I worked at Reynolds American full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Awesome perks, benefits and job freedom

Have to live in the middle of no where and constantly have a carrot dangled in front of your face about being promoted.

Be honest, "transparent" and up front about promotion opportunities.

    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

    - 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at upper management leadership.
