    Pros

    There are no Pros Here, you will get screwed

    Cons

    Management could care less if you work hard to try & to get promoted ,If you are not one of the good old boys your S.O.L Management at Plant level needs to be looked at, along with HR
    they THINK THEY CAN GET OVER ON EVERYONE, You can not trust anyone there,

    Pros

    In this evergrowing economy this is one job that will always be around so the only reason you could loose this job rests on your own shoulders. Mangement is reasonable with their demands and expectations.

    Cons

    Sometimes you will work more than 40 hours a week but there is no con i really found with this job in the past 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a great job Bobby, Lee, Amber & Clint.

    Pros

    There are no pros working for this company

    Cons

    In the piedmont NC area. Branch Managent and Assistant Mgmt.are either kin or best buddies. And if they have a friend who wants a job, they will start harassing a worker that they have no liking for in hopes they will quit. Their most used words are, I'm going to fire you., I'm going to write you up, Total verbal harrassment every day and hour you are on the job. Very much a imtimidating and hostile company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to put their friendship aside that they have with the Branch Management and listen more to the workers.

    Pros

    Money can be good. Working without a supervisor watching over me(When they are not out to get you.) Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    No benefits. 24/7 on call. Poor communication from sales management. Complicated pay checks(Too many unexplained charges/changes.) Sales management started to really try and dictate our schedules in 2011.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate directly to distributors and not through sales managers. Stop micromanaging distributors.
