    Pros

    This is a company that believes in your professionak and personal development. There is a lot of opportunity for growth if you are willing to move to different areas of the country. Since it is in online company there is a lot of mobility and flexibility. there is good opportunity for income but it's important to realize there are a finite number of car dealers, so some of the potential involves enhancing a dealer's product portfolio. The best way to do that is to be a consultant to the dealer and not just a salesman. That way you will be able to identify areas of need and find solutions to fill those needs.

    Cons

    if you are not self motivated or willing to move to new areas, or to develop your communication and research snd analysis skills this may not be a good place for you. those who do best here are those who don't have to be told what to do once you learn how to do it, but just get out there and get it done, regardless of what needs done. You got to run it like its your own business, because there is a lot of Independence here and if you don't get the work done then you won't get the income that follows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    even there there is a very good career path and planning process in place, it would be great if you could let the employees know a little bit more about the different positions that are available when they open so that they know whether or not they would want to move toward them.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Cars.com.

    Interview Details

    Starts as always with HR, then hiring manager, then hiring managers manager. Questions are pretty generic and really want to know about your background. They really want hunter mentality big time so present that as much as possible. Know the "challenger sales" method as it is their primary sales training/technique
