What could go wrong?
You may not need the experience to get the job but you definitely need training to keep it.
Unfortunately there is not much of an on-boarding and and official training process available for new hires. You may be provided with access to manufacturer's online training programs if you are working at a new car franchise. These programs mainly focus on the product knowledge but they also include some sales skills training. How the manufacturers think their cars are being sold may also be a little different than the reality on the sales floor so their sales training may not work.
Car dealerships will expect you to learn the ins and outs of car sales on the job. On-the-job training means you learning from other car salespeople who may or may not have your best interest. Many car sales people are genuinely nice people. They will be happy to show you the ropes and help you survive as long as you are nice and appreciative. But without a fundamental understanding of the process, basic foundation and core skills you will struggle. It will take you longer to learn and master your job. You will also learn to do things the wrong way and pick up bad habits along the way. You may either end up being an average car salesperson who is barely making it or quit within a few months.
You get in to car sales to sell cars, make money and have fun. You can't stay in it unless you are selling cars, making money and having fun. Your positive attitude, likable personality, enthusiasm, and desire to make a lot of money will only take you so far.
