Being a car salesman isn’t just about selling a product to the customer, it’s an art and a science. Personality, appearance, authenticity, and your ability to persuade all play a part in working in a car dealership. Many people walk into a dealership and already have a negative perception of car salesmen, and so your job is to change that image into something positive for the customer. You want to show them that you know what you’re talking about and you want to get them the best deal possible. So, it’s important to know a few key things about how to interact with your customers and how to, at the end of the conversation, have your customer satisfied with their experience and eager to purchase a car from you.
Your reviews will be thoroughly read by one of our representatives, who will create professional responses to each and every review. Should a negative review mention a specific issue with the dealership, we will direct that person to our point of contact at your dealership. The goal is to quickly resolve negative feedback to prevent more negative comments. Many times, these customers will come back and edit their negative reviews to reflect a positive outcome once the issue has been resolved.

Car salespeople typically don’t need prior experience or advanced education. Most of the work is learned on the job and dealers don’t always like to hire sales associates who have developed bad habits at other dealerships. At the same time, prior experience could give you an edge in the job market if you also bring a list of loyal customers on whom you can call to your new post. You’ll need to have at least a high school diploma, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and many dealerships prefer some college. The job requires extensive reading to learn the key features and benefits of the automobiles.
A quick aside to demonstrate the point. Companies in many industries seem to trade ad agencies like Topps baseball cards, with one firing one agency and another manufacturer picking up that agency to do its work. What develops is a kind of incestuous environment in which the players in the industry have all worked with the same agency at various times, believing that industry experience will steal them share.
So here we are in the first week of 2017. It’s a new year and I’m betting a lot of people are planning on buying a new (or used) car sometime in the coming year.
