  • Entrepreneurial Spirit. You will develop a strong understanding of the department’s sales performance and understand customer’s needs. With this knowledge and experience you will develop skills for providing customer solutions, including telephone selling, both inbound and outbound

  • Sales Relationships. You have successful experience with road sales, and aside from working the parts counter, you will have opportunities to go out on the road to forge new relationships with potential customers and maintain “Service First” relationships with existing customers.

  • Knowledge. You have completed the Red Seal Parts & Warehousing certification program, and you are ready to put your knowledge to work. You have experience with Heavy Equipment, or a similar industry and you’ll have the passion and capacity to learn all there is to know about our product lines.

This is a detail-oriented position and you have already developed personal systems for organizing your work, ensuring you follow up, and you are a stickler for accuracy.

  • Stamina. This can be a physical job with heavy lifting and carrying. The pace can be fast, the hours can be long during busy cycles and you may also need to work occasional overtime. You will also realize that you need to recharge regularly – we insist that you take your vacation time!
