Thompson Tire & Retread is looking for an Outside Sales Representative to sell our products and services. We serve the needs of commercial and retail customers through competitive prices on a wide variety of tire brands and comprehensive tire services including repairs and 24/7 roadside assistance. Additionally, we have a Goodyear Retreading plant that can save a customer 30-50% off the cost of new tires. Thompson Tire & Retread is a family-owned business since 2003. We have three locations in Iowa: North Liberty, Davenport and Dubuque.
We’re looking to add an Outside Sales Representative to our Davenport, IA location to grow our business. Commercial tires are at the core of transportation needs in our economy and there is large market to tap into. This role is responsible for selling our products and services through new-business generation and customer management. You’ll have the ability to sell all makes and models of brands, tire services, and cross-sell the services of our Truck & Trailer dealership. We’ll provide hands-on training with our current Sales Representatives to ensure you’re knowledgeable before you’re provided with sales targets. That being said, we’re looking for someone with grit, determination, and passion. Your sales will be obtained by physically visiting customer sites and building relationships.
What does it take to be successful? You need to be organized to manage your call schedule to adequately cover your assigned territory. You’ll also need to keep your call reports, expense reimbursements, and customer invoices organized. You need to be personable and professional; many times you may be able to win a sale on charisma and tact alone. The faster you can build relationships the more you can build a network of referrals. And above all, you need to know and understand our products to build credibility. We’ll help with this piece through training; the more you put into learning the more you’ll get out of it.
Does this sound exciting to you? If yes, please apply! We’d love to learn about your experiences and discuss how we can build a career together at Thompson Tire & Retread.
