Description

ABOUT US

Sierra Auto Fair is a privately operated business that operates this community event as a fund-raiser for the Sierra College Foundation every weekend since 1997, rain or shine. This is a retail-type position as event staff for an exciting ongoing weekend business where the general public can pay a flat fee to display their cars, boats, RV's & motorcycles for sale.  We are an event operations company, and this position is more about serving and interacting with people than it is about cars. We are not a car dealership or consignment lot, do not conduct test-drives, and do not have salespeople or in any way sell the vehicles! It entails mostly outdoor work in the Sierra College parking lot and a small office every weekend, with a lot of walking and a large variation in duties. 


We are a small team that takes care of each other and takes pride in taking care of our customers and their vehicles. We work hard and we have fun doing the right thing with excellence, and we pay high wages for high expectations. You will learn a lot about people and business working here, including how a business that values integrity operates.

JOB DESCRIPTION ***YEAR ROUND ONGOING!***

As a staff member, you will perform a constant variety of activities, including:

·        Act as customer service agent for vehicle sellers dropping-off and picking-up their vehicles.

·        Set-up and take down the equipment used for the business (Signs, traffic flow devices, etc.) This does require some lifting.

·        Work on the lot as a parking attendant during vehicle arrival.

·        Open vehicles for buyers and monitor their inspections of the “for sale by owner” vehicles displayed at the event.

·        Maintain the premises inside and out and complete task checklists along with the rest of the staff.

·        Monitor, observe, and report activity on the lot on foot and via bicycle to help ensure vehicles remain safe.

·        Learn and consistently utilize instructed sales techniques to help people who inquire about selling their vehicles understand why the Auto Fair is the fastest, easiest, safest, & superior way to sell their Auto, Boat, RV, or Cycle.

·        Find gratification in an optimal customer experience! We don’t stop short of excellence here!
