If you want to pack your dealership with elite professionals, there’s no way to cut corners on building a disciplined recruitment strategy. Hiring someone who doesn’t fit your dealership culture or who isn’t qualified hurts your team. You’re only as strong as your weakest player.

Craig Lockered is a top expert when it comes to automotive recruiting. His professional recruiting company, Automax Recruiting, is the industry’s number one source for finding and hiring quality people to add to your dealership team.

In this dose of the Dealer Playbook, automotive recruiting expert Craig Lockered reveals some key recruiting strategies. Craig discusses every step of the recruiting process, from the interview, right down to actionable tips on how to sift out the good applicants from the bad ones.

In Craig’s 15+ years of recruiting experience, he’s seen way too many auto dealers tailoring the interview process around their applicants, instead of creating a rigid interview process that’s right for their dealership and sticking to it.

But before the interview can happen, you need to know how to get qualified resumes in your hand. Craig discusses some universal “super strategies” that any dealership could start implementing to increase ROI on their recruiting efforts, including shaping your initial ‘help wanted’ ad to bring in more motivated individuals.
