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

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere its definitely a job for guys that love cars, and have a vast knowledge about them. When i worked I enjoyed every bit of it because I'm a big car guy.

    Cons

    Sales can frustrating and the pay varies depending on commission so there may be a lot of pressure to sell a minimum amount of cars when you start off to meet certain goals. Pay could be better for Interns. For technical jobs do require certifications from schools such as UTI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was very supportive

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

    Pros

    Hands-down best training and growth opportunities, lots of camaraderie and team building get-togethers, catered lunches on Saturdays, management that is genuinely interested in your well being. Pay in sales is top notch, great benefits. Plenty of opportunity for paid time off; two weeks of vaca per year, every year (once you hit 10 years you get 3 weeks per year), sick pay, etc. Great discounts on vehicles.

    Cons

    Poor communication between sales and service departments. We're all on the same team. Let's communicate effectively. You'll get 6 paid holidays a year, including your birthday. Do not expect to have any vacation the last quarter of the year. Time off during this time period is strictly controlled and usually not accepted.

    Pros

    Park 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.

    Cons

    Managers 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.

    I worked at Park Place Motorcars as an intern (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 ManagementAdvice

    -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.

    -Modern

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take 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.
