District Sales Manager
A District Sales Manager (DSM) at Dot Foods is our outside/field sales person, who primarily calls on foodservice distributors to increase our number of product lines and line items to those customers. The DSM also makes calls on brokers and supplier direct reps, in a spirit of cooperation and teamwork, to increase our mutual sales. The DSM works for a Dot Regional Sales Manager (RSM) and with a Dot Customer Service Representative (CSR) to acquire new business and service current customers. DSMs are assigned a specific territory, and work either from home or in Dot’s St. Louis, Missouri, sales office.
Since we believe strongly in promoting from within, the DSM position is often a stepping-stone to Dot’s Business Development Manager position.
