A titan in communications, media and automotive services, Cox Enterprises is hiring sales professionals across the country in a variety of roles.
As one of America’s most successful, privately-held organizations, Cox Enterprises generates more than $20 billion in revenue and has business operations across Cox Communications, Cox Automotive and Cox Media Group.
And their sales team is at the forefront of many of those operations.
More than just a cable company
At Cox Communications, sales careers exist within Business to Business sales, retail sales, indirect sales and outside sales. With more than 30 locations across the U.S., Cox offers their business to business Account Executives, in particular, fantastic benefits, true work-life balance and a lucrative commission structure.
But that’s not the only reason why their Account Executives love working at Cox.
“Our people have a passion for selling our solutions to their customers,” said Mark Salkeld, Talent Acquisition Manager. “In a lot of ways, our solutions provide the infrastructure behind a lot of local businesses and startups that rely on our High-Speed Internet, cable and security to service their customers and grow their own revenues.”
And, Salkeld said, connecting people is their M.O.
“We connect people to the things they love,” he said. “Our Account Executives know there are no ‘one size fits all’ business solutions, so that’s why they spend most of their time traveling locally, building genuine client relationships to match the needs and goals of the small business.”
A world of opportunity
Whether you’re an experienced sales leader or a recent graduate, Cox provides the opportunity to climb the career ladder or pivot across businesses. For example, Cox Media Group, the media division of Cox Enterprises, provides an abundance of training for sales professionals to sell ad space across their multi-platformed channels in digital media, radio, TV and newspapers.
“We have a unique approach to hiring sales talent,” said Ralph Renzi, General Manager of Cox Media Group Miami. “We don’t evaluate solely on skills but more on natural capability in building relationships, working collaboratively on a team, and quickly learning the business.”
As well, the company values its employees and takes care of them, said Renzi.
“We offer a healthy work-life balance, unmatched benefits package, wellness programs and an incredibly rewarding experience that recognizes the top one percent of sales contributors with exclusive perks,” he said.
In her 20+ years with the company, Senior Talent Acquisition Manager Lori Gurule-Rat describes Cox as a place to stay and grow.
“Cox has such a large footprint in major cities from Miami to Seattle and when it comes to helping others, our actions speak volumes,” she said. “We believe in rolling up our sleeves to go the extra mile in serving our communities and our clients in order to make the world a better place.”
With a hiring spree well-underway for tech talent, Cox Automotive is also drawing sales professionals to fuel their technology and automotive businesses.
From sales representatives to technical service representatives, client trainers, and even performance managers, the sales and client service teams at Cox Automotive are entrepreneurial. They are responsible for growing customer relationships with auto dealers who need solutions for web and digital marketing, floor planning and product education.
Family-owned and operated for over 120 years, Cox is an award-winning company – both for its products and as an employer. And, with sales career opportunities across its $20 billion enterprise, it seems like a natural fit for talented sales professionals in search of a new home.
