    Current Employee - Territory Sales Manager in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Territory Sales Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at Altria full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay for entry-level position, great benefits (health insurance, DPS, life insurance, etc). Great people, most people try to help each other.

    Cons

    The job can become very monotonous very fast. For the TSM (Territory Sales Manager) position, you are in charge of about 150 stores and depending on your area it can get old fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing so many initiatives on us at once. If we can create out own game plans and have 6 months to implement, it will help grow the business more than pushing a carton of cigarettes on 20 stores.

    Current Employee - Territory Sales Manager in California City, CA
    Current Employee - Territory Sales Manager in California City, CA

    I have been working at Altria full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great first job out of college, secure
    - Salary, Car, Health Insurance, etc.
    - Crash course in (basic) sales, building relationships in business situations
    - Resume builder

    Cons

    - Monotonous
    - Difficult to build strong relationships with customers due to a constant push of new tobacco products, changes in retail programs, etc.
    - Management is luck of the draw - some are great, some not... depends on location
    - Unhealthy focus on pushing new hires to think about rapid promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training should be focused on training great sales people, not glorified merchandisers with a handful of statistics in their tool box.
