I worked at Lorillard

Pros

If you enjoy sales -- you can manage a territory with little leadership or help by management.

Cons

1. Management never provides P.O.S. undless their supervisor is coming to town
2. District Manager is always on the phone to wife -- but does not care if your family sees you.
3. I enjoyed my job -- but could not get the tools from management to do my job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize sales representatives are the link between company and businesses even in non urban areas. Care about your sales representatives and take miles into account. Unfair to treat rural reps the same as city reps. Very rude to families.

    Pros

    Basically working on your own, very important to be self-motivated, great salary, job security, company car, laptop, benefits, 5 weeks vacation time. If you're lucky enough to work with a great group of people, this is a great job.

    Cons

    Ladder-climbing junior management cost this company some of its best and brightest. Also need to come up with a believable lie as to what you do for a living, because lot sof people will hate you for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Curb your young.

    Company car. Pension plan. Most of the time you work on your own.

    Cons

    lack of leadership. History of company using employees and then dumping. etc..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have not seen one Division Manager that is honest. You should put them under the microscope that you put sales representatives. You would be surprised. I am tired of them expecting sales reps to be quite as we cover for them to regional managers. Yes he worked with me... right. Sales reps only have one line of communication. So you better lie for them.
