"That is a very interesting and bold statement. As a Fixed Ops guy I would agree even more with some of what you are saying. People like myself that run very successful fixed departments never get the shot to run the store. We have very good…"

His pay is going to be paid on results ...Period ! The day of the 6 figure GM based on his experience is long gone. Today the new GM is either gaining market share New & Used or he is failing. Both in Fixed Ops & Sale. It's his responsible to know his position in his market. He is either "Below , At, or Ahead" in market share. If he is in the first slot "below" market....he better know why he is and have and action plan to change it by the end of 2015.
