Our Dealership opened at 7am closed at 6pm.We were busy from arriving in the morning until leaving at night. Job was very fulfilling and no day was the same. We faced different challenges daily and therefore grew in knowledge and character. I started as an apprentice technician to foreman to service advisor then service Manager and Parts Manager. Enjoyed working with people. JobJand and

Great company and staff, product is amazing. Commission structure needs to be addressed and the after sales department need a serious wake up call. A typical day at the office is cold calling and canvasing for business, keeping a relationship with your existing and past customers.
Prepping your sale for delivery and making sure your paperwork is in order and compliant.

When i was a manager i had to keep my staff motivated, keep the stock mix right to maintain targets an budgets, maintain a high level of service and quality product to minimize any comebacks. Advertising and internet marketing is our biggest form of advertising and that was one of my key rolls.

Work extended working hours to ensure daily targets are met. Work gets done in an accurate manner ,and I am professional at all times, due to dealing with sales managers, sales executives, and potential buyers- prompt communication and feedback is of utmost importance to secure current and repeat business . I am positive and enjoy to interact with clients and colleagues. I am very organized , that makes it easier to manage work load . It is important to be flexible when dealing with clients, be honest and always be professional

Everyone please stand on one side of the line, opposite another person. (Allow for participants to take their places.) You have 15 seconds to convince the person opposite you, without force, to cross the line. Begin. (Announce that time is up after about 15 seconds.)

My typical day at work I would like to think of what can I do to better my Employer in part of my contribution to them. I have learned to do the job to the best of my abilities will be to my advantage. I have always get along with management, as well as co-workers. The hardest part of a new job is to get used to a new system but every bit of experience I accomplish till know always helped me to pull it through. The most enjoyable part should be to work as a team.
Pros
Long service rewards

I have enjoyed working at Imperial Ford Kempton park as a sales executing and also second in charge to my used car manager. All the staff members we very helpful.
Being in the sales environment it is very challenging as I had to actively attract clients through the social media, advertise cars on the website, assist my manager with her duties.

The hardest part is if we don't have stock or leads to work on and the enjoyable part is seeing the joy that you bring to clients by selling them good cars and making sure I give them the best service possible. I had a lot of references through that.
Pros
having braai on fridays
Cons
working weekends and long hours

The workshop manager could use a crash course in how to treat the people working "for" him. Working conditions were terribly unpleasant, to say the least.
