Pros

This company is incredible. The benefits, the people, the training, the career opportunities are all beyond any company I've ever looked at on this site. I absolutely love the path I'm on as a Territory Sales Representatitive and will eventually become an Account Manager and keep moving up. Grainger CARES about their employees and if you work smart and hard, you'll go far.

Profit-sharing after 2 years!
Medical/dental/vision & more benefits! They give you a company car/gas/insurance/tolls/etc for FREE to use for your personal use too!
Base+uncapped commission pay
Travel to Orlando, FL for EVERYONE EVERY YEAR for a team-building sales event.
Great entry-level sales job
Balance between your work and personal life is AMAZING compared to other jobs
Amazing atmosphere!

Cons

Lots of on the road driving required.
Not a lot of interaction face-to-face with other people from your company
Requires great time-management skill
Pressure to make your goal every month which could be tough depending on your territory
Rejection from customers who do not want to see you when you visit
Commission check doesn't arrive until the last paycheck of the following month.
Paychecks delivered bi-weekly instead of weekly.

Advice to Management

Be realistic about goals and about a TSRs CSG. Consider that TSRs in different cities/states should make pay based on their market in that part of the country. Someone in CA should make more than someone in TX because of the cost of living for example.

    Cons

    disconnect between upper level management and lower level management, only promote the very best

    Advice to Management

    Some customer promotions/programs seem like an initiative to boost sales with a sense of urgency or desperation towards the end of a fiscal quarter
