Digital Media Representative (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 18, 2018
This is a great place to start work right out of college, but plan to move on rather quickly. Poor poor management. Lots of favoritism. If you are into that and like to play the teachers-pet.. this is the place for you.
Digital Media Consultant (Current Employee) – Remote – August 2, 2018
great culture of innovation with rapid growth gives this company the feel of an upstart, which is exciting. but at 20 years old the organization needs more support and better communication between ops and sales.
Digital Account Executive (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 23, 2018
Good company- undergoing many changes. No opportunity for advancement- earning cap- company very bogged down in procedural protocol- which is hurting their business- while you have freedom- you can not make the money there that you should be making. Limited growth potential. Dated software.
earning cap- company bogged down by procedural gridlock
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 18, 2018
Cars.com was a great palce to work. However I actually worked for the Newspaper who was the Franchisee of cars,com and there was no opportunity for advancement. Very competitive and overall was a good place to work.
Sales Manager | The News Tribune (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – June 29, 2018
Great training. Highly motivated company. Continued to provide new products annually. Company provided quarterly bonuses. Training involved trainers traveling to properties. We were assigned affiliate managers who were in contact weekly and continued to provide support.
Digital Media Senior Representative (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 23, 2018
Cars.com is an amazing company! They truly care about their employees as well as their partners. They are the leaders in the automotive industry, delivering digital solutions with a return on investment. Cars.com is a top notch company that you can TRUST!
Corporate Finance Accounts Payable Coordinator (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 4, 2018
Cars.com is a great place to work and I really hate to move on but I need a little advancement and there is none in my department at the moment. Car.com is one of the best places you will ever want to work.
Inside Sales Regional Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 2, 2018
Good company with a fast paced environment. If you are willing to relocate you can grow your career fast with the company and have the opportunity to make good money. Growing at a face pace so you need to be able to deal with ambiguity. Those who are able to be creative and take initiative can be very successful.
Compliance Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 28, 2018
Cutbacks in the last few years have made this a far less enjoyable place to work. Employees are no longer valued and are easily replaceable. Job security is almost non-existent. The culture in the office, however, is relaxed and coworkers are nice. Lower-management seems to be supportive, helpful and overall really great, but sales and the almighty dollar rule the roost now for the organization as a whole.
Account Manager, Direct (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 18, 2018
Terrible management, Extremely High Turnover rate, Lack of diversity, Salary range much lower than market average and yet the workload is much greater. Not a company that you would like to grow with from a career standpoint. ZERO Transparency
Digital Media Senior Representative (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – January 17, 2018
The job entailed prepping and planning the day. Running reports for clients and showing the value of the products the client had. Applying listening skills to see what the client needs are without them having to ask. Working with great management on all levels to help maintain a great working relationship. It was a very interesting place to work. Hardest part of the job was having to deal with cancellations from clients. Most enjoyable part was seeing the clients be successful.
Making great relationships with clients and co-workers.
Digital Media Executive (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – January 12, 2018
This is a great company to work for sometimes a little slow changing mistakes but overall excellent company. I also worked for the affiliate in Phoenix and it is very different and not nearly as modern in sales on the digital side of things.
NATIONAL TRAINING DIRECTOR (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 10, 2018
Back in 1999 and 2000, cars.com was a growing "dot.com" business. It was exciting to see the quick growth that occurred during my time there. It was also exciting to see the plans for the future growth of the company. I'm very pleased to see they are still flourishing.
Technology Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 17, 2017
It was an internship that occurred during my time as an undergrad and it was great! Learning new technologies and getting exposed to the professional/company life. I had fun working and meeting different employees in the company..
Lead Co-op Operations Advertising Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 26, 2017
I like my job at Cars.com much better than any other jobs I've had in the past. It's not perfect, but it's not terrible. I've been with the company for 3 years and it's changed significantly in that time. Mostly for the better, but some culture changes have made it less enjoyable now than it used to be. Overall, still a great company and I would like stay another year or two if I wasn't moving to a different state.
