Struggle to get by

Management Associate (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I have been working at Applied Industrial Technologies (Cleveland) full-time for less than a year

ProsVery relaxed work environment, not difficult or stressful work. It varies from branch to branch, but friendly people for the most part.

Finally switched to an ERP that works, but the average age at this company is 60 years old and no one has a clue how to use it.

ConsVery few people are motivated at this company, namely inside sales. Without strong leadership, the lack of motivation from the people on the inside really hurts outside salesmen.

They do not pay cost of living, it is a serious struggle to get by. The incentives/bonuses they tell you to expect each month are never close to what they estimate they will be. The fact is that this company pays terribly and unless you are given accounts to cover your base salary (which is extremely rare) you are going to go into subsidy for the first few years of working here... making it very difficult to get into the black. Outside salesmen who have 20-30+ years experience are still making under 75k. The pay structure is horrendous, they market the job as a salaried position, and you come to find out it's a draw after being there for 4 months.

Terrible culture, awful relationships between employees, embarrassing in front of customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere's a decent work-life balance, but pay employees cost of living at a minimum. I've been working here almost a year and haven't been able to put a dime into savings, and wasn't able to give my family presents for christmas. If it wasn't for some investments I made before working here, I'd be on the streets right now.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
