    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    (2) Weeks vacation first year of employment, (3) Weeks vacation after three years of service, on and on thereafter. Snap-On Tools product discount is very generous. If your are hired in a position that requires travel, this employer will allow you to retain all of your loyalty points with all the lodging, airline and car rental companies. Traditional perks assured. Management is very flexible with schedules. Compensation is competitive, considering former employers that I've worked for. Also the employee stock purchase program is great. It has allowed me to easily save money. I highly recommend this company to a person who is starting to come of age in their career. When you get hired at this company. Your friends and family will say "you work for a good company".

    Cons

    Some of the positions require a lot of travel. Frequent, extended amounts of travel 90-100% of your working weeks. You have to love the open road in order to be successful in any of the positions that require travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at this company works very hard. And they do a great job.

    I have been working at Snap-on as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees were very nice
    Interns were invited to all work functions and got holiday gifts
    Depending on your degree, there were always full-time job openings

    Interns didn't receive perks like FT (flu shots, benefits, etc.)
    Not always opportunities to grow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was a great office environment where the employees were all friendly. Everyone would smile and wave when walking down the hall and would always be willing to help you out.

    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work from home, flexibility, ability to make own schedule, great brand recognition. 401k, pension plan and stock buying options.

    Cons

    Need to improve technology tools available to sales reps. Recent changes to the commission structure do not support the current business trends or market outlook. Sales people wear too many hats which takes away from selling time. Compensation is 60 to 75k depending on territory. The car allowance compensation policy need to be restructure to reflect the job demands, gas prices, wear and tear on vehicle. The feeling among employees is that we no longer work for Snap-on or our to provide solutions to our customer needs; we now work for Wall Street.

    I have been working at Snap-on

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Guaranteed 40 hours a week, Awesome coworkers, Pay not bad, Lot of OT.

    Cons

    Hard to get ahead in the company, Once your hired in the company you can't bump a temporary employee from 1st shift to 2nd. I was hired on 1st shift and that's why I took the job because I wanted 1st shift but about 6 months after getting hired into the company I got transferred to 2nd and that is not the shift I had put in for and it also took me 18 months to get hired into the company. I was a temporary employee for 18 months. Also it seems hard for some management to say Job Well Done to their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees know how much they are Appreciated......

    Pros

    Great people, products and reputation.

    Cons

    Highly political environment that can inhibit good decision making

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a public company the focus is always on quarterly results. Would be beneficial to occasionally spend time on longer term strategies.
