Yeah, what was funnier is going to her house and seeing her dad. A little akward at first, switching from the salesman mode to "I'm dating your daughter mode"

Isn't that carrying the concept of "Service After the Sale" a bit far??

She's the one that contacted me, and started flirting with me. Trying to hook up with customers is usually not my thing. But it happens in the business every once in a while.

I guess nobody has a problem finding a quality salesperson anymore.

That's because they all read "Stories From the Frontlines".... which if you read through all the posts that you can pretty much put together what makes a good quality salesman.
If any of the stores that they work at were near me and I was in the market for the brand they sell, I would probably go to their stores over another. Most of the salesman that post over there I would presume have a lot of the things that make up a "quality" salesman.
Of course they are still salesman and still need to make a living so I would expect that they would still do their job and make as much money as possible in each sale
#150 of 171 Advice needed from the sales people
Aug 13, 2007 (7:57 am)
How can I choose my sales person? All too often when I visit a dealership, I am approached immediately by someone, and it may be someone I don't appreciate doing business with. Then I'm stuck with whoever approached me first. How can I choose who will receive that commission? Since I am the customer, how can I choose who to do business with? Is that possible? I don't really have friends who bought the brand of car I want to ask for a referral.
I don't like overbearing pushy sales people - the kind you think about from years past. Unfortunately, in my town, they still exist and sometimes their supervisors are even worse than the sales rep, so speaking to one of those supervisors can be unpleasant. What's unfortunate is the largest dealership with the largest selection of cars I want to buy still uses some of those old school tactics. I dread walking in there. Even making a phone call can be unpleasant and a long drawn out process, when all I have is one simple question to be ansered. For the model I want to buy, do you have any 2008 vehicles yet? A simple yes or no was all that I was looking for. No wonder people prefer to deal over the internet!
But back to the real question, how can I choose the sales person I'd like to work with?

Imo, I think this is one of the most important parts of your car purchase. Most of the complaints about sales are not the cars.....it's the people! So wouldn't you want to test drive your salesman as well?
Here's my advice. Call into the dealership. Have a conversation with one of the salesguys and let them know what you're looking to purchase. You should be able to read a lot about those folks from that phone call. Are they kind? Patient? Knowledgeable?
If you simply walk into the showroom, you run the risk of talking to someone you may not like or want to work with.
