    Pros

    I learned a lot work at nissan, great company to work for. The GM and GSM were great to work for.

    Cons

    Long hours, sometimes you spend hours with a customer and they don't get anything. Customers would either want to buy and not be able to buy or waste your time.

    Was expecting to come out with a job offer, or some idea of what to expect post-graduation, but was left hanging.

    Honestly, I really enjoyed all interactions with upper-management.

    It has gone terribly down hill... Quality and caring about employees are no longer the concern.

    Pros

    Leased vehicles. That's it at this point.

    Cons

    The best days as a place employees enjoy and are proud to work at are long gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's all about saving a dime at the expense of quality and the employees. Unqualified people are promoted through the "good ol boy network." I used to love working here about 10-15 years ago. Management cared about employees then and actual knew what they were doing. The new style of management here are arrogant and pompous and unqualified.
