European Rolling Shutters is looking for a driven and engaging Sales Consultant to join and grow with our company and team. For nearly 30 years, ERS has been providing protection, safety and comfort to homeowners in the greater Bay Area with our retractable awnings, shutters and solar screens.

We are unique in that we are the only company in California that manufacturers, installs and services these products all under one roof.

About Your Role in at ERS Shading:

You'll be driving quite often to homes throughout the Bay Area to discuss our products with homeowners. Your position is more educational for the homeowner than sales-focused - an important aspect to note. As a B2C consultant, you will be helping provide comfort and security to a home with a product that the homeowner is, oftentimes, unfamiliar with.

Our shading products are all custom-built and in-house, so the quality will often greatly exceed alternatives.

As an example, our rolling shutters and screens slide within a built in rail that holds the shutter in place in windy conditions and block more direct sunlight. This railing is not found on many competing products. This intimate knowledge of our product quality and the ability to express these qualities to homeowners is of utmost importance!

Daily Responsibilities:

Some company leads are provided to go out and visit potential clients at their home.

But a focus and desire to prospect for additional opportunities will be critical for success in this role.

This job requires daily driving throughout the Bay Area. You must be flexible and accommodating of the clients' schedules in order to be successful. This includes extended hours, evenings, and weekends.

Training is included with hourly pay, followed by base + commission + benefits.

In-a-Nutshell Summary:

  • Follow-up on all company leads (1 to 3 leads per day) via email and/or phone.
  • Prospect for additional leads/opportunities and sales
  • Schedule meetings, optimize travel routes, present products/solutions to prospective clients
  • Educate potential clients on benefits of exterior products and company (including financial benefits and ROI)
  • Take measurements on exterior windows, doors, decks, and patios
  • Write and present Proposal during 1st meeting
  • Contract closing
  • Follow-up and enter all info. into CRM (Salesforce)
  • Bring contract, photos and complete necessary paperwork after close
