Lakeshore Beverage is a Chicagoland beverage distributor that’s deeply passionate about beer, cider and wine.

This is an Entry-level PAID internship, with NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED!

The ideal candidate will have strong interpersonal skills and will be motivated to advance—success in this position can lead to an opportunity for a full-time position within the company.


This position's sales territories are located in Arlington Heights, Bloomington, and Chicago, IL. The sales intern will travel to their sales territories’ Lakeshore Beverage location for monthly meetings and other occasional business needs.

The Sales Intern is expected to learn and master the Company’s internal sales processes and procedures in order to effectively mirror the activities of the Account Sales Representative in monitoring and controlling inventory levels for each account, including restocking all coolers and in-store space and displays to provide maximum availability of products, while maintaining quality control and freshness standards. The Sales Intern is responsible for developing and maintaining strong, productive relationships with all customers to facilitate sales.


This internship pays $17/hour as well as a monthly cell phone reimbursement.
