Where are you now?

  • Stuck in the retail rut? You might be doing some great sales but why stretch if it only means being promoted to a store manager – MUCH more responsibility but unfortunately only a little more money and often even less support from above.
  • Bored, need a more intellectual challenge? Are you starting to wish you had done engineering instead of that Arts degree? Or had enough of being on the tools? You want something with some technical substance.
  • You are over selling white goods or hum-drum consumer products and seeing your good efforts smashed by desperation sales,

If any of these is you and you’re still loving the consumer interaction, then read on to find out how joining Mackay City Auto Group starting with Premium Used Cars could be the most important career move you will ever make.


Why join the automotive industry?

A product set with a genuinely international footprint. Want to go on a working holiday anywhere in the English-speaking world without interrupting your cash flow? Selling any high-value product is a skill that can take your career anywhere around the world. But the international automotive industry takes it one step further with re-badged products that you can you sell equally successfully without any local knowledge.

One of those rare industries that give you incredible earnings potential directly proportional to your skill and effort.


Why used cars?

More variety with every conversation. With literally hundreds of different cars, types, brands, makes etc, in stock over the year you never know who will come in, what they will need and which cars you will be discussing. That makes the working day way more varied and challenging.

Develops better selling skills. You’re not just a walking brochure repeating the same product pitch day in day out. Instead, to be successful you will learn to engage buyers in a detailed conversation about their driving needs, budget and personal preferences so that you can accurately identify a variety of cars that will suit them. Then present the cars in a way that gives people the confidence to make a choice they will be happy with for years to come.

This sort of variety will allow you to develop your skills faster and extending your bank account quickly and giving you more career options for many years. Better selling skills, results in faster progression to team leader, to sales manager and beyond. With this sort of skills focus it is not surprising that most Dealer Principals started in used cars.
