Exciting Product
Sales Executive (Current Employee) –  West Midlands4 November 2017
The franchise I work for has long opening hours. 8:30am - 6:30pm week days, 9am - 5pm Saturday and 10am - 4pm Sundays. Relatively well paid to date, however new structure/pay plan changes on the way.
The VW products are exciting and sellable, with an range new vehicles coming out in the new year.

New Business Advisor (Temporary) (Former Employee) –  Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire10 October 2017
