Job opening - Sales Associate/Product Consultant @ Apex Race Parts

Aftermarket Performance EXpress (APEX) is a fast growing company that produces high performance automotive wheels and wheel accessories, in addition to distributing a range of other performance products. Our popular products are known for their performance, quality, value, and superior fitment, but our real success comes from our team of hard working, highly motivated staff members. Our staff of enthusiasts provide exceptional customer service while giving personalized, honest, and detailed product recommendations. We work everyday to improve the company’s systems and processes, expand our product lines, and grow our team. Although we’re in the parts business since 2007, our culture, environment, and growth rate feel more like that of a tech start-up.



APEX is looking for a highly motivated Sales Associate/Product Consultant to support BMW applications. If you are passionate about BMWs, racing, and performance modifications, then this is the job for you. This position is based out of our Livermore California office, but we do offer the option to telecommute part of the work week.

  • Ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment, (answering phones, emails, private messages, online chat, online order entry and customer service)
  • Articulate, professional, and enthusiastic attitude
  • A high school diploma, college degree preferred
Preferred Skills
  • In-depth knowledge of all BMW Models and curently available performance parts & accessories
  • some familiarity with vehicle models and performance parts for other non-BMW makes: Mustang, Subaru, Porsche, Audi, VW…

What we offer:
  • Competitive salary, commissions and bonuses based on experience

I would've loved to apply for this job, I actually keep seeing your Facebook ad for the position also and am constantly tempted to click it but I just started working a sales job at Google a few weeks ago. Sooner than later I will be making a move towards a career in the automotive aftermarket and I'll definitely reach out to you guys.
