Grocery Buyer/Seller Account Managers
Chatsworth, CA

We are well known in the grocery closeout industry, and handle national branded grocery product for sale into the secondary market for many of the largest food companies in the United States. We are seeking to expand our staff and need additional Sales Account Associates. We have a long list of vendors and this position is designed to expand that list. We will train from top to bottom

About this job:

This is an inside buyer position in Chatsworth, CA 91311

Virtually everything we do involves the use of several unique purchasing tools. The proper candidate must be able to think outside of the box

The position begins with training and a guaranteed salary that will diminish over time, and disappear eventually, to be replaced by a strictly commission based compensation package

The Account Manager will be trained to be both a buyer and a seller of excess, short-dated grocery products and similar consumables

The candidate will need to learn grocery industry buying techniques, terms and categories of merchandise, combined with the aptitude to sell grocery products that, while perfectly viable, safe and healthy, have reduced shelf life and hence pricing and delivery are a major part of the negotiations.

The job will include cold calling and warm calling both to find customers that can buy what we have to sell, and vendors that want to sell what we have customers to buy. The job is a blend of someone with the creative juices to understand and utilize personal sales techniques that truly make every deal a win-win.

After initially learning the cold call process for customers (which the entire staff will share) the candidate will be moved speedily into the vendor side. It is the vendors that are what create the source for the income for the candidate. Bonuses of fifty percent of the first deal•s profits.

The job involves learning an intuitive understanding of what a product is worth in the closeout market for a closeout retailer and then how to make all of the parts work so that we can deliver the product to the customer at the price that he wants.

We offer industry leading benefits and retirement packages
