Great Product, Fun to Sell
Dealer Sales and Support (Former Employee) – Wilsonville, OR – January 22, 2015
My days at Traeger were a mixed bag of responsibilities depending on the task at hand. Incoming and outgoing sales calls to the Traeger dealer base. Overseeing the ordering and shipment of Traeger grills, accessories, and marketing materials for dealer support. Coordinate cooking demonstrations, food preparation, and travel throughout Oregon and Washington territories.
I learned the importance of Brand recognition, and how to promote and protect the brand both from within and outside of the organization.
During my time with Traeger the organization had a flat structure, two supervisors then the owner, which made all decisions. This structure mixed with the personalities in place often caused a bottleneck at the top and delayed both information and decisions pertaining to the dealer base.
I enjoyed most of my co-workers, Traeger was a fun product to sell and created a casual working environment.
The most difficult part of my job was overcoming the objections of our dealer base relating to Traeger selling grills online, thus becoming both supplier and competitor.
By far, the most enjoyable part of my job at Traeger was traveling the territories and providing cooking(grilling) demonstrations at dealer locations which increased dealer grill sales and built stronger business relationships.
