I have been working in the Auction Business for 7 years now, one thing is very clear to me after these 7 years; the Auction Business is a Tough Business.
There are very few businesses that combined so many different aspects as the auction business, including;
Conducting Business in Many Various Locations
Rules and Regulations
and the list goes on....
The conditions are not always ideal either...

The auction business will test you on every sale that you have. With so many different aspects you have to cover, there are always issues that surface and you have to be able to problem solve. Its hard work, tedious work and long hrs... but it's worth it!
The auction business is truly a unique animal, there is just nothing else like it out there.
At the end of the day it is a rewarding business though, you get to meet so many great people and you are able to bring buyers and sellers together to transact the fastest and highest energy commerce in the world.
Its a great business and industry, and we are honored to be part of the United States Auctioneers!
