ATF students receive a behind the scenes tour of how car dealerships work



Automotive Students from all over the county visited dealerships this fall to explore the many career opportunities that are available through an automotive dealership. Students visited Darcars 355 Toyota in Rockville, Euro MotorCars in Germantown, Fitzgerald Subaru/Hyundai - White Flint, Fitzgerald Used Car City and Toyota service in Gaithersburg. Students were given a tour through the different departments and talked with staff about what makes a good employee, entry level positions, customer service, employee training possibilities, etc.
