Current Employee - Sales Developer in Orlando, FL

I have been working at Snap-on as a contractor (more than 10 years)

Pros

They make decent equipment for shops, but do not present a threat to the various competitors selling the major part of the market in the larger equipment category.

Cons

They have a major lack of service for the equipment, this is where they tend to lose most of the battles in the streets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you learn how to market your equipment in the field the sky could be the limit and the competitors would then be concerned. Until then you will remain a supplier of good tool truck tools,but will continue to remain but a mere fractional supplier of the larger equipment needed in today's service shop user environment.

    Former Employee - Diagnostics Sales Developer in Portland, OR

    I worked at Snap-on full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay & benefits; excellent training programs. Set your own schedule.

    Cons

    Extensive travel, long hours, poor family/work balance. Too great amount of politics involved in personnel management and promotions. Promotions are very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regional managers have too much power regarding the hiring and firing of Regional FPT management. Management is more concerned about documenting activities that (aren't actually) are occurring then the actual success of the Franchisees. CYA environment!
