i work at Westway which is owned by the same company that owns GP and Town East so i dont know what its like working at GP or TE but if they are anything like Westway they arent the greatest place to work but they arent the worst either. If you can put up with the bull shit 5 star north richland hills is probably the best dealer in the area

Finstad is a good guy. Worked with him for damn near a decade. Does he expect a lot? Sure. But to my knowledge he is very fair and reasonable. He worked his way all the way up the food chain there.

like i said im just going off what i was told by people working there, ive only met finstad once and that was at my asset graduation he seemed like a nice guy. my buddies that work there now tell me it just took some getting use to especially after leaving a really laid back place like westway. our autotrans guy use to work there and for some reason him and finstad never got along and he always talks about how much he hated it there. so i hear a lot of mixed reviews, having said that im might be trying to get a job there if our new gm keeps up his bullshit, the only reason ive stayed this long is because the guys there are like family
