A sales representative in wholesale and manufacturing (but not technical and scientific products) acts as a liaison between the company offering products and customers. Working in conjunction with the rest of the sales team, a sales representative is responsible for having in-depth knowledge of the wholesale and/or manufactured goods offered to ensure customer satisfaction and increased sales abilities. Their sales team usually includes other department-related managers, sales associates, and a general manager. The sales representative may be responsible for reporting to the general manager, who has authority over what discounts and promotions the sales representative can offer and the ability to authorize specialized rates.
