Day in the Life: RV Sales Associate Program (Week 1)

It’s 9am on a Monday morning, and I’m sitting in the lobby of Red Ventures HQ, eagerly awaiting my very first day of work out of college. While I wait, I prepare myself with a quick mental pep-talk – and 6 shots of espresso (oops). I remember feeling overwhelmed with happiness as I waited for the day to start. There’s just nothing more energizing than being surrounded by other young adults who are eager to succeed and grow their careers (and also, espresso).

Next, Dayne, Sean, David, and Josh greeted us, and all twenty-one of us “Sales Savages” went around the room to introduce ourselves. We got the full tour to understand exactly how Red Ventures builds technology and uses data insights to funnel high-value customers to our sales center, and we met several senior leaders on the sales and sales support side — including the co-founder of the company, Dan Feldstein. Throughout the week, we continued to study the RV business model and began training on the RV Sales Process. My brain is still absorbing the boatload of information we were exposed to that first week.

On Friday, our task was to explore RV, meet more people outside of our cohort, and learn about RV’s culture and history through a social media Scavenger Hunt. Things… got a little out of hand.

Knocking out pins like we’re going to knock out those sales goals! #rvscavengerhunt

Beer at Big View $4.99. Lunch $9.99. Sitting on Ric’s couch? Priceless. #rvscavengerhunt FYI Ric and Dan met at Sendant. And Mark used to be Ricks boss. Thanks to Alex (Ric’s assistant) for the 411.
