Many opportunities available
District Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Wasilla, AK – December 28, 2018
At Lawson Products the ideal sales rep will build a territory and manage on a weekly or biweekly schedule. This is the closest thing to owning your own business without having to keep onhand stock that I have encountered.
If a person is truly interested in having a career with Lawson, they will need to approach this business as not only a means to an end, but a lifestyle choice.
I learned very quickly that my income was based completely on my own activities and that if I chose to take a day off, I could count on a dip in my income.
Lawson products has always been known as a premier supplier of MRO products but, in recent years has had to source many products globally to stay competitive.
The hardest part of working for Lawson is being able to be competitive and provide top quality products. Competition is fierce and I have discovered that the buying climate has changed from buying quality products from the sales rep that visited most often, to finding the cheapest option available.
The most enjoyable part has been with repeat sales you develop a friendship with nearly everyone you sell to.
Globally sourcing products has had an adverse effect on the quality of products available.
