Salary based pay which is good for those straight out of college starting in sales.

Cons

Relatively low salary pay, no commission, bonus is fairly low..avg 3-5k/yr
You will have to work nights and weekends sometimes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe create a chance for long-term sales reps by starting a commission based compensation or higher salary. Create a more structured training for items sold outside of the Buckeye line.

    Great place to get your feet wet in sales, but don't expect to make much money.

    I worked at Buckeye International, Inc.

    Pros

    Sales training
    Immediate sales experience with many types of businesses
    Opportunity for advancement within company
    Steady income despite performance
    They will give you plenty of tools to use

    Cons

    Low pay
    Sales rep position is a temporary position, either be promoted or find a new job. Generally, if you have not been promoted is some manner after 2 - 3 years, you are not going to be. Find a new job. They will eventually let you go. Sales Rep position is not designed for long term employment.
    No commission so motivation is mostly driven by opportunity for promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At some point opportunities for advancement will be stagnant as the company slows in its growth. Will need to restructure how sales reps are compensated as opportunity for advancement will become rare.
