Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  Springfield, VAAugust 8, 2018
Enjoyed the people I directly worked w/ but was taken advantage of in a manner that no person should ever have to deal with in a work environment. I hope it never happens again.

Not good for the inexperienced
Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Stafford, VAJune 28, 2018
The service department is so chaotic that no one has any time to train new hires. You are supposed to receive a minimum of a month of salaried training, but you’re lucky to get a week. They sit you in front of a computer, right in front of customers, and tell you to watch a few training videos. This process is interrupted constantly by angry customers. Then they throw you to the wolves. The lane manager is awesome at her job, but rarely has time to help you. You get paid NOTHING on all services that are part of their “rewards” program. The customers wait several hours for basic services like oil changes and state inspections. By that time, they’re mad at you, simply because you’re the only contact they have at the dealership. That, in turn, means your surveys are going to be awful. That means your commission percentage is then lower because of your CSI numbers. I’d only recommend this job to someone with lots of experience that already knows all of the systems. Then again, the ones with experience aren’t going to stay at a place where they don’t make decent money and always have mad customers.
Pros
Free lunch on Saturday
Cons
Low pay, angry customers, long hours, hot service lane, expensive benefits

Service Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Annapolis, MDJune 21, 2018
NO review! I choose not to review this company. Its up to the community and its people to decide what they want to see or feel of any company. Not for a past employee to state how they feel.

Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Springfield, VAMay 24, 2018
It was a good place to work. You can get promoted from within. Lots of free food. There was a lot of turnover which made it hard. Spent too much time training instead of working.
Pros
Free lunches

Took a while to make decent money

Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Springfield, VAMarch 1, 2018
As a receptionist, the job is not hard. It's great opportunity to learn about the automotive industry and improve administrative skills. Promotional opportunities are available, if you express interest with management.

Don’t care about their employees
Manager (Former Employee) –  Mechanicsville, VAJanuary 25, 2018
Expect you to sacrifice your personal life for their company goals and will not acknowledge that you did or even compensate you. Senior management operates purely on lack of employees interest.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours and low pay

This company is okay, but not at all good to work for. This company hinders employees and has a bad thing for favorites.

No good at all.

Never work there
Service (Former Employee) –  Mechanicsville, VAJuly 25, 2017
Local dealership does not have a clue on how to run a business nor how to manage/treat employees. The worse work/career experience I have ever had. There is zero communication among members of management.
