Sell, sell, sell!

Associate Manager (Current Employee)

Pros-Young co-workers; most straight out of college.
-World-wide company; Internationally recognized
-Ability to relocate easily
-Many positions avaliable within the company in different departments and levels.

Cons-Promotions are solely based on sales perfomance - it has nothing to do with your ability to lead and manage people.
-Expectations and goals are unrealistic.
-LONG hours. LOW pay.
-Cleaning cars! Rain-sleet--heat-snow...it must get done! Customers need clean vehicles.
-Unethical practices are what gets employees promoted. Extremely difficult to hit goals with selling and doing everything "by the book". Upper management looks the other way, because higher sales and more $$ for those individuals in turn brings in more $$ for them.
-HIGH turnover rate.

Advice to Senior Management-Start promoting people who can lead, rather than sell!
-Take care of your employees. They break their backs for you - at least pretend like you care!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
