The purpose of the 2014 Summer Carrier Sales Combine is to explore sales aspects of our growing 3PL. The 6-8 week program will provide you the opportunity to learn about and apply your business and communication skills in numerous fields within Coyote.
The Summer Combine will begin with a week long general training camp in which you will learn about our proprietary internal software program and industry specifics. Throughout your initial training session, you will have the opportunity to be exposed to the following roles before focusing in a specialized carrier position for the remainder of your summer:
Carrier Sales: Working collaboratively with a regionally designated team to drive revenue growth with new and existing carriers; negotiating rates and communicating internally and externally
Carrier Operations: Working directly with an established, high-producing Sales Representative to manage the daily operational tasks of the existing business, allowing his or her Sales Representative to continue to grow new business
Driver Services: Dispatching and Tracking carrier team freight while displaying superb customer service skills
While each role entails a unique set of tasks, you will have the opportunity to utilize, display, and enhance a common set of skills including multi-tasking, attention to detail, confident decision-making skills, effective communication skills, supreme customer service skills, relationship-building, enthusiasm, organization, and teamwork. You will also have the opportunity to work with a variety of different managers and team members while under the overall supervision of a designated mentor.
