Lot Attendant (Former Employee) – East Glenville, NY – May 18, 2018
Was personally hired by the owner to work there. Him and the GM at first made me feel wanted and important then I was canned after one month with no explanation. Probably hired me so they could get caught up on their work because their too lazy to do it themselves.
Finance Manager /Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Scotia, NY 12302 – November 1, 2017
Mohawk honda is boot camp for car salesperson. If you are struggling for direction they will shape you into an allstar. The whole place is completely mico managed. They "cannot guarantee you employment but can guarantee you employability". Compensation is garbage unless your selling 30+ or a rockstar at holding gross. very hard to get decent bonus money. Long hours bell to bell. SPOT @7:50 ridiculous!

Mohawk Honda was by far the WORST employer for which I have ever had the displeasure of working. Management is a joke. Customers (and coworkers) are not prevented from treating employees like complete garbage. There is ZERO accountability here, especially for Salespeople and Service Advisors. There are no consequences for those in management that either cause, or fail to mediate, issues between coworkers.

If you aren't related to the GM or his wife then it's going to suck. His minions get the highest pay for doing the least work & sail through doing absolutely nothing. The hardworking employees were all terminated for ridiculous reasons & the place is a comedy show now
express technician (Current Employee) – Scotia, NY – November 5, 2015
I am an express technician for mohawk honda. Recently they got rid of 2 of the managers and the new management is worse than the original managers. Don't care at all for the employees just themselves. If you are in their little click you are good to go. Otherwise you are treated like you are worthless and stupid. The only plus is working with a great bunch of people in service.
Assistant to the Controller (Former Employee) – Scotia New York – May 19, 2015
Mohawk Honda provided me with an extensive amount of accounting and automotive knowledge. On top of that I also learned a lot about the retail side of the business from working extensively with sales and financing personnel.
My main responsibility was in the accounting and internal control side for the retail and wholesale of new and used automobiles.
the Co- Workers at Mohawk come from various backgrounds and overall were very good to work with. The mutual love for the automotive industry that most everyone at Mohawk shared I believe was a part of the reason the people were so easy to work with.
The hardest part of my job was also the most enjoyable. As an important member of the accounting team I was responsible for making sure that the sales numbers accurately reflected the money that changed hands multiple times. This was an important job that I took very seriously and although it could be difficult it was also very rewarding. The main reason it was so rewarding was that I cared about the company and believed in the product we were selling. As a result I always felt motivated to to the best i could for the great people and great products.
Independence, Employers trusted in me.
As a rapidly growing company it did have some growing pains
Co-workers somewhat make up for the lack of management
Receptionist/Sales Secretary (Former Employee) – scotia, NY – January 21, 2015
While working there, there was no direction for my position and managers treated me as if I did not know a thing about working a dealership. I have worked at dealerships for over 1.5 years and all of my friends are mechanics. Management kisses each others behinds and HR is pretty much non-existent. The only way to succeed here is sell a lot of cars, or if you're not in sales, to know the owners and be friendly with them.
