Automobile Sales Workers

Employment Prospects


The U.S. Department of Labor reports that there are approximately 4.6 million retail sales workers employed in the United States, of which 6 percent are motor vehicle dealers. Franchised automobile dealerships employ the majority of automobile sales workers in the United States. A franchised automobile dealer is a dealer that is formally recognized and authorized by the manufacturer to sell its vehicles. A small number of sales workers are employed by used car dealerships that are strictly independent and not recognized by any manufacturer. Automotive superstores need automobile sales workers as well, although some may argue that these workers aren't truly automobile sales specialists because they tend to have less training and experience in the automotive area.
