Route Sales Internship

Pilgrim Dry Cleaners has a unique opportunity for an internship! We are looking for a high energy, self-motivated sales intern to help grow our route business. This internship will be an excellent opportunity to work in a family business atmosphere, while at the same time developing skills that could translate to future opportunities down the road.

This position can be either full-time or part-time! Flexible hours available including days, evenings, and weekends!

Primary responsibilities include the following:

  • Have a pre-determined selling area on a route to knock on doors and talk to as many potential new customers as possible. (Route Supervisor will assist with this)
  • Set up sales meetings with businesses to set up their office for dry cleaning delivery
  • Sign up new customers on the spot through face to face sales
  • Build leads that you check back on in a week, and create a list of your leads.
  • Use an app on a daily basis to keep track of sales, leads and new territories.
  • Set up a schedule with the director of routes on riding with drivers to see the potential on their routes. You will then follow that route, neighborhood to neighborhood in the following weeks to generate new business within the neighborhoods they are already in.
  • Contact dormant customers (over 90 days) to get them back on routes.
  • When Pilgrim Cleaners starts a new route, you will help develop the new route and receive bonuses when the new route reaches certain sales goals.
  • Build new wholesale accounts via high school band and choir uniforms and medical offices.

A company vehicle is provided and you must have a clean driving record.

This internship will pay $15.00 per hour plus incentives for obtaining new customers.
