    The Sales Trainee (ST) is a training role.

    Upon successful participation in the training program, the ST is eligible to interview for open Account Sales Manager (ASM) roles.

    Upon completion of the program and certification, if no ASM or otherwise qualified role is available AND the ST is meeting performance standards, the employee may remain in the ST role up to 12-months OR until an ASM or another qualified role is available (whichever comes first).

    Once an ASM or another qualified role is available, the certified ST must interview for that available role.

    If promotion to the role of ACCOUNT SALES MANAGER (or other role) does not happen prior to the expiration of the 12-mos completion period, the SALES TRAINEE role will be vacated due to end of assignment unless an exception applies.

    For exception, based on continued high performance, no open roles and certification completion, a manager may extend the 12-month completion period an additional 6-months.

    The ST role is an at-will position, meaning that the Company or ST can terminate the employment relationship at any time, for any reason or no reason at all, with or without cause.
