    One of the jobs I applied for after being desperate to just get one was an Ad in the newspaper to become a car salesman. This was a ford or Honda dealership I can't recall exactly.

    In this Ad was a $2500 sign on bonus.

    My resume had too many honest words and some sales experience in the computer field. I had mostly technical experience.

    The manager interviewing me asked me why I want to become a car salesman. I said I'm an honest guy and wanted to learn customer service and in the Ad it says free training, no experience required. I asked you offer free training for the unexperienced right?

    He said we can but I don't feel this is your type of job. I said why is that?

    He said because sometimes being a car salesman requires not being too direct or forward.

    I said excuse me I don't get what you're saying.

    Look he said, let me be direct with you, being a sales guy you need to be dishonest to a certain extent.

    Needless to say I didn't get the job.

    Sad, but true. And vehicle sales is not the only business that operates in this manner.

    Actually that's not entirely true,,I buy and sell cars in my free time,,, it's all about matching people up with what they can afford and like,, usually the product your selling sells itself,, and the person selling it is, and should be someone that talks to you as a friend, not a dollar sign...
