Most help that I’ve got at my work was from an immigrant workmate.
You must be very skilled otherwise you will be in the check out list.

You also need to make good relationships with management.

To be successful and stay long time there you should be very skilled, hard worker and fast working person and not to be very proud of yourself.
Pros
Get payed on time
Cons
No skill improvement, fast peace, stressful

Your treated as a replaceable number and given no respect, bullying and harassment is a daily occurrence with absolutely no support from managers or HR! I would not recommend working here to anyone based on the working environment alone let alone everything else.

This is an average workplace, the call centre still needs work but there are incentives in place. The main concern is the advancement opportunities, there is supposed to be room to grow but it appears that this is all hearsay.

I worked as new car salesman in a dealership before AHG took over. It was like being in a war ,cut throat selling and no respect. When AHG took over it changed it all.

While change can sometimes be good, this organisation was going through so much growth it was hard to keep up with the changes. Culturally, and process/practice wise, AHG operated like a small family company, which was chaotic for the size AHG was at the time, with continuous growth. Everything was on the fly, zero constituency.
Pros
Opportunity to learn a lot of things. Never got bored.
Cons
So much work to do, there were never enough hours in a day to play catch up to prepare for the exponential growth.

Team Leaders have no training, rules change constantly. Good for a couple of people but not others to have to follow them. All the favourites override rules as they are friends with bosses. Duties constantly change dont know whether your Arthur or Martha. Work hard to get target every month, not appreciated or rewarded for your efforts. Bonus is pitiful for the work you do. One team leader writes than instead of then shows the intellect. Have no clue which people should do what with their strengths and weaknesses. Another team leader just eats and eats and becomes a Sargent walking up and down the room even though she may not be the supervisor of that group. FREEZE on putting on more staff because The highest boss is the 29th highest paid in WA $2 million per annum salary what a joke! meanwhile the plebs work hard to get pitiful wage and be pushed to breaking point. Definitely not worth the blood, sweat and tears
Pros
Wow fresh fruit on Mondays
Cons
Plenty they con customer to buy Customer Care plan thats worth nothing the paper is written on

Working as a temp for Bowman Recruitment for 3 different departments over a 15 month period allowed me to associate with a lot of staff and assist where required. A typical day was very full on and busy especially in Customer Relations. The job location was local and on site parking was offered which was a bonus.
Pros
Local

no mental health support

peer pressure from management and bean counters so that the department in the dealership can make a buck and the person making a sale and a commission up to 50%


Efficiency rates



Poor pay rate (they pay the award rate personally being a dealership they should pay above the award)



High stress levels



Constant staff leaving and many who were great techs



Unsafe hoists



Non existent management support



Old workshop



Little or no training



No benefits



No communication from head office or management



Expectation of knowing everything



Poor workshop conditions


plenty of bullying
Pros
none
Cons
all the above

Not everyone will have the same experience working for this company, and it will depend on the dealership and team you are a part of. Being a younger, inexperienced Business Manager, I believe I should have been supported further then the training we received upon starting with AHG. After extending my traineeship (by another 3 months!) due to not being able to find a placement for me, I was finally placed in a dealership where I could excel, but due to the 'dealership politics' I was shuffled to another yard, and had to rebuild relationships with new staff.

AHG make the job much HARDER then it needs to be, which then creates a snowball effect by creating unnecessary stress, which effects your performance. The cycle continues until; instead of being guided in the best way to achieving your targets, they're dumped and moved onto another yard, without receiving a chance to prove oneself again.


AHG destroyed any passion I once had for the finance industry by overworking, under appreciating, under paying, constant criticism, l and not supporting one of the most valuable, and important staff members in the dealership.


With some big changes destined for the Automotive Finance sector, I believe AHG one day, again, be a great company to work for, but they have been stuck in the past for a long time, and it's time they learn to adapt to the changes, and treat (and pay) their BM's for ALL their hard work, not just hitting unrealistic targets.


If you are hard nosed, tough skin and enjoy a high pressure and faced paced environment, you will love working for AHG, as long as

Every employee is treated like a number rather then a person.
The only major benefit is the Christmas Adventure World Party (WA Only).

Staff purchases on cars not that great.

A lot of reporting to be done for little improvement.
Pros
Automotive Discounts
Cons
Constant Reporting

A large Automotive company that offers an unparalleled number of positions and opportunities. A good company if you are seeking stability and long term prospects. Because of their size, you can tend to get 'lost' in the system and begin to feel you are just a number on their payroll.
