We assign all sales representatives to a protected territory. This area is based on your physical location. Typically, a rep will initially be given a 5 to 8 county area to work within. As you grow in the position, your territory will grow with you.

Our human resources team will review your application and resume to determine next steps. If you are chosen to move forward to the next step in our selection process, you will be contacted via email about how to set up a phone interview. Following a phone interview, we will invite a select few to come to Minnesota for an in-person interview.
We believe this is the only way to get a true picture of our company and position. We need to fit your values and expectations just as much as you need to fit ours. If the interview goes well, you do stay for one additional day to kick off your career with some training! Seeing our facility and meeting our staff is something that can only be experienced by actually visiting our AKE headquarters.
