VIEW JOBS 3/2/2021 12:00:00 AM 2021-05-31T00:00 This work is to be performed entirely outside of Colorado Ally and Your Career Ally Financial only succeeds when its people do - and that's more than some cliché people put on job postings about "company culture" We live this stuff. We see our people as, well, people - with interests, families, friends, dreams and causes that are all important to them. Our focus is on the health and safety of our teammates as well as work-life balance, diversity and inclusion. From generous benefits to a variety of employee resource groups, we strive to create paths that inspire employees to stretch themselves professionally. We want to help you grow, develop, and learn new things. You're ever-changing, so shouldn't your opportunities be, too? The Opportunity Successful account executives love to play. Creativity drives them--they throw new ideas against the wall and watch them stick. In this role, you'll expand product offerings in existing business through cross-selling and increase market share with new clients. You'll balance your compassion and empathy for everyone involved in the sales process. We see our account executives as problem solvers who are resilient, can face adversity, aren't afraid of rejection and emerge as champions when times are tough. If you want flexibility, training to improve your skills and a management team that champions you and backs you up, Ally is the place to be. The position requires flexibility in work schedule, including evening hours and some weekends. Candidate must be based in the Greater Minneapolis or surrounding area willing and able to travel approximately 2-4 overnights per month to support the territory. The Work Itself * You'll sell finance & insurance (F&I) product lines to meet targeted goals by explaining corporate programs and service capabilities, while effectively overcoming objections. * You'll service current customers by maintaining rapport, making regular visits (there's a lot of travel involved with this role), evaluating customer's needs for new opportunities, and replying to requests. * You'll also identify non-F&I opportunities and coordinate with the Insurance Specialist (identify new customers, estimate growth volume and qualify prospects). * To ensure customers are fully knowledgeable with Ally's products, you'll assist in training F&I Managers within our dealerships. * To sustain your success, you'll maintain current knowledge about our competitors, market threats and challenges, maintain professional and technical knowledge by participating in training, and remain involved in the industry, respective area and trade associations. The Skills You Bring * The ability to develop relationships with dealer principals and decision makers. * You have well-developed business management, presentation and relationship selling skills. * Holding yourself accountable is important to you. Being effective at prioritizing tasks is second nature. * You've branded yourself as a problem solver and you objectively manage conflicting priorities. * HS diploma or equivalent required. Industry designations don't hurt. * Significant travel will be required for this role, up to 75%. The position requires flexibility in work schedule, including evening hours and some weekends. Candidate must be based in the Greater Minneapolis area willing and able to travel up to 3 overnights per week to support the territory. How We'll Have Your Back Ally's compensation program offers market-competitive base pay and pay-for-performance incentives (bonuses) based on achieving personal and company goals. But Ally's total compensation -- or total rewards -- extends beyond your paycheck and is designed to support and enrich your personal and professional life, including: * Time Away: competitive holiday and flexible paid-time-off, including time off for volunteering and voting. * Planning for the Future: benefits to help you plan for the near and long term including an industry-leading 401K retirement savings plan with matching and company contributions, student loan and 529 educational assistance programs, tuition reimbursement and other financial well-being programs. * Supporting your Health & Well-being: flexible health and insurance options including dental and vision, pre-tax Health Savings Account with employer contributions and a total well-being program that helps you and family stay on track physically, socially, emotionally and financially. * Building a Family: adoption, surrogacy, and fertility support as well as benefits that help you take care of your family -- parental and caregiver leave, back-up child and adult/elder daycare program and child care discounts. * Work-Life Integration: other benefits including LifeMatters® Employee Assistance Program, subsidized and discounted Weight Watchers® program and other employee discount programs.
