Vehicle Sales Executive in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh
Oppressive egotistical management. Do yourself a favor look elsewhere.
Oppressive working environment with poor quality management.
They try to rule by abuse and fear. All the recruitment blurb about a family business that care couldn't be further from the truth, they only care about reporting figures nothing else.
They are closed to any progress or ideas unless they can claim them. The Franchise Principal runs on ego.
The HR department have no confidentiality and report all to the "Powers That Be". So don't feel that fairness will be exercised.
On the up side they are not that astute or not as astute as they think they are in my opinion. Staff are bullied and humiliated and when it is reported to HR, it is played down and blamed on these staff members not being up to the job.
Sales meetings are just the blame game to cover up poor management.
There are some very good employers within the motor trade, this isn't one of them in my opinion.
The Furlough Scheme there was made play of by boasting 100% pay for staff, this was for 1 month then they took back 1 weeks holiday pay to cover it and then played on it ever since . Strangely enough they never mentioned that they themselves as a company were receiving business support funding from the Government at an average of their last 3 years returns and the furlough pay also.
Really, do yourself a favor and find a position with another company.
Administrator in Broxburn, West Lothian
Steady and honest employer
Worked here for nearly 2 years. Good team and my boss is supportive. Coped well during the pandemic thought my job was at risk but they really looked after us well. Have refered a friend of mine last month and she is enjoying it too.
Not getting paid correctly not interested just want add on sales , please stay away it is the worst place I ever worked, working hours so long, pile on more work that you dont have time to do, I have worked for 30 years and thus was the worse months if my career
Worst place I've ever worked!
No flexibility or compassion shown if personal problems.Managers were bullies and spoke to me like something they had stood in. Never been made to feel so low in my 25 year working life!Treated like school kids. Management didn't like different departments mixing and didn't like you being friendly with colleagues outside of work.Very poor hourly pay. Only decent wage due to having to work long hours, every other Saturday and bonus scheme.So glad I left when I did. Still work within the motor trade but working less hours, getting paid alot more and treated like a proper human being!
Always made to feel unappreciated no matter what the outcome, company is still in the past, top line managers looked after but below that watch out. Who's checking the checker?!!! HR dept needs to be looked at many staff left due to the bullying manageress. The family run theme is just that and nothing more, they couldn't care less about your family. Targets are the only thing that matters.
