Fortune Magazine and Becky Quick Blast Car Salespeople

Posted on March 3, 2012 at 5:23pm 2 Comments

How can some woman writer for fortune magazine use Becky Quick's poor sales expierence as a main story??? Ms. quick's quote several times of her past expierence as a waitress and smiling to everyone at a table in comparison to someone selling cars is no comparison what's so ever. Ive had poor service by waiters and waitresses yet that doesnt put all waiters in that basket. the same holds true for auto salespeople. The sad story that the poor writer fails to address…

Posted on January 30, 2012 at 8:35pm 1 Comment

In todays Automotive news, the above article, Embarrassed Nissan lifts Sagging Satisfaction Ranking is almost laughable.

My How Things Change

Posted on January 27, 2012 at 2:59am 0 Comments

Just caught up with an old Automotive News Jan 16th. Group One CEO Earl Esterberg article titled Hesterberg to Carmakers: Be Mindful of Margins. Found that to be amusing since Earl was 2nd in command at Nissan back in the mid to late 80's when Nissan was all screwed up. I remember they took us to Disney World to learn the Disney way. We then had a business meeting about one of the new models coming out. At that time dealers were allowed to ask questions. I remember like it was yeaterday. I…
