    Pros

    Company vehicle, good insurance, outside sales (not sitting in an office), 401K plan, some compenstion for cell phone

    Cons

    Very inexpereinced upper mangement for the OTP category. People hired based on who they know rather than what they know. Needs a good work plan, but more so, needs to start by learning what a work plan is. No productive direction. Totally different from the industry norm.

    Advice to Management

    Place knowledable people with OTP experience in positions to give all reps direction. Winging it isn't getting it as I'm sure STG is discovering.

    Pros

    Benefits,company vehicle,401-K, paid holidays and vacation

    Cons

    Business Plan failed. Worst Management I have ever worked for! No Values. Recently laid off 25 Sales Reps.; over half of their Sales Force.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let HR make decisions for you. Hire experienced people, not friends. Pay attention to your competition. Respect for your employees.


  3. Job title does not reflect other duties and the Territories are too large for effective classification coverage.

    I have been working at Lane Limited

    Pros

    Benefits that include Major Medical, Dental, Eye Care,vacation and holiday pay, 401K Savings Plan,Company car,cell phone and laptop.

    Cons

    Use you for key account information,contact information,Buyer Calls,Introductory meetings. Very poor focus on market needs. No direction from middle management on what they want or how they intend to obtain business. Want you to call on wholesalers and retail outside your site list. Very little "work with". If you worked for RJR-Conwood, you're just about guaranteed to get a position in the field. Judge everything you do by cloud system data input for Retail accounts, nothing for wholesalers or Headquarter calls.

    Advice to Management

    Know your limitations. Also treat your employees with respect. Review your "Training Process" as it pertains to job descriptions and responsibilities.
