Very accepting environment of everyone, no matter your knowledge on cars

They really do live by their values in everything they do.

Like ince a year we get food

The insrtructor and co workers are helpful clean bathrooms

Get to work from home

It's a supportive and collaborative environment! Our culture is award winning for a reason!

Treating fellow associates with respect.

we are often provided with free meals and snacks at work, management also makes small events to boost morale

Major focus on work/life balance. The company just seems full of passionate, kind, good humored, and extremely smart people.

it is inclusive and fair across the board

air condition and free food

Review from Operations Dept

They put people first and always do the right thing!

Happy to be able to afford and allow

They treat you like they really care about you .

Review from Operations Dept

What needs to change to make the company culture better?

More women in supercisory positions. If coworkers make complaints about each other they should be briught together face to face.

Just about everything you can think of. Most of all treating employees as individuals, and not numbers and bodies that can just be replaced whenever as needed. Some shoes can not be filled.

CEO, Regional Management, LGM, and Sales Managers.

Management needs to set expectations & stop allowing things to continue being done the way the way they are now. There need to be some new procedures implemented to stop costly mistakes from being made & Management needs to insure procedures are being followed.

Review from Sales Dept

Team members need to feel like they are all important and their work is valued.

A way to make the sales consultants feel more stable in their pay and free in their ability to sell cars as they wish (not including manipulation of the customer) would be helpful for company culture.

Review from Sales Dept

Awards to those who earn them. Enforcement of basic rules.

Review from Operations Dept

There is no synergy between the different departments. Purchasing, Business Office and especially Inventory. Car prep for delivery is beyond terrible and business office is slow as ever and do not recognize value of time.

Review from Sales Dept

All coworkers are responsible for the same task unless they are new. So understand that you have to do what your told
