Amazing Company!
Designer (Current Employee) –  Burlington, NCFebruary 3, 2017
CBS is an amazing company with a great history. Being still privately and family-owned, they put attention and detail into every choice they make. Your daily life will differ depending what department you're in but with my job, I get tremendous freedom to try new things, grow, and learn. Their benefits are great and after job hopping most of my life, plan to stay with CBS for a very long time. I am very happy with my job at CBS and highly recommend applying if you are currently looking!

Tough environment if you want a career. You can stay in the same job and have no ability to affect change. Some of the Senior Management team is will not ever change.

Fun very fast paced job,made the day go by quick.
My co-workers were like family. Came into the job with little to no knowledge, and left with so much experience.
Would still be working at Carolina Biological Supply Company, if we didn't move back to Florida.
Pros
Awesome supervisor, co-workers
Cons
Long drive for me

Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Burlington, NCOctober 21, 2013
Managing 600 accounts and 3000 contacts takes planning, positioning, and on-going analysis. The appropriate amount of coverage for each has to be determined to provide the most effective management. Planning includes having a minimum number of calls scheduled and knowing exactly who to call and when to contact them. Positioning involves knowing your customer's business, what they purchase, when they buy, how they make their purchases, and any internal or external factors that may affect their purchase decisions. I have this information available when speaking with my customer to ensure that I'm bringing value for my company in every customer exchange. I'm also aware of what they're not buying from me and pursue those upsell opportunities. On-going analysis keeps me abreast of account performance. I'm able to have intelligent conversations on sales/purchase performance even down to specific products. The goal is to uncover any potential issues that may affect purchases and maintain a high level of customer and product satisfaction. I take personal interests in my accounts and pride myself on delivering the best experiences possible.
