Sales Positions at Elliott Electric

Counter Sales

All our stores have sales counters staffed by "Counter Sales" employees. Customers often come to our Sales Counters to order and pick up their merchandise rather than wait on a delivery truck. The Counter Sales positions mixes the physical requirements of the warehouse with the need for product application knowledge. Counter Sales employees help customers select the appropriate product, pick material from the warehouse, and load material for the customer. Successful warehouse employees are great candidates for Counter Sales positions because they have become familiar with the material we stock, where it is located, and customers with whom we do business. In many stores, Counter Sales employees also perform the job of Inside Sales.

Inside Sales

Inside Sales employees handle transactions over the phone when customers cannot wait for an Outside Sales person to call for routine orders. They can also relay technical information, give quotes, or place immediate orders over the phone for delivery or pick up. In many stores, Counter Sales and Inside Sales jobs are performed by the same people. Inside Sales and Counter Sales positions are great opportunities to prepare for Outside Sales positions.

Outside Sales

Our Outside Sales employees are highly compensated professionals. They regularly deal with customers face to face, recommend the right products for a job, and may suggest new or advanced applications for our products. Outside Sales keep customers supplied with product literature and catalog information. They help "spec" electrical products from blueprints for our contractor customers and help factory maintenance and engineering personnel with their electrical systems' needs. Outside Sales employees need an excellent product knowledge and sales skills. Above all, Outside Sales employees are responsible for courteously and effectively meeting customer demands for our products and services.
