Join our special team!



Demand for Subaru vehicles and maintenance continues to grow so we're looking for you!

Evening Customer Service Representative

DESCRIPTION

As one of Planet's receptionists in the service department, you will greet customers who need their vehicles serviced, help them get checked in, answer phones and set up appointments, provide loaner cars to customers (including driving cars around the lot), and pitch in, as needed, to keep the service department running smoothly. You will spend a lot of time working with customers on the phone and in person, and you will collaborate with most of the Planet service team. You'll be on your feet a lot, so you won't get bored and you won't be stuck at a desk all day!

SCHEDULE

The schedule is full time, approximately 40 hours per week, five days a week. You will work three weekdays 12-8, plus every Friday and Saturday 8-5. You'll have every Sunday and a weekday off.

EXPERIENCE

Prior automotive or rental agency experience is not required but is helpful. The more you know about dealerships and vehicles, and the more passion you have for them, the less training you will require. But we will train the right person.

THE RIGHT PERSON

The ideal candidate likes cars, is eager to learn new things, likes to be busy, has an upbeat attitude about life, can handle the occasional grumpy customer, enjoys the pleasure of delighting customers, is smart, professional, and polished. We are looking for those who see a career in our business, not just a job until something else comes along. You need a reasonable driving record because you will be driving company and customer vehicles around the lot, and occasionally on the roads. If you like providing good customer service, you'll enjoy this job a lot. It's more fun than being stuck at a desk all day!

GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES

Because we promote almost exclusively from within, this position is the first place we look when we have an opening in the service department with more income and responsibility. Most of our current team, including our service manager, started in a similar and grew along with us. The current opening occurred because we're expanding.

ABOUT THE DEALERSHIP

The car business doesn't have a great reputation, but before you think you know what kind of people we are, read on. We are unlike any other dealership in this business. We are the "undealership," the alternative to the tricks and games found at other stores. To learn more about our philosophy, visit: http://www.planetsubaru.com/top-reasons.htm. We have a diverse team of professionals, including many women. We have minimal turnover compared to the industry average, and the longevity of our team members says a lot about the quality of life here.

A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Selected from over 20,000 nationwide, Planet was twice named to the Automotive News Top 100 Best Dealerships to Work For. And the Boston Globe selected Planet Subaru three times from thousands of local companies as a Top Place to Work.

WOMEN AND OTHERS TRADITIONALLY LEFT OUT OF THE CAR BUSINESS URGED TO APPLY

Ten are moms, too. We have a diverse team. Former backgrounds of our Sales Guides include: Enterprise Rental Car Branch Manager, Hollywood movie director (no kidding!), cell phone salesperson, fitness instructor, art gallery owner, investment professional, and a recent college grad.

Service Advisor

DESCRIPTION

As a service advisor at Planet Subaru, you are the key point of contact for customers bringing a car in for service. You will greet them, write up the repair order, and recommend services. You will stay in touch with them through the day to let them know about the progress and also to request permission to do any additional work that the technician discovers. The day is busy and moves quickly. The two most important qualities to have are friendliness and organizational skills. For example, if the car takes longer to complete than originally predicted, most customers are okay with that as long as you're nice about it and you call ahead of time so they don't show up and find out that they have to sit around and wait. You need to be able to deal with the occasional grumpy customer who isn't polite or reasonable. We have four service advisors, and the official title is "Assistant Service Manager" because we give you authority to resolve many circumstances on your own.

WHY PLANET?

Planet is great place to work, and you don't have to take our word for it. Selected from over 20,000 nationwide, Planet was named to the Automotive News "Top 100 Best Dealerships to Work For" twice. And the Boston Globe also three times selected Planet from thousands of companies in all industries for its list of "Top Places To Work" ranking.
