Sales Guides at Planet Subaru sell cars, but we are unlike any other salespeople in this business. We are the "undealership," the alternative to the tricks and games found at other stores. We intentionally draw our salespeople from outside the car business so we can teach you our unique and ethical way of selling cars. To learn more about our process, visit:

Upon opening in 1998, Planet Subaru made a commitment to increase the number of opportunities for women interested in a career in the car business. Nationwide, women represent only a small fraction of the auto retail workforce, but Planet's seventeen women comprise over 30% of the team--with five managers, six women in sales, and many in the service department including the service manager, the majority of our advisors, even three technicians! Nine 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, art gallery owner, investment professional, and a recent college grad. We have barely any turnover, and the longevity of our team members says a lot about the quality of life here.

We are looking for someone who sees a career in our family business--not just a job until something else comes along. Someone who believes in our mission to be friendly to our customers and the environment (from our solar-powered showroom to goatscaping); Someone who has dedication, determination, and can hang with the dogs. (Literally, have you met our canine greeter Blue?)

Sales experience is not required; we provide training. Bachelor's degree is preferred but not required if you have a successful work history.

Please send your resume WITH A NOTE OR COVER LETTER about your interest in Planet to General Manager Dale Lathrop at We will reply to qualified applicants with answers to frequently asked questions about the opportunity.

Service Receptionist--afternoon and evening


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. In addition to interacting with people all day, there is also filing and data entry.


The schedule is full time, approximately 40 hours per week, Monday through Thursday 12pm to 8pm and Saturday 8am to 4pm. You'll have Friday off, and also every Sunday off. If necessary, we can tweak this schedule somewhat to accommodate your needs.


Prior automotive 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 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 a secretary stuck at a desk all day!


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 this position and grew along with us. The current opening occurred because of a promotion.

Please send your resume WITH A NOTE OR COVER LETTER about your interest in Planet to General Manager Dale Lathrop at We will reply to qualified applicants with answers to frequently asked questions about the opportunity.

Technicians at all level of experience

Planet Subaru is seeking technicians because we're growing like crazy.

The work week is five days per week, 40 hours per week, including most Saturdays. Benefits include health insurance, paid vacation, and partial 401K matching. We have a beautiful facility with an air-conditioned shop.

Planet Subaru has many women on its sales and service teams, including our service manager, shop manager, and three of our technicians, so we encourage women to apply.

Please email your resume with a brief note about your interest in the position to Service Director Matt Ryan:

Future Openings
The Planet stores have very low turnover so we rarely have many openings.  We do add positions as we grow, however, and typically work off a waiting list, so if you would like to be considered for a future opening at Planet Subaru in Hanover or Planet Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Franklin, please send your resume to General Manager Dale Lathrop
with a brief note about the position you would be interested in.  We will contact you when we have an opening.  We endeavor to include team members people who have traditionally been excluded from the opportunities in this industry including women, minorities, and veterans. 


Planet offers automotive dealership employment and great jobs that you'll love on the South Shore, Boston, and most of eastern Massachusetts.
