Pros: mileage reimbursement, bonus's, benefits, company technology
Cons: long days, make or break numbers, on call 24/7
A typical day at work is working 10-12 hours stocking, writing orders, sales calls, doing whatever the buyer wants, traveling from store to store, selling incrementals
I have learned a great deal I have got promotions twice in one year and made the switch to management which you have to learn how to manage employees, build rapport, achieve sales goals, – more... sell incremental displays, and administrative work as well.
My co-workers were enthusiastic and loved the way I managed I tried to get on a personal relationship so I could see what they were interested in and how I could make them want to stay with Kellogg's as long as possible.
The hardest part about the job honestly is the amount of hours you work to even achieve the goals the company wants and even then you may not even hit what they want. I have worked 50-55 hour weeks and staying on your feet all day walking probably 4 miles each day on concrete can wear your feet out.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you hit your numbers and your on top of the world at that point I hit my budget and achieved much more than the budget and received bonus checks. The company does strive for safety and has great benefits. – less
