Dojo...how would you feel if your little suit next to Melo's (Which your over head is nt a fraction of theres) was in trouble and you had to sell your Tranformer yellow camaro to pay yourself a pay check and people where bashing you...how would you feel???
Local, since you obviously know me, who are you? As a background for those who don't, I own the martial arts school (a type of business that has seen several go out of business because it is a "disposable income" activity) next to Melo's in the Safeway Shopping Center.

But here's the thing. I'm NOT in trouble because I don't make stupid business decisions. I never look at someone who walks in and assume they can't afford classes. I never lie in an attempt to make a sale. I never fail to deliver on a promise. I have always been up to date on how to run a business in a proper and profitable manner, yet staying true to how the martial arts should be.

Have I always been a good business man? Of course not. Have I made mistakes? Of course. Have people bashed me? Yes. Guess what I did? I learned from the criticism, made the proper adjustments, and improved as a businessman (and more importantly, improved as a person) for it. When people have a legitimate complaint against me, instead of getting defensive, I thank them.

Has my business been effected by the economy? Sure... My best year was 2008. 2009 dropped about 15%, 2010 saw improvement of about 1%, and 2011 is showing about the same as 2010. The simple truth is, that most businesses fail because the person running it has made poor decisions that led to it's downfall. That's what has happened at Groth. Why should I feel bad for them?

You shouldn't have had to wait more than 2 days. You haven't got your handle because they likely didn't order it. I'll bet you anything you go up the street & they got several of those handles in stock.
I finaly got my handle in on Tuesday, Just for kicks I called Dublin Chevy with the part # and sure enough they had plenty in stock and said it was a next day item....WTF!!!! It's sad cause I really don't care for Dublin Chevy and would rather keep my business in Livermore.

Groth could of got the handle there as well ... but the Indian Owner of Dublin will not help Groth with parts or cars because he wants them to go out of business so he can control all of the tri valley!! He did it to Central Chevy in fremont,Fitzpatrick Chevy in concord,and Hayward Chevy....Just like those Subway's and 7-11's...There trying to take over this country!! Dont give that guy your money!!

Actually Dublin Chevrolet used to help them out quite a bit. The groths however ruined that relationship by picketing Dublin Chevy when Dublin was selected to showcase the Volt & the groths weren't. So robin has a fit and sends one of her kissass cronies to go "protest". Well the boys in Dublin quickly figured out who the picketer was & he fled with his tail in between his legs. Nice move Jacklyn! Another failure for team groth.

You see, robin & prick never worked for anything they own. They had that dealership handed to them & they ran it into the ground by lacking business ethics & common sense.

BTW: When are you moving? I don't hear the commercials on the radio about you "moving forward" any more!

I believe that it was the union picket... not Groth because Dublin is NON union shop and pay there guys pea nuts and treat them like shit...And the man who was there was not Groth he just happen to buy a car from Groth a long time ago and had Groth plate frames...Get your facts straight

funny stuff written here by old Jimbo himself that got fired after he went on his racial rampage at Chase bank the other day. When the cops have to be called in every time ol' Moriera goes on his tride you have nothing but a waste of police time. Jimbo take your problems and go find that good paying job you thought would be handed to you LAST time you got fired but the Union made them hire you back. I can speak for the employees of Groth that we dont' want you around anymore and we are SICK OF YOUR SHIT! Best thing is that we dont' have to wear those red shirts you always were commenting about on Friday's so we aren't your postal tride target anymore. Jim Moriera get yourself a life dude (but keep up the mandatory anger managment sessions that you had to take to get your job back-you really need those!) Get over you were fired from yet another job-i am sure it will keep happening in your life with what a complete LOSER you are.

Jim we all know this pleasanton poster is you. Being fired and escorted off the premesis by the police last week, you are now finding yourself with nothing to do? Sure, sit at your computer all day and post these blogs. Better yet, why dont' you go get that job over at Dublin becuase you are SO GOOD that they would be LUCKY to have such a good NUT working for them! Sure, why you are there why don't you talk your curry and Osmama crap to Inder and see how much he likes you. You are a racist angry idoit and Groth is lucky to be rid of your crap.

Must've been a slow day for team groth as they were quick to respond to my earlier post.

So local, if groth had no involvement why did Dublin cut them off? You should get YOUR FACTS straight as it was confirmed that it was indeed a groth employee there!

And "thetruthdies" & "goawayJIMMORIERA" aka robin, You go on a diatribe about some guy you fired & you assume I'm him?!? You really are as delusional as they say you are. Not everyone that dislikes you has been employed by you. Do like "local" says and get your facts straight. If I was that moriera guy, I'd sue you for defamation of character.

Do the people of Livermore a favor and just ride off into the sunset! Nobody is going to buy your lemony used cars or your parts that take 2+ weeks to get in.

More like "An entitled immigrant who thinks Americans suck especially the whitie versions"?!??!

What you don't get is there is something to be said for 'healthy competition'. Some day the shoe will be on the other foot and Mr. Indian will need something from someone in order to perform business and he won't get it.=) karma is a she-dog.

My friend works at this dump and all he does is complain about it, everything from his payroll checks bouncing to how Robin Groth stopped paying the medical premium with out telling the employees. I tell him he should find a new job before this place folds but he seems determined to go down with the ship, I just don't see how he can stay so loyal to a place that treats the employees so bad. To each his own I guess.

Dublin cut them off because thats his way of enabling Groth from conducting business...and get the business going his way...its all part of his master plan to take over the Groth's francise and controlling the area so Livermore people have no choice but to drive to Dublin for cars and parts and get treated poorly...Or drive to Tracy..Thats his excuse. Just remember that Groth was there first for many ,many yrs before GM gave him the dealerships...which in 2009 he almost lost him self but held on by borrowing money from people and family and kissing GM's ass, that he is yet to pay back.

Dojo,
I bet you payed all the money for the dumb decals that say tranformer that will never be worth more then a regular Camaro...There is no value add for that..And I bet Dublin told you "There not going to make many of these" so it would be worth more...Horse shit..The decals are nothing but stupid..If I where you I would just take them off ..a least the ones on the outside..the inside you might not be able to. The car would look cleaner

No... I'm a dork who absolutely loves Transformers, and I wanted that car. I knew exactly what model and everything that I wanted before I stepped foot into the dealership. Simple as that. lol

I really don't dont appreciate being written off as a former employee, I'm an actual customer or better yet former customer now.
goawayJIMMORIERA is obviously Robin Groth her self or an employee with nothing to do while on the clock. Just so you know I was never trying to slam Groth if anything I was sharing my experience with the other readers here on the forum, I think If something fishy is going on down there others have the right to know. I really hope Groth gets its s@#t together, like I said in an earlier post I would rather keep my business in Livermore.

I see you already miss me,Robin! Do you really think I am so scared of you guys that I have to hide behind a fake name to talk about you? You want to sit here and call me a loser, yet I worked for you for the last 9 years so what does that make you?

And as far as the bank goes, I wouldn't have to deal with such lousy service if you didn't bounce so many damn checks! Who in their right mind would deposit one of your rubber checks knowing it's likely to bounce?? So yeah, I was a little irritated that day having to pay $6 just to cash my damn paycheck! And when the little man @ the bank is asking me where I bank @ & I tell him its none of his business he tells me to get out of his bank. So I leave and tell him sorry about bin laden! He then calls you guys crying and I get fired the next day for some b.s. invoicing errors from April! I'm not trying to justify what I said was right, but don't try to label me a racist. I have friends and family from all nationalities and all walks of life. Can you say the same?

Now then let's address the red shirts. There was never any talk of red shirts. I only made fun of your pansy husband's pink shirts that he likes to wear with his daisy dukes around the shop!

And for the record, I did complete the anger management that I agreed to! I'd suggest you take the course yourself, but I think your issues lie much deeper than that. Perhaps you should take a break and seek some help for yourself or maybe even rehab. I mean you're only in your early 40's but you look like you're pushing 70! Cocaine's a helluva drug! Or is it crank?

I must say its so sad its come to this so many people to feel bad for and all for what greed.I worked there ten great happy years only to be shown the door only because i wouldn't kiss MS R G H ass.I saw many others help build Groth Bro's into something great powerful something to be proud of if u ask me .Dick Groth sr was the best man i ever worked for u worked hard he paid great buissness was bomming poeple were happy. I hope when its said and done Dick doesn't lose everything and to Rick Groth i would say listin to your wife when it comes to your sister make sure she doesn't lose your ranch before its to late.Think i'm wrong just try and find all the cash shes gone thought millions by now i would bet .The great thing about your dad was he would make money before spending it old school for sure .I would say to Robin what comes around goes around its your turn next lifes abitch get use to it.All the people you screwed over time to pay for those sins and its a tall bill as i see it.And stop looking at Dick like hes a check book hes a better man than that don't let him down.Good luck with your BK something tells me you'll do great at it .

I drove the dealership yesterday for the first time in a few months. I only saw 1 or 2 cars on the used car lot. I think they have more BBQ trailers then cars on the lot.
