The best automotive dealer to work for.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 12, 2019
Sewell is a wonderful company. "Support staff" positions allow you to have a work/life balance. Sales associates have no life, but they do have money. Do you want a life? Or do you want money? It's up to you. The pay is great, regardless of what position you're in, but it's the highest in Sales. Benefits are great.
Pros
Great people, discounts on cars, closed on Sundays
Cons
No work/life balance when you're in Sales

Great People
Loan Car Assistant (Current Employee) –  McKinney, TXFebruary 18, 2019
The people you work with are great and literally become your second family but the company overworks the employees until they are burnt out. Great people, just need a better work and personal life balance.

Assistant Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 8, 2018
Sewell offers professional development unlike anyone. They invest in their employees, and in return, expect a good deal of time and effort from all employees no matter what title they hold. If you enjoy a fast paced working environment, with professionals looking to better themselves each and everyday, look no further than Sewell.
Pros
Culture, development, pay & benefits
Cons

Disconnected
Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  Grapevine, TXJune 23, 2018
As the company grows, I find it to be more and more disconnected from the associates. There seems to be a greater focus put on the General Manager as some sort of demi-god and we're all just lucky to be there. Constant talks of "don't live beyond your means", followed up by pay cuts, have become commonplace. I feel like this once great company is perhaps losing its way.

Managers are absolutely terrible
Car Wash Attendant (Former Employee) –  Lexus Fort WorthMay 24, 2018
I worked here for 4 years and had goals set to move up within the company. I was hired by old managers but on my first day on the job they had replaced both managers and hired new ones. Those managers were absolutely horrible and treated the little people with disrespect. I was hired to be a service valet but the new managers decided that I wasn’t cut to do that position so they threw me down in the car wash. I washed cars for 4 years straight and never moved up or was treated with respect. The managers and GMs don’t care about the car wash people at all because you’re not making them the money. I wasted 4 years of my life working for a company that doesn’t care about the employees. You could wash 20 cars in a row and stop to drink some water and they would come down and threaten to write you up for not working.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Managers, hot days, long hours

Wonderful place to work and learn key sales traits!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXFebruary 8, 2018
At Sewell you have the ability to join a team, all on board with the same basic tenants of customer service. The pay is above average, and it is your choice to work more to earn more. They have made great changes to address work/life balance, and I would now say Sewell offers great opportunities for advancement. For me, Sewell is the only place to work in Texas. They have been around for more than 100 years, and that means everything. They have learned, and they have grown. Excellent company!
Pros
Learn from the best, continued education, freedom and great incentives!
Cons
Long hours for some, stressful for some, it gets hot in Texas!

It was great at the beginning...
Customer Relations Representative (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 27, 2018
To clarify, Sewell as a whole is not a terrible place to work. It's a great company full of great people. However, given the department I worked in (now called the Customer Experience Center), things were pretty bad to the point that there was almost no morale.
Pros
Hour lunch, after first year 15 days of PTO
Cons
No raises, no advancement/growth, Manager, PTO counted as sick time

Audi Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 13, 2017
Sewell is a very competitive company with a guiding hand at your back always pushing you to do your best. Managers are always there to help if work seems too stressful, as well as your fellow associates around you. Sewell is the Ritz Carlton when it comes to Automotive dealerships.
Pros
Demo vehicle with paid gas and insurance
