I am thinking about becoming a salesman for a snowmobile dealer.  

Does anyone know how much they can make in a year.  I would also want to sell the ATVS and Boats in summer time.

Why don't you go talk to the dealer you want to sell for?  Only he could know how much money you could make.

snowmoking,
 only you can decide how much you make in sales, especially when you sell things that appeal to the ego. ie: who drives the better car ? the bread salesman or the mercedes salesman ?

Snowmobile salesmen get comission, correct?  I have thought about working for my local Ski-Doo dealer also.  It'd be an excellent experience!

To answer the question about how much 'doo salesman make, obviously not enough. Between the time I ordered my '01 and when it came in, the guy quit & went to work at the Polaris dealer next door. In my books the guy has no crediblity. How can you go from running down a brand, which he did, to selling them? Now we know why salesmen are a popular as lawyers.

I sell Bombardier products for one reason...passion! I have rode all of the other brands and I still keep coming back to ski-doo. The workmanship, fit and finish are far better IMO. Every manufacturer has problems with product, and doo takes care of thier customers as well as thier dealers. Believe me, doo will listen if you have a problem and , in most cases, they will go out of thier way to solve the problem.

You want to make sure you belong to a good Dealer. There is a dealer 100 km south/west of you Lockhart's  Odyessey, that;s where I deal and that's where I send people, they are a good dealer, high volume so they can move more product at a better price (519) 688-3278 talk to Brad. If you know the products and you can talk to people and have a good Dealership, thats the battle. Good luck.

Are there awards for best dealer through Ski-Doo?  If there is where could I submit a dealer for this award?  My dealer (Floodwood Extreme Motorsports) is just amazing!  They deserve to be spotlighted for the great service they provide!

dealer of the year means crap and this and that of the year means the same. big companies now have a section where they contact the customer through marketing groups they hire, and the marketing group they hire for the eastern side of the country might be on the western side of the country. tell me there won't be a screw up there, i've seen it. if the marketing group calls people at dinner time and you know with time spreads like that they will, then the dealer gets a slap in the face. after a purchase or service the customer gets a survey of their experience at the dealer and some dealers will call ahead to coach the customer on how to complete the survey. if the surveys are good then there will be pay backs to the dealer. this is the section of the big company that has useless people there trying to justify their existance.

z800rtx,
 the worst part is it cost the good customer {99.9 % of them} more money and the jerk {.1 % customers} got a freebie. the manufacturers say it is a way of insuring the customer gets looked after, the "good" customer knows you can't make a good deal with a bad guy and if he gets treated poorly will not return. so the loser will always be the "bad guy" dealer and the good dealer will be stronger unless he has to stop and do more paperwork generated by the company.

It's quite the inferior system paul.The whole problem started when they stopped promoting good service and dealer managers and started to get there regional managers right from university
The guy doesn't know a spark plug from
a spare tire or has never dealt with an irate customer but we'll let him decide how service departments and dealerships
should be run.That is one of the reasons i got out of it as there was no room for advancement and unfortunately it will only get worse for everyone involved
