Taylor here again, back in the Montreal office for our final rotation. We started and are finishing our unreal GMT rotations here in the Montreal office. It’s been another great time here, spending lots of time with the sales rep and working on yet another great project. Though our time in Montreal has been great, we did have to say bye to 2 great friends while here. Darren and I had the incredibly sad day on December 1st, saying bye to our Movember Moustaches.
Here in Montreal the market is different than the rest of Canada. In Quebec beer can be sold in any grocery store, gas station or corner store. With this comes a complex delivery and order system that we got to experience firsthand with the sales reps. With beer being sold in large box grocery stores like Costco the displays we can set up are endless. One morning a rep and I set up a 4 pallet display of Bud and Bud Light right in the entrance to a local grocery store. I can honestly say, setting up that display was enough of a workout to skip the gym that day, and that was just our first store out of 5 we needed to complete.
Montreal has 2 major universities so needless to say our weekends have been full of getting back to our university roots and enjoying the endless nightlife around. We have one final week here in Montreal then we get to be reunited with the US GMTs for a few weeks in St. Louis. If this next few weeks together are anything like our Zone and Global Inductions were then it’s going to be another amazing experience!
Until next time, have a great holiday season and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
