Current Employee - Route Sales Manager  in  Austin, TX
Current Employee - Route Sales Manager in Austin, TX

Pros

The fact that they pay for everything: from providing a vehicle, corporate credit card, gas card, cell phone bill, mobile hot spot, tools, training, clothing, shoes, and excellent meals when traveling.

Cons

Work-life balance can be very difficult at times because of being on-call 24hrs M-F and some weekends. Upsetting a customer will get to upper management very quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Being on-call 24hrs M-F sucks!!

    Current Employee - Route Sales Manager in San Diego, CA

    Pros

    Free company vehicle (logo'd) and tools provided to you. Make your own schedule but often told you are not doing enough. Can make extra money when you cover routes that people left (because they quit).

    Cons

    Benefits have declined. All benefit coverages have increased in cost per month and decreased total coverage. Overwork people on the weekends and nights. A lot of issues with people being disengaged and just trying to get by. In our area, many people have been on performance plans and threatened to get fired. Many times they can't fire anyone because there are already open areas from those who just quit. People live in fear of getting fired but then when everyone is threatened with it, they understand the threat is not real.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to engage people and have a resource for employees to go to that have been bullied by managers. Also, a fair way for promotions without choosing people who they like. Promotions should be performance based. Multiple people should get the opportunity to interview instead of someone just being "picked".

    Former Employee - Senior Analyst  in  Houston, TX

    Pros

    This is a good sturdy company where you can start and end you career. If you put in your time and do your job you will never be too stressed.

    "Official" policies are fair.

    Cons

    Very political structure. Good performance may actually keep you trapped rather than give you new opportunities as managers try to prevent you from being recognized.

    Promotion based on seniority and the friend network.

    Succession planning and career mapping are only given to a select few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the differences between your business units. Both you employees and customers are different and can't be treated the same.
