Very confused company, always a step behind.

Sales Representative (Current Employee)

ProsThey do pay for all of your expenses and make like easy as far as being new to the sales rep position.

They have a good idea of where they want to be in the tobacco market.

supervisors are always looking to give you advice.

ConsThey micromanage their employees, it does not seem like they trust their employees. They are constantly trying to tell you how something should have been done. The head office will make broad assumptions about individual accounts which impact your daily activities.

Management changes their mind on a weekly basis on "what is important" this leads to a lot of confusion on the sales force.

goals are dangled in front of employees like carrots on a stick, the sales goals are close to impossible to achieve.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would recommend that they allow more freedom to the employees, they need to have more control of their schedule and not be hassled when they make 1 stop out of sequence.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Working for a family business is great but raises are necessary.
