I knew nothing about the logistics industry at the beginning, but I could see that PLS had the training and support I would need to succeed in sales.
Since joining the National Accounts team, I've been coordinator of one of the largest accounts since January.
Helping give back and knowing that I can help people in this way, even during normal day-to-day operations like supplying stores means a lot to me and makes my work have special meaning.
What I like about sales is meeting new people, building relationships, the fast-paced environment, making sales, and moving freight.
St. Louis has a great group of senior account executives that have taken new hires under their wing to show us the ropes and give us insight on the trends in the market.
Every day is different, which is something I really enjoy about my job. PLS is a very fast-paced work environment.
Although my background wasn’t specifically in logistics, I feel like the on-the-job experience I have gained at PLS has taught me more than any school could have.
I’m really happy I decided to take a chance and try this sales position because it has been a life-changing opportunity.
My first year was very much an educational experience, and it was a great team environment that was cooperative and understanding. Not being afraid to ask questions helped me grow in my role.
It is a great feeling to be working in the city I love in a position I really enjoy. My favorite part about my daily routine is that it never looks the exact same.
I never go to lunch without giving at least one quote. That way, when I get back and look at my inbox, I’ll hopefully see a message saying, “this is awesome, I want to do it.” It’s a really exciting and rewarding feeling.
At PLS it’s about the quality of your work and not what you’re wearing, what time you come in, or how late you leave.
One of the best parts about working in sales is that you are the go-to person for your clients. It is such a great feeling of accomplishment when a client calls me first and knows they can rely on me.
I became drawn to the idea of a sales career because I always considered myself a social person who enjoyed communicating and connecting with all types of people.
He told me to stop trying to sell like a car salesperson, and instead, find a way to start selling myself.
I love that the sales industry is constantly changing and that you must always be on your toes to succeed and move forward.
I knew that I wanted to go into the sales industry because I was attracted to the idea of controlling my own success.
