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 typical schedule is full time, approximately 40 hours over five days a week, with four weekdays 12-8 and one weekend day (Saturday 9-5 or Sunday 12-4). We can modify the schedule somewhat to fit your schedule, but during the week the hours need to later rather than earlier.

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.

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 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 to Work For. And the Boston Globe selected Planet Subaru four times from thousands of local companies as a Top Place to Work.

LOCATION

Planet Subaru is located in Hanover, approximately 20 minutes southeast of Boston.

TO APPLY

Planet Subaru has many women on its sales and service teams, including our service manager, the majority of our service advisors, and even seven technicians, so we encourage everyone to apply, including women and minorities who have traditionally been excluded from auto industry opportunities. Please email your resume with a brief note about your interest in the position to Service Director Matt Ryan at matthew@planetsubaru.com. We will respond to qualified applicants with a detailed list of FAQ's. Thank you for your interest in Planet Subaru!

Future Openings

 with a brief note about the position you would be interested in.
