    They have done everything possible to limit my income when I became a top sales person in the field.

    Independent Sale Representative (Current Employee)
    Poway, CA

    ProsYou set your own working hours. Mine are 5:30 AM to 8:00 pm

    ConsRaise my objective 185% because I was told I was paid to much last year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't have finance be in charge of your sales force. Don't have someone who is a short timer running a division only to make numbers off the back of their sales team. When they are gone your sales team that is left will be worthless.

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

    Executives, especially the CEO, continue to be overpaid while employees and former empolyees struggle

    (Former Employee)
    Kenosha, WI

    ProsFacility in Kenosha is decent. Area is a good place to raise family.

    ConsMorale extremely low, no work-life balance, employees get to read about overpaid senior executives while watching their co-workers lose their jobs and their homes. Sadly, so many families ripped apart due to work stress and/or lay-off stress. There is no way that the performance of the company can be attributed to the "talent" of one man. Snap-on is the only game in town and the employees give blood just to keep their jobs. The employees are the real reason for the company success, not the greed of the CEO. If you become disabled while employed there, their insurance company will take ALL of your dependent benefits from SSDI to pay themselves back for your benefits: this is in place because senior management decided to take a discount on premiums. Yes, this info is in teeny, teeny print on the benefits statement. What does the CEO care if a disabled employee can't send their children to college? If the company did not take the premium discount, thereby allowing disabled employees to keep their dependent SSDI benefits, the CEO would still find himself highly overpaid. That extra money in his pocket will make little difference in his life, but that employee's ability to send his/her children to college will make a huge difference in their's. So sad that the greed of the CEO has outweighed his concern for his employees, their families and the communities in which they live.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWant to watch morale and performance go way up? Take reasonable salaries, bonuses and stock comp for yourselves and ensure that more employees get to keep their jobs and their homes. Let them have work life balance so they can be there for their children.

    While you may be able to manage by fear and continue to replace burned out employees with anyone who desparately needs a job, what legacy are you really leaving? You are already set for life: give others a chance to have some work/life balance and be their for their children, their parents and their community. Don't you want your life to have meaning other than money?

    They have driven many talented experienced employees out forcing the remaining survivors to carry the load.

    Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    Prosname recognition- they make good tools.

    Consthe executive leadership within Snapon prides themselves in the beloved mission statement "Who we are" but implementation is somewhat lacking. They are driving the workforce with bullying tactics that are more juvenile than professional.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAbusive behavior does not drive improvement on the bottom line.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Best products in the industry
    Great teammates
    Cant think of much more Pros to this particluar job.

    ConsLow pay
    Low Commision

    ProsIt's nice to know that you're working for the number one manufacturer in the industry. Most of the products are made in the USA and the company boasts this as a selling point. Very proud organization.

    ConsThere is no such thing as a work-life balance in Snap-on. It's not uncommon for some management and sales staff to work 70 hours/week. The company continues to pay quarterly dividends to it's shareholders while locking down pay raises for its employees. Due to this, morale is down as there haven't been raises in 3 years....yes, 3 years!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your feet on the street. It's difficult to lead from the back of the room and keep your eyes on where you're going.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
