    Pros

    Flexibility and the ability to come and go. The pay is pretty good, and they used to give you a company truck...don't know if they still do that or not.

    Cons

    Too many decisions about products that the store carries are made at the corporate level. It is very difficult to actually get what your customers want and ask for.

    Advice to Management

    Give the stores some more power to make decisions about what products are placed within the store. If someone wants a certain blend of fertilizer, let the store order it to acheive sales target.

    Pros

    It was fun to interact with customers during the day.

    Cons

    Middle management doesn't listen to the sales force. Upper management was inept and only building up the company in order to sell it off after the stock price tanked. RMs didn't take the time to listen to the concerns of their sales people. Corporate was pushing products in my store that had no use in our part of the country. We constantly received the wrong product at the wrong time of the year. We were pushed into stocking products that our customers did not want to purchase. It was hard to get the warehouse to give us the product that we knew we could really sell.

    Advice to Management

    Should have sold out sooner

    Pros

    My immediate supervisor is great. He is very flexible as to working hours and days off. As long as the work is getting done and the customer is happy then he is happy. The pay is outstanding. He wanted me on the team and I wouldn't have even thought of negotiating a salary as high as he offered me.

    Cons

    The downsides are that we are a small defense contracting company, so the benefits aren't real great and job security is not so good. If we loose a contract or if funding gets held up because of some bureaucratic red tape, you can find yourself temporarily or permanently unemployed.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to us! Actually, my direct supervisor is senior management (CIO) and he's real good about answering questions and letting us know stuff, but the management above him who directs the company overall never tells us a thing. Of course, no company I've ever worked for has been any different in this regard.
