I loved working from home! But the shift bids based on multiple points of our performance was not good, and the training seems so often yet repetitive (not in a good way).

Everyone there is so nice and love to help others. They are all there to help and build a great foundation. The atmosphere is amazing and so are the people.

poor management leaders. Use to be a great company to works for. Leadership has changed and they don't care about employees. Don't care about your ideas.

Re: MERCEDES-BENZ OF WALNUT CREEKHigh school politics, nepotism, management manipulates performance metrics to benefit the under qualified employees they like. There is no level playing field here. Great salespeople take a backseat to those who are less talented. DO NOT APPLY HERE. There is absolutely no work-life balance. You are bombarded with emails and calls when you are off work. Management states you have to work long hours if you wish to advance your career but then promotes those who work the least. If you value your physical and mental health, you should not work here. I have worked in sales for well over a decade and understand it is a stressful position but this place is exceptionally worse due to poor leadership and harmful management practices. I was publicly humiliated on a regular basis, both in emails addressed to everyone in the dealership and in person during meetings. It is the most unhealthy place to work.

Fast passed work environment. Can make as much money for as many cars as you can sell. Management is solid and will help you achieve your sales goals and all staff is supportive
