Not bad place to work although basic salary isn't the best, wage made up of a confusing bonus system as well. Staff are all nice enough and friendly working environment.

Service booking (Former Employee) –  Poole, Dorset12 June 2017
Working in the service booking department for Sandown Mercedes Benz is not a nice place to work.
It's a call centre where everything you do (and I mean everything) is monitored.
Calls come in at a rapid pace and you can expect to be pushed so hard that mistakes are inevitable.
When you do make a mistake then you can expect to have your wages adjusted. Fines are common.
When on a call you have to ensure you are saying everything you should be. (Doesn't matter if the customer wants to hear it or not). If you miss bits out you are penalised. Miss enough and any bonus you've worked hard for over the month will be affected.
Targets are achievable with absolute focus and commitment over the month but it's soul destroying trying to achieve them when 90% of feedback from management is so negative even when you've given them your soul.

It's commonplace for staff to be in tears.
They won an award for customer service but the staff were not suitably rewarded.
Very high staff turnover.
Pros
Good working hours
Cons
Treated poorly and run into the ground

The management was not very stable through my time with the company. So every so often the structure would change dramatically on how our branch was ran.

New Car Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Glasgow, Glasgow19 May 2017
Mercedes Benz has been a great company to work for as it is a great brand with plenty of choice for customers. I really enjoyed working with Management as they were understanding and you knew what was expected of you. I have been in the Motor Trade for many years now and feel that this has been one of my best experiences. The job is Fast paced as a Sales Consultant however you are rewarded for hard work, would definitely recommend it.
Pros
Nice Company Car, Great Brand Image
Cons
Long Hours
