Tom is correct..
Ringmen start around $250-$350 for three hours work usually and they can double that amount over time..
Auctioneers usually make a lot more..
However, I know most auto auction have laid off many of there staff already and doubt anyone is hiring at the moment. It doesn't hurt trying...
I believe sometime the best time to work hard looking for employment is when others all sitting back saying "No one is hiring..."
When you get a good chant going make a 2-3 minute demo CD and also a 60 second intro about yourself and give those to some of the auto auctions in your area..http://www.hotauctioneering.com
