    Pros

    Excellent place to work. Great Management in Southeast area Fair salary with above average benefits including 401k AND pension Develop good relationships with retailers Company gives you all the tools you need to be successful (car, computer, training, etc).

    Cons

    I've heard some horror stories of managers who micro-manage and ruin rep's lives, though I never personally experienced it. It depends on the manager. Promotion requires a great relationship with your immediate manager, who is your sole hope of upper mobility. Company sold to competition, so this review is now pointless Company dress-code for sales reps requires you to wear a tie, even in 100+ degree heat

    Advice to Management

    Relax the dress code… Sales rep's don't earn enough to afford all the dress shirts we ruin by working in some of our more dirty retail accounts. More interaction with the company. Meetings, conventions, etc. Allow reps with more opportunities outside field sales.

    Pros

    Excellent training and support. The manager I worked for went above and beyond to assist his sales force. Communication was always very good.

    Cons

    The days could get long and the territory was very big. I would spend several hours every weekend getting everything ready for the next week.

    Pros

    Company Car, Great Benefits, Great Pay. This is an incredible opportunity for anyone who is not afraid of a little hard work. You must have a road warrior heart and be willing to develop relationships with store personnel of all cultures and backgrounds. It's not as much of a sales position than it is a merchandising and inventory position.

    Cons

    There's not a lot of room for advancement in this particular position. You are welcome to apply to other job categories, but there is little room for advancement in sales, that is of course unless your district or regional sales manager retires. Other con .. future of tobacco industry is in question ...

    Pros

    Historically generous salary and benefits. No lay-offs in the past, Lean company that can make decisions quickly when prudent. Not a lot of red tape.

    Cons

    Pending acquisition by RAI and transfer of employees and facilities to Imperial Tobacco. Uncertainty for some employees which company they will work for after acquisition is complete and what salary/benefits will be.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate and consider a retention bonus - very talented and skilled employees are likely to leave due to uncertainty for future salary and benefits.
