Sterling McCall Ford service department is the worse service I have ever received in the 6 cities that I live in. I just received my car back after 3 different times over 3 weeks and my car now operates worse than before when I took it in. I told the manager this, and my response was, “hmmm, weird.” I did not get a full refund either. Everything done to my vehicle had nothing to do with what was wrong with it. They did not fix anything. My car turns off while driving. My check engine light is now on and also my air conditioner goes in and out. I am pregnant and they didn’t offer to fix this either! What is wrong with these people?! The technicians should be fired. I never complain about people’s jobs, but this treatment I received is horrendous. The first time I dropped it off, Mike (assistant manager (somehow)) never returned my calls or did anything he said he would do. I have no clue how he is the assistant manager. The actual manager is nice, but didn’t address my concerns or seem to care that my car still isn’t fixed. It’s worse! The third time I dropped it off, Doug was kind enough to actually keep me in the loop. However, I am extremely upset with this whole process and I need someone to make it right.

I work for Rivertown Collision in Columbus Ga. My manager is the worst manager ever!, He treats his employees and customers with such disrespect. He constantly tells employees they are going to be written up or fired. He curses his service writers and he is loud and rude to everyone. He makes derogatory statements which is very unprofessional! I tried to overlook him because I needed my job, It was a daily struggle working with him, not knowing his mood, or knowing when and who he was going to threaten with a write up or being fired. Several employees have left because of this hostile work environment. When he reprimands you he does it in front of other employees which is very unprofessional to say the least. My breaking point was last Thursday when he told me he was going to write me up for something that had nothing to do with me, and the General Manager was going to fire me. I was upset and I went to HR. and HR called the HR Manager and I spoke with him via speakerphone. Once I left HR I went and spoke to my General Manager and explained to him what had happened. I went home after leaving his office.

I spoke with the HR Manager the next day and he said that he spoke with my manager and he was not going to write me up, (probably because he realized he was wrong to begin with). According to HR it is perfectly fine for my manager to to threaten us daily and create a hostile work environment. ” Professionalism” is one of Group1’s core values, if this is professionalism I don’t want any part of this company. FYI, 3 employees have left Rivertown Collision in 2 weeks, this should throw up a red flag and should be addressed by corporate to see what can be done to prevent the manager from running another good employee off.

To Steve Beasley or Earl Hesterberg Jr. ————– I have sent a hand written letter to Group 1 Automotive about my problem,I have not heard a word back from anyone ! The lady who oversees your mail told me they would take my letter and give it to Mr. Beasley . I really don’t know if he has seen this letter or not because I have not heard a word from anyone YET!! All I’m asking is just do what’s right,this deal has been a hard pill to swallow.Where do I go from here? I don’t really know ! But I’m going to keep trying until I find someone within your company that’s willing to help one of their customers out.Can I count on you Mr. Beasley,Mr. Hesterberg.

Niine days ago today, I spent over $46,000 for a vehicle at Sterling McCall Nissan. I have a problem with the vehicle that I need to speak with someone about. I called all morning to speak with a manager and was referred to General Manager Chris Anderson, I have left several messages…….. No return call. I then called my salesperson Kingsley Ezeadum, he passed me off to manager Korey Williams……Still no call back.

I need to have this problem rectified as soon as possible.

I will start by saying I am appalled by the management that group 1 puts in place in its businesses. I have never worked in a more hostile environment in my life. The manager at the BMW of Mobile collision center is the premier example of setting a hostile work environment. He curses at technicians, makes lewd and discriminatory remarks, and spews racial remarks at every turn. Yet group 1 does nothing. I walked out of my job 2 weeks ago because Craig Rowley decided he wanted to start cursing me in front of other technicians. The “anonymous ” line has been called on him several times, and when he found out, he pulled technicians in his office to try to find out who it was for repercussions. Someone called me for an “exit interview” only to find out not 10 minutes later he knew everything I had said. I plan on filing a formal complaint with the better business bureau on group 1 and it’s actions of its managers that they do not hold accountable for any of their actions. It is clear that this corporation is only interested in numbers and not ethics.

You should file a complaint. You wouldn’t be the only one nationwide right now. I think many people have had the careless behavior they have towards employees. Research how to complain through EEOC or OSHA website – they handle a lot more than you would think as far as covering current or former employees of not so caring employers.

Just curious, did you get the matter resolved or get a response from a Group 1 Representative or the BBB? I am currently considering taking similar steps. My husband works for the company and after working at two different dealerships we are experiencing similar acts of unprofessionalism and unethical behavior. I am appalled that a company so large can have such bad image and does not do anything to rectify the situation. The only solution that I have saw so far is alienation to force employees to quit.

Thanks in advance.

One of the HR representatives called me back and my husband was able to resolve the matter with his supervisor. I pray that they keep their word to alleviate further escalation.

Ira Toyota of Tewksbury GM STEVE DALSIVA is so unprofessional. He should be removed because of the way he treats people and talk to people. He kicked me out of the store after I was giving my two week notice and never paid me
