    Pros

    I was provided a company vehicle

    Cons

    This job is nothing to do with sales, it's simply driving all over heck and back cleaning up your store assigned cigarette space, balancing high on ladders hanging tobacco signs (real classy!) and literally cleaning filth from the stores counters. Absolutely disgusting! I can't even believe I had to go through an interviewing process for this. I value my secondary education and value myself even more so I got out of here as fast as I could. The pay is horrible and the people associated with this company are even more horrible. Be fair warned, this is NOT A SALES JOB. Don't fall for it.

    Advice to Management

    Please make it clear that this is a job cleaning up after others.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Everyone works together as a team. Very fun place to work. Very independent structure. Plus you get a company car

    Cons

    It is kind of difficult being able to grasp everything at first, I can only imagine how hard it would be if you did not have a background in tobacco.

    Advice to Management

    Longer training period.

    Pros

    Company Car, Salary is somewhat fair

    Cons

    Travel is long, management is lacking in understanding it's team members, no team training or team building. Work-life balance is an extremely difficult task with workload. Tough working for the smallest tobacco company...customers recognize this organization as "the bottom of the barrel". Account coverage is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how the company vision is expressed to your employees. Review your management team and ask for feedback from employees on their training. Politics limit chain and retail teams ability to work together....never have I seen an organization that is so unwilling to work together.

    Pros

    Good management with vision and trust. OK pay and secure job. Good benefits and 401k. People know direction of the company and what to do.

    Cons

    Tobacco business so is not a popular work with most people. Bonuses could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Best place I've worked in tobacco so keep us going in the right direction.

    Pros

    Pay is OK, new company vehicles, health insurance and 401K program. Leaders who are honest ( a big plus). not a perfect job but what is? You work alone most of the time but my manager works with reps and knows what we have to put up with in stores. Most reps seem to like working here and I have worked in some not so good jobs in the past so I know the difference.

    Cons

    You have to be a worker in stores as you are on your own most of the time. If you're not able to motivate yourself, this will not be a good job

    Pros

    Company vehicle, pay was middle of the road.

    Cons

    Left on your own to sink or swim. Only 2 training sessions in 17 months. Management had zero interest in helping me learn the business.

    Advice to Management

    Hire 'working' regional managers
