Warman’s, the makers of office materials, had advertised for a travelling salesman. Mr Barlow applied for the job, and soon afterwards was invited to the company head office to meet MR. Snell, the sales manager. Mr. Snell asked Mr. Barlow what experience he had as a salesmen.
“ I worked as a salesman for a brush company until six months ago. I sold brushes, dusters, tins of polish, things like that. I went from door to door selling direct to housewives” Mr. Snell then asked him why he had left the job. “Well to be honest, it was very hard work” Mr. Barlow replied. “ it meant walking sometimes six or eight miles a day. But the real reason for leaving was I didn’t think very highly of the goods that I was selling, and that made difficult for me to be sincere when I had to tell housewives what wonderful. Brushes they were. I knew perfectly well they wouldn’t last beyond a month.What’s more, they pay was rather poor. I realized after a while that I wouldn’t be able to support a family on the money I was earning.
“I see, “said Mr. Snell. “so what did you do the next ?”
“For the last six month I have been a salesman in a department store” said Mr. Barlow.
“And do you think you could sell Warman’s office materials with a clear conscience?” Mr. Snell asked. “Do you think you could be sincere about selling the papers, ink, copying machines and so on that we produce here?” Mr. Barlow said that he could, that Warmans’s office materials enjoyed a very high reputation, and that in his department at Caldwell’s he sold almost nothing else. He said that he had always wanted to work for a big company with a good name, to travel all over the country selling goods to the other companies, rather than to houswives on the doorstep and – he added with a smile – to enjoy the money and the working conditions offered with the job for which he had applied.
“Mr. Barlow,” said Mr. Snell, “Do you have a clean driving license ?” “yes I do, “Mr. Barlow replied. “Than as long as your medical examination proves to be satisfactory, I’m quite prepared to offer you the job. “Mr. Snell got up and shook Mr. Barlow by the hand. “Congratulations” he said, “and welcome to Warman’s”
