Entry level auto dealership experience possibility
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Pleasant Hills, PA – December 15, 2018
My position was part-time as a cashier in one of the branded service departments. I worked evenings and Saturdays and averaged about 23-28 hours a week. The job itself was not difficult, but standing your ground as a female in an environment that can be branded as a "good ol' boys club" proved to be more of a challenge than anything. There isn't room for growth, unfortunately as most of the full time positions worth having are held by people that are tenured. I suppose that says something about the dealership, that people do tend to stay. If you're interested in getting your feet wet at a dealership, it's an option, but development and training you won't see much of. Overall not a negative experience, just no growth for me personally and I couldn't live off of a part time $9 an hour job.
Free lunch on Saturdays.
No growth within the company or ongoing development
former tech (Former Employee) – Pleasant Hills, PA – March 17, 2019
when I started, nobody introduced themselves or showed me hardly anything. the pay isn't too bad to start, but no overtime is allowed, even tho sometimes youre expected to stay later. if a tech messes something up, the first time the company pays, the second time they pay half and you pay half, the third time the cost comes out of your check up to $2500. they wont tell you that part. even if the situation isn't your fault, it doesn't matter because youre the last one to work on the car.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Pleasant Hills, PA – October 31, 2018
While I have only been here for about a year, I love it here. The management team is friendly and helpful, the hours are fantastic, the Bowser family is approachable and involved. I have a fantastic boss that is willing to work with me on things or time-off. I highly recommend working here. Get your foot in the door and work your way up if you have to.
Friendly environment, involved management, opportunities to advance
Poor management, high turn around rate of employees
Technician (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – February 21, 2018
Not willing to pay the good workers and continue to hire poor quality people. When asking about guaranteed hours for flat rate guys was told the CEO said “Let them leave, we’ll replace them with cheap labor”
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – February 16, 2018
Your human resource manager has poor judgement and feels she is never wrong on her decisions. Mrs snyder You need to look for a college grade that is young and dumb that you can train to do things your way. And not hers.
Automotie Technician (Diesel) (Current Employee) – Pleasant Hills, PA – October 11, 2017
I learned a lot there. They are big on training. However thy only pay slightly higher than minimum wage to train. It was recently reduced. They also took a few holiday days off of us and capped the three we gat paid for at $80.00 each.
Automotive salesman based in the Buick showroom (Former Employee) – Pleasant Hills, PA – June 24, 2013
A typical day was 9-9 during the week, with not a lot of floor traffic. Mostly contacted previous customers via phone or email. Did a lot of referral business and previous customers.( Approx. 65-70 %). New management was a little difficult to work with and that was probably the hardest part of the job. health insurance was very costly through them though. Approx 950/month from me to cover my family. Seems high to me.
