    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover full-time

    Pros

    Great people, exciting product, new facility, good pay

    Cons

    Poor top end management and equipment

    Advice to Management

    Invest in proper equipment, keep existing equipment updated and maintained so it works properly. Adjust staffing levels to allow good work load. Utilize your facility better, over stuffing your lot and not using service drive-through does not help to achieve the desired premium experience for the customers. This has the potential to be a great place to work, it just is not yet.

    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Driving Jaguar cars around, Free lunches on weekends, Car Discount, CO-Workers where fun to work with, Pay was decently good

    Cons

    Management or any other person besides lot attendent or detailers looked down at you like you were nothing, you were literally treated as everyone's assistant, horribly disorganized paper work and systems, key room was not secure, had no set system for paying for gas (literally used managers credit cards)

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect, our jobs may differ extremely but in no way does that mean you can look down on us.

    Pros

    Premium manufacturer of Range Rover, Land Rover, Jaguar vehicles.

    Cons

    Canadian management team dealers have no interest in the working conditions for sales people at the dealership level and do not provide any support. Product training is on line and originates from the U.S.
    Management is more interested in their corporate jobs and do no tho beyond that.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved with the sales people at the ground level in the dealerships.

    Cons

    When it comes to cons working at JLR, there are very few. You will be pushed to find another employer that can beat working here.

    There is one thing however that keeps bugging me from the day I started and that is our products are not more accessible for our employees to own. The car parks are full of competitor vehicles and this is a huge disappointment. There have been steps forward with trying to make deals more appealing to employees but these are still not good enough. To have such love for our products and to only see a sea of competitor vehicles in the car parks is upsetting.

    Competitors have great deals for their employees to own their vehicles as an incentive to promote their product. We should to.

    Advice to Management

    Make our vehicles more accessible to employees so we can enjoy the cars we put our hard work into. We only want this so much because we love our products!
