Our Sales Agents come from various backgrounds and we have many successful Agents that do not have sales or wine industry experience, so this is not a requirement, but a plus. Our comprehensive training program will assist those that are inexperienced. We do find, however, that our top sales performers all have the following skills and abilities:
• A track record of success in selling wine directly to consumers over the phone or in-person (i.e. retail setting, tasting room, and restaurant) is helpful, but not required
• Computer literacy
• Excellent verbal and written communication skills
• Must be team-oriented, highly energetic, multi-tasker, self-motivated and punctual
• Work exclusively out of our office in Napa, this is not a telecommuting role.
Full-time, part-time, flex-time positions available
What makes Wine Leverage different from any other company in our industry is our unparalleled focus on our Agents and continued contribution to their success. Here is what you can count on from us:
• Base salary (including Vacation, Sick and Holiday pay) plus commission (paid bi-monthly) as well as performance based incentives including bonus paid bi-annually and campaign-specific sales competitions
• Health/dental/vision after 60 days.
• Wine incentives - approximately $2000.00 per year
