Route Sale Representative, FRITO LAY NORTH AMERICA, INC
Filled in for vacations and days off for other team members. After I was able to bid for a route, I became a swing for 2 seven day routes. I worked the route on the Primaries days off. Ordered, delivered product, merchandised shelves/displays, and rotating to ensure product was always fresh. After I got my own route, I exceeded my sales goals multiple weeks in a row to receive the “top dog” award on a regular basis. I was well liked by store managers and staff at all of my stores because I always gave exceptional customer service, and the common sense to determine what sold best at each location. I had never done this type of job before, but they gave me a chance and I far exceeded their expectations. The only reason I left was to ensure I would not lose my office skills I worked so hard in the past to be proficient at.
