As an Account Manager at C.H Robinson, your job is essentially an inside sales role. Your job is to maintain and grow existing business while also looking for additional leads for your sales team. Your accounts are not based on your location. For example, I was based out of Wichita, KS but managed accounts in Seattle, Phoenix, and Kansas City even though other C.H. Robinson offices were in those areas. Daily actives will consist of building rapport with your accounts, providing quotes, creating SOPs, and managing any supply chain questions your customers may have. You will also have the capability to travel outside of the office, with the company providing everything you need while you are traveling on business.

The day in the life of a Transportation Sales Account Executive is problem solving, working through customer complaints or issues, servicing customers, cold calling on accounts, following up on different issues. It’s challenging but they offer good support and training to help you be successful.
