Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  MichiganApril 23, 2018
Worst couple of years I ever spent. Ownership was horrible and oh the arrogance of the little man in charge. What a waste of time , they are in love with money and could care a less about you as the employee.
Pros
Employee parking
Cons
Management was a joke

Great place to work if you can tolerate the long hours. If you want a raise you just have to go out and work a little harder. Good management that gives you the tools you need to succeed.

Sales in the auto industry
Sales Manager/Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  Kalamazoo, MIApril 10, 2018
The culture and core beliefs of this company are phenomenal unfortunately because of the size and growth of this company it is difficult for the people that run it to monitor the actual management staff of the separate locations. The owner of the company has strong business and personal beliefs that are discussed and displayed all over all the campuses. The actual management team of each location still follow their own beliefs. The management team at the Kalamazoo location is stuck on old business practices and afraid to take the chances to grow to the next level. Some have acquired their position because of time and relationship with the company instead of it being talent based. There is also a need to be evaluate the pay plan for the sales staff based on the current pricing and buying practices of today's customers.
Pros
Great Culture, Learning and Growing opportunity, The "Best"
Cons
management, compensation, attitude

Don't bother
Office Clerk (Former Employee) –  Elkhart, INApril 9, 2018
- Worked here less than 3 months
- Quick to hire. A red flag and sign of desperation
- No training program
- Benefits are mediocre (holiday and vacation only). Boasted about "401k on Day 1" but failed to say they only give a discretionary match.
- Cliques and gossip
- Would not recommend
Pros
Hours, location
Cons
Cliques, gossip

Don't work here!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILApril 4, 2018
Grumpy volitile old sales manager in Maserati showroom. Sneaky older woman in Maserati cherry picks incoming leads and works them herself leaving the remaining sales team with little to no deals. No way to make any money working here. Lots of collusion going on. No team atmosphere. Boring job with no customers.
Pros
Free Saturday food
Cons
Terrible management and low income

If it could be rated a zero it would be
Manager (Former Employee) –  Kalamazoo, MISeptember 27, 2017
If you're thinking of this company look elsewhere. Don't do it to you or your family. The most arrogant owner and upper management staff you could find. They pride themselves on culture survey etc but the owner is horrible. They have many many internal issues, benefits are weak just do yourself a favor and find another company.
Pros
There really aren't any
Cons
Culture is horrible. Unappreciated. They are not employee friendly at all

Good Place
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Grandville, MIJune 12, 2017
The people truly make up an organization and I believe this place has great people. Can't say enough about the opportunities they give every employee to become the best they can be.

Downside of working in this industry would be the hours. Zeigler sales works more than any other dealership around, but in order to be the best, one has to put in the time an energy to do so.
Pros
Good benefits, culture, employees, management.
Cons
Long hours, work around holidays/holidays.

Title Clerk/ Cashier (Current Employee) –  Kalamazoo, MIDecember 30, 2016
I love how there is always something that can be done. The work is never done, so you don't need to scramble for the next assignment. I enjoy how fast paced our busy days are and how a majority of my co-workers are always willing to help if need to be. I also enjoy how each day I learn something new that allows each department to interact properly.

Not worth it
Associate (Former Employee) –  Gurnee, ILJune 22, 2016
Not a place to build a career.
Hard workers don't get noticed or appreciated.
One mistake is cause for termination.
I've seen too many people crying, and walking out of that place from getting fired unfairly.
If someone isn't getting fired, someone is quitting.
Constant change in staff (including general managers)
Pros
Its a job

Pro-growth strategy that focuses too little on back-of-house revenue
Inventory Specialist / Parts Buyer (Current Employee) –  Kalamazoo, MIFebruary 16, 2013
Typically the day entails servicing internal and external clients via telephone or face-to-face. I have learned to run daily operations with very little assistance. The management still believes that the "dealer" is the best value for consumers in the market which is an outdated belief. There are more professional technicians working at independent repair facilities and they posses skills that were honed at the dealership. Consumers realize now that they don't have to pay exorbitant labor rates to have their vehicle repaired by knowledgeable technicians! The team I work with has grown smaller over time and that has lead to poor morale. The hardest part of the job is to work with strategists that aren't open to ideas from their tactical team-members. The most enjoyable part of the job has been the personal growth I've gained by, essentially, being left alone most business days to navigate through the challenges.
Pros
new and modern facility
Cons
management that uses strategy from the 1980's
