Attention all car salesmen !
Good day there fellas !
I'm currently working for Mitsubishi Motors in SA and have been for the last two years. I work in the Bodyweld Shop and mainly spotweld wheelhouses, rearquarters & taillights together.
The reason why I made this thread is mainly because I'm sick of doing production work and I'm looking into becoming a car salesman.
I've had some good discussions with my old man, who is a used-car salesmanager and used to be a salesman, and he supplied me with some very good information about the trade.
But, I'd like to know from all of you salesmen out there how you are enjoying your job, how you've got into being a car salesman and ofcourse what you think are the ups & downs of the trade.
I'd like to hear especially from young salesmen who only just made the big step to become a salesmen.
Just for information purposes only ofcourse.
I'm going to visit some guys I know who are salesmen as well to see what they have to say.
My dad is going to try and get me an interview with Jarvis Ford and he told me that they have a very good system of educating people, especially people who have never been a salesperson before. So at the moment I am very stoked.
I'd be very interested in what you guys have to say, so please don't hold back.
Anyways, I thank you all in advance and keep selling those cars !
P.S. Sorry for the long post.
