VIEW JOBS 7/14/2018 12:00:00 AM 2018-10-12T00:00 Equal Opportunity Employer: Minority/Female/Disability/Veteran What do you think of when you hear the word "career"? Longevity, stability, promotions? Maybe even being a part of a work family? A home away from home? Here at Waste Management (www.wm.com), you'll find all of those things and more. We are the most stable company (Fortune 250, symbol: WM) in the most stable of industries: environmental solutions. And we're the best at selling the most reliable service around. Everyone needs what we can provide! If it's a career you want, then we have you covered! We will challenge you in your sales career with us. We offer our employees a competitive compensation package and the opportunity to move within the company, laterally or upwards. At Waste Management, we believe in taking care of our own. We will help you get to where you want to be. Entrust your career with us and you'll soon realize how quickly WM can start to feel like home! About the Job As an Outside Sales Representative (OSR), you will call on primarily small and medium-sized commercial accounts in a field-based position to generate new sales. It's all business-to-business (B2B) sales, doing new business development 100% of the time. We call this job a "HUNTER", and for good reason. You're hunting down the new business and closing it. About You (The Ideal Candidate) You are someone who not only enjoys meeting new people, but you love finding out what makes them tick. And then, once you've befriended them, you want to help them in whatever way you can. You're motivated to not only achieve your goal, but to exceed it in whatever way possible. You have a relentless, "never say die" attitude and you love a good challenge. And, oh yes, you want to make some money while doing it! About our Minimum Requirements At a minimum, you will need to have a Bachelor's Degree (accredited) or in lieu of a degree, a High School Diploma or GED (accredited) and 2 years of business-to-business sales experience. About our Preferred Requirements We'd prefer that you have B2B sales experience specifically in a hunter capacity. You'll have accomplishments under your belt, and you should be proud of those – maybe it's winning a sales contest or exceeding goal for 6 months in a row or being Sales Rep of the Year. Whatever it is, we want to hear about it! Also, you'll be able to navigate a CRM tool pretty easily – and if it's Salesforce.com, then we're in business! About What We Will Offer You We'll provide you with a competitive salary and incentive plan that will motivate you to sell. The plan is uncapped, which should absolutely excite you! While you're going through training, a portion of your target incentive compensation (target commissions) will be guaranteed as you ramp up (which is pretty awesome!). You'll receive a top-notch benefits package, including Medical, Dental, Vision, Life Insurance and Short and Long Term Disability. You can participate in our Employee Stock Purchase Program (ESPP), a fantastic company match on 401K (4.5% with NO vesting period), and more! You'll also receive Paid Vacation, Holidays, and Personal Days. About Next Steps If this is a match made in heaven, then what are you waiting for?! Apply online right this instant! Make sure to upload your resume and include reasons why you've left past positions in the details of your application. We will review your application and if you're a fit, we will absolutely reach out to you! I understand that applying to this job indicates that I have the legal right to work in the United States. I agree to perform physical duties of this position as outlined in the job with or without reasonable accommodations.
