    Pros

    Employee camaraderie was great, employees received a lot of face time with the branch manager and regional manager.

    Cons

    Branch manager never really outlined performance expectation, employee turnover was fairly high.

    Advice to Management

    Train the new branch managers more before sending them to an existing branch.

    The work experience is great. People at cororate are awesome and very helpful. Safety dept. is an great help and really seems to care.

    Most people that have been here for a very long time do not like change. Some upper manager do not care about field employees. Pay is not worth the hassel.

    Pros

    If you are within or under a solid manager you will learn a great deal about all aspects of business and be given exceptional opportunities within your first 5 years with the company.

    Cons

    Seems to be a ceiling once you reach branch manager level as there is a bottle neck of qualified individuals who are waiting for the baby boomer generation to move on and out of upper tiers of management. While Poolcorp is one of the leaders in the pool industry their overall technical infrastructure is 2 decades behind todays business environment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new technical infrastructure and make for positions and compensation that will keep MIT's until regional manager positions, and above, open in the next decade.

    Pros

    Good beginning money, great relationships with customers, and once you get a hang of the computer system its pretty easy to do most things

    Cons

    Haphazard training and safety orientation, barely happened for me. Some customers expect you to know everything right off the bat and tell them how to do their jobs. Felt pressured into constant movement even when others were dicking around b/c I was lower in the totem pole. Some management will mess with your standing to further themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Follow up on training employees and consider adjusting your local budgets to help keep the good ones, keep more of an openness toward mental health issues. Healthy mind, Healthy Body, Healthy employee.

    Pros

    You're a decision maker and what you do influences the market. You get to help people run their companies and act as a consultant. Expense account.

    Cons

    They do not pay you enough. There are opportunities for advancement, if you go where you are needed. Very demanding goals, and much of your performance is weather related.
