    I have been working at Wurth USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Like most sale positions, your earnings are uncapped. You have the ability to work a flexible schedule if you are lazy or have a poor work ethic or unmotivated. Management leaves you alone if you do decent numbers. Best products and best product reputation in the business. They have a lot of tools in order to help you succeed.

    Cons

    I have been a territory sales manager or whatever they want to call me now for the last 3.5 years. I am decently successful here. I would accept a new sales position in a minute if and when I find the right one.

    Every word I say is true. Management was told to post positive reviews on here and then the recruiter will comment on it. The reason I am posting a review on here was the comment by the recruiter and I quote, "It is unfortunate that Glassdoor allows such false statements to be held on their website. The type of environment described is not one that would be tolerated at this organization. Our mission and values support teamwork, customer satisfaction, quality, integrity and other healthy conditions" EVERY WORD OF THAT REVIEW IS TRUE. I have not read one negative review that is off. There is even a website for former Wurth sales reps to complain about Wurth.

    The facts are thus, in the 3.5 years I have been here about 375 new reps have been hired. That is a fact. Most leave when their guarantee is up and they realize they can not make the amount of money the managers told them they could make.

    The pay scale is geared towards growth. Once you stop growing, you will take a pay cut. Meaning, once you grow your territory to a certain level and level off, your bonus money goes away. Meaning, at the beginning of the new calendar year when you get your new daily baseline number and you keep selling the same amount, you will make less money if you do not grow. ALL seasoned reps hate the new pay plans, because it is not easy to get bonuses and they are have to sell more to make the same amount. Yes, you read that right. Most will sell more at the same exact pricing or higher and will make less or the same money.

    Wurth is bar none the highest priced in the industry. I routinely come across competitors that are selling very similar products for half or less than my lowest pricing. The national account people are really bad at their jobs. There are many accounts, me as a local rep, have zero chance to get, because of the company's corporate structure. National account people do pretty much nothing to help open these accounts up.

    If you are interviewing ask how many sales reps have worked your area in the last 5 years. Many of the areas with a high turnover, dealers will have a stack of Wurth rep cards in their shop. For sure, you will have at least 25 customers that were screwed by past reps trying to earn a living and forever ruined the relationship between them and Wurth.

    We have a new ceo after the last one "left". I honestly can't tell if the guy is working or not. He must be waiting until next year to do anything. Nothing has changed at all since he arrived a few months ago. I have to wonder how he got the job. Seems like he did not come in with a plan. 2 company wide emails in 3 or 4 months and he has not been seen at any company function such as races.

    You do not get paid vacations. They sorta lie about this. You do get paid when you are on vacation, because you are getting paid what you earned in sales last month, but next month is a different story. If you do not make up the sales you did not make while on vacation, you will get paid less. Vacations and sick days are more like excused absences.

    I can go into a much of other things, but seriously this job is not easy, not the best paying one and chances are you are not going to last more then 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously, stop all the games you play on here and figure out why you have to hire 120 new reps a year. That is about 25% of your sales staff yearly. At some point you need to figure out what you are doing wrong, because some of the things you say are flat out lies. You need to seriously lower your expenses and get in line with our competitions pricing. I hope the new CEO does not allow the same mistake of the former CEO by not valuing the sales staff. I am not saying all the reps do not deserve the criticism, but most of us are not happy about the pay plan and are not motivated at all. Stop these stupid prize contests. WE WANT OUR MONEY! NOT PRIZES! Do a better job at training. The catalog is horrible. I know you think it is very informative, but it really is not. Tell Academy to get their butt in gear and talk with whomever designs the catalog pages and let them give input. We are not nearly the experts we should be and Wurth's weak training is to blame. Education does not stop once level 2 and 4 is over and I can only learn so much from techs. I need Wurth to explain to the reps how the Wurth products work better. Everyone should have a basic understanding of what all these chemicals (not the products, but the actual chemicals) do. Lastly, why do you even bother to have us get all these forms filled out and then signed off by two managers only to have them thrown in the trash once they are entered. Such a waste of time for all.
