Rejuvenating careers (and selling cars)


Irfan Siddiqui, general manager at AutoNation Mitsubishi in Houston, has hired about 15 people who had struggled at other nearby AutoNation stores. While not everyone has made it, transferred employees tend to stay longer and perform better than the people Siddiqui hires off the street. In sales, for instance, they are selling at least three more cars a month than traditional hires.
