Openings are for entry-level sales and service positions and the opportunity to advance into management is available. Our "promote from within" policy means that all of our office managers started as representatives themselves and have developed the field experience and professional insight needed to develop the talents of others. We remember what it is like to juggle work around classes, exams, and extracurricular activities and we've designed our business to accommodate flexible schedules. Most importantly, our management team offers the on-going training, personal attention, and support that are vital to the success of our people.

Along with enhancing the interpersonal skills a representative brings to the program, our training concentrates on product knowledge and communication skills.
Specifically, representatives are taught how to arrange appointments, meet with potential customers, explain our products, answer questions, write up orders, and ask for recommendations. Overall, the training experience will strengthen and enhance their resumes while permitting them to gain valuable sales and business skills. After the initial training seminar, representatives are also able to attend optional advanced training workshops. These workshops focus on a variety of topics designed to enhance sales success:
