Interesting article at, they sent a writer to work as a car sales agent (and an undercover reporter).

The editor explained that they wanted me to write a series of articles describing the business from the inside. Of course I would learn the tricks of the trade, and that would better prepare me to write advice for But the benefits of the project would be greater than just information. I would live the life of a car salesman for three months. That would give me an insight and perspective that couldn't be gained by reading books or articles or interviewing former car salesmen.

    Interesting article. I used to cringe when I would go look for cars and they (salesmen) would be outside standing like vultures waiting for roadkill. Hard job, wouldn't want it. For many years it was a man only sales position. For the most part it still is. You won't see many women in this profession only model looking types pitching the sales on commercials.
