Normal work day is 8 hours if work is coming in. There was no growth at this dealership and poor management (Service Manager).Unfairly with disiplinary actions. Unless you were a skilled tech you were not giving the opportunity to grow.
Pros
Catered lunch every month
Cons
Politics, Unfair discipline, Unfulfilled promises, poor management.

Client Advisor (Former Employee) –  Crystal Lake, ILOctober 9, 2018
Volkswagen I believe the brand is in excellent condition. The trouble is at the club level. There is a big disconnect from the Corporate trainers to the Club managers. A lot of politics that are involved, no growth plan for team members, and even when you work your tail off there isn't acknowledgement of club level problems.
Pros
Free Saturday Lunch, great products
Cons
Lose any chance of having a personal life

Funding Auditor (Former Employee) –  Libertyville, ILSeptember 25, 2018
I loved working at Volkswagen. They always provided meals since there was so much overtime. However the hiring process could be updated. I feel as though you were judged more for your interactions with your coworkers than for your work ethics and performance, which I feel is way more important. Some people are introverts and like to come to work and do what they are supposed to do.

VW is a way of life
Technician (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXSeptember 12, 2018
Working on Volkswagens is a culture in itself. You have to forget most of what you know about diagnostic strategies compared to American and Japenese vehicles. so if you enjoy a challenge and are up to the task, this may be the place for you to call home. VW is many years ahead of other manufacturers when comparing technologies.
Pros
always challenging you and your abillity
Cons
work life balance

Used Car Salesman (Former Employee) –  Coconut Creek, FLSeptember 3, 2018
I made some very good friends at Gunther. Extremely long hours and not enough time off. You will work every Sat and Sunday! Commission is not enough on most cars and most leads are given to the senior sales pros.
