Need Help/Advice...

Recommended Posts

A few of my summer job alternatives have recently fallen through, so I'm back to exploring my options. Coincidentally, I'm looking to pursue a job similar to what Northie posted earlier this week. I'm extremely interested in detailing or "prepping" new or pre-owned cars at a local dealership (or another dealership-related job, for that matter), I'm just not entirely sure how I should pursue this.

I haven't found anything in the paper advertising such a position, and I'm not sure if dealerships would be interested in hiring a 17-year-old. I'd like to contact a few local dealerships, but I'm not sure exactly what I should say.

What positions would a dealership likely be interested in hiring a younger person for? Does such a job seem feasible for someone my age? I've worked for a catering company for two years, but don't really have any dealership-related experience. I do, however, have a full license.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

When I bought the G6, there was a younger kid (not sure how young) that they used to go on the first drive with us to "explain" the features (I let him go on with his speach eventhough I probably knew more about the car than he did) - he was pretty much the gopher - he took plates on/off cars, did the test drives, probably other odds and ends around the dealership, but I have no idea if he was 17 or over...

I think as Croc said you have to be 18, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

One job the dealership I might work for was hiring people for was follow-up service calls - basicalyl checking in on how the service went and making sure the costumer was satisfied. I didn't really want to do that though.
