Awesome place to work, great people, and the best company party's

Service (Current Employee)
Grapevine, TX (US)

I have been working at Park Place Motorcars full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPark Place and Mercedes Benz pays you to lease a Car after working there for 3 years, Fun place to work, management is friendly, awesome benefits, 401K, Complimentary life insurance, always providing us with the tools we need, the newest technology at our finger tips, terrific training programs, most of the clients are nice, Park Place rented out medieval times twice, Cowboys Stadium twice, Ranger stadium four or five times, and six flags for company and family parties for employees.

ConsManagers Sometimes take a long time to move people up mainly because no one ever quits. so it can be hard to move up. hard to trust the sales managers to give you the best employee deal when purchasing pre-owned or new cars. found it better just to purchase elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. and Sales don't pick out Your favorite employees to give better deals to when purchasing cars should be fair to all Employees.

Summer Intern for Park Place -- great experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at Park Place Motorcars as an intern for less than a year

Pros-Park Place puts you through an EXCELLENT training program. Absolutely wonderful, efficient, and smart. And you're paid through it--a great perk for a college intern.
-The pay is competitive. Not the highest I've ever seen for an intern but definitely higher than all my other internships.
-They have internships in every category of the company.
-It's clear they care about you and your own personal growth.
-If you need something, be it a car to go to and from work, they will help you out.
-Everyone is so nice! And people take the time to remember your name.

Cons-I'm not sure if this is a con, but perhaps they care a little bit too much about your personal wants? They will go out of their way to give you work you want, but maybe too much of what you want.
-Sometimes there was a lack of work to do--but this is normal for most internships.

Advice to Senior Management-If an intern doesn't know exactly what they want to do, try giving them a variety of different kinds of projects, etc.
-Maybe an extra day here or there for us to explore different facets of the company. Or to see Park Place's other vendors, etc.

Experts in excellence? Not so much....

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Park Place Motorcars full-time

Pros-Good pedigree
-Well organized
-Focus on continuous improvement for the customer
-Modern

Cons-Poor commission structure
-No room for advancement
-Poor management
-No concern for employee welfare

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a more human look at the way you pay employees and perhaps you will retain more of them. It is evident that the company care for its clients, but the treatment of employees is sub par.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great if you want to work in automotive retail sales

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Park Place Motorcars

ProsNice facilities
Luxury car sales
Good benefits, pay and training available for sales people
One of the better auto dealership groups.

ConsIn management, company first, everything else next. Seen as a negative if not working on day off. Firing people for no job performance reason is a common practice for sales management at most auto dealerships.

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the work/life balance for sales people in order to secure and retain quality people.
