The Garland business takes quality talent, and the ability to develop and maintain customer relationships day after day. It takes individuals with the brainpower, strong work ethic, and a desire to build their own business. It takes people selling knowledge and solutions, rather than product. Our upside-down organizational chart puts the customer at the top, and the salesmen next, with everyone else there to support the sales force. We offer a protected territory, a guaranteed commission structure, an uncapped income, and an intense training program.
The basic responsibility of Garland salespeople is to represent Garland to all customer accounts in a designated geographic territory. Their purpose is to obtain optimum distribution of products by reaching and exceeding their performance objectives.
