Division Job Title Description of Responsibilities
PepsiCo Foods Canada: Field Sales District Sales Leader
Learn the foundations of our Direct to Store Delivery system through a robust onboarding program, and then transition to developing your people leadership skills by managing a team of sales reps. We will help you grow from a Mini-District into a full District Sales Leader where you could have as many as 20 direct reports. In this role, you are responsible for growing the business in your district while coaching your team to expand distribution in new and existing accounts. You will also leverage and develop your analytical skills by conducting business reviews with key decision makers.
PepsiCo Beverages Canada: Field Sales Pre-Sell Customer Representative (PCR) Learn how to drive growth and sharpen your business acumen in either a large-format (such as large grocery chains) or small-format (such as convenience and gas) retail territory. Leverage and develop your customer service and relationship building skills to grow the business in your territory by increasing volume and new package distribution as well as selling and executing national and local promotions. This role is a key foundation of understanding the Direct Store Delivery model of the beverages business where we own the piece of the supply chain from order straight through to the shelf.
PepsiCo Canada: Warehouse Retail Sales Territory Sales Representative (TSR) Elevate your selling skills in the retail environment and learn to drive sales in the Warehouse distribution model for our nutrition portfolio: Quaker, Tropicana and Gatorade. Drive growth in your large-format retail territory in a model where store managers order from their own warehouses rather than having PepsiCo deliver directly to their stores. TSRs hone their sales pitch, time management, and relationship building skills to influence all the stores in their region to increase demand from their warehouse, collectively influencing their customers to order new innovations and higher volumes of our products through their banner's warehouse.
