Whenever we hire a new salesperson, it is usually someone who frequents the shop. This is a logical choice; they have the enthusiasm and an obvious interest in motorcycles, so it’s usually a good fit. Techs, on the other hand, can come from any of the motorcycle technical institutes or from other shops. Good help can be hard to find, as this business requires extensive product knowledge, long working hours during the prime selling season, and, above all, an outgoing personality. Oh, and a desire to live an ordinary lifestyle because the compensation is pretty average.
