Three months into my placement in Cincinnati as a Category Insights Analyst, I feel as though I’ve worked at Kraft Heinz for years. I support the Sauces and Frozen Business and for the past three months I have worked diligently to create an analytic suite to help my team be efficient as possible. I’ve learned our business inside and out through the combined use of several national analytics programs and our retailer’s database. It is extremely rewarding being able to help answer any questions that my sales team has, and answer questions from the internal brand and insights teams at corporate. My role exposes me to multiple different teams and functions of our company on a daily basis.
It is hard to believe that we only have one month left in the Sales Management Trainee Program. Next month, we will travel to Chicago to officially graduate from the program. I am so excited to continue to grow and learn as I finish the program, and am confident that I will be fully trained and prepared to succeed.. We will actually be traveling quite a bit in the next month, between graduation and the National Sales Meeting. In a few short weeks everyone in my program along with all of the Kraft Heinz Sales Teams will travel to Chicago for a two-day meeting. It will be a great opportunity to meet coworkers who we have only corresponded with over the phone. It will also be great to reconnect with everyone in my program in person, and share our experiences.
