Watch out for this employer, he uses Automotive News, Careerbuilder and local papers to lure automotive managers, sales people and tech's from out of state, this guy will pay you for a month or so then start reducing your pay, he will not pay the federal miminum wage for employees punching the clock. He also refuses to pay vendors such as local advertisers, dent and paint repair companies, he pays NO ONE what he has agreed to. I have made a very sucessful living in the automotive industry for over 30 years and want to let you know you REALLY don't need a job that bad to get sucked in by this bi-polar liar, he is a true piece of feces, the law suits are mounting it is only a matter of time before he is flipping burgers at Mc Donalds, he exploits his family on his website to try to earn credibiity I can't imagine hiswife and kids don't know what a piece of ### he really is.

You have been warned, if you want to fiind out for yourself take a position with this ### and find out...

    Yup, I wanna kill him too! Oct 01, 2018

    Joining the pack here guys. This Sob owes me for 2 months. I was the GSM of his Ford store in Chiefland. Please, any manager doing his research on this guy, don't take the job!! You would make more and have a better chance of getting paid working for Wal Mart. A pathological liar and coke head. Speaking of Wal Mart, you can't even cash one of his checks there! Seriously, they won't take them. FYI - his stores are where crack heads go to die. I was working out of a 1973 trailer. Just the worst of the worst. Somebody do the world a favor and put a bullet in this guy!

    Plattner must go down! Aug 26, 2017

    I was duped also. Was promised things that never happened. Everything was a lie. He only wants to pay a draw to managers and that is it. Look on indeed he is constantly hiring managers over and over and over again. When I applied he was hiring for 4 stores at the same time! I needed a job so I took it. I wish I would have googled him first. I really don't understand how he is in business. He doesn't pay any vendors. We couldn't do a dealer trade with anyone because he has screwed over everyone he comes in contact in. Do not work for this man or buy a car from him! He is as shady as they get!!

    I was in charge of Advertising for 9 months. Reduced budget over 100k and sold more cars yet was still treated like a failure and paid like a line cook. THATS SAID-- if you are smart you will meet many vendors and position yourself for a better position with a repudable company. I hate to say it but I wouldnt be where I am today without this job. If you can handle Doug, you can handle any boss and will appreciate them. Just my two cents.

    I needed two sets of car keys RIGHT AWAY but Doug Plattner said it would take two days to have the second set of keys forwarded to me. This is unacceptable behavior on the part of Doug Plattner! I wanted that second set of keys NOW - Not Tommorow!
