We have a nice (small town) GM dealership … all product lines and a solid service department.the shiniest suits and most slicked back hair? Toothpick in the mouth is bonus points.
Went to a big volume dealer and tried to find the Jeep I wanted before any “King Cobra” spotted me … here comes the golf cart. Talked to him. Turned out I jumped in his golf cart and we went way around the main buildings … up a ramp and wow … here is a bunch more units including the one in my driveway …I think they have traded those suits for golf carts that you imply cannot get away from. you can stay in your car and they will block you in and one will get out and start talking to you through the window.
Yeah, unfortunately smaller brands are more susceptible to this since they are more likely to be owned by a local "big shot" or, if owned by a group, are on the back burner.Mazda! I applied for a sales job, and a person that follows up with customers after the salesperson. The guy looked like a young Paul Castellano or John Gotti. He had the vest, slicked back hair, and a toothpick in his mouth. Think 30's Italian mobster slang. He asked me "Hey can you start tomorrow?" "Nah that don't work for me." Weirdest guy I've met working for a dealership.
