Worked at a branch in birmingham. Had no sales manager for about 3 months. Began my first career in an automotive industry but didn’t get support from management. What you do get is a lazy business manager who just sits on his desk just putting deals together. Who hardly second faces and helps out. Specially for a trainee sales executive. My sales drop because of lack of support from management and got sacked which is highly unfair.

Rubbish place to work
Rubbish place to work, management and higher not interested about the people who work there, only think about themselves. There shutting Citroen down and we are moving to Peugeot but got told 2 weeks before and was told our jobs are safe but now told our jobs are not safe. we haven’t got no information on anything. Absolutely rubbish
Technician in Banbury, Oxfordshire
Worst company I've worked for
Horrific management. Anything goes wrong and it's the technicians that get it. Workshop control doesn't have a system so get given jobs in any order and when customers come to collect cars during the day they wonder why their car hasn't gone in the workshop yet. Technicians expected to work passed the 5pm finish time until all jobs are done. I've been there 7pm onwards and that's not optional, they inforce it! Absolutely no work life balance. Saturday's are one in two and contracted so no pay for that. Even in their job advert they state 'when we are fully recoursed'. They are so far away from that it will take them years. No health and safety at all.
Sales Executive in Reading, Berkshire
Sadly, I can't give this business a positive review. The dealership is lovely and modern and Vertu as a business is great but Reading Mercedes has a management issue that has been documented in other reviews. Zero support, zero motivation, and zero interaction. Plenty of micro-managementI would strongly suggest that the Directors of Vertu take a long hard look at the management style and understand why people are leaving and writing these kinds of reviews and why it is such an unhappy placeI feel cheated that I was unable to enjoy a career with Mercedes and with Vertu.For the record, my peers within the Sales team at Reading Mercedes are all great people and I am sure that they will continue to lose some good salespeople if things don't change.

Accountant Very Stressed and reflected in atmosphere
In the right dealership this would be a great job but certain people made it a really bad atmosphere . The salary was fair for the role . I made some good friends but Accountant created a bad atmosphere due to his stressful role
