A Day in the Life of a Sales Advisor

That’s Nice, But What’s the Job?

In short, as a Sales Advisor you can expect to walk into a fun environment built on open, friendly relationships.

 

In Long, you'll spend half your time interacting with customers in person, making them feel comfortable, working out financing options and collaborating with co-workers.

The other half will be on the phone, scheduling appointments, answering questions and educating qualified leads about their options.

While your ultimate responsibility is to sell cars, you'll find that you accomplish this goal by building relationships and providing outstanding customer service.

 

So What Kind of Folks Are We Looking for?

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills. The ability to talk and write with confidence, charisma and competence for a wide variety of audiences including management.
  • Agile in a fast-past environment. We move, and we move quickly. Thriving in an environment that never stops, is a must.
  • Plays well with others. You will be working in a high-functioning team environment.  We work together in order to win together.
  • Timely. We don’t believe in being “fashionably late”.  You’ll need to adhere to regular and predictable attendance.
  • Self-driven yet selfless. We need someone capable of managing their own time and business, yet is capable of making decisions for the betterment of DriveTime, not just themselves.
  • Passionate and goal-oriented. We are looking for someone that is enthusiastic about their work and is passionate about not only meeting their goals but exceeding them.
  • Takes a hold of the wheel.  You’ll need to take the initiative and be comfortable doing so.
  • Management material. We are looking for someone that can lead, manage and grow within our organization.

This is the most collaborative and fluid environment I’ve ever worked in. DriveTime is always evolving its applications and systems which gives me an opportunity to evolve with it. I like that every day is different and that our leadership has my back and listens to what I have to say. I go home knowing that I’ve accomplished great things and that what I do makes a difference. I get to be part of a huge family that knows how to have a blast and get things done.

When I’m not working I am either in the studio writing and recording music or studying Japanese. Music is where I get to celebrate my love for videogames, languages, and pop culture all at once. Being on stage is exhilarating and it’s fun to connect with people who appreciate my work. I’ve toured around the country and have also recorded television/radio ad spots for McDonalds.
