What does a Field Manager do?

Field managers oversee, supervise, and evaluate employees in the field and customers' homes. They work in a range of industries, including heating systems, internet technology, Emergency Medical Services, the nonprofit sector, and others. They hire, train, and oversee representatives, supervising them on-site and directing their operations while they are in the field. They assign staff members territories, schedules, and appropriate supplies and equipment. They travel to sites and evaluate field representatives, generating reports that highlight the strengths and weaknesses of field representatives.

Field managers help employees improve and track their progress by creating plans and strategies while following through to ensure they have implemented agreed-upon tips and tools. They submit generated reports to human resources and provide training programs to field representatives to perform their duties effectively. They maintain field rules and responsibilities, ensure representatives adhere to the rules and respond to on-call tasks. Field managers schedule maintenance and repair for fleet vehicles and need a bachelor's degree in business management, administration, or related fields.
