I've been given the opportunity to take on responsibilities and engage in a professional work environment. I learn something new every day and that's what makes coming to work so exciting! There are a wide range of career opportunities at AutoNation. Their positive work force along with their innovative outlook makes this company, a company worth working for! If you are looking to build a rewarding career, I highly recommend AutoNation as a potential employer.

    Pros

    I would recommend taking a job at AutoNation. I am amazed at the quality of the team - both coworkers and leadership. I also have the privilege of working on both sides of the corporation - at the store level and corporate level. It is such a pleasure to work with individuals that I continually learn from, and more importantly, look up to. Everyone is more than willing to help each other, step in for one another when needed, and share ideas. The support of the team I am in is beyond more than I have ever seen in a company. My management at AN is supportive, encouraging, and talented beyond words. They take the time to guide, teach, and grow each and every one of their employees. The company does a great job of training and developing. I am blessed and humble to be working for such a GREAT company. One that wants every employee not only to succeed but gives us the tools, knowledge and training to make that happen. I bleed AutoNation!!!

    Cons

    I have no Cons about working at AutoNation.

    Pros

    The list goes on and on of why I would recommend taking a job at AutoNation. I would say the most important would have to be the quality of the team - both coworkers and leadership. I had the pleasure of working with individuals that I learned from, and more importantly, looked up to. Everyone was more than willing to help each other, step in for one another when needed, and share ideas. The quality of the team I came into was greater than I had ever seen in a company. My management at AN was supportive, encouraging, and talented beyond words. They took the time to guide, teach, and grow each and every one of their employees. The company does a great job of training and developing. They truly take pride in their staff and know that they are the backbone of the company. AutoNation has a way of blending the perks of a large, Fortune 200 company (resources, training, career growth opportunities, benefits, accountability), and the feel of a family owned business (company culture, teamwork, care for their employees, meaningful coaching/talent reviews). I consider my time with this company the most beneficial in my career growth!!

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons - I had an overall, wonderful experience at AutoNation.

    Pros

    The staff here is friendly and welcoming. Through working at this dealership I have noticed that with hard work and dedication there are great opportunities for promotions and growing with the company. The managers are fair and knowledgable and willing to help train and guide newcombers in the right direction. When working here you will enjoy the perks of the newly renovated beautiful facilities and the nice location of the dealership. The area here is booming, therefore business keeps rising. Everyone here seems to love their job so everyone is always friendly and happy!

    Cons

    There is nothing really major to complain about this dealership other than the lack of employee parking space. I believe once all the construction is completed though there should be more space.
