From Automotive Retailing Today...

Are you motivated and highly competitive? Do you have good communication and interpersonal skills? Do you love cars? If the answer is "yes" then the sales department just might be the place for you!

Automotive sales team members are organized self-starters who can stick to a tough daily routine that includes prospecting for new customers by telephone, mail and personal contact.

Consumers spend millions of dollars every day on retail merchandise transactions. And because consumers quickly form their impressions by the way they are treated, auto dealers stress the importance of providing courteous and efficient service. Providing high-quality customer service is a must in auto retailing and dealers strive to meet consumer expectations.

Auto salespeople are the front-line professionals who represent the dealership, as well as the manufacturers. If you have sales experience, even if it is not with cars, there are opportunities available. Automotive sales is a dynamic field that can offer advancement.
