INSIDE SALES REP Business is improving, and we need another rep to handle
the volume in our Classified Department at the Kingsport Times-News.
The base pay for this job is $10.00 per hour,
but most of our reps add several more dollars per hour in commissions.
This is a full time position with a solid benefits package.
You will work from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.
If you have ever worked in retail, hospitality or
call center jobs, you will know what a big deal having a
normal business schedule is. We provide on the job training for the specifics of our systems, but we expect you to already have basic computer skills, as well as knowledge of office etiquette.
You will need to have excellent people skills, knowing when and how to deepen a conversation, and conversely, when to politely cut it off and move on.
No two days are ever the same, because of the wide variety of different things that people send in or phone in to the classifieds.
Generally we find that any type of sales experience is helpful.
You have to be a quick and accurate typist, as we take ads live while the customer is on the phone.
The pace in the office is generally brisk.
We are part of the Tennessee Drug Free Workplace program and an Equal Opportunity Employer.
In addition to helping customers that bring ads to us, we spend time on follow-through with our customers to learn how the ads performed, and to seek new business.
If this sounds like the kind of place you would like to plant yourself and grow, we would like to talk to you.
The first step is to send firstname.lastname@example.org your resume and a cover letter that explains why you might be a good fit for this position.
