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-pace 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.

The environment and the people. The open desk environment speaks volumes to the type of environment DriveTime creates. Open communication in any direction is encouraged and embraced. I think that plays a factor in the type of people that work here as well, very informal, approachable, and collectively try to make this a great place to work.

I am very active. I like to play a lot of team sports and I do so with a lot of the people I work with here. I play basketball, football, softball, kickball and any other activity I can take part in. I also like to travel when I get the chance. Whether it’s a wedding or a concert that gets me out of the state, I like to take those opportunities to explore new areas.
