As a IT Security Analyst for Wells Enterprises, my days would probably look like this:
My work day usually starts with an informal meeting with my group to go over our daily plans. Then I’ll have a meeting with various brand managers to see how our sales numbers compare to the sales goals we established. We’re always trying to find new ways to introduce our brands to more people, and keeping our name top of mind to the people who already know about us.
My work day in Research & Development is packed with all kinds of inclusions. (Haha) Sorry; just a little inside humor. Yeah, we experiment with lots of different flavors and ingredients, to see if they can work in our delicious ice cream and novelty products. We research and engineer different recipes and mixes to see if we’ve come up with something special. Maybe even a flavor that will be someone’s favorite one day. But one thing is for sure; if we’re going to put a product inside a Blue Bunny tub, you know it’s going to be delicious!
A typical day in the life of sales? No such thing. Every day and every week I’m finding new ways to get Blue Bunny on the shelf; more units and better placement. No two days seem alike. Some clients like the packaged ice cream. Some like the novelty ice cream. Some clients purchase a lot of Blue Bunny, and some clients buy mostly Bomb Pops. Many clients order both.
My days are spent in different places and are rarely the same. But if you’re interested in what a typical week involves, this might help give you a pretty accurate idea of what it’s like to be a Salesman:

wells was founded in 1913 by Fred H. Wells when he purchased a horse, a delivery wagon, a few cans and jars, and the good will of the business from Ray Bowers, a dairy farmer in Le Mars, Iowa -- all for $250. The original contract granted Fred H. Wells the milk distribution route and also guaranteed a source of raw milk from Mr. Bower's herd of fifteen milk cows.
Around 1925, Fred H. Wells and his sons began manufacturing ice cream in Le Mars, Iowa. As the popularity of their ice cream grew, they quickly branched out and began distributing their frozen confections in Remsen and Alton the following year. In 1927 Fred H. Wells and his brother, Harry C. Wells, began a partnership to distribute ice cream in Sioux City, Iowa, located about 25 miles south of Le Mars. In 1928 Fairmont Ice Cream purchased the ice cream distribution system in Sioux City from the Wells' brothers along with the right to use the Wells' name.
Seven years later, in 1935, the Wells' brothers decided to again sell ice cream in Sioux City. No longer able to use the name "Wells," the brothers decided to run a "Name That Ice Cream" contest in the Sioux City Journal. A Sioux City man won the $25 cash prize for submitting the winning entry, "Blue Bunny," after noticing how much his son enjoyed the blue bunnies in a department store window at Easter time.
Wells is now the world's largest family owned and managed ice cream producer. As the world's largest manufacturer of ice cream in one location, Wells has made Le Mars, Iowa, the "Ice Cream Capital of the World."
