Big J Mart
DescriptionFounded in 2008, Big J Mart is one of the Internets largest and fastest growing online drop shippers, soon to offer over 3 million wholesale prices items to retail stores around the globe. Founded on the core values that quality people are our strength, we believe that anyone has the potential to grow with Big J Mart Stores, Inc.
Drop shipping is a supply chain management technique in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock, but instead transfers customer orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer, bypassing the retailer in order to grow profits. As in retail businesses, the majority of retailers make their profit on the difference between the wholesale and retail price but some retailers earn an agreed percentage of the sales in commission, paid by the wholesaler to the retailer.
Big J Mart is currently seeking interns to help grow the business to a new level. Working for Big J Mart not only offers you the flexibility and a relaxed work schedule, but the opportunity to grow within your selected internship field with the company.
Big J Mart has planned on going incorporated, which means we are opening internship positions for our Home Office division, which consist of many virtual internship positions, such as this one. All of our internships are available remotely on the web and are available part-time as well as full-time, any season or semester (for students), and are also available for continued experience with your current job (for adults over 18 years old). We are seeking skilled people who are looking to reach their fullest potential through our vigorous internship program. With this internship, we allow our interns to use creativity and point of view to express feelings in the work they produce. Here at Big J Mart, no idea or comment will go unconsidered and in fact, we enjoy listening to your valuable feedback.
Big J Mart is committed in helping their interns through the complete process, overcoming problems, and helping them to grow to become the professional they want to become. Once completed, you will be provided with an official letter and statement from Big J Mart (including recommendation letters to unlimited employers) declaring a successful completion of the internship program.
For this internship, we are looking for willing interns who are passionate about the job they hold. We seek people who are energetic, self starters, and who are willing to grow. Successful hires will work closely with Big J Mart staff, and the CEO of the business. Candidates should have knowledge in the area that they are applying for.
ResponsibilitiesYour responsibilities will include:
- Using your provided training to determine good wholesalers to contact and recruit to Big J Mart
- Contacting wholesalers using wholesale directories (such as wholesalecentrail.com)
- Recruiting at least 2 wholesalers per week to the Big J Mart Markerplace
- Relaying sales information to the Big J Mart corporate office using email and phone
- Attending conference calls on a weekly basis
RequirementsDESCRIPTION OF POSITION:
For this position you will be required to browse the internet and wholesale directories in search for willing businesses to become partnered with Big J Mart. Currently Big J Mart is looking for businesses who are willing to offer their products for sale in the Big J Mart Marketplace (a membership only shopping site that offers low prices on merchandise). Once you find a wholesale business that is willing to include their products into Big J Mart, you will welcome them by walking through the induction process and application. Once the business is approved, they will be provided an Excel spreadsheet where they can add their products to be imported into the Big J Mart Marketplace. Once the wholesale items have been added to the online marketplace, retail stores (who have a membership) can resell the items on their own websites, shopping networks, eBay, Amazon, etc. Once a product sells on a retailers website, the order is passed along back to the original wholesaler for processing. The wholesaler will ship directly to the customer.
* Training on the above business model is provided on the job. Please allow up to 1 week for training.
In order to complete this internship successfully you will need to have:
- A high school GED or diploma
- 2 years of previous retail / business experience
