question about employee pricing.

Hello,
I have been a service tech at a Buick, Pontiac, GMC dealership for 10 years. I know that GM gives me a discount on the three brands that my dealer carries, but do I get the same discount on Chevrolet vehicles as well? Ive asked my salesmen but they aren't much help.
Thanks

You only get your employee discount if the owner of your dealer also owns a chevy store as well. In my case I sale for Reliable Chevrolet which is owned by the Van Tuyl Company so I could go to one of their Pontiac stores or Buick or whatever and get Employee price but if it is just some random dealer not owned by your owner then unfortunately you don't qualify.

Thanks,
That definitely lets me know where I stand. I may have to wait longer for the camaro, I have good credit and a lot to put down. I will be able to get a g8 gxp cheaper.

Yes, but is that what you WANT? Or what you'll settle for. Sorry to have to say this, but if you're only in it for the lowest price, then your heart wasn't set on the Camaro in the first place.

Try and find someone that can get you a Friends and Family type discount (supplier) if that's available when you want to go purchase. You'll be able to save some that way. Or wait and see how many are stuck on the lots due to the economy. You may end up getting what you want anyway.

I definitely do not want the G8 over the camaro. Its crazy that I can fix any brand under warranty but only have incentives to buy cars I have no interest in. I will wait as long as it takes and travel as far as I have to to get the deal that I want. When the time comes I will call customer assistance or my area rep and see if they can do something about it. Ive only owned gm vehicles.

I got my G8 GT at Employee pricing. I'll fight hard to get the same or better deal on the Camaro.

Unfortunately this is not the case otherwise I could have sold my sister and brother-in-law their trailblazer ss.

The way it works is that their are GM employees and then there are GM dealership employees. GM employees can go to any GM dealer and buy for GMS (employee price) but dealership employees only get GMS at the dealer they work for or like I mentioned earlier they get it at any dealership that is owned by the same company ie: Van Tuyl dealers, Autonation, Sewell, ect.
