What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Sales Specialist, Food Products in West Bend:
"Be prepared for Plan B."
Since keeping food hot or cold is critical to keep customers safe, know your cooking temps and times by heart.
You'll also need to be a critical thinker; What can you do if you don't have an outlet to plug in a refrigerator? Make sure to have a Plan B in mind.
When traveling from store to store, the set up of outlets, and aisles are usually different. Ask a store mgr where demonstrators usually set up.
Stay motivated and enthusiastic. People buy from YOU because they like you. Stay positive. All of your words must be sweet since YOU represent your environment.
