we dont care who quits as long as Al gives me my $20,000 a month salary I could care less, sure beats having a real job, and I thank Scott would agree. Coffey is a putz but he does kiss some ass awful well. I sure hope Ford gets a bailout and maybe the Ymca too!!!

kia was open 15 days and sold 4 cars, that is directly from there mouths, at that pace I am sure your $2500 wont be there for long, I also heard they were wanting people with little or no experience so they could train them, well they got it with you, they wanted people that would be tickled to make 2500 until they tried to sell all of thier friends and familys and then when they dont produce they send them on the way, so keep your resume up to date, toyota wont have you back when they find out that you were one of the people keeping thier negative post going, so dont talk to smack about me or your mouth will be shut.
I very seriously doubt this is actually Gary but anyway, it got me going again... Yeah Kia did sell four cars the first 2 weeks it was open. What that has to do with anything I really dont know. Not many people knew they were open since they had run zero advertising at the time. And besides that, its a KIA store. Its not a Ford Lincoln Mercury store, not a Chevy/GMC store, a KIA store. I sure as hell hope we can sell as many as one of those type places but I doubt we will see quite as many. And I dont really know why you would say something about that? Since Mazda only sold between 19 and 23 cars for the last 4 or 5 months. And thats a fact. But hey man, I never said one negative thing about AB or Mazda or anyone there. So why you want to start saying shit now makes no sense to me. It is kinda funny how pretty much everyone on here has something positive to say about me except for you and Joe. Hell, the thread hasmy name on it and theres more negative comments about you than me! As for the money ill take $2500 guranteed plus commision selling cars any day. Anyone who sells would. Its the best I have ever heard of. And no it wont be forever, just like any other place. And yeah, I bet they will get rid of some people if they dont perform. Thats how it goes. And your right about another thing, they did wantpeople who had never sold before so they could train them. Thats right, TRAIN THEM. A dealership that actually trains its salesman! But they noticed they were having some problems since evryone was knew and brought me and another guy on since we had experience. But anyway, this is starting to get stupid. A discussion is all well and good but its starting to get off track. Like I said, I have never had a bad word to say about any dealership I worked at. Even one that fired me. They seem to be doing a fine job of showing what there all about all by themselves. And as for a Negative Toyota thread that i kept going I have no clue what thats about. Obviously ive been pretty honest on here so if I did I would say so. Thanks for all the positive comments and stuff again everyone! I honestly hope you all at Mazda have a great month.

It's a little more than ridiculous that people are on Topix talking about one guy and his job as a car salesman and which lot he's moved to and why. I clicked on this post because honestly I thought it was a higher up who wasn't working there anymore, not knocking this Matt guy, I just don't see why it's a big deal??
Oh and $2500 a month is respectable especially because if it's the Matt I think it is, he's pretty young.
I totally agree, it is riduculous. People on here should be talking about Mike Minton leaving Ford and going to Don Marshall, Or Mike Kennedy leaving. Or a Gm or manager or something. Im just a 23 year old car salesman trying to make a living. Nothing more. Good post Allison

Thats nice.......... Who cares?? I wouldn't think Kia would be too happy that your on a public fourm spilling your heart out. If the management doesn't say anything to you, their IDIOTS!!!
Your not gonna make a very good living jumping from car lot to car lot!! We'll be just fine up here @ Mazda without you!!!

BECAUSE THEY DIDNT GET ON HERE AND CRY LIKE A LITTEL GIRL, PLUS IT SOUNDS LIKE JOE ABD GARY HAVE WORKED WITH YOU AND KNOW THE TRUTH, GROW A SET AND TRY AND SELL A ONE OF THE 4 CARS THIS MONTH, KIA IS ALL OVER THE RADIO AND REMEMBER IF YOU ARENT COMPLETLY SATISFIED ASK FOR NICHOLS, BECAUSE AT 4 CARS A MONTH NEITHER OF YOU WILL BE THERE LONG

Are you guys talking about gary Coffey the sales manager at Mazda? I used to work there when he was manager at Ford. He is WEAK. Always has been at being a manager. They moved him to Mazda cause he couldnt do shit at Ford. And the only reason they didnt get rid of him is cause he is al's little ass kisser. Blakley is in BIG trouble anyway and everyone knows it. The dealerships AND everything else Al owns. They can barely keep there heads above water. Gary Coffee is a BIG reason for that. When I worked there and Mazda first opened they sold ALOT! Now its 20 cars a month! No wonder they fire everyone or everyone quits.
Reelly weird

Yeah it is strange, but they are cheap and have a big warranty on them. Cheap is good for sumerset. They will prolly sell a few there.

It looks like more than one dealership has been interested in hiring Matt as part of their team so looks like he's good at what he does to me. I'm sure everyone has left a job for whatever reason but why does it matter? If he doesn't work there anymore, who cares? I've only heard great things about Matt as a salesman, and it seems that's what everyone else on here thinks too. If you don't like the way he sells, don't buy from him. Simple as that. Don't know why anyone on here who thinks he is a bad salesman would care where he's working anyway?! Don't bash him for giving you the facts about his own life (which he doesn't owe you anyway) instead of just letting everyone spread rumors. He's a good guy who moved jobs...get over it.

i got 100 bucks says uk fan is none other than Bradley Wilson...i have worked with matt before and have worked at most of the lots here in town and i can honestly tell you matt is one of the better salesman here...sure he may show up late every few days and take long lunch breaks but no one works harder than he does...he's a hustler a "up gobbler" the only people who have worked with him that didnt like him was because he was getting most of the ups and they were just lazy...as far as Alton Blakleys goes...well there managers are WEAK like has already been said on here, but there real problem is Al is not his Daddy, he is a terrible business man, Paul Hoffman while being a really nice guy and a good boss is not a CAR guy, he and Scott are both this way...Al's just too loyal to a fault and thats why he has all those weak managers working for him cuz they have stuck with him forever and while thats not necessarily a bad thing if he wants to not go bankrupt he is gonna have to shake things up, he needs all knew managers and someone who is a true car guy callin the shots!!!
