Pactiv Foodservice/Food Packaging headquartered in Lake Forest, IL is looking for a Regional Sales Manager to live and work out of Oklahoma City and manage a sales territory in Oklahoma and Texas. Pactiv is the nation’s largest producer of single-use food containers made from clear plastic, aluminum foil, pressed paperboard, and polystyrene foam. Brand names include Hefty®, UltraFlexTM, Reynolds Wrap® and Cinch Sak® waste bags, Kitchen Fresh® and The Gripper® kitchen waste bags, OneZip® slider bags, EZ Foil®, and other Hefty® brand products such as plates and tableware. Customers include companies like Sysco, US Foods and BE Keith, as well as hospitals, colleges and universities.
We are looking for a candidate with a 4-year college degree, aspiring to be a sales manager in one to two years after managing your own sales territory, and who is willing to relocate at that time to our Chicago area headquarters for your next assignment. Our best employees have started from entry-level positions and advanced steadily to high-levels and long careers with Pactiv. The CEO of our $3.5 billion corporation started in this same entry-level sales position.
You may be the ideal individual we are looking for if the following characteristics describe you:
You have an intense drive to achieve objectives.
You are resilient in the face of a challenge.
You can focus on personal objectives despite distractions.
You possess great energy and passion in the pursuit of accomplishing directives.
You project confidence and strong convictions.
You enjoy meeting new people and building relationships.

You are a proactive problem solver, consistent and deadline oriented.
You are passionate about business and your principles about right and wrong.
You hold high standards of behavior and performance for yourself and others.
You don’t often promote yourself and tout your own accomplishments. You are the ultimate team player, grateful for help from others and not likely to compete for positions with peers. You are loyal and coachable with no ego standing in your way. You are interested in managing other people.
Your ideal work environment is one where your passion, creativity and imagination are highly valued, encouraged and welcome. You prefer regular interaction with people who are not harsh or abrasive, and where your talents are recognized and appreciated. You prefer working for a company with a clear mission and purpose that is aligned with your principles and values. You want an environment where politics does not play a strong part in the organization, your boss consults your opinion on important business decisions, and you don’t have to defend and promote yourself over others consistently.
If this environment gets you excited about joining our team, please send us your resume.
