I have been working at Partsmaster full-time (More than 8 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
Excellent products. You will NOT find better quality elsewhere. Training is ongoing. It never ends, just gets better as your skill set gets better. NO pain in the butt sales reports. There is some minor activity reporting when you start, but that disappears in a short time. Find a large account and it remains yours...no "house accounts" Management values salesreps HIGHLY and without exception are very personable. You can talk with anyone at this company like your neighbor. Company is not afraid to spend money where it's appropriate. Corporate customer service is excellent. Advancement into management is primarily performance driven.
You have to work your butt off to start, building a customer base. Rather than company car, you get mileage reimbursement Technology is middle of the road at best, however most of the customers are not tech savvy so it's usually not an issue.
Advice to Management
Provide all the reps with an I-pad mini. Revamp the special orders department to be more market competitive.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Partsmaster (Lexington-Fayette, KY).
Referred to Partsmaster by a freind working for a different division of NCH. Had a short phone interview with a HR rep, then sent in resume. Had follow on phone interview with regional manager. About three weeks later had in person interview with head of HR. All interviews were very casual, but they do know how to check you out, so be prepared. Had a one day ride along in the field with a current salesrep to see what they do firsthand.
- Questions were pretty standard. They asked about previuos cold calling experience and "hunter gatherer vs. farmer" prospecting Answer Question
I just took the offer without negotiating
