Outside Sales Representative (Currently one Opening)

You could make $50K, $70K or $100K IN YOUR FIRST YEAR with New Jersey’s leading, cutting edge, aggressive construction products distributor, Gamka Sales Co., Inc. in Edison. With no cap on commissions, you decide your earning level! All it takes is hard work. How good are you?

What else is there besides $$$$ potential? Medical benefits, 401K, mileage pay, and more. But WAIT! The bar is set high for the high price we pay. We don’t want just anyone to represent us, we only want high quality, dedicated, customer service first, early bird worm-getters that work late too. It is all about availability. You must answer the phone when it rings. Look, Gamka deals with building contractors: they start early, work hard and often demand what some companies might call unreasonable. Gamka lives for these challenges. Succeeding is why we are thriving in a tough market.

Gamka is a company that shoots straight and Gamka expects straight shooting employees. No BS, ever, thank you.

To prosper with us you need to expect a long day, have a really good sales personality, intelligence, strong organizational skills, heart, a big customer service ethic and a car for openers. You need to be passionate about your job. We will be there to back you with technical support, an established account base and leads. You will get a cellphone, too. Do you have to know about every product we have to offer? NO, at least not at first. That would be ridiculous. You will need a good memory and a head to match items with applications because you won’t be able to get along on a gift of gab and by bringing donuts for very long. Our customers expect expertise after a short while and have a right to it. Smoke and mirrors have no place at Gamka. Don’t expect to us to baby sit you, we won’t micro-manage after you get up to speed. Sales Professionals don’t need it and that is what we want to hire. You will need to do call reports and expense reports and a weekly calendar in advance but that is pretty much it, after selling, of course.

Once your customers know you know what you are doing, price objections will fade and orders flourish. Our prices are competitive but we believe that good application information, dependable and quick delivery and products that are tops have a value that we expect to get paid for. We don’t need to practice, we are here to make profits, isn’t that the point? If you think otherwise, go away.

Check us out here at gamka.com BEFORE you apply. Look at the products we sell and rent, review the detailed job description, read about our history.

If you are not scared off with 46,000 line items and 1,800 pieces of rental equipment to learn about and promote, hard work, dealing with the construction industry and sometimes slogging through mud, click to e-mail your resume or fax it to 732-248-1445. Hint: it won’t hurt your chances if you do something original like telling us WHY you are the ideal candidate for this job, maybe tailoring your resume to show why instead of just sending in the one you use for your shotgun approach. Maybe you have heard this phrase, “Many are called, few are chosen.”? That is very true at Gamka HR. If we like your resume and presentation, there will be several interviews, comprehensive psychological testing, etc. Because this is a two way street and we expect that you will be interviewing us too, we will answer any questions as openly as we can without giving away company secrets. If we find ourselves mutually getting close to a decision, we will have you ride with a salesperson on a typical day. We will require your signature on a Non-Compete agreement if you are the lucky one.

There is construction nearly everywhere and we offer a career not a job. Once bitten by the Construction Bug you won’t want to leave the industry! Just like us.

If you are interested in being considered for an interview download our Employment Application Form 2016, fill it out and return it us via fax (732-248-1445) or mail it to us at 983 New Durham Road, Edison, NJ 08817. You can even drop it off in person!
