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.
