As sales of new and used vehicles continue to gain steam, so is the momentum for franchised dealerships bringing on more workers. Employment figures moved higher for the third year in a row, according to the annual report from the National Automobile Dealers Association. In 2012, the average dealership in operation employed 55 people and total dealership employment increased to an estimated 963,400 employees from 933,500 in 2011. Those figures came from NADA Data 2013. “Total dealership employment plateaued at 1.1 million before falling below 1 million in 2009 as the recession commenced,” the report said.
