We all know many dealers still make money the old fashioned way, in spite of themselves. If we want to attract top notch professionals to our industry we need to be able to quickly identify attributes of the poorly managed and not employee focused stores.   Lets put together our Top Ten (or 20) Ways to know you work for a bad dealership. 

Keep responses down to two brief sentences.

....you start your new job and there is no orientation or policy handbook. The compensation plan is not even in writing!
You know you work for a "bad" dealership when your store doen't have any set processes in place for sales, service, internet etc...
when........you hear that they are betting cheeze wiz sandwiches in the lunch room on how fast they are going to blow you out!
When the person with the most tenure was not at last year's Holiday Party!
...the dealership still has a VCR and your training is conducted by a guy on VHS tape...in black and white.
The owner dodges calls from the floorplan company.
When one rollback cuts your total month's volume by 50%
....the sales training consists of "figure it out or get a new job!"
When the bank your paycheck is drawn on, tells you to "deposit it at your bank and it should be good by the time we receive it".
...you ask Management what CRM you use and none of them can confidently answer the question.
... the office Manager buys W2 forms in the 500 pack.
...when new salespeople prospect and are told "I 'll never be back there again!"
When you General Manager stays behind closed doors and closes the blinds a lot. Hmmmm
