    I worked at ARS full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay if you know how to sell Hvac equipment. you get a company truck with a gas card. Not much cold calling.

    Cons

    The management is not the best. You are.pretty much your trainer. The company is very micro managed and no matter what your numbers are, it's not good enough

    Advice to Management

    Learn the product that you want your comfort specialist to sell.

    Pros

    Test engineer is a good position to learn and to begin in a company. after that you could move to development and have years of experience.

    less salary than software engineers, people move quickly from test positions to other positions.

    Advice to Management

    no any advice tomanagemet. I am not enough time in the company to provide good advice. we need more time tohave a better opinion of the company.

    Pros

    It's a fun environment to work in.

    Cons

    Your commission only comes through a sale. If the weeks are slow, there will be no commission.

    Advice to Management

    Management was very nice would have loved more hours though.

    Pros

    The people I worked with mostly the employees were really great.

    Cons

    Always pushing the techs to sell and if they didn't there were not allowed to go to repair calls. The would be strictly put on tune ups for 7 years and newer and if there were no more calls they went home and the selling techs were allowed to work. If for some reason the age of the unit was wrong and it was older than specified a salesman was sent if the tech wasn't a seller and the customers were ganged up upon.

    Advice to Management

    Get smart before you lose all the good techs.
