    Ok Company. Good Experience

    Outside Labor Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsGood sales experience for a resume builder.
    Potential for good commissions with hard work.

    ConsVery demanding. As a outside sales rep plan to work over 45-50 hours a week.
    Management puts too much responsibility on the sales re other than focusing on sales. Should be a collections department along with a much more automated system to submit order information. Very very dated and it feels like you work in 1997 with too much paperwork.
    Only one week of vacation a year until you work for 3 or more years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in IT. There are too many digital solutions that could help their business.
    Offer a "Ramp Up" program to help with beginning salaries. Turn over is too high due to not offering any kind of initial incentive

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent Experience

    Employee (Current Employee)
    Richmond, VA

    ProsLots of autonomy. However easy to lose focus on pertinent business functions which effects your pocket. As long as you can stay disciplined and really work hard you can make good money.

    ConsLow pay until you build up business

    Advice to Senior ManagementI hate to say it but i may be beneficial to have a bit more micromanaging.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Prosbase is 30k, car allowance is $400 per month, car allowance is good for your first 5 months, after that you need 800 man hours per month. great group of coworkers and corporate seems to really care about their sales force to a degree.

    Consyour product is temp construction workers, they will accept a job and then never show up. your commsion is based upon filling orders with unrelaible people.very frustrating

    Advice to Senior Managementbetter pay/commssion, update IT
