The opportunity:

We want a person with strong communication skills who can contribute and execute creative ideas to grow our business. Experience, although gladly welcomed, is not necessary! High potential candidates, that can learn every aspect of our business through hands-on training, are highly sought after for this position. If you: value customer service, can identify and obtain product in a timely and accurate manner, and thrive on not just meeting, but exceeding, customer expectations we want you as our new Inside Sales Service Trainee! This hands-on program will consist of three phases:

Phase I Warehouse:

In order to do so you will become familiar with our computerized inventory system as well as where many specialty products can be obtained from. 

Phase III Inside Sales: 
After gaining valuable and nuanced knowledge of our products and services at the counter you will step up into Inside Sales. This position will demand great phone skills and initiative.
