I worked with a great team and felt supported by the company as a whole, although I did see lots of managers come and go within the dealership. That said, my personal experience was good overall and I would definitely recommend Listers to friends and family. It wasn't right for me at the time but I would work there again if the right position became available.

A family business that doesn’t really care about its staff, 50hrs to 60 hrs per week, pay is good when times are good, terrible when it’s not due to the commission structure.

Having worked for The Listers Group for over 26 years I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. No matter the age range they cater for every need and every requirement at whatever stage of life. Career opportunities, training and family focus is and has been the mantra they work by from the Directors to the floor staff everyone is looked after, supported and recognised. I came from nothing and over the years they developed me in to what was needed in the Motor Trade to survive.
Pros
Challange Myself every day
Cons
The challange i set for myself every day

Average car retailer, selling many well branded vehicles.. new and used.
Management as helpful as a bucket with a hole in it.

Often left to your own devices, taking care of your own development.

There are many very good car dealerships in most areas to choose from.

Would not bother , twice I have worked for them , very poor management , was told in September they needed to let me go ,due to me been off work for 3 months with a back injury, which probably was caused by doing work on the premises to be able to open up the place in time , turns out I have 4 discs in my back that now need fusing and a small fracture, I have already had an injection in the spine but still not able to return to work .

I started working at listers Landrover droitwich 2 and a half years ago, i thought I had fell on my feet.....for about a week or 2! DO NOT work here!! They will make promises that they do not keep. They will manipulate you, they will try and have your pants down over anything if your face doesn't fit! They have a 90% staff turn over rate for a reason, don't waste your time with these joker's!

Working at Listers Vw was generally ok to begin with. One thing I did learn is that the company has a high turn over of staff. If your face doesn’t fit within the business do not expect to last very long.

Hours are also really long and don’t expect to have a lunch break. No support or appreciation from management team especially the Aftersales Manager. when you complain or voice your opinion expect your job to be made much more difficult.


Avoid at all costs, even if it’s a last resort it’s generally not worth it.

You'd get shouted at for not being quick enough although you'd be doing things. No help ar encouragement from management, colleagues and the aim would be to to hit daily budget targets not really concerned about the customer

High turnover of staff mainly due to the Service Manager. Thinks he actually runs the company don't actually know anyone that wants to work here. Would be a decent place and morale would be increased if Service Manager left (fingers crossed)

Enjoyable work but can get repetitive, No knowledge of cars or servicing was needed as all training is provided, Normally a routine shift pattern as dealership is open between 8.00am-6.30pm along with scheduled Saturday requirements.
Cons
Shift work

Even though you are told that you work a 5 day week, the managers make you feel bad for taking days off. They arrange collections with customers on your day off and guilt you into going in to see the customer. Sales events are held and everyone has to cancel days off as it is all hands on deck. Your pay is salary and commission so extra hours don’t always pay more money.

Despite the extremely bad health and safety ie lack of ear plugs and clear walkways through the work shop.

The supervisor in the assembly room is extremely rude name calling and a bad attitude towards the employees especially the new ones.

The company it’s self has a good reputation for quality work. And both MDs are very friendly.

And you will be expected to buy your own tools on minimum wage that’s very unlikely to increase.

Within my time working alongside Listers I have not only enjoyed and had the benefit of working within a structured and energetic environment but also proud to have been allowed to progress within my role, Listers openly encourages internal training promotion and support.
Pros
Training and managment support
Cons
Long hours
