we would acknowledge and sign a PAY Plan, I left when $7500 was stolen from me as the pay plan changed after receiving a $48,000 gross from a previous loyal client for the first I8 to be delivered at our store. Signed pay plan was 20% of the gross , ($30k) over list!
Our General Manager after meeting with Autonation Management told me that the highest commission on any vehicle would be $2500....!!!! That’s what I was PAID. The balance of the gross to the GM’s store
bottom line. I left BMW because I could not afford to fight Autonation in court and received no help from Human Resources!
My justice was to make it my mission after leaving to let everyone of the clients over many years (1278) still alive, know about the Autonation culture I experienced and sell as many vehicles as possible away from Autonation (32) last year in Retirement!
All I Can say is it’s cost many times more than $7500 stolen from me, in negative reputation, future business and employee turnover. The GM that facilitated ALL of this
STILL works for Autonation! You just Move em around! Careful if you are looking to work for Autonation! They are thieves!
I am sure this will not be posted so I will send a copy to CEO Autonation Mr. Jackson if he is still running the company.
