Current Employee - Sales Representative

I have been working at PSS World Medical

Pros

Great opportunities
Senior Management is realistic about challenges facing the industry, and therefore has a customer focused business agenda
Create your own schedule
Unlimited income potential

Cons

For someone "pioneering" a territory (not given any accounts), PSS asks for 3 years but only pays you for 18 months, after that, you are on a straight commission. Recruitment makes a lot of promises but its a totally different story when you are in the field. People who are given business have it MUCH easier. This is much more like starting your own company, which can be very difficult without the proper training (also not the best). Great company to work for, but if interviewing, make sure expectations and what you are getting yourself into are clear.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Training needs to be revamped- make sure leaders are enforcing ride days with reps/trainees. Pay attention to rookies- they want to succeed but need your help!

    Pros

    Treated with respect and valued

    Cons

    The culture changed once it was acquired by McKesson

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career opportunities come in more colors and styles than lateral promotions. Growth means more to your people than salaries. Recognize their passion.

    Pros

    Great reputation. Active in the community. National Presence.

    Cons

    Used to be very agile, now it is caught up in bureaucracy. Unqualified people get promoted. Communication from executives to the rank and file is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start communicating.
