Sales at P&G is business-critical, far-reaching, and ever-evolving. It’s the link between our innovative products, strategic marketing, customer partners, and consumers’ lives. Roles vary by brand, market, and season, but teams typically include sales account managers, sales administrators, and sales representatives at various levels.

From Day 1 on the team, you’ll work with our biggest customers, including Walmart, Tesco, Amazon, Alibaba, and Carrefour, to develop creative sales strategies to grow the business in an impactful and sustainable way. You’ll draw on our unparalleled depth and breadth of consumer data using innovative tools to develop smart, in-store marketing and merchandising solutions that present our brands in new and interesting ways. And you’ll combine these experiences with our world-class training to help you develop into a P&G leader.

As well as working closely with our customers, you’ll also work cross-functionally, especially with P&G Brand Management, because you will be a link between their marketing campaigns, your customers, shoppers, and our products. The close relationship between our two teams means a role with P&G Brand Management may be of interest to you.

Peter, customer manager, sales

I joined P&G as a summer intern and then became a full-time team member a year ago—and it’s been a year full of learning.

The work is enjoyably challenging, no two days are ever the same, you’ll work with and meet a lot of different people, and there can be a lot of travel involved.

There are many roles within our team—in fact, about 10% of our employees work in P&G Sales. Job titles vary from market to market and company to company, so be sure to read job descriptions to get a clear understanding of what’s involved. That said, if you’re interested in being a sales account manager, account executive, account director, key account manager, channel sales manager, sales analyst, sales executive, sales representative, field sales manager, or similar, we’re sure to have what you’re looking for at P&G.

P&G has a robust and thorough hiring process. In addition, some experienced sales professionals may also be asked to complete the Sales Virtual Job Preview.

This is a quiz we ask some experienced professionals to complete as part of the application process. It helps P&G learn more about your sales knowledge, skills, and experience. This information will be used to evaluate how well your particular qualifications and abilities meet the specific criteria required for successfully performing the job for which you applied. For more information, view the P&G Sales Virtual Job Preview PDF.

You should ask questions at any interview, not just for any specific role. Always come prepared with some pointed questions, and then add any that you think of during the interview. By asking questions, you’ll find out information that may not be on our website or in our job posting. It’s also a good way to get a personal opinion from a P&Ger, or hear about their personal experiences. Be specific: for example, “How many brands will I work on as a P&G Sales Manager?” Other questions could include “What is the career path like at P&G?” or “Does P&G offer childcare?” Remember to do your research so that you’re not asking questions that are readily available on the P&G careers or corporate website.

P&G Sales is focused on building relationships with customer and retail partners such as CVS, Amazon, Carrefour, etc. and working closely with them to implement innovative sales strategies that ultimately improve sales figures. Marketing at P&G (which falls within P&G Brand Management which is much larger than simply marketing) is about building awareness of brands and products by communicating to consumers through TV, social media, DM, and other media. P&G Sales and P&G Brand teams often work together to create robust, holistic strategies, but their responsibilities are separate and very different.
