Posted 2 months ago


You're a current sales professional or desire to become one but you're not overly familiar with the Staples product line or our business outside of Retail. That's expected. We know it. The B2B Sales Associate role and training program is designed for someone just like yourself. Whether you're just starting off in your career or have several years under your belt, the B2B Sales Associate role caters to your knowledge and experience, ultimately preparing you to move up to the next level as a Sales Consultant (think larger territory and more commission!) Did we mention that it's a base plus commission role with a guaranteed subsidy in place while you train? Our initial 2-month training period focuses on teaching you about the company, the products we sell, and the sales skills you'll need to ensure you're successful.

During the next several months as a Business to Business Sales Associate, you will use your newly acquired skills as a "Staples hunter" to prospect for and set your own appointments with potential business customers, develop new accounts and further expand our customer base. The more memberships you sell, the more commission dollars you earn each month!

Career Advancement: After several months, you're now an expert and have perfected the art of sales, placing you on the path to your first promotion with Staples. This role will prepare you to be successful at the next level as a B2B Sales Consultant. In this role you'll initiate relationships with multi-level decision makers, work side by side with a team of sales support and product category experts to ensure all of the customers' needs are met.
