Frankston Toyota’s CFO on Women in Automotive
Starting in the automotive industry when she was just a teenager, Frankston Toyota’s Chief Financial Officer Sharon Pask has seen it all. At the beginning of her career she was one of few women employed in what was without a doubt an industry dominated by men.
This is a reality for automotive still - across the retail industry workforce, women have 48.8% of jobs but single out automotive retail, and that figure drops to just 20%.
A Female-Friendly DealershipDecember 21st 2016
It’s no secret that car dealerships and the automotive industry have traditionally been male-dominated environments, but we all know that women drive cars too. In fact, we recognise that women drive about half the new cars on Australian roads, are key decision makers; influencing more than 80% of all car purchasing decisions, but who often feel intimidated walking into a dealership. Most importantly, we understand that everyone buys cars, needs to get their cars serviced and deserves to feel comfortable and confident throughout all dealings with automotive professionals.Read More
Buying a car? There's no such thing as a silly questionDecember 21st 2016
When it comes to buying a car, many shoppers have loads of questions they want answered. How many questions they actually ask is another story.
Browsing at a dealership can be overwhelming for customers and make you begin to question your own questions. Women in particular can start to worry about sounding like they don’t know what they’re talking about… As though a silly question might open them up to ridicule or worse yet – to be taken for ride by a smooth salesperson.
At Frankston Toyota you can cast your fears aside and have an automotive shopping experience at our dealership without a worry. We have a strict policy about questions and that is: ask them!
We are firm believers that there is no such thing as a silly question. This is especially true when you’re making a momentous purchase like a car.
At every stage of the buying journey at Frankston Toyota, we invite you to ask anything that comes to mind.
Don’t understand comparison rates or other finance jargon? Ask and our finance team will be more than happy to break it down for you in a clear, easy-to-understand way.
