    Pros

    Flexible schedule; interesting work handling different products; opportunity to meet associates in various stores;

    Cons

    Hourly rate on the low side; many store visits are relatively brief (around 1 hour) so unless you are in an area with many projects available, the travel time and gas etc may effectively eat up the compensation;

    Advice to Management

    project budgets should allow for two-hour minimums when visits are brief and infrequent, otherwise it may be a losing proposition

    Pros

    You make your own schedule for the most part. You're told a time frame that you need to be in the store and the stores you must go to but that's it. You determine when and where you go for the day.
    Decent pay.
    You're always given an opportunity to move up in the company. Even if you wanna make a move to do so!
    Awesome, caring management.
    Even the higher ups are down to earth and fun to be around!
    You are given a once a year meeting that gives you chance to mingle with everyone you work for. It's an awesome bonding experience.

    Cons

    Some territories have ALOT of driving.
    The cent per mile could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Take a harder look at what you're paying for gas milage. There's no way that wear and tear is included in the cent per mile.
    Gas is almost $3.00 in my area and I only receive .35 per mile.

    adjustable self made schedule, company is good about time off, most people you work with in your stores are pleasant and helpful.

    putting miles on your car, pay is not great, the job is changing from being a merchandiser to a salesman, company is taking on more clients but not giving reps more time to work calls

    do better about hiring from within and create more routes giving reps less stores and more hours in current stores

    Pros

    Extremely efficient, consistent, and over-abundance of resources.

    Cons

    Little human contact; no hands on assistant; and very cold and distant with the employees.
    They repeatedly talk at the employees and leave little if any room for discussion.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees have a voice in day to day operations and not function like robots!

    Pros

    Flexible with your weekly schedule

    Cons

    No benefits for part timers, no guaranteed hours

    Advice to Management

    Negotiating an employee discount for the part timers at the clients stores might help lessen the attrition rate.

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of people and its fun to do!

    Cons

    If you work at Walmart or Dillions you make 10.00 but if you work at Sam's Club you make 12.50 an hour. Why is this?

    Advice to Management

    Why is there a pay differential between Sam's Club and Walmart?
