Wish I hadn't left at times

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe job was a good mix of desk job and active work environment. I was able to easily advance to the next level when the opportunity arose. There were opportunities to move anywhere if I had wanted to.

ConsOne: bonuses at the time were structured poorly and I didn't see it was going to be possible to achieve it. Alot of the bonus depended on things thatvwerecoutside my control so I was at the mercy of others to get part of my salary. Which leads me to TWO: low pay that was not competitive for same position elsewhere. The potential high bonus would have made up for that but it wasn't looking possible to achieve.
I have heard that the bonus issue has been sits resolved where it is possible to get and leans less on performance of people that I had no control over.

Advice to Senior ManagementPhase out the rest of the good old boys from the days before Poolcorp; force retirement of the people that still hold onto how things were done before Poolcorp bought their distribution company if the ate not on board with how things are being done now.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
