Adventures of the sales chap



Sameer has the lowdown on the page 3 life of a sales guy in Eastern Uttar Pradesh. So all you MBAs with FMCG dreams, pay attention...

Story of a Sales Trainee...

Welcome to regional Office...

Landing up in the market ...

Some gems from the posts:

Here hierarchies are sacrosanct. We have people of all ages and capability, some 23 year olds, some having experience of 23 years in the company, at the same level and reporting to the same person. You can’t treat everyone equal.

‘Information is Power and; it can’t be shared with everybody, again a stark contradiction to our IT geeks where open source community is now taking over the
world.

Now you find some one cribbing his life; some one cribbing his parents for his life; some one abusing the market; some one abuing the distributors for this kind of market. Basically in the end saying “Ganda hai par Dhandha hai yeh” (It's dirty, but it's business)
