Jamestown Container is currently seeking suitable candidates to fill professional sales representative positions for various manufacturing locations. As one of the largest independent manufacturers of corrugated products in the northeastern United States, Jamestown Container has locations in or near Cleveland OH, Buffalo NY, and Rochester NY. Jamestown Container Companies manufactures and distributes Corrugated Packaging, Consumer Point of Purchase displays and packaging supply items. Our customers include many well-known local companies, as well as Fortune 100 companies. The Account Manager is the agent for the outside direct sales of the company's products and services, and is responsible for developing sales leads, conducting needs analysis, making formal presentations, and managing accounts. Prior sales experience is not a pre-requisite for employment, however, a desire to meet and interact with new people from different industries is required. We are interested in candidates that possess a better than average intelligence, an extremely high energy level, and a natural sociability that draws others to them. Each new employee must first complete a sales orientation and training program that will last approximately 6 months. During this period, the sales trainee will be exposed to every facet of the Jamestown Container business. He or she will be expected to demonstrate a working knowledge of each area. At the successful conclusion of the training program, the sales trainee will be promoted to the position of Account Manager and will be assigned a sales territory, with a car allowance, expense account, and the latest tools and equipment (i.e. iPhone, iPad, etc.) to effectively perform his or her job. Each new employee will receive a starting base salary. Once promoted to Account Manager, the employee will earn an increase in salary, and will be eligible for an additional monthly commission on all sales resulting from any new business opened. This incentive is on-going for all new and repetitive sales of new business, and there is no limit to earning potential. Jamestown Container offers a very competitive employee benefit package including medical and dental insurance, a company matching 401K-retirement program, and life insurance. If you are considering a career in sales and marketing, then you should consider Jamestown Container as your opportunity to excel in a very competitive industry.
