The latest job postings show the company wooing talent with attractive salaries.
Huawei's HR and headhunters recruiting professionals for its automotive sales business have been active on several recruitment apps in China recently. The salary level for its new energy car sales positions in Shanghai is CNY 15,000 -30,000 (USD 2307-4615), job ads show.
Huawei announced in April that it started selling cars, with the first model being the Seres SF5, priced at CNY 216,800 (USD 33,624) for the 2WD version and CNY 246,800 for the 4WD version, with official delivery on May 29.
Huawei's car sales business is in full swing, and at the same time, Huawei's car sales talent shortage is becoming more and more apparent. For this reason, Huawei also began a mad rush to recruit salespeople.
The commission of sales staff accounted for the bulk of the salary, each car commission is CNY 1,500 with no performance indicators, local media quoted Huawei's HR said.
The commission for Huawei's car sales staff is CNY 1,000-1,500 per car, depending on the region. The average commission for Huawei store salespeople in Shanghai is CNY 1,500, with a guaranteed base salary of CNY 5,500 during the probationary period, and the average commission for Huawei store salespeople in Beijing is CNY 1,000.
In comparison, Beijing-Hyundai Auto 4S store's commission for a single car is CNY 500, while brands including FAW-Volkswagen, The Great Wall Motors and Mercedes-Benz will adjust their sales according to the popularity of their models, with a general commission of CNY 200-600.
Huawei previously said that it will use the more than 5,000 Huawei experience stores across the country and will take advantage of the storefront of the offline channel as much as possible.
The Seres SF5 will enter Huawei's 200 retail stores at the end of July and will expand to 1,000 by the end of the year, Huawei Consumer Business CEO Richard Yu revealed.
In addition to Shanghai, the model will also be stationed in Shenzhen, Chengdu, Hangzhou and other places. At the same time, Seres has also started to develop its after-sales service network in full force, recruiting dealers on a large scale.
At the same time, Yu has set a target of selling 300,000 units next year within the company, exceeding Tesla's annual sales in China.
