Sales Consultant in Saint John, NB
Amazing Overall Culture
Dobson is a great place to work if you enjoy working with people, and thrive where others in a supposedly "cut throat" business are your biggest cheerleaders.
The Sales team is absolutely incredible, overall positive attitude, and always willing to lend a hand in your absence (without strapping on skates!).
The Management team is as invested in your success as you are (granted they cannot do it for you!). Performance is rewarded with leads (internet etc).
The car sales world has changed dramatically over the last few years, and the 'old school' ways don't work as they once did - thus it IS harder to make a living. Would be a great opportunity for some millennial with a fresh outlook to make some really great money.

very unorganized place to work
Unless your part of the family or have been working there for a very very long time you are no one. I was due for my bouns and benifits and they out it off long as they could then laid me off so in other words they are shady and sneeky

productive busy days take the good with the bad
Arrive at 8am find out were you are on duty list to watch the show room floor everyone does an hour at a time unless has a client, then moves on to the next consultant on the duty list. Keep up on previous client needs and wants, scheduling appointments. Taking new interested clients out for test drives and present all performance features in a vehicle that suits their needs and wants. Preparing any new sales for delivery making sure they are registered, licensed, clean and had any accessories added such as mud flaps, vent shades, etc. Computer test training on product knowledge and keep up to date on any changes on product or any problems with product. Hardest part of the job was dealing with some of the up and down that come with the business. Not knowing what your paycheck could be week to week is stressful, don't get me wrong it was great making $1500 a week sometimes but the two weeks of not selling and making $150 a week is tough on the mental. Dealing with management overall was just ok, there were defiantly favorites and I was not one of them. I was blattened favoritism to guys that have been there for 5 to 6 years that over that time learned how to stroke the management team just they way they needed to, to receive email leads, house deals, or any other leads the management had but could not handle on their own. In the end I love selling cars, I loved making peoples buying experience a positive non stressful ordeal. My motto was buying a new car should be a happy experience not a stressed one,. one where you feel pressured by a salesman. At the end of the day I knew when my customers were happy. I could see the smiles on their face when they left and it was usually still there when they returned., and they always asked for me by name when they came back in for any reason. Most with a coffee in hand for me or a card and a box of chocolates near Christmas. the customers were my favorite part of the job.
