Valued my time at JTI, was sad to leave due to relocation.
Work with international teams, and had a lot of Global exposure. Management was relaxed and rewarded accordingly. Global culture made it interesting and fun. Was offered a role in Geneva, Switzerland that I was sad to refuse.

A typical day with JTI would be to promote cigarettes brands with marketing materials and trade spend. I learned how to develop relationships with retailers and the ability to sell products in a highly competitive industry.
Recruitment and Employer Branding Associate (Current Employee) – Teaneck, NJ – March 3, 2016
Starting off as a temp, I chose to accept a full-time offer at JTI because of the challenges it offers, I knew it would force me to grow and it has. It has a start-up feel with the backing and diversity of a top international company. The challenges make or break it for JTI.
Some people find it difficult to manage the workload and demands, so only those who are creative, take initiative and focused can thrive. Competition is fierce in the tobacco industry, and JTI being a smaller player, demands a lot from it's employees in order to grow. Fortunately, we have been growing consistently.
The culture of the company is traditional, results-oriented, but has it's fair share of company outings and knows how to have fun once in a while. The benefits are stellar and pay is fair when benchmarked against industry standards.
Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Louisiana – December 4, 2015
Typical days lasted from 8am until whenever you finished all of your assigned duties; starting with the expected 10 sales calls per day, unbelievable assessments such as price audits, misc. surveys, required during each call, taking hours. Your responsible for handling customer issues, keeping track of and ordering inventory for your own storage, morning and nightly reporting also taking hours, traveling the 2-3 hours between your calls and home, and anything else demanded by your immediate supervisor. This is not including normal sales position responsibilities such as expense reporting, call logs, potential target lists, and so forth. Unbelievable amount of work, this position is physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting to say the least. The company will drain you of every ounce of energy and positivity before they fire you for no reason. Caution signing the "at will" employment its in every page of your Sign on handbook- This job never ended from day to day. The hardest part of the job, the company became impossible with goals setting them extremely impossibly high, then dropping them by half the next sales cycle. The management, says they are all about employees, however they are only worried about numbers. Not customers, not employees, they are only worried about an impossible increase in revenue. Considering the products they are selling in the US are not in the least bit "iconic", even if you sell them in they sit on the shelf. Extremely tough sale and impossible expectations. Be prepared to travel most of your life, and work morning until night. This companymore... has lost sight of its vision, or the vision it is claims to represent. It may have been great to work for at one time, however it has become the worst job, and the worst company I have ever worked for, and by far.less
okay if have other source of income only a seasonal job
