We are looking for someone with a Bachelors degree (preferably in Business Administration or Marketing or related area) to fill our Sales Technician opening in the Quad City area.
Supreme Radio Communications, Inc. is a 50 year old company with locations in Peoria, Bloomington, Galesburg, and Macomb, Illionois.
Our clients include public safety, governmental entities, businesses, and farmers, among others. We provide and service vital communication infrastructure, from the radios used by police and fire to the full 9-1-1 communications center installations.
Our employees have the opportunity to work with the latest technologies, and we firmly believe in providing ongoing training opportunities for our technicians.
This is a full time position with benefits, including health insurance, paid vacation time, paid holidays, and retirement benefits.
The ideal candidate would be a self-starting, goal-oriented individual who is able to work unsupervised. They would be sales-oriented but with a love of technology, proficient at computer operation, and good with hands-on work (such as working with tools). This is not a retail position; our clients are not the general public--our products are sold to businesses and governmental entities.
Our Sales Technicians spend half of their time selling communications equipment and half their time installing and repairing it. No two days will be alike, and this mix provides both an interesting work environment and one where it is essential for the person to be task-oriented and be able to manage multiple projects at a time. Since we presume that the candidate's training will be primarily in marketing and sales, we will train the successful candidate to be proficient in the technical install/repair side.
The technical part of the job will involve installing and repairing Motorola and Vertex two-way radio systems, mobile video surveillance systems, IP-based video surveillance systems, wide area communication systems and links, RFID solutions, and other communication products.
The candidate will be expected to complete several training classes on their own time, which the company will pay for if they are completed successfully. These training classes will be in basic electronics, product knowledge, and A+ and Network+ certification (computer repair and networking), and other technologies as needed.
Hands-on training on the job will also be provided.
Due to the nature of the systems we service, applicants will be required to pass a pre-employment drug test and will be subject to our ongoing drug-free workplace program.
Applicants will also need to pass a State of Illinois Background Check.
Supreme Radio Communications, Inc. has been in business since 1959. We are a Motorola Authorized Dealer and Premier Service Provider, Vertex Authorized Dealer and service center, and have locations in Peoria, Bloomington, Galesburg, and Macomb, Illinois.
