AutoNation Fortune 200 company with a family environment

ECommerce (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL (US)

I have been working at AutoNation full-time for more than a year

ProsAutoNation is a real family environment, as it is a real team focused on a single goal. Teams work to push the envelope on innovation by addressing the needs of the customer. I am in a new team in eCommerce, which feels like an incubator with the backing/resources of a Fortune 200. Fun and challenging environment.

ConsBiggest challenge is the industry. The teams are focused on changing a 100 year old industry with modern technologies. The constant friction point is the balance between the OEM and store change as the largest automotive retailer in the US.

Advice to Senior ManagementNever stop your relentless pursuit of delighting the customer. The team is 100% behind making a difference in the industry with the leadership of Mike Jackson and Mike Maroone at the helm.

Why I like working for Autonation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Memphis, TN (US)

I have been working at AutoNation full-time for more than 10 years

Prosmanagement and the employees work well together and even though we are busy, the atmosphere is light and for the most part easy. There is plenty of opportunity to learn and grow in the dealership and help is there for the asking.

Conswaiting time for benefits is too long, some areas of the operation is not very user friendly making it difficult to complete some tasks.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Company...I've been with them for over 20 Years!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Denver, CO (US)

I have been working at AutoNation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAutoNation provides their employees great benefits such as 401k, medical, longevity bonus, Vacation Pay, etc. My Customer Care Director is a straight shooter so you always know exactly what's expected of you and receive accolades with your successes.

ConsI don't really have any cons. AutoNation is a good company to work for. I've seen people leave, but they always end up coming back. We do work long hours; however that is to be expected in the Automotive Industry.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
