What this job is about

Every car dealership you see has a specific number of cars it should sell every month. And even if a dealership was filled with the best salespeople of all time, they'd still need a Sales Manager to keep the process going. An auto sales manager keeps car salespeople in check by deciding on monthly quotas, training them on the latest models and helping to oversee finances. Therefore, you'll not only need good communication skills, but also some solid math skills too – and you said you'd never use algebra in real life. It's the ideal job if you're personable, have good leadership skills and actually remember how to multiply percentages.
