Ally and Your Career

Ally Financial only succeeds when its people do - and that’s more than some cliché people put on job postings. We live this stuff! We see our people as, well, people - with interests, families, friends, dreams, and causes that are all important to them. Our focus is on the health and safety of our teammates as well as work-life balance and diversity and inclusion. From generous benefits to a variety of employee resource groups, we strive to build paths that encourage employees to stretch themselves professionally. We want to help you grow, develop, and learn new things. You’re constantly evolving, so shouldn’t your opportunities be, too?

The Opportunity

Candidate must reside in Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota or South Dakota, within one hour of a major airport, willing and able to travel approximately 70-80% of the time to support the territory. This position requires flexibility in work schedule, including evening hours and some weekends.

At Ally, our Area Growth Leaders are anything but ordinary.  They love the idea of meeting new people and are fearless in the eyes of rejection.  They’re invigorated by proving themselves every day where every interaction is an opportunity.  In this role, you’ll use your creativity to influence and persuade our clients through effective problem solving.  You’re not afraid to command a room—in person or through virtual technology—and you’ll stick in the minds of our stakeholders long after meeting with them.  You’ll be a leader by having the confidence to talk about our services and products we offer while having fun doing it.  Getting in front of the right people gets your adrenaline going and you have the ability to be closing all the time. As one of our Area Growth Leaders said, “I don’t have to make a cold call any day here at Ally.  Everyone knows our name and entertains talking to me.  What I do with that conversation is up to me, and I’m not walking away without closing the deal.”  

The Work Itself

  • You’ll develop sales plans to create leads and sell finance and insurance product lines while effectively managing resources to maximize return on expenditures.  Your ultimate goal is to have fun, be positive and go where the opportunities are!
  • You’ll be going up against “type A” personalities.  You’ll need to get past gatekeepers to get in front of dealer principals. 
  • You’ll be solving problems in a variety of environments and influencing stakeholders directly and indirectly.
  • You’re a leader, but not a manager.  You love making a big splash and seeing others follow your lead.
  • You’ll develop new customers by identifying possibilities for product improvements and new products by following industry and market trends, and competitors.
  • At Ally, you can't be successful on your own. You’ll have a team behind you and matrix partners working for you.  You’ll work collaboratively with Ally Insurance's account teams and all other Ally field personnel in identifying new customers, new business and strategically managing the sales opportunity pipeline. 
  • You’ll successfully handoff closed accounts to the Account Executive for servicing and income development activities.
  • You’ll remain active in the industry and in respective area and trade associations.

The Skills You Bring

  • Strong ability to develop business relationships with decision makers with proven success in sales.
  • The ability to write to influence and persuade—you’re creative and love solving problems.
  • The ability to control a conversation with a perceived level of authority and expertise—you exude confidence without arrogance.
  • Well-developed business management, presentation and relationship selling skills
  • HS diploma or equivalent required.  Industry designations don’t hurt.

How We'll Have Your Back

Ally's compensation program offers market-competitive base pay and pay-for-performance incentives (bonuses) based on achieving personal and company goals. But Ally’s total compensation – or total rewards – extends beyond your paycheck and is designed to support and enrich your personal and professional life, including:

 
  • Time Away: competitive holiday and flexible paid-time-off, including time off for volunteering and voting.

  • Supporting your Health & Well-being: flexible health and insurance options including dental and vision, pre-tax Health Savings Account with employer contributions and a total well-being program that helps you and your family stay on track physically, socially, emotionally, and financially.
  • Building a Family: adoption, surrogacy, and fertility support as well as parental and caregiver leave, back-up child and adult/elder day care program and childcare discounts.
