Automotive Sales Associates - New and Preowned Vehicles

Premier Kia is seeking women and men, with or without resume for sales associates positions.

Regarding sales associates, we're looking for individuals who understand that price cannot be the only value differentiator about a car. The relationship you build with your customers helps us build a brand not by being known for our prices, but for the overall way in which we conduct ourselves.

The over-riding decision making philosophy is to always do the right thing. You need the ability to build relationships, as well as to motivate people. Get to know your customers, and let them know you. Embrace and utilize the benefits of a big company, while providing the touch of a small company.

Previous experience in automotive sales is a plus, but we're just as interested in people who are willing to work hard with those attributes detailed below. If you have the right gears, you can be successful with our team. We have had many successful sales associates come from the hospitality industry and customer relations business. If you like people and connecting them to a great car buying experience, you might be a fit.

The position includes a salary, commission and a monthly bonus.   Premier Kia provides extensive training, both initial to get you up to speed, as well as ongoing training to develop your abilities and skills. We provide a full benefits package to full time associates, including full medical, dental, and vision insurance, matching 401 k contributions, and paid holiday vacations and much more.

Desired Skills and Experience

What do we look for? Premier Kia is eager to talk with people who are enthusiastic, trustworthy, and friendly, with a high-energy motor who enjoy working directly with customers to help solve their needs. You need strong organizational skills and good follow through on details. You have to be comfortable working and talking with a wide range of customer styles, and have a firm grasp on the benefits of both the vehicles and the dealership. You need to be attentive and a good listener. You must understand how to dress and present yourself as a professional, and represent Premier Kia in a manner that builds respect and trust. Your own personal drive and initiative to learn about the product is essential, and your goals should be one of top achievement. The product is excellent, and Premier Kia is a great place to work.
