There are four levels of training that each employee goes through prior to qualifying for upper-level management: Marketing and Sales, Account Management, Training, and Assistant Management. Starting new hires at the entry-level Marketing and Sales roles allow team members to learn how to properly represent a client, learning the basics of the brand and how to broadcast its important features.
As an Account Manager, each employee builds on that foundation, is able to manage one account and is responsible for the sales and in-store marketing of the client.
In order to move into the position of Trainer, each team member must show developed skills in leadership and begin to manage more than one client.
Lastly, as an Assistant Manager their responsibilities shift to behind-the-scenes, where they learn how to properly scout talent, learn business financials and manage the continued growth and expansion of clients.
Although Hagler and Associates is a marketing firm it welcomes candidates from all backgrounds to join their team.
