Summer Student - Sales Representative
Location: Western Ontario
Schedule: Monday-Friday/Saturday, averaging approximately 48 hours/weekly
Job Type: Seasonal, Contract Term (May, 2022 - July, 2022)
Vantage Canada is looking for our next sales superstar. At Vantage Canada, we offer world class training, and an experience that is unique and rewarding.
Our staff has the opportunity to live in some of Canada's most beautiful cities in our staff accommodations (Vancouver, Kelowna, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton or Toronto). Our hands-on training is done daily, so you’ll finish your summer not only with unmatched income, but a new skill set for your future career. We provide fully furnished apartments/housing (rent free) and give students the opportunity to earn a higher than average summer income (our 2021 average earnings per student was $17,500 over the course of the three month summer).
Students work in a sales role marketing residential services for Terminix International. You will have the opportunity to learn how to perfect a sales presentation, drastically improve your communication skills and the trajectory of your career with some of the most respected names in the industry, and apply these skills in live customer presentations daily.
As such we look for highly accomplished, extremely motivated individuals who are not looking to just pass the summer by, but want to maximize their earnings, travel within Canada, and gain valuable and transferable business skills.
Vantage Canada hires only the most ambitious students. This connects you with like-minded peers and creates a new valuable network of friends and business colleagues. This job also allows you to travel, should you so choose, as many of our sales reps work in a different province each month. Those who prefer to stick closer to home, can also do so.
Vantage Canada sales reps come back to school in the fall with a new set of business and interpersonal skills that are simply not taught in university. In this job, you will be performing thousands of sales presentations to a very diverse group of people across major cities in Canada. Our reps come back with a new level of confidence and ability to communicate with people of all ages and backgrounds.
Nervous doing presentations in class? You won't be after a summer with Vantage!
If you are truly interested in setting yourself apart, living and exploring our beautiful country, all while gaining financial freedom, then this could be the perfect opportunity for you.
The PERFECT person for our program is the person who:
- Is adventurous and either has done some traveling or wishes to
- Comes from a competitive background i.e. sports/dance, etc.
- Is extrinsically motivated and hardworking
- Has outstanding people skills, is out-going and is well-liked by peers. Is motivated by money and/or by competition.
Sales representatives will be tasked with canvassing neighbourhoods across
Ontario and giving 75-100 sales pitches per day. Each morning, the sales team will meet to discuss advanced sales techniques and communication strategies.
Although this is a commission-only sales contractor position, applicants can expect to earn between $15,000 - $25,000 CAD in a 3-month period based on our company’s historical averages. It should be noted that this position’s compensation is uncapped, and is entirely proportional to the amount of sales the contractor makes. The highest rookie sales rep compensation earned in one summer was $80,000 and occurred in 2020. Although this level of commissions is an outlier, it serves to reinforce the idea that pay is directly proportional to sales ability.
Since this is a contractor position, the sales rep will have the authority to set their own hours and schedule. However, it is highly encouraged for each sales rep to attend daily sales meetings and work 6 days a week. The compensation listed above is based on a 6 day work week with each day consisting of approximately 1hr of training and 6-8hrs of selling (total ~48hrs per week is encouraged). There is no cap on the amount of hours a sales rep wishes to work in a week.
