Sales-force management practices(e.g., selection, training, rewards, evaluation) constitute a crucial aspect of the sales force control system, as they influence on the salesperson's role ambiguity, satisfaction and performance. But it is difficult to find studies on the effects of hotel's sales force control system. So, we studied about this subject more deeply. The purpose of our research is to examine important relationships among sales force control system(e.g., sales territory design, training, reward, training, supervisor's support), job attitudes(satisfaction and role ambiguity), and sales force performance. A conceptual model is presented and hypotheses are developed. This study contributes to sales management research of hotel sales person in some important ways. This study offers new insights both to sales practitioners and researchers. First, this study introduces a new approaching method for developing new model of hotel sales-force research. Second, in the practical implications, managers should take actions as like an encouragement, direction, monitering, and education of sales know-how to reduce the employee's role ambiguity and to improve job satisfaction and sales performance.
