What Employees Say
I have been working at Auto Trader UK full-time for more than 3 years
Entrepreneurial mindset and everyone's ideas are never overlooked. Mature and collaborative environment to work in. There are many routes to progression and a lot of opportunities as long as you are... prepared to work for them. I go to sleep on a Sunday looking forward to work the next day unlike with other jobs. It really makes a massive difference when you enjoy your job. Management is clear and concise allowing you to crack on with your duties contributing toward the collaborative/entrepreneurial mindset this amazing company offers. The people are diverse but come together to create an amazing working environment. The company offers great benefits including pension scheme, private health care and other offerings dependent on your lifestyle and circumstances outside of work. Work events are great fun and have a good budget to ensure all staff are accommodated for.
The commute to Manchester. However, this isn't a negative of Auto Trader. The work space is amazing and being a digital business working from home is an option dependent on your department and... manager of course. Sometimes you can feel isolated if you do work from home or are field based. Also hard work is sometimes overlooked and not rewarded as much as you's maybe like.
Advice to Management
Make sure to comment, reward and celebrate great work from the staff.
I worked at Peninsula full-time for more than a year
Great training from Stephen Ball sets you up well. But as with most jobs the real learning is in the field. Given all the tools to succeed.
Lots of miles for some very mediocre appointments. Maybe allow Skype calls to the remote destinations.
Advice to Management
Owen Clark is one of the best managers ive had. 1 regret is he wasn't my manager from when I started. 12p a mile. For most of my journeys on these roads were costing me money.
