    I worked at Applied Industrial Technologies (Cleveland) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    AIT has a decent pay structure for Account Managers, but you need help to get there. Unfortunately, you won't get the help you need because the company is stretched so thin that everyone is overworked and can't help you or even keep up with their own jobs. The company has great benefits. That's the best thing I can say.

    Cons

    Rolling out SAP in 2013 was a disaster. The company took a giant step backwards. The challenge was not getting orders, it was saving orders from being cancelled. Hopefully things are better now. Too much paperwork for sales guys.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people at each service center or you will never get ahead of your competitors.

    I have been working at Applied Industrial Technologies (Cleveland) (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a company who has fallen in love with metrics at the expense of sales professionals who actually pay the bills. It's over managed and under supervised.

    Cons

    If you come to work here get ready to get the least amount of face to face time with your customers that you can imagine. Managers sit back and wring their hands over numbers. That's their function to relay a never ending stream of meaningless computer data to you and constantly push to meet the goals Cleveland set with absolutely no input from the field. The MSS division is losing reps and managers at an astounding rate. You will get a lot of complaints about poor service, inflated freight charges, and lack of inventory.

    Advice to Management

    Get a real job. Quit calling the sales staff at night and on weekends for information for more idiotic reports
