I have been working at Pro Chem, Inc. full-time (less than an year)Pros
The only good thing from my experience with Pro Chem is that I have learned to research a company before working for them! I am a very dedicated and hard worker that had a successful sales career with my previous company. This company has made several sales representatives mad and this is why I am posting now. The other positive posts are clearly because the company recruited current employees to write for them. Please do your research before accepting a position.Cons
I was hired in with the company with the understanding that I would receive an account list after six months. I was also told that the previous sales representative left to pursue pharmaceutical sales and that I would have the entire territory.They also will tell you that they will help you. This was all lies! The previous representative was fired after 15 years on Christmas Eve. There is no management team/help in place for each territory. They will give you a rookie coach. If you are lucky, you will have one that will help, I didn't. In fact she told me that she hated coaching! My territory was cherry picked by five other sales representatives. Some didn't even live in my state and upper management could care less. I drove 800-1000 miles a week to find left over scraps.
The other thing that is bad about the company is there are no training guidelines in place. It differs between the office, coaches and management. This makes the company look bad to customers. I had to do research on my own to be effective at my job. I believe that this is because they want women to flirt with customers and do other unprofessional things to get orders. This has been my experience with the other representative in my area. The company doesn't care that someone behaves this way. They only care about money. If you don't believe me ask other competitors in your area. Pro Chem is know to hire women between 25-35. They will use them until they get about 50 and push them out the door.
My advice to anyone considering going with this company is to run! I just found out about this website and it would have definitely made a difference for me.Advice to ManagementAdvice
My advice to management is to have a structured training program. This means that you need to do something other than read out of the catalog. I would also suggest that when you hire someone with an outstanding sales background to trust them with the account list. That is what normal companies do and that is why I left. Stop telling potential employees that you are a Christian, family company. FYI...that is the furthest thing from the truth.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
