Location: Mason, MI, US

Company: Dart Container

A cover letter is required in order to be considered for this position.

Dart Container is seeking a solid relationship-builder to join our Foodservice Account Management team. As an Account Manager, you will have the opportunity to work with a highly supportive and collaborate team that aims at developing its people and providing the tools needed to reach your highest career potential.

Dart’s Account Managers team up with our Sales Representatives (as well as other departments) in providing outstanding service to our customers through confident decision-making in regards to pricing, contracts and other service matters.

Day-to-Day Role:

  • Analyze information provided by Dart Sales Representatives pertaining to competitive products, competitive prices, and related terms and conditions of sale
  • Use a strong understanding of current market conditions (as well as Dart philosophy and policies) to assist in guiding decisions concerning customer pricing, shipping requirements, terms and conditions of sales, and contract and bid pricing
  • Communicate and explain, with supporting rationale, pricing decisions and company pricing policies as well as related terms and conditions of sale to Dart Sales Representatives and, on occasion, directly to customers
  • Evaluate and make decisions on sales requests regarding expenditures relating to distributor promotional and marketing activities, distributor trade show participation, and distributor requests for advertising support
  • Assist customers by resolving service related issues beyond the authority of Dart customer service representatives, and handle other service issues when sales representatives are unavailable and/or immediate action is required
  • Receive service reports from Dart Sales Representatives relating to product quality and/or customer service. Gather and analyze reported information and work with the Dart Salesforce to develop the optimal mutually acceptable solution for both the customer and Dart
  • Resolve issues associated with past due invoices and unauthorized payment deductions

  • Requires one of the following:
    • Bachelor’s Degree in Business or related field with at least (6) months of business-to-business work experience
    • Bachelor’s Degree with at least (2) years of business-to-business work experience

  • Organizational skills including the ability to prioritize workload to meet deadlines
  • Ability to effectively manage and execute multiple tasks, projects and priorities
  • Microsoft Word skills to include the ability to create reports containing graphs and other intermediate functions 
  • Microsoft Excel skills to include the ability to create spreadsheets (e.g., formulas such as V-lookup, graphs, pivot tables)
