I am new to the auction business; I am an auctioneer school graduate, as well as, ringmen's school and the NAA BAS class. Looking for additional training. I have 30 years experience in real estate sales, appraisal, and mortgage business. I live Oregon, willing to travel. Thanks, Steve

Welcome to the auction industry Steve. In Oregon I would recommend looking up Doug Peterson, Jim Miller, or Chris Sheik. They are terrific auctioneers who perform many fundraisers.

Manheim Auto Auctions also pay their Ringmen $250 a day to start. With the auto industry is dire straits, I'm not sure in Manheim is hiring. Worth a look.

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..
