Prospective Staff Members

We appreciate your interest in applying for and potentially being part of The SFVU BUSINESS GROUP’s national pro-staff program. As you can see from the research you have already completed to have gotten this far as well as having already reviewed our programs rewards and incentives, we take your role very seriously and hope that you are willing to do just the same in your part as a potential pro staff member, first in this application and review portion, and eventually once selected, as an important part of the SFVU pro staff team.

The SFVU pro staff program has been primarily set-up for those individuals who are looking to enter into or advance in the fishing industry without leaving their current careers. Whether you are just a weekend angler who loves being involved in this sport or you are a full-time tournament participant wanting to move even further along in your career, this program has something for you, whether you fish locally, regionally or nationally. The SFVU Business Group is a multi diverse company with numerous divisions all dedicated to the advancement of the fishing industry, and as such, we have far more to offer than any one single line business towards the advancement of your career in this industry. A critical component of our success and image is reliant on supporting those recreational fisherman, tournament anglers and guides who carry themselves with the highest of integrity, steadfastness to their faith and who are always working for the betterment of the sport through active support of family, youth, the disadvantaged and conservation related activities. We also look for team players who can actively work in close coordination with other SFVU pro-staff members as well as are accountable to our Regional and National managers. Your attitude and how you carry and represent yourself is far more important to us than you’re fishing accomplishments. The promotion of The SFVU Business Group, our group of Flagship Dealers and our great team of manufacturers is critical to your success as a pro-staffer. As you will see, you are rewarded on a performance oriented basis and the more you do that directly relates to the advancement of SFVU and our manufacturers, the more you get.

While the SFVU PRO-STAFF program offers significant discounts on product and apparel as well as tournament cash incentives, annual free product allotments, annual cash stipends, free gas cards, boat and truck wraps, etc…, it is not for everyone. If you want something for nothing, SFVU and the manufacturers we represent will not be able to help you. Secondly, if you are just looking to jump from one product line this year to the next best deal next year, please do not proceed. All pro-staff members are legally contracted and sign a loyalty agreement which means you need to be serious about your role in this sport.

The SFVU Business Group is loyal to only one manufacturer per industry vertical so it only goes to say that we look for our pro-staff to work towards switching over and remaining loyal in use and promotion to these manufacturers, those being: Kistler Rods, Solar Bat Sunglasses, All Terrain Tackle “Technique Specific” Jigs, Mizmo Tubes, McCoy Line and Braid, Penetrater Tungsten Weights, RoboWorm Hand Poured Soft Plastics, Secret Weapon Spinnerbaits & Buzzbaits, JC’s Lures Blade Baits and Custom Hair Jigs, as well as Hooks from the any of the TTI – Blakemore Fishing Group which are Daiichi Bleeding Red, X-Point, Stand-Out Drop Shot or Tru-Turn. We realize there is an educational component to becoming comfortable with our complete line of offerings from all the above manufacturers so we offer two immediate ways to do this initially. Number one is the optional requirement to get a pro-staff starter kit that you can purchase at well below wholesale and well below your normal tier level discount that gives you a handpicked selection of models, colors and sizes of tackle from all our manufacturers. These kits feature the most commonly used lures across the US and guarantee you will get a better understanding of the quality and value of what you will be representing. Number two, in consideration of the potential cost to beginning the switch over of your tackle to our featured manufacturers, we offer any candidate, once selected as an official SFVU pro-staff member, an extra 10% off their authorized Tier Level discount during their 1st 60 days of activity to help accomplish this.

To be officially considered, you will need to complete the following online application, which will be reviewed by our national management team as well as regional review staff. Please make sure to completely fill out all sections and include any additional information or comments that might help for SFVU to see what type of person you are and why we should select you?

(Please be patient on the review process, we typically receive between 300-500 applications every couple weeks and while that amount can be daunting, don’t let that number intimidate you, all applicants are fairly and efficiently screened and each applicant is guaranteed a formal response)

SFVU Pro-Staff program standards apply for one fiscal year starting January 1st and ending December 31st - No “grandfathering in” allowed from previous years programs. Qualification from previous year will hold discount level awarded up to December 31st of following year only. SFVU Pro-Staff program can be changed bi-annually at the discretion of The SFVU Business Group management and all pro-staff members MUST make written declaration of desire to continue for the next year before March 1st via signed binding contractual letter of intent, countersigned by the SFVU VP of Operations as well as the President & CEO of The SFVU Business Group.

SFVU Pro-Staff members who receive any cash and/or promotional product where value exceeds $600.00 will receive a 1099-Misc for that fiscal year. Any product awarded or purchased via pro-staff discount is to be used solely for personal use or demonstration – absolutely no selling of SFVU represented manufacturers product to any individual buyer is allowed by SFVU Pro-Staff. Our flagship dealers and any of our 10 featured manufacturers have the right to request immediate dismissal of any individual, at any time, which is found not to meet the ethical standards required to be an effective pro staff representative. The SFVU Business Group has the right to null and void any contract of any pro-staff member where that individual is found to be in sponsorship, support or promotion of a competing company within the same industry vertical.
