I am curious as to whether there are any service advisors that work for a main car dealer,here on this great site !

I may apply for a job with that position in mind , can anyone give me any tips or comments as to what the job entails ? Is it a difficult job , or could anyone do it ?

Sorry for sounding a little silly , but I really would like to know .......Please ?

Driving home last evening and heard the business info on Radio 2 which was discussing a newly set-up web site which compares salaries across a diversity of jobs/professions. In other words, find what other companies are paying for your area of work. It was felt that this site is quite innovative in its function.

I don't know whether info is provided about your particular quest, but try www.payfinder.com.

Helpful or what?

Its a very skilled job. There is a long training course to be completed.
It covers, but not all:
Use of phone system and how to put call on hold for ever then drop the call
Memory erasure. The promise to call when the car is ready, and completely forget.
The ability to hand over huge inflated bills without a whisper of a smile
The ability to make the word "sir" sound like an insult

Seriously,
There are training courses run by the major motor manufacurers for training service receptionists. Phone your major dealerships and ask about vacancies. If they have jobs they make like you and put you on a course.

Beware the job is carp (every motorists hates you) you are always handing out very bad news ( so they hate you even more)
and the money is not brilliant.

I don't know exactly, but I think you'd be doing well to get any more £11-12k. I seem to remember this figure when a friend worked as one for a while.

15k is about the mark in London/Southeast, thats what I saw for one job advert

I'm from the wilds of the North West, so that probably explains the difference.....

I would gues that receptionists in motor dealerships get similar pay to receptionists elsewhere. Why not check your local rag to see if there are any adverts for receptionsists which quote salaries.

Don't expect high pay, though....

I dont think I have ever, ever, been to a main dealer and not been told after a service or having work done that my brakes need changing as there is only about '1000' miles left on them. And every single time i checked them myself and found that they will last a good 5-10,000 miles.

It must be the biggest garage scam going to change brake pads/disks when they dont really need changing.

I sense they prey on people safety paranoia fears.
