Sales representatives sell goods for wholesalers or manufacturers to businesses, government agencies, and other organizations. They contact customers, explain product features, answer any questions that their customers may have, and negotiate prices.
Many companies have formal training programs for beginning wholesale and manufacturing sales representatives that last up to 1 year.
