Seed Sales & Service
Resor Seeds, a Chillicothe Missouri Seed company and part of a growing network of ProHarvest Brand seed distributors, will be adding a Seed Specialist in the spring of 2017.
Job Location: Chillicothe, Missouri
Job Description: The Seed Specialist will be expected to assist the current owner is servicing existing customers in addition to developing new accounts. The seed specialist will visit current customers and their fields during the growing season to evaluate product placement, performance and customer satisfaction. The seed specialist will spend about 50% of their time during the growing season and 75% of their time during the winter prospecting to develop new customer accounts across Livingston and the neighboring Missouri counties. The Seed Specialist may be required to spend some days helping our warehouse manager in the warehouse.
Job requirements: A BS degree in agriculture with proven sales experience is preferred, but we would be willing to hire and train 2017 college graduates. We would also consider training an applicant without seed experience as long as they had significant work history dealing with grain farmers. More experience, especially in production, agriculture, ag-chem, animal health, fertilizer, seed, agriculture equipment or finance industry could substitute for the BS degree.
Applicant must have and maintain an excellent driving record, excellent communication and writing skills, basic computer skills, and sufficient health and strength to handle 50-60 pound bags of seed. Expect to work ½ of the Saturdays during planting season and some Saturdays during harvest.
Compensation Package: Our starting compensation package would be based on experience and qualifications. Compensation would include base salary, commission, paid vacation. Compensation package would be $36-80,000. A recent college graduate would likely start at the lower end of the range but would be expected to make enough sales to be at the upper end of the range within four (4) years.
