DealerRater for Developers

Dealer Employees Collection

This is a dealer-oriented API that can be used to retrieve a list of internet and sales department employees for one or more dealers. The API only supports the GET verb (fetching data). Note that the results of this API are cached on the DealerRater servers for optimization purposes (as such, new and/or updated employees might not be available through this API for a short while). The returned list is sorted by the total number of reviews the employees are tagged on in descending order (so the employee with the most reviews is first, and the one with the least is last). Matching review counts are ordered (secondarily) by the employee's name.
