Training & Professional Development: Your initial training consists of a well-blended mix of on-the-job training, learning the suite of the company packaging products, equipment, systems, and processes, learning the internal organization of teams and associates that make the company so successful as a world leading packaging company, and learning company clients, customers, the overall business, and industry at-large. A large chuck of your training will consist of shadowing experienced technical service reps and becoming certified for your independent technical service as a representative on your own. This typically takes a year or more but can vary depending on your experience level and progress. Long-term growth takes place through promotion to increased technical levels along with opportunities to grow and promote into the manufacturing side of the company's business and company.
