I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- Company vehicle, fuel paid for (Employee required to pay $125.00 a month however) - Positive/supportive peers (You essentially learn from them) - Above-average pay for an entry-level position

Cons

- Managers in positions incongruent with ability/interpersonal skills - Indifferent and/or devisive store owners often incapable of true partnership. - Work day is not 8-5; those are the "in the trade" hours. plan on an extra 1-2 hours a day to stay organized and informed.

Advice to Management

- Fully vett potential DM's; ensure they can actually lead and mentor subordinates - Educate DM's on why it's crucial to solicit ideas / experiences from TM's. - Revamp the initial training program; very little purchase for the time invested - Incorporate objective, structured, standardized reviews after individual trainings and work-with's

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time

    Pros

    Entry level position, many training opportunities. Company car, benefits, work out of home office. Company computer, pay for cell phone and hi speed internet. Work out in the field not in a office. Work independently most of the time.

    Cons

    Promotion limited based on who likes you and your mobility not your work. Long hours very demanding. Mostly work in retail outlets. Not allowed to think outside the box. Selling tobacco products.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at upper management leadership.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent learning opportunities, great pay and benefits, company car and free gas, flexibility

    Cons

    Management should be evaluted closely. The job is wonderful if you don't have a manager that has been at the company their entire life! The manager makes the job, and if you get someone that is invested in seeing you succeed, then you have found gold. If you get an anal manager that chooses to micromanage you, then beware. You may be looking for another job.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees have the freedom to make decisions without you making them. Lighten up and trust that we know how to do our own job!
