· Veterans and active-duty military service members serve country and customers;

· Team members join us from varied ethnic and racial backgrounds;

· We hire people of all ages;

· We've promoted Pride since the day we opened in 1998.

SUBARU SALESPERSON

Job Description

Planet Subaru offers you a unique opportunity to make the world a better place, one car sale at a time. Not just that, but in a positive and team-oriented environment. We offer extensive training and look for candidates WITHOUT any experience in car sales, so we can provide a pleasantly different and enjoyable experience for our customers.

The work is interesting, fast-paced and rewards initiative and problem solving. Our team typically looks at their roles as their career and we almost universally promote from within. We have barely any turnover, and the longevity of our team members says a lot about the quality of life here.

SCHEDULE

The flexible schedule is just a little more than 40 hours per week, which is many fewer than the typical dealership. You'll work just five days per week, with every Sunday off, plus the same weekday off. You'll work most Saturdays because that's our busiest day.

OUR CURRENT TEAM

Former backgrounds of our Sales Guides include: Enterprise Rental Car Branch Manager, Hollywood movie director (no kidding!), cell phone and tropical fish salesperson, fitness instructor, art gallery owner, investment professional, and a recent college grad.

APPRENTICE AUTO TECHNICIAN

Are you looking for a career and a home instead of just another job? Planet Subaru is seeking someone good with their hands who would like to get a start in a lucrative field with lots of growth opportunity. We will help you learn the skills necessary to complete light maintenance and repairs on vehicles, including oil changes and tire rotations.

No automotive repair experience is necessary, but you need an aptitude for doing mechanical things. Any vocational/technical school or shop experience is helpful but not required. We will train you if you're smart and eager to learn.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who doesn't want to work at low-wage job year after year. We will help you develop into a master technician through the years. It's also great for someone at a tire shop, small garage, or oil change facility who wants to move up to a franchised dealership.

The work week is four, ten-hour shifts, so you get three days off per week. You can work a fifth day and get overtime if you like. Your schedule will include many Saturdays, and the shop is closed Sundays. Benefits include health insurance, paid vacation, and partial 401K matching.

SERVICE DEPARTMENT SPECIALIST

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 typical schedule is full time, approximately 40 hours over five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday 8-5, off Sunday and Monday. We can modify the schedule somewhat to fit your schedule.

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 friendly, 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.

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 position and grew along with us.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who doesn't want to work at low-wage job year after year. No parts experience is necessary, and we will train you if you're smart and eager to learn.

Our team members look at their roles as their career, and we almost universally promote from within. We have barely any turnover, and the longevity of our team members says a lot about the quality of life here. Two of the four members of our parts team have been with us over twenty years! To learn about our current team members and their tenure, visit http://planetsubaru.com/dealership/staff.htm

The schedule is Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm.

If you like cars, it's a lot of fun because you're around cool cars and lots of gear heads all day. We have a beautiful heated and air-conditioned facility.

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.
