Autonation was a flat rate of $100 per car and more if you sold it with an extended warranty.
mini vary from dealership to dealership ...most BIG (not all BIG dealerships)pay you flat comm.
which means you sell a car ,new or used and you get a flat rate
usually between 100-225 per car
some of the better dealers ive worked at paid front and back and a small percent on acc with 250 mini
basically what that all means :
front side is actual profit on car ...minus the holdback
back is finacing
acc is accessories sold at time of purchase
if you are new ,try and get in with carmax to get used to selling , hours are good and you dont have to stress over high sales
highline is not always where the money is ......notelots and used lots with secondary finacing is where you need to be
if you find 15-17 front 2-5 back with 150.00 mini..jump on it
most dealerships nowadays will even give seasoned car salesmen signing bonuses
2000-5000 to go to their dealership ....you have to prove you can sell before they will give you a bonus like that though
