Today on the Auto Insider podcast, Ray and Zach discuss what it was like working in the car business for 43 years, and why Ray recommends you don’t start your career selling cars. The limited earnings potential, perception that you’re the “scum of the earth” from your peers, and the time commitment it takes to be a “successful” car salesperson are just a few of the reasons why Ray doesn’t recommend you go into the car business.
