    Former Employee - Sales in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Zep full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    excellent products
    people are nice
    Might be good opportunity only if people come from industry and have years to invest.
    Good stepping stone

    Cons

    lack of direction for sales people
    learn on your own
    poor morale of sales people
    lack of support locally
    too may obstacles for new people to make a living like long time employees do
    sales has to compete with retail big box who are selling products in canada
    US treats Canada like the US

    Former Employee - Outside Sales Representative

    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.
