A Rural Lifestyle Dealer poll asked dealers, “Can you share the percentage breakdown by age of the people working at your dealership, including yourself?” Based on the results, the age of employees is pretty evenly distributed among the 4 ages groups (18-30, 31-49, 50-64 and 65+). Of those who responded to the poll, 75% said people age 18-30 made up 25% of their staff. Nearly 69% of respondents said employees 31-49 made up 25% of their staff, while nearly 22% said that age group made up 50% of their employees.
