I have been working at Federal Companies
Pros – Promotions came quickly with the experienced management team.
Cons – After the family owned business was sold after 97 years, the attitude change and the experience dropped off, one by one.
Advice to Senior Management – Look at you management team. Right people for the right seat? How much experience has to leave before you wake up?

I worked at Federal Companies full-time for less than a year
Pros – I cannot think of many but I guess I would have to say there seemed to be an enthusiasm when hiring people and trying to instill confidence in the employees.
Cons – Training was a JOKE!!! The St. Louis branch turned and burned through sales people quicker then you can blink. The sales manager was completely ineffective and general manager did not have a clue as how to groom sales people. It was a completely unsupportive environment going as far as the office manager who would treat people with complete disregard. The initial pay really sucks.
Advice to Senior Management – Get a clue!!! Hire people who know how to train sales people and start treating them as an investment, not an object you can throw away after a short time.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Federal Companies
Pros – i made over 50k as a company driver my first year being there at only 21 years old....paid hourly, even when on the road, which means you can take all the time you want...take side streets on your 400 mile trip as long as you get to the residence on time
Cons – management has meetings convincing everyone that working fast and efficient will bring in more profit meaning bonus at the end of year. End of the year comes and everyone gets a letter from owner saying not enough profit was brought in to give everyone a bonus. but the owner has 20 ferraris.
Advice to Senior Management – realize and appreciate the fact that drivers are the ones that make the money.pernamently lay off your people more proffessionally, not over the phone without notice
