Steve Grindstaff hired a GSM for the Ford lot...brought him and his family all the way from AZ. He put a down pmt on a house here etc.

Only to be STABBED IN THE BACK!!!!!

Then 2 weeks later hired another from around here some where. And told the AZ guy they were now in competition for the job!

I am sure if the AZ guy knew that before hand he would not have uprooted and moved 2000 miles to work for this low life!

Oh..and the low life POS tells his workers that they are not there to make money to support their family's

they are there to make HIM money!

how could anyone buy a car from this POS?

he comes in there and sits up on the show room Podium and smokes ciggs!

He is breaking the law by smoking in a Retail store!

I agree with Bigsby! Anyone around here that has no idea what kind of "person" Grindstaff is, well they are idiots!
Trust me iraqvetguy, he's broke more laws than some petty smoking law.
and if someone actually took a job and moved that far before checking out that assholes reputation, and even some of those unfounded lake rumours, well....yeah....

doesn't surprise me, but the real question is, why would someone move from AZ to work at a car lot? Not dissing the profession, but I'm sure there are enough dealers there to have found a job. Most lots around here hire pretty consistantly.

I've been on Grindstaff's lot when they've had fake Chevrolet factory pricing stickers that inflated the MSRP by $1,500. That way, they could show you their fake invoices that were actually higher than the MSRP showing on the Chevy website. I pointed out the fraud to the salesman and told him what my research indicated I could get the car for, and he smugly told me he wished he could get that car for that kind of price, but they couldn't. I then drove straight to Bill Gatton's lot and got the same car for the price I wanted. I felt like calling the Grindstaff salesman and telling him he needed to start buying their cars at Bill Gatton.

The man is a lowlife who constantly takes advantage of people who know no better.

All new vehicles have two invoices...factory and dealer. They're not really "fake" invoices, you just have to do your research and know which invoice you're discussing when negotiating price. I dont know Grindstaff or anyone who works there but the job of most any car lot is to get the most profit on any vehicle they sell so any buyer who goes in unprepared is just asking to be taken advantage of. It's good you did your research and were prepared to walk if you couldn't agree on price. I will add the easiest vehicle buying experience I've ever had was done over the internet with a dealership in Knoxville. Being a larger city with more competition and selection, they seemed more willing to negotiate and with the negotiation being done via email there was absolutely no sales pressure that you have often get standing on the sales lot. I came away with the exact vehicle I wanted at an awesome price.

Grindstaff is a POS but his son in law that runs the Chrysler store is really the phony behind this operation. Adam Mullins plays good cop to Grindstaff's bad cop routine. Believe me, one of these phony's is not better than the other.

Hey lulz if you knew the car business you would know that being a gsm at a ford store can make you anywhere from 9 to 15k a month. And my dad was the az guy that moved and if you already wanna move to Tennessee anyway. Wow your a moron!!
