All mechanical and body parts are available. With unbeatable prices, we guarantee to get excellent value for money plus our customers can save = as much as 85% off dealer prices. Our dedicated sales team is helping our customers to locate the part = they require. Delivering the parts anywhere in the Europe and USA is not a problem as = our mail order service covers the whole of the Europe and USA The reason for our success is the fact that we are able to meet our customer's demands wherever and whenever. We are very flexible and we = can honor our orders when others cannot. This is due to the fact that we = accept almost any type of payments and we have a very fast delivery system = which combined with the great customer support we provide took us to where we = are today. We take great pride in what we do because it is not always easy = to satisfy all customer demands while still processing the orders very fast = and receiving payments for the products in a timely manner. This is why we = need you and bellow you will find the job description and what is asked of = you. Job description: While performing this job you will encounter no fees to be paid in = advance whatsoever; No employee from our company will ever ask you for any sensitive information; You will not be involved in any kind of sales or contact with our = customers; Everything you will do is legal under the European Union/United States = and International laws as they are currently applied..

Forward balance after deduction of percentage/pay to any of the offices = you will be contacted to send payment to. (Payment is to be forwarded by = Western Union Money Transfer). You will receive 10% for every check processed in the first month. = Within one month after receiving the first check you will get an extra $1,000 = if you will manage to cash checks in a timely manner, also this bonus = includes Internet bill, phone bill, gas/bus tickets. We will support all bills = you have to pay for your Internet and cell phone. PLEASE NOTE: This bonus = will apply after one month starting the day you will receive the first check. After two months of working with us, a secondary bonus will apply. You = will get 15% from all our sales. If everything works as we will expect and it will, you will be able to do up to $1200 - $1300 per week + the bonus of $1,000 every month. Bonuses regarding, cashing checks are as follow: Cash the check same day and you will receive a bonus of $150 for each = check cashed. Cash the check within 24 hours and you will receive a bonus of $100. Cash the check within 48 hours and you will receive a bonus of $50 The salary will be paid to the Representative by cashier check. New offices will be opened in the United States, as we recently launched = our products to the US Market and most of our customers and we had a big = impact working with US Customers. The estimated duration for opening the new offices is between 2 to 4 months. This is why we are trying to find = someone capable to help us administrate all the US Area. The today's situation on the financial market requires us to open and = fill several of these job positions within our company; the job opening is = that of a Representative within the US. This opening will help our company to reduce the time it takes to receive funding from orders that we receive = each month. And we offer you one of the highest incomes on the market today = and the minimal expenditures of time. Presently with the number of orders we have we cannot put them on hold = for fear of losing our customers, secondly we cannot cash these payments = from the US soon enough, as international checks take about 28 working days = to cash anywhere in Europe. We lose a lot of time and money each month = because we have money transfer delays. Our clients could pay us where we want by sending checks to an US address. What we need you to do is to provide us = an address where you can receive our customer checks. We need someone who = can receive the money through this method of payment. Regarding the check process all you have to do is to receive the checks our customers will = send to your address, take them to your bank, cash them and send the = remainder amount to us after deducting all fees incurred and your commission. All = fees for transferring the funds will be supported from our share. Bonuses = will apply for cashing checks within 24 hours on receiving a check.. You will always take your commission upfront. We make direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received = and processed we deliver the product to our customer (usually through USPS). = The customer receives and checks the product and proceeds to send the = payment. We accept all forms of payment but most of our customers pay using Bank Checks and so to solve this problem and not lose any of our customers we have decided to open this new job position. This job is legal according = to the U.S. legislation as it is today. Local money transfers take but a = few hours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer's payment almost immediately PAYMENT AND SALARY: For example you receive a check as payment for 3000.00 USD, you deduct = your commission (10%): 300.00 USD and then send to us the balance: 2700.00 = USD. In the first month, you will receive around 15-20 orders under 3,000.00 = USD to process and after checking your performance records during that first month the orders you will receive, may increase from 3,000.00 upwards to 6,000.00 USD. For example 20 transactions each around 3000.00 USD gives you a total = income of 6,000.00 USD per month and after establishing a close co-operation = with us you'll be able to operate with larger orders and you'll be able to = earn more. You will also deduct fees that are related to this job (gasoline, = western union fees, bank commissions, etc) from our balance, not from your commissions. At first the checks you will receive will vary from: = $500.00 to $3,000.00. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction on your part. Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can have them cashed in your existing bank account, we don't accept newly created bank accounts because it slows the cashing process. Deduct your percentage and forward = the balance to the company attorney manager via a western union money = transfer, the name will be given to you later after cashing a payment. This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You'll have a lot of free time = for taking up another job; you'll get good income and a regular job. This = job is very challenging and you should understand it. We are looking only for = the employee who satisfies our requirements and will be an earnest = assistant. We have health insurance and the 401K retirement savings plan as well as = all the other standard benefits that a major company usually provides.

In any case you do not have to pay for anything in advance; = there are no hidden costs for performing this job. Any fee you might encounter will be deducted from our share of the funds before you send it to us. You will receive next instructions step by step. WORKING HOURS: This depends of how many checks you will receive but it won't take more = than 2 hours to deposit the check and send an e-mail when the check arrives = to you. Also when checks arrive we will send you further instructions and = all details to complete the process with Western Union. Unfortunately we cannot setup any interviews now we do not have any representatives in US. We will be able to come to meet within the next = few months when the new offices will be opened in your area! Please let me know if you are still interested and I will email you the contract.
