 The automobile industry is a dynamic industry that is constantly evolving to meet the needs of a high-tech society. For those who are looking for an interesting, rewarding career, the automotive industry offers a wide variety of challenging, well-paying jobs for qualified, motivated people.

There are a wide range of careers available in the automotive industry. If you are interested in working at a new car or truck franchised dealership in Manitoba, send your résumé to MMDA and we’ll let our Dealer Members know it is available. Please specify the types of positions you would be interested in.

The modern automobile dealership is a dynamic business that serves as a total transportation solution for the public. Most dealerships have exciting career opportunities in the high-tech support areas of service, parts and accessories, as well as new and used vehicle sales, finance, leasing, and a variety of clerical positions.

Within the dealership, these departments work together as a team to make the dealership successful. Every day is different in a dealership, and there is a great deal of pride and satisfaction in knowing you have done your job well as part of a successful team. Because each person in a department represents the dealership to the customer either directly or indirectly, there is a high demand for qualified and motivated people.
