    Neutral opinion, whats good is great but low pay

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Howland Corners, OH

    ProsAwesome schedule, will work with anything you have going on: school, kids, appointments and the like. All members of management are approachable... a TRUE open door policy.

    ConsVery high turn over, I am fearful if this is the day I will be let go, every day i go in. I am into my fifth week and have seen more than 10 people let go, and even more than that just stop showing up within their first and second week. Sales is difficult and not for everybody. Pay is min wage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more time to coach your reps.

    Positive about the future

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Malvern, PA

    ProsI have been able to work with some autonomy and grow the business segments within the realm of my responsibility. My role has not changed, but I have been able to better define the role and increase expectations and results. I enjoy those I work with, am challenged to by the fact there is more I can do to improve processes towards increasing revenue for the company and my division.

    ConsLow salary, but have been able to grow income through incentives.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
