Automobile Saleperson Sep 2015Apr 2016 Modern Auto Co Washington, MO

Started the middle of September of 2015. I was hired as Automobile Salesperson. Sales started out fine for the fall selling season but traffic went down considerably during the last part of November and did not see an up turn until March of 2016. February was tough as usual in the Auto business. End of March thru most of April, traffic was extremely slow. After hitting what is supposed to be the spring selling season and seeing no increase in traffic, I decided to part ways.

Internet Sales and Vehicle Sales Nov 2014Aug 2015 Straatmann Toyota Washington, MO Started working for Straatmann Toyota in November of 2014. They were building a new building and I approached them for a job in Management. Their proposal was for me to do Internet Sales until we moved into the new building. After moving into new building then other opportunities would open up. I accepted position an Sales person rate of pay,With no traffic and one salesperson who was guaranteed first and every customer on lot I did not get an customer to wait on until January.  Since then and even going through a physical move to another building I averaged 14 sales per month. Hoping things would change after moving into new building, they didn't. No new opportunities in Management would open up. We did get more traffic but not very much more and they hired additional sales people with further diluted traffic. With no attempt to modify pay plan and pressure to only live on Toyota leads we parted company.
