Friendly atmosphere, results-driven company
Sales Account Manager in Training (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – August 13, 2013
Begin work at 6am, travel to a number of different accounts (convenience stores, supermarkets, retailers) ordering refills of beverages to ensure an adequate stock, while still aiming to maintain a low level of inventory.
I got hands on experience dealing with the elasticity of supply and demand, as well as techniques for developing and maintaining relationships with managers. I also gained an understanding of specific sales techniques applicable across different industries.
Management was very helpful, understanding, and reasonable.
Co-workers were very similar, in the sense that they mirrored the attitude of their bosses.
The hardest part of the job was adjusting to the long work week. My second week on the job I put in a 70 hour week, with an average of about 65 over the course of my employment.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the consistent amount of interaction with other people throughout the day.
Friendly, considerate co-workers
