    Get some truly motivated Sales Managers! Sale Reps need less accounts per days so they can spend ample time to give impeccable service compared the Bud Distributors.

    Pros

    You'll learn a lot about beer if you pay attention.

    Cons

    No real support on the job, they only care about getting the beer off truck everything else they don't care. Store owners use and abuse you and if not they will complain and you would just be doing it next week.
