What makes your undealership team so special?

Typical dealerships do not reflect the diverse communities they serve. At Planet, people traditionally excluded from the auto industry represent the majority of our team. We develop elite professionals recruited from the broadest cross-section of society. On our Planet:


· Women, including several managers, excel in all departments;

· 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.


Would you like to join this inclusive team, and have fun in a business overflowing with opportunities? If you have your vaccinations and booster, we want you to apply!





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. To learn about our current staff members and their tenure, visit http://planetsubaru.com/dealership/staff.htm

TO APPLY

Please e-mail your resume with a PROFESSIONAL COVER LETTER about your interest in the position to General Sales Manager Nate Roman via nate at planetsubaru.com.  We will reply to qualified applicants with answers to frequently asked questions about the opportunity. Thanks!


EXPERIENCED AUTO TECHNICIAN

Planet Subaru is seeking an experienced flat-rate automotive technician. We have lots of work!

Planet Subaru is a very special dealership. We have very low turnover and very high quality of life. We have won many "best workplace" awards. Selected from over 20,000 dealerships nationwide, Planet Subaru was named to the Automotive News Top 100 Best Dealerships to Work For twice. And the Boston Globe five times selected Planet Subaru from thousands of companies in all industries for its list of Top 100 Places To Work.

Benefits include health insurance, paid vacation, and partial 401K matching. We have a beautiful facility with an air-conditioned shop. We will pay you to attend classes to become a Subaru Master technician. We have a family atmosphere with professional, competent, friendly managers.

The work week is four days per week, 10 hours per day, including many Saturdays. You get Sunday and two weekdays off. If necessary, we can make schedule adjustments to serve your needs, for example if you wanted to work less than full time, or, if you wanted to work five days per week instead of four.

Planet Subaru has many women on its sales and service teams, and many women have served on our technical staff, so we encourage women to apply.

Franchised auto experience is preferred but not required. Subaru experience is not required...we will help you learn the product.

Compensation is flat-rate and amount is determined by experience/ability. We can also hire you if you have experience as a marine mechanic, boat mechanic, diesel mechanic, fleet mechanic, or inboard/outboard mechanic.

Please email your resume with a brief note about your interest in the position and the dealership to Managing Partner Dale Lathrop via dale at planetsubaru.com.

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. We have a beautiful facility with an air-conditioned shop.

SUBARU VEHICLE DELIVERY SPECIALIST

Planet Subaru offers you a unique opportunity to make the world a better place, one car delivery 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.

Your primary duty will be to assist our top salespeople by performing thorough and detailed vehicle deliveries, which typically happen on our lot. These involve making sure our customers understand how to use the vehicle they just purchased and can drive away with a problem-free car. (This is the closest job you'll find to an Apple Genius at a car dealership!) You will make sure the car is on track to be cleaned, properly accessorized, and full of gas, plus ensure that our customers reflect their extraordinary experience on the new vehicle survey they receive from Subaru of America. Other duties include greeting visitors, answering phone calls, introducing customers to our service department, and helping to keep the lot tidy and organized.

The Ideal Candidate

You enjoy helping other people, explaining the technology in vehicles (we provide you with training), appreciate staying busy and moving around, and are organized so you can follow through on your commitments. This is a great opportunity to join the Planet team at a entry level and grow along with us, since we promote almost entirely from within. This opening occurred because our current delivery specialist was promoted to sales.

SCHEDULE

This is a full-time position, 40 hours per week, with a mix of early-to-afternoon shifts and some evening shifts that start later during the week, plus most Saturdays 9-5. You'll be off every Sunday and one weekday per week.

AWARDS

Planet is a 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 five times selected Planet from thousands of companies in all industries for its list of "Top Places To Work" ranking.
