@ the job

As a car dealer you will be doing 1 or more of three things. The first thing as a car dealer you will be doing is going to any automobile auction with a given amount of money and start bidding on certain cars you need. The second thing as a car dealer is taking all the new incoming cars to safety checks at any maintenance shop if your dealership doesn't have one already. The third part is actually selling the cars to customers who are interested in a car. You and that customer will be negotiating a price to find a compromise.
