I worked at AutoNation full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Progressive, economies of scale, training resources for almost all positions within store.

Cons

Human Resources horrible (at least in Texas). Market management more interested in coasting then developing. Direct lies to store executive management as well as misrepresentation to Regional and Corporate management on stores’ personnel. Keep your head on a swivel if you join this group.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company install tools/software/reports in each store to assist various levels of store management to make decisions based on facts rather then emotions (short of the Maroone speech of "...each store (GM) should posses entrepreneurial spirit to lead...). The market, region and corporate office themselves should review those same tools prior to making decisions on store movement and or removal.

    I worked at AutoNation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most people I work around are good people

    Cons

    Your commission salary is based on customer surveys. The survey itself is confusing. You get marked off for things you can't control. They are more concerned with the survey then if you're a good employee when people who fill the surveys out don't care about your job. Sometimes they are in a bad mood or have a spouse fill it out. But, people are fired for low surveys even after bending over backwards for the customer. Even if you make CSI and sell alot, salary is still low. No room for growth. Long hours. High turn around. They give everyone an assistant manager title so they don't have to pay overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the survey and make it simple. Stop punishing SA's for things they can't control (like what's in the breakroom or what the shuttle person does). The commission salary is not competitive with the area and cost of living.
