Hi

Im thinking of new job....car salesman . Not a used car dealers but major company from Japan.

Basic payment is low but commission pay is high.

My knowledge about cars is okay.

Just need to know what are good & bad , high & low in this job. What special skill should I have?

Thank you


Honesty is the best policy. Remember this. Say what you mean and mean what you say...

The problem is honesty in car sales might get you fired...

I understand that some car sales offices have to clear full payment before getting the car delivered from factories/principles.
Imagine those car sales dealers are having some cash flow issue and couldn't pay on time, Do you think the boss would allow the salesmen to tell their buyers that they will not get their cars on time?

my answer is all the above factors.

imagine this ---> sell 4 camrys a month, earn 10K commision. but its not easy to sell a RM150K car mind you. the challenge is high including competition from salesman of the same brand and other brands.

I am not car salesman but as a customer what i need is:-

1. To be entertainned immediately step in to the showroom and be helpful
2. Allow the customer freely and slowly examining the car.
3. Only come forward when i need one.
4. Explain all true facts.. cause most of the buyer now with little knowledge before picking their goods.
5. Don't look down your prospect by judging their apperience...
6. Knowing the product well and after sales too
7. Be responsibile..

Wow! like job interview...

But 1 & 2, contradict each other. You want to be entertain and yet you want slowly examine the car. As you know once the salesman follow you around, he will be trying to sell the car to you....... smile_tongue.gif
