Interns are viewed as next generation leaders, not simply potential new associates. As such, they will be offered the opportunity to understand and learn many areas of dealership operations. As in any dealership though, it all starts with the sale of a new or used vehicle and that will be the primary focus for this internship as our interns are mentored and managed by the industry's best sales professionals.
