Be prepared to be frustrated
The pay is less than what other sites pay. The training is mediocre. Premonition within the com6only happens if you are friends with management, if not then you'll always stay at the same level. Lots of talking behind peoples backs: from staff level all the way up to management.

Fast paced and good training opportunities
I worked at Perrys as a Service Advisor for Leyland. I found my colleagues to be friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed the training that was given to us have more training booked in. Working in the service team is very fast paced but we help each other out during busy times and days go very fast. I would recommend Perrys as an employer.

Worst place ever all for management
Worst place iv had the pleasure of working . Worked here for 12 months safe to say i would never go back even if it was the last garage on earth. Management are all for management and make nothing but false promises again and again. STAY WELL CLEAR DO NOT APPLY . Will rope you in with promising you everything then not stick to it . Really really sly staff all for them selves . Pay is absolutely ridiculous a lot lower than any other dealer . Want you to work every hour god send and not pay you right for it. Try and make you do overtime every day like you have to stay even tho other staff walk out the door at 5oclock . Don’t pay holiday pay right . List goes on !!!!! STAY WELL CLEAR!!!!
Pros
Couple of other techs good to get on with .
Cons
To many to list

By Far The Worst in Lancashire
If the shoe doesn’t fit they will ensure you are fully aware your not welcome & that also includes office management.
The staff dress like they don’t have a job & I have to say it costs nothing to have standards.

By far the worst company in the car industry I’ve come across. A branch manager......oh what’s his name again???? Never involves himself with the team he has at hand.

Members of staff who are part of the furniture from years of service, they certainly don’t like your opinion on what would be more sufficient to do the job. The only way is there way & the old way & so many mistakes but they know best as they have years of service.

Yes changes are needed so many flaws & mistakes & any new customers who buy a car check all documents are correct including your car taxed.

Any pros to the company....none whatsoever!!

My advice stay clear from working or even buying from this company & you will be in better hands with other dealerships as an employee & even a customer.
Pros
I got out
Cons
Far too many to mention

Awful..
Worst place ever to work. Unorganised, unfriendly ridiculously long hours. Brought in to change things for the better.... pfttt banging head against a wall scenario..... Senior management everyone’s best friend!!!! So unprofessional. If you have work standards and are a professional then avoid like the plague... if you have the manners and work ethic of a Jeremy Kyle guest then apply apply apply you will fit in perfectly 👏

Worst workplace I have ever worked
If you really don’t want to like you job then apply here. I worked here for a month and honestly was the worse place I worked. Service manager was very friendly however, the staff who I worked with were very unfriendly, always treating you like rubbish. Technicians were friendly and workshop controller was helpful but just felt like and treat like rubbish every single day. They say your finishing time is 5:30. This is more like 6:30. I would never work for Perry’s again, I was brought in to change things, however. They don’t like change and don’t like new people. So if you want a job with little perks, work here!
Pros
Service manager was nice
Cons
Long hours, unpaid commission, unfriendly staff, clicky environment, hostile customers

Treated like a robot and unappreciated, verbally insulted on a daily basis
Disgusting treatment of anything other than management and inner circle staff willing to spy on others. Bullying and racism is rife, with nothing whatsoever done by department or general managers after complaining about intimidating and behaviour not fit for a workplace. Branch managers in a world of their own, they get away with intimidating and insulting language, and wages behind industry average for similar positions. You are expected to do twice as much work as a similar position in a different company for less money. I was doing 2 jobs and being paid for the lower wage job only. I was very sick and could not get a doctors appointment one day, after asking if I should take the next day off to get a doctors note, i was told it was not necessary, then I was reprimanded for not supplying a doctors note. Overtime wages were NOT paid to me despite several requests. Management and HR department a joke and not fit for purpose. These people dont care about you, they use and discard people like toilet paper. Board members just see the bottom line, never the people. For a company that constantly drills "People First" into you on an almost hourly basis, they dont care about their own staff unless you are a manager or top performing new car salesman. I'd never ever work for them again, even if I was desperate. STAY WELL CLEAR.

Awful management
Firstly to get a job at Perry’s you have some major obstacles to get through - like a boring long winded assessment day where you are picked off like X factor or something. If your lucky you’ll get an interview at the branch where the management offer you the world. The atmosphere at this branch can be poisonous and the management talk to you like trash. If you have any self respect don’t bother working here. Training was minimal so I spent all day on the internet or fuelling cars. Oh you do get a company car but you have to pay for it!
Pros
Company car
Cons
Management, long hours, lack of training

Poor managment, poor wage structure, poor business to work for
Worked for Perry's for 5 years and when I was working there it was easily noticeable that the workshop technicians and management didn't get along and didn't want to work for the company, technicians wasn't valued to the company and don't pay them for there hard work, bonus scheme that you couldn't hit and when you did hit the target they always made sure you just missed out on it, have a very bad work environment if someone asked me wheather to work for them I would advise them not to
Pros
One or two decent workers
Cons
Everything above

Fast paced enviroment
A typical day at work would involve servicing and repairing vehicles, diagnostic on electrical systems, used and car preparation.
Learnt quite a lot of skills due to having to be jack of all trades!

Management only seem bothered about getting the work load done as quickly as possible and not about staff welfare.

Staff morall up and down due to inconsistent work load.

No opportunity of progression within the company.

Salary is poor compared for the skills required.

Only pros are having good banter with colleagues doing the job.
Pros
Good banter with colleagues
Cons
Feel unapreciated
