working at imperial has been very enjoyable. The staff are all very friendly and you get a sense of a “family unit” very quickly. I have enjoyed working with the company over the past 6 years and watching it grow into what it is now gives a sense of pride.
Pros
Friendly people on all levels
Cons
Commute to work since HQ moved location

Hours of work are crazy around 60 hours a week ... even though it is claimed you work on shifts ..not the case.

They do not care about you as a person and your job is always under threat especially if they are not hitting target.

No teamwork it is every man for himself , even if I have to tread on my colleague to get a deal.

My experience with Imperial Cars was a lot better than my past. They are very supportive inside and outside of work. They are a very professional company to work with and I say with as they work with you not like a lot of companies who expect a lot of things unlike Imperial cars who help and support you which is very refreshing and takes a lot of pressure from you.

Like any job if you truly work hard you will get both rewarded and recognised which leads to rapid promotion if you are a motivated person.
Although the sites are open late the rota is balanced so you have quality time off.

I joined the company nearly five years ago, when it had 6 sites so not small back then however today there are 17 sites with more in the pipeline. Such expansion has afforded me the chance to progress within the business, starting as a salesman progressing to a senior sales executive and then handover manager before undertaking my current role as a sales controller. Imperial really is a company where if you are willing to put the work in then the rewards are definitely there to be had.

Started the job in December 2019 with no previous experience in the trade, didn't know what to expect really but can genuinely say i love working here. The management is top class with opportunities to progress in the company which is my aim. The team i work with in tamworth make my job fun and exciting as its a good competitive environment with everyday being different. The hours are long per week but if your willing to put the work in you'll be rewarded with the salary. Follow the company process and you will do just fine.
Pros
company philosophy, management, fun, salary, company car, everyday different
Cons
long hours

Having previously worked in the Motortrade Imperial Cars are a proactive company to have joined. They embrace innovative systems and have made the customer buying process extremely slick for both the employee and the customer.
The offsite preparation structure is refreshing with stock delivered to site for immediate delivery.

The work life balance that Imperial offers is industry leading offering me two days off each week. So far, so good.

Training manager is brilliant, so are the management they really praise the ones who put the extra effort in. Career progression is always there if you work hard

A job in sales would have not been my first choice, but Imperial Cars gave me the training, opportunities and confidence to discover that this career path was the right choice

I feel acknowledged and valued as an employee and I get out what I put into my job role I am paid fairly and constantly have further mentoring and help from upper management

Great company to work for, work/home life balance is great, get two days off a week and an extra weekend off during the month. If you are career driven and really want to move up this is the place to do it.

If you want to work long hours, and get topped up for minimum wage, then Imperial Cars is the place for you. Massive staff turnover as people realise in the first few weeks the place is a joke.

Poor basic wage and poor commission structure. To much staff and not enough business to go around. If you want to earn £16,000 a year and work 50+ hours a week then Imperial Cars is the place to be.

Although not being at imperial long they have helped me to fit in well, everyone is accommodating and always happy to help! You have good incentives to always keep you aiming higher and even though i haven't been there long i can tell them my confidence has grown, and will continue to. They are so friendly and will go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable there. You can have a laugh and it is such a relaxed atmosphere but we are competitive ;) The interview was a relaxed one and spent most of it chatting - they like to find your true colours

I've only been at Imperial Cars for a few months now and I love it, the team are really friendly and welcoming. The management are so understanding, relaxed but professional. We have a target to hit but it isn't pressured, you do what you can and the management make it fun, you get given targets and prizes. They definitely reward you for your hard work. Fantastic team to be a part of. :)

I've worked for Imperial Cars coming up to 3 years, and it has been unlike any of my other previous work experiences. This is a place where you can truly begin your career. Expect yourself to be busy all the time, in this fast paced environment within the Motor Industry where there is never a dull moment!

Since being here I have been able to progress onto new positions which have become available with the expansion of the company. You will do well here as long as you are focused and self motivated. The most enjoyable part of working for Imperial Cars has to be the people you meet here, we are all one BIG family!
