SALES CONSULTANT

Sales is a very important role of any dealership. Salespeople are essentially brand ambassadors that know the vehicles inside and out and can help customers make an informed decision when choosing to purchase or lease a vehicle. In British Columbia today, Salespeople must obtain a Motor Vehicle Sales Authority of British Columbia license in order to work on the dealership floor and sell cars. Salespeople who apply themselves and build a customer base will earn a very rewarding income.

The Service Technician is the person that will carry out the maintenance and repairs on a customer’s vehicle. Gone are the days of the “dirty job” image of technicians. Today, they are a combination of diagnosticians, engineers, electricians and computer programmers, based on how quickly technology is changing. Many college programs in the automotive industry include apprenticeship programs that involve working and reporting to a seasoned Service Technician.
