    I worked at Zep full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent base salary
    Can call on any type of account
    Build territory form the ground up

    Cons

    No Car/gas/cell phone allowance
    Want you to be commission only in 2 years
    No legit training, just online modules
    Only know if another rep has an account if you happen to call account

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people time to build their business..and its unheard of to not be reimbursed for any expenses in outside sales.

    Doesn't Recommend

    It started out great, like a family but then they became cold and hard on sales reps.

    I worked at Zep

    Pros

    Started out as a great job that I could build my own business and work my own hours. When they went public it was then all about the shareholders and making money. Even my customers were not valued like they should have been

    Cons

    Too many major changes in the company from 2005 on up. My old manager didn't know what he was doing and the higher ups didn't know or want to hear how bad his management skills were. He was later fired I heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the basics like Harry M. ran it. Value your employees and they will value you.
