Not the place to be if you want to make money

Sales Representative (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsHome based. Flexible hours. Good and helpful field reps.

ConsHORRIBLE commision structure. Very low salary. Unrealistic yearly budgets. Zero help from inside sales. Have Business Develepment Specialists("Hunters"), who are non-exsistent. Poor and outdated technology. Average wait to talk to a CS person is 20 to 30 minutes. These are people in your own company. Poor follow-up from Product Specialists if there is a problem in the field. Car and fuel allowance woeful. Spend an average of 150.00 per month out of pocket for fuel purchase

Advice to Senior ManagementStop short changing your sales staff. A 1 percent bonus as an incentive to make budget is laughable at best. Get with the 21st century technology wise. Increase company visability. Barnes supplies Nascar with nuts and bolts, why not use that as a selling feature?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
