Key staff members work with the office manager to set and achieve sales goals, motivate the office team, and provide guidance to new representatives. Key Staff members have access to higher-level managers and invite-only events.

Sales Manager

The Sales Manager position is a full-time role. If the District Manager were to be the “owner of a sports team,” the Sales Manager would be the “head coach.”

The Branch Manager position at Vector Marketing is a great way to test your entrepreneurial chops by having 100% responsibility of an office’s performance for a summer.Every year, more than 300 Branch Managers take advantage of the Branch Opportunity and run an office for the summer. This unique position is an incredible experience for people who are considering a management career or who just want some invaluable entrepreneurial experience.The work of a Branch Manager includes:

  • Reviewing their assigned territory and arranging office location and space
  • Establishing a business plan and relationships with local merchants

  • Interviewing, training, and developing an active sales force

Unquestionably, this is the best experience we offer. Once back at school in the fall, our Branch Managers can say they were 100% responsible for the business operations of their office during their summer vacation.
