Your Front-Line Employees Are Your Brand. Are You Hiring the Right Ones?
The difference between a good dealership and a great one is the strength of its people. You may not be able to control dynamics such as market conditions, interest rates, rising consumer expectations, or swift evolutions in technology, but you can control who you hire.
Poor hiring practices cost the automotive industry billions of dollars annually. In addition to costs to find, hire and train an employee, ineffective recruiting and hiring hinders your ability to serve customers.
With over 20 years of recruiting experience, PDS Recruiting has mastered how to find and attract top talent for dealerships. With a proprietary network of candidate databases at our disposal and a dedicated recruiting team with a proven hiring process, we can help you staff BDC positions, salespeople, service advisors, receptionists and management roles.

"The PDS Recruiting Team was quick to place the ads, screen the applicants, approve them and send them to my store for my approval. Very thorough and experts in filling these positions."
~ Lisa Petrie, General Manager, Petrie Ford
“I've always struggled finding good people to work in my Customer Care Center, not to mention the amount of time it would take me to go through all of the resumes and make the calls. The team helped me find 4 phone agents in less than 3 weeks and I was back to setting appointments!”
~ Dan Bailey, Fixed Ops Director, Glenbrook Automotive Group
“My experience using Proactive has been outstanding! Proactive truly cares about my business and I appreciate that more than you know. PDS has worked hard to find me experienced candidates and gone above and beyond in the promises you made. When my first hire didn't work out they were back at it, without question, immediately.”
~ Stephanie Foster, General Manager, Lange and Fetter Motors
“I want to thank Proactive Dealer Solutions for another successful training session. What you do for our store is remarkable. The store’s MOJO always rises when the performance coaches are onsite! The motivation and training that they provide is outstanding as our appointments and sales always increase when they are in the store. I think the best compliment that I can offer is this: our managers look forward to their presence!”
~ Pete Ganis, Dealer, Alice Chevrolet
