I applied for a job in a dealer
I won't mention names.
I went for a sales position.
Now I've just gone the wrong side of 50, but there are guys in there my age, and whilst I do not have any motorcycle sales experience, I do have over 30 years riding under the belt.
My knowledge of bikes both in terms of products and technical, is pretty good, and I have spent many years doing customer orientated jobs.
Anyhow, I got a "thanks but no thanks" letter back from them, and that was that.
About a month later I was in there and spotted a new sales person.
Ah Ha, this is who got the job, so I went up for a chat.
Turns out she had no sales experience, and had never even ridden a bike.
Her previous jobs were in caring for the elderly.
She was damned pretty though,
I don't resent not getting the job, but this was a joke.
Someone with no knowledge, or experience of bikes, who doesn't even know how to ride one, get's a well paid job in a multi franchised dealership as a sales person,,
What a frickin joke.
