    It is better than collecting unemployment.

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Lansing, MI

    ProsVery Experienced and intelligent workforce. Company is not afraid to invest in the latest technology. It is an acceptable place to work if you do not have an education.

    ConsLack of vacation time, and employees are expected to be available for customers 7 days a week. Scare tactics implemented by management, changes in commission structures are regular. With this being route based sales it is common to have accounts taken from you and given to sales reps earning less, almost a socialistic view of sales territories. The company does not pay for employee cell phones and provides absolute minimal car allowances even though these are required for the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChanging commission structure is one of the worst things management can do to a sales force. Treat your employees well, and you will experience much greater productivity than if you try to motivate with scare tactics. Mergers and acquisitions are not always the best way to grow a business, and rarely are they they most profitable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Management is Unprofessional

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Warren, MI

    ProsGreat friendly coworkers, clean environment.

    ConsManagement and one management trainee did not know how to properly communicate with 'new' employees whatsoever. Employees who are new were screamed and yelled at. Even the first time running a machine. The management & team leaders act as if new employees should know everythIng after two weeks?? People worked hard there and got yelled at. If you are in a position where you are a team leader or manager, you should know how to talk to people without yelling or making them feel stupid. I lost all respect for this organization. Too bad too, because even though the pay wasn't the greatest, the benefits are great and the coworkers were all great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven though my advice probably will not be listened to, management & team leaders should try acting a bit more respectful to new employees instead of prejudging them as not wanting to work. Try not to act like the employees should know everything in a couple of weeks. Most people, if instructed with respect & dignity, are willing to work 120% for an employer.

    Not a lot of direction or feed back given.

    Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsFreedom. If you are making your numbers, then they tend to leave you alone.

    ConsRoad warrior. Little or no feedback from superiors. Could go weeks without talking to my immediate supervisor.
