    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    (2) Weeks vacation first year of employment, (3) Weeks vacation after three years of service, on and on thereafter. Snap-On Tools product discount is very generous. If your are hired in a position that requires travel, this employer will allow you to retain all of your loyalty points with all the lodging, airline and car rental companies. Traditional perks assured. Management is very flexible with schedules. Compensation is competitive, considering former employers that I've worked for. Also the employee stock purchase program is great. It has allowed me to easily save money. I highly recommend this company to a person who is starting to come of age in their career. When you get hired at this company. Your friends and family will say "you work for a good company".

    Cons

    Some of the positions require a lot of travel. Frequent, extended amounts of travel 90-100% of your working weeks. You have to love the open road in order to be successful in any of the positions that require travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at this company works very hard. And they do a great job.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Snap-on.

    Interview Details

    Interview was very formal with questions about previous work experience, education, and scenario situations. Job description/territory were changed and salary was lowered than what was originally told to me during my 1st phone interview. More interested in typical "used car salesman" selling rather than professional relationship selling. Was very disappointed with the managers I interviewed with. Salary was very low yet they expect 50+ hr work weeks with travel daily with no car allowance or company car. If this was told to me over the phone I would never have wasted a morning interviewing.
