Worked in the IT department, very much proactive and team focussed. Good people to work with who share the same vision.

Enjoyable experience to work there.

Management are the most overpaid useless beings on site.

They sit in their little offices on their phones texting mates and laugh at you if you ask them to help with an issue.


You’re told to handle the situation and follow it through and then you get in trouble when it hits the fan.

Made redundant after 15 years because of cut backs at Sheffield as they paid millions for a new dealership and can’t afford to pay the cost of running the business and wages

I worked across 3 sites over 9 years under a range of managers, although there was always one common goal there seemed to be some rather strange, and sometimes backwards ways of trying to achieve this goal, which could be very frustrating.

Staff are lovely, great to get on with and their banter helps the day go quicker. Very busy site with constant enquiries and lots of customers through the doors, especially on weekends. Frequent training and support from managers too which is great. Fabulous retainer and a good basic salary. You have to check the progress of your own sold cars as some do fall through the net understandably. Great diary system and fantastic pay plan! Highly recommend working for Sytner Group!
Pros
Constant training and support, and bonuses that are very easy to achieve
Cons
No fixed lunch break and long hours

Working in a large organistion is always dependent on your relationship with your line manager. Mostly, my managers were great. Some, were simply aweful to work for. But on balance a very good organisation and probably as good as it gets for working for a motor retailing group.
Pros
Great franchises and facilities
Cons
Kpi, Kpi, KPI. But that's the same wherever you go nowadays.

My particular dealership was an enjoyable place to work, until the master tech and aftersales manager would fight for superiority.
This caused a hostile atmosphere and sometimes ruined the day.

Organisation was poor due to a reactive management style.

Given the opportunity to progress through the ranks from Trade Parts Representative through to Assistant Manager in Aftersales. During my time here the company was taken over and had to take on board different work practices.

Great place to work for with great people. Commission can be amazing and awful, but that is the joys of sales, right?

Only down side, which is a big one, if the working days off and not having many days off to begin with. Really not great if you have a family.
Pros
Great commission when targets are Acheived
Cons
very long hours and working days off - not good for personal life
