I worked at bisco industries

Pros

Bisco Ind has a laid back work atmosphere with a small group feel to the office. The office environment allowed for a good competitive spirit with the team working together. Overall the small 3 - 4 man team in the office provides enough coverage for the territory.

Cons

You really have to enjoy the people you are working with in the office, because you will be relying on them for help. The position is not necessarily the most challenging but it is a typical inside sales position that allows you to leave your work at the office. Not much opportunity for salary growth unless you are able to move up several positions from the starting sales position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be smart and keep an eye on how the location manager is running/allowing the rules to be bent.

    I worked at bisco industries full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Paychecks come on time, nice benefits, good start up experience.

    Cons

    Horrible management, flawed computer system, commission is a joke, micromanaging, lack of communication between upper management and area management, company doesn't stick to it's own policies, no real training, no real room for growth unless you want to relocate, horrible accounting, childish website, awful marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never in my years in sales have I seen a company so poorly run, and the departments so disjointed and not working together. Sales people at Bisco bear the brunt of all the BS of the company, when marketing screws up its sales fault, if they do an over buy on a part you dont want more of, its sales fault. Management really needs to step up their game. Some of the people they hire for office managers is extremely questionable, and leaves you wondering what logic was actually used to come to this decision. No management experience? Caught not doing your job and cheating the system? General lack of actually caring about what you do? Clearly management material, right? Just because someone meets sales goals every month doesn't mean they should become a manager. Bisco also has extremely out of date policies and procedures which are in DESPERATE need of being revamped and reworked. Like commission for example. How can you justify not basing commission off of how much someone makes for the company, and instead basing it off of some confusing formula where you basically have to gouge your customer in pricing to make good "points"? I smell a scam. I witnessed a person who had been with the company for years have a bad couple of months and Bisco humiliated them before firing them after they had brought so much business to the company. Bisco does not care about it's own employees and it was sickening to see. Trying to get orders is hard enough without accounting screwing you over in setting up terms, and the website giving OUTRAGEOUS pricing based off the outdated bisco system. Most of upper management are people who have only ever worked for Bisco, so they aren't aware of how real companies should be run. Be prepared to get insulting emails and often times stuck with dozens of dead accounts that they have somehow convinced themselves are worth keeping and will eventually be profitable. And whats next, after being with the company after a year? A 1% raise. I wish that was the punchline to a bad joke, but it isn't. DO NOT believe what you are offered. The only way you will make a $2000 monthly commission is if you make close to $300,000 in shipping sales for the company. Hope this helps someone who is looking at the company, and hopefully management sees this and takes a good hard look at the company and improves.
