Sales Managers typical day at Zwilling JA Henckels
Western Regional Manager (Current Employee) –  Pleasantville, NYOctober 9, 2018
First thing in the morning: Check messages both on email and phone and prioritize on most important to respond to first. Most messages are responded to in less than an hour, but never over a day.

Contact my regional reps: Discuss opportunities for sales, and review best options to pursue. Give them advice on pricing, and set up appointments where i will assist in closing the sale.

Cold calling and follow up: Spend time contacting prospective large accounts and reach out to set up appointments. Referrals come from many sources including internet, business friends and collegues. Sometimes I simply make cold calls on businesses during my travels, shake hands, leave information that ultimately results in a follow up meeting.

Presentations: I always come prepared with literature and samples. Most meeting are exploratory to learn the needs of potentional accounts. We develope a relationship and engage. our objective is to build trust and transparentcy. Success in sales is centered around our ability to engage and develope the kind of relationship that doing business together becomes fun.

Management: I am blessed to have had some of the most knowledgeable and trained managers as mentors. To quote my current VP's inspiration of the day: "Why do you think they make windshields larger than rear view mirrors?" This was in response to some frustrations I was having, and of course it put a smile on my face to look for solutions for the future then dwell on the past.

Workplace culture: The most inportant part of my job as a manager, is inspiring others to be the best. I have
  more... always beleived that simple things like a written thank you acknowledging someone's contribution has amazing results. You can change the total envirornment by acknowleding everyone around you with a smile and thank you. I often hand out starbucks cards to those who have done an outstanding job. All this creates job satisfaction and loyalty.

Hardest part of the job: Knowing when to turn it off! When you work out of a home office, your work can easily become 24/7. I have spoken to many of my reps how they deal with it, and most tell me it is easier to take calls even on vacation, simply to resolve challenges quickly, rather than have them build up over a week. I love my job, but have learned to temper it with meditation, and swimming a few times a week.

Most enjoyable part of the job: Changing a negative into a positive. There are always a crisis and drama in every job, but accepting it and taking responsiblity when something goes wrong, is the easiest way to turn a negative into a positive. There is a huge sense of satisfaction when a client ends up thanking me for handling something that would have upset the applecart had I not stepped in and found a solution.

Productive and interesting place to work
Key Holder (Current Employee) –  Merrimack, NHApril 4, 2018
alot of product knowledge with alot of products. I am there in a part time position. The store manager is awesome and the other associates are great. The entire staff is easy to get along with and willing to help you learn. The hardest part of the job is getting to understand all the products and how they differ from one brand to the next. The most enjoyable part of the job is the associates and the manager and also the customers
Pros
I learned alot about kitchen knives and cookware
Cons
It took a long time to learn all the product knowledge
