    Dealer Partner/General Manager

    Isn’t it time we turn your BIG DREAMS into reality?

    You’ve been dominating your market and the automotive industry for years. With numbers off the charts and a staff that would run through walls for you. But what’s next? You’ve always wanted to own your own dealership. But frankly, had no idea how you would get enough money for it or enough experience to make that dream come true. Well, you’ve never had a friend like FFUN.

    We’ve just opened the door for you. Check that. The door has been blown right off its hinges. Welcome to a different kind of role and a different kind of opportunity. We are looking for bold, uncompromising, turn the whole damn industry on its head type of game changer to join us as a Dealer Partner/General Manager at one of our auto dealerships!

    You can be an owner, be the Dealer Principal, hitch your wagon to one of the fastest growing Motor Groups in Canada and directly share in the profits and long-term wealth creation of that dealership. We don’t settle for average. This starts with our people and you at the top. This doesn’t mean you’re necessarily the loudest one in the room, but it does mean you’re the most determined and process-driven of the bunch. This role thrives on an entrepreneurial mindset. We know you’ll love being a part of a FFUN culture, but it’s all about growing YOUR business and building the community around you.

    If you are the A+ player that we think you are, earning $EVEN figures will come sooner than later. And don’t worry about the money you need now, we’ll finance your equity stake to get you where you want to be, faster than you ever imagined.

    What’s in it for you?

    • Industry Leading Pay Plans – It’s a great feeling when your pay matches what you know you’re worth. We’ll take good care of you. But grow your store and you’ll be rewarded handsomely on a very aggressive bonus structure.
    • Vacation—Enjoy three weeks your first year to regroup and refresh as needed.
    • Training & Development – How do you want to grow? With our FFUN University you have access to world class teachers and industry training materials, 24/7.
    • Health & Dental – You’re going to have a smile on your face every day, so we better make sure to keep it pretty.
    • Giving Back – From Hospital Foundations to local sports teams, we want everyone to have a little more FFUN in their lives.

    What you’ll be doing.

    The Dealer Partner/General Manager role is one of leadership and commitment to the process. Overseeing all variable and fixed operations, this role drives the performance of the store by attracting, developing and retaining great talent and creating an exceptional buying and ownership experience for our customers. This position interacts daily with customers, sales, service and parts teams, regional and market leadership, manufacturer representatives and vendors. But don’t forget to have a little FFUN while you’re at. Interacting with some of the best people and coolest product on earth (Acura, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Ford, Genesis, Hyundai, Kia, Volkswagen). That should keep your motor running.

     

    We keep things simple, measuring your performance on achieving and exceeding:

    • Targeted unit sales (number of units and dollars) and profit in all business areas.
    • Targeted expense management.
    • Targeted employee retention.
    • Targeted Customer Satisfaction Index.

     

    A great attitude will get you 90% there, for the rest, we’re looking for:

    • Relevant Automotive General Manager or General Sales Manager experience.
    • Minimum of 10 years of management experience in a sales and service capacity.
    • Strong financial acumen, beyond just using the calculator app on your phone.
    • Be the voice (and the pretty face) of our business in the community.
    • Passion and enthusiasm. Not just for the sweet products you sell, but for inspiring your team like a sports movie monologue.
    • Valid driver’s license; must have and maintain an acceptable, safe driving record.

    What it’s really like to work here.

    We’re an automotive and recreational retailer with over 20 locations across Canada and one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. At FFUN, we do things a bit differently.  There’s no corporate nonsense. Instead, we work in dozens of self-sufficient, business units. Think of them like start-ups within a start-up, that learn from each other.

     

    You are your own boss. But you’ll get tons of guidance and heaps of support from talented, super-smart colleagues from all over the country.

     

    We’re going to be upfront – the way we work doesn’t suit everyone. But if freedom, autonomy and life-affirming, head scratching professional challenges rock your world, we could be a match made in heaven.

     

    Ready for your happily ever after? Apply to work with the FFUN Team today!
