    I have been working at Lia Auto full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot about the car business and was able to delve into the "office" portion of the car sales business that I know will be valuable when looking for another job at other dealerships. Office manager was very nice and easy going, got along with her splendidly.

    Cons

    Upper management was a bit uptight and "entitled". Was not always comfortable going to them for help and or questions. Intimidation is not the best way to deal with employees, in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize all employees, no matter what level they're at, are human beings and deserve respect.

    Pros

    Good place to ruin your family life.

    Cons

    Salary plus bonus but bonus is not based on sales like the rate sheet says that you sign it is based on gross profits on those sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be a bit more employee sensitive. Honesty would go a long way. Much further than sarcasm.
