    Pros

    Major has the best industry employees with the best relationships.

    Cons

    Glazers illegally stole multiple suppliers from Major Brands, legally documented, so there aren't as many brands to sell.

    Pros

    This used to be a great place to work.

    Cons

    Managers are very inexperienced. HR is of no help on anything. Owner Sue is very out of touch. Lots of secrets at this company. If you want a place of business that does not have drama stat far away from here.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the place of the employees. The leadership skills at this company are terrible. A 5 year old has better respect for people.

    Pros

    good, flexable hours, sales force are good, energetic, and fun.

    Cons

    The company is run by employees that never leave the office and are out of touch with customer relations. The sales team work tirelessly only to see their compensation and incentives dwindle and their mangers grow.

    Pros

    the freedom of making your own schedule, no clocking in and out, you went about your day and got done what you needed too. Incentives were usually decent and you could earn extra money. always worked together as a team well, team members would help each other out hitting numbers and goals. health benefits were great.

    Cons

    downsizing. holidays and the last 3 months of the year were always crazy and stressful. Alot of miles added to the car. very hard to use vacation that you earned because there was never anyone to cover your route.
