Initial Rotation (6-9 months)

For employees in the RMDP, the first rotation will include an extensive six week training course to introduce you to the world of technology retail. We will teach you how to use our robust point of sale software to create your own business leads and keep track of our ever-expanding customer base. We also offer extensive coaching on effective sales techniques and how to qualify customers with various questioning strategies. Good salesmanship can be learned and great customer service is at the core of our business. After initial training, you will be placed for 6-9 months in one of our existing retail stores located in the MidWest, based on your preference and Company needs. While mastering sales consultant skills, you will manage, develop and implement new marketing initiatives across the entire sales team for your territory.

Second Rotation (12-18 months)

Once you demonstrate strong abilities within the sales process and marketing initiatives, you can be promoted to manage a retail store and sales staff. You will be expected to continue to expand on the marketing initiatives and start working with some of our small business accounts. For 12-18 months as a retail store manager, you will be responsible for developing the capabilities of your sales staff, improving store operations and utilizing the store development budget to create marketing campaigns in areas with high growth potential. You will contribute to Company-wide sales programs for future implementation and hone your leadership skills during the second rotation.
