    During my time applying for various graduate schemes and jobs for when i graduate, i applied to Kellogg's for a role as Field Sales Representative. Purely for the reason that it wouldn't hurt to increase my chances in success in getting a job. Now then, I have no idea what the job includes. The job profile is very generic and doesn't really show me much of what the job is, and it doesn't give any indication as to what I can expect for a salary.
    Anyone know anything about this job and would give it the thumbs up?

    thanks

    It will probably be £18-23k base +10-15% bonus + car laptop etc

    Job will involve calling on grocery (supermarkets) or impulse (convenience) stores.

    Your goal will be to increase product distribution, brand presence, grow share of space and drive new product acceptance in store.

    Day to day you will visit 4-6 stores (grocery) 8-12 (impulse), from experience if you are an effective salesman and learn the system your hours shouldn't be too long.

    Kellogg's is a strong brand so will be pretty easy, the targets will usually be % of stores stocking your product... As Kellogg's is a market leader you should hit target ok. Impulse will probably also have a target of new gains per day.

    This job is a great intro into field sales and can look good on a cv.

    In 1-2 years you can progress to area manager (+£5k to field sales rep) or go down the account management route (regional (28-40k base ote 35-50k) then national (40-80k base ote big £££)

    Experience - 2 years FMCG at entry level now regional account manager in construction.

    Yep, classic FMCG sales role. First rung on the corporate sales ladder. You'll do this for 18 months before promotion. Next rung is regional sales rep (28k-ish).
