Great company to start your sales career at.

Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

ProsThey give the outside sales team lots of support, and their methodology is a great system to use. Lots of freedom as an outside sales rep, great time off with no hassle, work from home office, and a great $7000 annual car allowance.

ConsNot paid very well, high turnover, and their 1st week of initial training is brutal, it is geared toward somebody who has absolutley no idea about selling, yet, to be an outside sales rep you need experience. They really need to change their training program.
Not very well respected by customers, think about it, you sell pens and paper.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay more.
Change training program.
Pay more attention to the Canadian Operation.
At the last sales convention in Montreal, Eric Bigeard clearly stated in his speech that Canada was doing terrible, not something nice to say at a sales convention when it's supposed to be positive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
