Company reviews
"Just okay"
Former EmployeeSales
It is just ok, very structured (no critical thinking allowed). It is a good part time job, but not a place to make a career. 1 or 2 decent managers, but the rest are incompetent.

"It's just, OK"
Current EmployeeSales Consultant
You don't really serve a purpose here, just do the same routine daily that any person with little bit of training can do. It's decent to pay bills and live. It's Diverse, same outline that every "top great place to work" follows. I wish they'd utilize leads and managers in escalation lines to help when you get stuck or de-escalate situations. Instead they micromanage which is most useless. Also, wish they'd focused on getting more one-on-one time with a manager after training instead of three months after, because you've already form habits. Than they tell you it's wrong and try to fix it from scratch again. Just smile and wave when this happens. It's true, you will have anxiety from hearing your phone ring. Calls are not back to back- which is great. Boring job. The vacation is blah, and not flexible with work life balance. Seems like nobody really knows what is happening, you just go through the process. If I hear "iconic experience" one more time. You can have a good call and have the customer satisfy, but they lowkey want you to follow a template of a call flow, and if you don't to them the call was not perfect. The End.

"Great place to work, BUT..."
Former EmployeeOffice Assistant
Crazy schedules, free lunches, great coworkers. Never dreaded going to work. Unfair pay for the business office, though. They do a lot of work and help run the place. Other departments would be sitting around socializing and playing on their phone while the business office associates would be working non-stop. They work hard and deserve to be paid as such!

"Great if you like corporate, horrible micro management"
Former EmployeeCXC
I can totally see this being a great fit for someone who likes corporate / desk jobs. They have great benefits, plenty of space to work in-person (with great amenities at said office), and they really have an amazingly diverse team. That said, the micro management - particularly when working from home - is a NIGHTMARE. They say your focus is to provide an iconic customer service experience, but it's not. It's to sell vehicles, and that means running credit applications even when you know you shouldn't. They boast integrity but you really can't have much of it if you don't want your managers to hound you about quotas. Some managers are lovely, others don't have a clue and some others are downright nasty (rude). Managers also oftentimes don't agree on an answer to a question you may have, which just makes your life more difficult. By the time I left this job, I got anxious every time the phone rang.
