Wanting when it will fully sink.
I wonder if Auto Nation and Sonic recognize their bad decisions a few years ago.
It has been 3 weeks or so since this bad idea of a layoff. I have heard numerous leaders complaining that cuts were too deep in certain groups. A rumor is going around that at least one laid off person might be offered a contract to come back because... read more

As someone in management at CdK let me be clear: front line managers were in no way involved with this layoff. We found out literally the day before the layoff. We did. It select who was to go, only told it was happening. Many people were let go with... read more

Did anyone else notice all reviews were removed from the CDK Global Facebook page? I would love it if all of our customers would email MacDonald directly with their complaints. Maybe he can resolve all their issues with "straight talk."
This is a gem - told us that the reorg preceded the RIF, and then went on to show us a temporary org chart. Man, they must think we're id--ts.
The resounding battle cry at CDK. Yet every move dictates the exact opposite. Here is the priority: 1 CDK 2 CDK 3 CDK 4 Shareholders (they don’t know they’re being screwed yet; think Toy’s R Us) 5 Customer 6 Employee’s

Worked for CDK for 2 years. They hired some good talent and under paid them. My management always said we were not a call center, however, they ran the operations like a call center. I sincerely feel bad about the layoffs. I left on my own due to the... read more
Can somebody explain to me how the decision was made on who will get cut? Why did we lose some of our best people? This makes no sense whatsoever. This certainly was not based on merit, from what I can see. I guess it was more about how much you make... read more
