I have been working at Zep full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Co-workers are fun, everyone works as a team. Generous commission % at the highest level. Given a book of accounts to call on, that are protected as long as they purchase every 6 months.

Cons

No immediate supervisor, impossible to achieve growth goals that increase every month - expected to double or triple a customer's monthly purchase every month - avg sale is $150. Lack of any real health benefits, told it was a salaried job but have to punch a timeclock and get paid by the hour.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire immediate supervisors, formulate a better strategy to compensate sales reps, understand that your average mom and pop auto shop does not need to buy 4 gallons of hand soap every month.

    Pros

    its good job to gain experience for sales 101

    Cons

    you use all your own gas, put miles on your car. Use your own technology and they tell you relocation is included and then they say its not. The salary is entry level and the commission is almost nothing. Only 10% lol

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Im not sure . They say it is but you have to work like a race horse on cocaine to move up

    Pros

    They provide all the support you need from management and other sales reps as well as products for samples.

    Cons

    If after 6 months you aren't making enough sales they give you a short time frame to achieve the sales goals or you are done with Zep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help new sales reps that do not have experience by showing them how to find potential customers. Going door to door is not an effective method for finding new business.
