    Challenging experience intertwined with complete management incompetence

    District Sales Manager (Current Employee) Knoxville, TN

    ProsAbout only pro is that the company does provide good benefits.

    ConsOut of touch upper management. Lack of appreciation of field sales. Unfair/unreasonable expectations in relation to time required to perform job duties. Little to no training. Never seek feedback. Attaboys are nonexistant. Upper management and some middle management have no clue what is required to perform expected duties on a daily basis

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back in touch with your people. Hop on a truck. Get up at 2am and don't get home until 5pm or later, do it for a couple of weeks, then rethink your expectations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
