    I have been working at Kimball Midwest (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Your success is all up to you and what you put into the job. I've been there more than 15 years and don't know what else I would do. I found that the harder I work, the luckier I get.

    Cons

    Doesn't happen very often but sometimes an order gets held up for no reason. And it seems to happen to really important orders. I've heard a lot worse from reps with other companies so maybe I'm spoiled. The pricing can be kind of high but I figure I'm a professional and I'm going to get paid for it. I earn the higher price. Besides, if you're in there because you're the cheapest, you're gone when somebody cheaper comes along. I'm there because I'm better. You have to be better and prove it to take my business. Good luck with that.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the requirements to attend sales meetings. These are great motivation and can drive higher numbers from slower reps with more exposure to successful people.

    Called by HR, interviewed via telephone, moved on to face to face interview with District Manager and drove to where he was 40 miles from my home after flying back from my current job in another state.
