Pros

In the region I am in there are several talented individuals, from the reps up to the RSM. We are encouraged daily. Barnes has an extensive education and information system. They are truly concerned about their people. They want the reps to be successful, and they want us to have fun.The plan expectations can be daunting, but once you get your head around it, it's challenging and fun. I am GRATEFUL for every day I get to go to work for Barnes. This is actually the second time I have worked for Barnes. Every job has it's frustrating issues. You just have to put your head down and plow through.

Cons

Antiquated wireless capabilities.( still better than doing it by hand!)

Advice to Management

Design a new hire " things you'll need" package.

    Pros

    Company uses to its advantage self motivated sales people by offering commission dollars and freedom of work schedule.

    Cons

    commission rate (compared to the price level structure) has been raided by senior mgt

    Advice to Management

    Review commission rates and purge sales force of people who are not suited for this job. Stop milking commissions from the 5 decimal place pricing structure. Stop copy catting the Fastenal way of treating employees.
