Preferred Sales Associate
**Job Description:** Hi there, I'm Lou, a Preferred Sales Associate here at Bank of America. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do. As a Preferred Sales Associate, I represent the bank, but I also work to find the best products and services for the person on the other end of the line. It's my job to help educate clients of the breadth of services that Bank of America offers to maximize their financial well-being. As part of the Preferred Sales line of business, it is my main responsibility to act as the primary inbound contact for our most valuable consumer clients. Responsibilities would include accepting inbound calls to answer questions about new products and services to our clients. In my role, I have an opportunity to work closely with our most important customers, learn about our new products and initiatives, meet and introduce our customers to specialists in other areas of our bank. The best part of my job is being in an exciting and high-energy environment. My team is driven and fun, whether we're in the office or in our community. We do a lot of volunteer work and care deeply about social issues-like partnering with (RED) to help end AIDS in Africa. The company supports us every step of the way. They have our backs with benefits too: parental leave, tuition reimbursement, career development and more. Being a Preferred Sales Specialist is challenging, but between building trust with our clients and developing meaningful internal relationships, it's never boring and always rewarding. If Sales with Bank of America sounds like your next challenge, please apply.
