Some of the items on the list may affect how well you will enjoy the job and whether you will be successful doing it.

You do not have to record your responses -- this information is provided simply to help you decide for yourself whether you really want to be a TSM in the Field Sales Force for Altria Group Distribution Company.
Do you want to work...
For a company that is striving to enhance and extend its leadership status in its business sector? But, keep in mind that this goal will often require you and your peers to do your jobs at a fast pace and work long hours.
For a company that will challenge you to be personally accountable for achieving significant, measurable work objectives? That challenge, however, will sometimes require you to work in some difficult conditions like driving alone in a van in bad weather or heavy traffic.
For a company that strongly promotes doing high quality work and effective use of resources? Our TSMs must perform some administrative and reporting duties related to their sales activities while exercising close attention to detail and tight cost control. In other words, we expect our TSMs to demonstrate exceptional excellence in their work.
Because our TSMs drive a company vehicle in their territories, they must have and maintain a valid U.S. driver’s license in good standing and provide proof of a good driving record with no DUI convictions in the last three years. Additionally, our TSMs must be able to lift and carry items weighing up to 20 pounds and be able to climb, stoop, kneel, push, and pull regularly throughout a work day as they call on their customers. Please note that in order to qualify for our TSM assignments, you must be eligible to work full time within the United States without sponsorship.
You should also be aware that TSMs are expected to be involved, participative members of upbeat, energetic, and socially connected work groups called Unit Teams. Even though each TSM is part of a team, AGDC provides each individual personal recognition for his/her accomplishments and regularly gives deserving employees opportunities to advance to higher level positions. Remember, TSMs are personally accountable for their results in their territories.
