Excellent company, benefits, pay, work atmosphere
Utility division was not set-up like other divisions with regional management - a lack of clear utility direction gave other divisions an opening to compete for utility business with the knowledge of local management
Advice to Management
Create a business development position rather than an outside sales position - secure better utility pricing and improve stocking positions to improve order execution performance in utility

It was a long process with two interviews asking real world experience questions. More about problem solving and solution application using current knowledge than your standard "If you were and animal what would you be" type interview questions. Then there was a personality test, drug test, and a lot of paperwork (for the on-boarding process)
