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 schedule is full time, approximately 40 hours per week, five days a week. You will work four weekdays (12pm to 8pm), plus most Sundays (12pm to 4pm, these hours are paid at time-and-a-half). You'll get one weekday and every Saturday off.

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. The current opening occurred because we're expanding.

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 six technicians, so we encourage everyone to apply, including women and others traditionally excluded from auto industry opportunities. Please email your resume with a brief note about your interest in the position to Dale Lathrop at dale@planetsubaru.com. We will respond to qualified applicants with a detailed list of FAQ's. Thank you for your interest in Planet Subaru!


PURCHASE PARTNER SALESPERSON

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. Income is reliable and combines hourly compensation with a competitive commission and bonus structure. Income for salespeople ranges from $60,000-$100,000 (or more) per year and we maintain a much smaller sales team compared to typical dealerships, so there's plenty of opportunity for everyone. 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.

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.

WOMEN AND OTHERS TRADITIONALLY LEFT OUT OF THE CAR BUSINESS URGED TO APPLY

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 twenty-two 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 SIX technicians! Eleven 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 and tropical fish salesperson, fitness instructor, art gallery owner, investment professional, and a recent college grad.

SERVICE ADVISOR

DESCRIPTION

As a service advisor at Planet Subaru, you are the key point of contact for customers bringing a car in for service. You will greet them, write up the repair order, and recommend services. You will stay in touch with them through the day to let them know about the progress and also to request permission to do any additional work that the technician discovers. The day is busy and moves quickly. The two most important qualities to have are friendliness and organizational skills. For example, if the car takes longer to complete than originally predicted, most customers are okay with that as long as you're nice about it and you call ahead of time so they don't show up and find out that they have to sit around and wait. You need to be able to deal with the occasional grumpy customer who isn't polite or reasonable. We have four service advisors, and the official title is "Assistant Service Manager" because we give you authority to resolve many circumstances on your own.
