Be careful if you apply here

Sales (Former Employee)

ProsI worked there for almost a year and I can't think of any except some of the people I knew from the corporate office were very nice and professional. But local management does not value individuals or care when you need time with your kids etc. I am a single parent and sometimes have issues with childcare.

Conslow pay
long long long hours
hundreds of dollars a month in gas expenses not covered, can be more than 4 hours a day just commuting to get to the market they will have you sell in!!!
local sales manager is often horrible, degrading to salespeople
Ask lots of questions in an interview about quotas and get in writing what is expected of you
If you want time with your kids think twice

Advice to Senior ManagementAt the local level anyway review management behavior. May be time for a change.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
