My motivation for becoming a sales representative was primarily a thirst for industry knowledge. Working with several manufacturers gives me daily exposure to many product applications that I did not experience while I was working as a factory-direct salesperson for one manufacturer. I also do not get that exposure by passing out literature or visiting uninitiated buyers; I become knowledgeable by talking with operations personnel responsible for solving critical wiring problems.
Independent representatives and factory salespeople have equal access to their manufacturers` engineers so any technical question can be immediately answered.
Let`s advise the uninitiated buyer to evaluate individual salespeople for their quality of service and integrity. People of good character will most likely do what`s right for their customers.
