My name is Dario (28) and I started my career with P&G in Vienna with a 3 months internship in 2011. Initially, I wanted to do a “Gap-Year” between my Bachelor and Master degree to get professional experience in the field of Consulting, Social Projects & FMCG. Due to the positive experiences during my P&G Sales internship, I decided to join P&G Sales full time in Germany and thus skip the Master. This decision was triggered by the steep learning curve, trust and responsibility I experienced during my internship. I was leading two individual projects (category management & digital market research) that I presented to the customer as well as to P&G management.
After 4 weeks of retail experience, I started my full time position as Key Account Manager with experiences in the Drug channel for the categories Fabric & Homecare and Babycare as well as BeautyCare. I learned a lot about business strategies and their measures, promotions & customer relations. The different business models of this customer and the category dynamics created a continuously steep learning curve (incl. annual negotiations, product launches etc.). Following these two interesting years of challenges and successes, I did a 3 months sabbatical to fulfill my dream of travelling Central America.
Upon my return and since approx. 1 year, I have been the “Market & Strategy Planning Manager” for the brand Ariel in DACH. This position is an internal sales role in a multifunctional team. I am primarily responsible for promotions, pricing, instore & the introduction of new product initiatives at our customers. This is done in close alignment with our European Headquarter in Geneva.
Overall, P&G builds its employees through immediate business responsibility, trust and accountability. On the job training is paired with intensive coaching of direct, experienced superiors and chosen mentors as well as an individually designed training curriculum.
To sum up: P&G is a great place to work and we are looking forward to get in touch with you.
