    I know you need a form for selling used cameras from the CID (there is a short interview to I understand), perhaps its the same for selling/buying used cars.......

    This is to educate people that they have to write down particulars from sellers just in case if items are stolen......

    it shld be a similar or the same license that pawnshop uses. in case of people using the shop to fence.

    but cars no because it is easily traceable to know who is the registered owner.

    look at the papers. i think they are constantly looking for people. not sure abt part timers though. the turnover rate can be pretty high.

    CS may be the wrong forum to learn how car salesman survive. You may have better luck in car forums.

    One thing about being car sales person is to learn to excel in sales quota. My friend is making ovr 250k per year as a salesman in an agent. nothing is impossible. But he is very quick witted, talk fast, act fast and on the phone most of the time even until 9pm. Money is good once you catch the drift and the inroads in the making. But you can also turn out to be a rotting car sales person who cant even survive on your petty allowance with next to zero sales achievement per month.

    It's like insurance. you work very hard especially at the begining. When you get the flow, you have to work even harder and smarter.

    Slackers can forget about joining this trade. It is not for the weak minded.

    there was once i wanted to buy a car with cash. the sales man kept telling me how wonderful the rolls royce engine was as he used to sell engines for ships. i ticked him off as i told him i was not buying a boat. i hope he survive the trade somehow. stupid & stuck up sales people wont walk very far.
