I am training a new salesperson at work
I work at a company that sells American made building materials.
The building materials that we sell are primarily intended for helping to hold rebar in position.
We sell tons of rebar tie wires and wire ties every day, and prior to this point, I was the only one at the company who was taking orders. As things really get started up again in the construction community after two years of slowing down for the pandemic, I have noticed that things are really taking off around here. I am busy literally all the time, and my phone rings off the hook from the time I get here in the morning till the time I leave at night. I am basically getting overwhelmed with taking orders and I told my boss and I am going to have to have more help. He told me that he would be happy to hire someone to work with me, but I would have to be in charge of training them. Right now I’m in the middle of teaching a new woman all about our American made rebar wire ties and all of the different sizes and uses for them. Our top selling product is something called 16 gauge double loop rebar ties. I keep telling her that these are the things that we sell the most of, by far. Every day she will definitely be taking orders for these, and so she might as well get really familiar with what they are and what they can do. She is already getting used to the idea that she is going to be talking about rebar wire ties all day. I know that it’s not the most exciting job, but it can be fulfilling!
