    Great Products Brilliant creative Ideas - Antiquated systems

    Salesman (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsProducts are cutting edge, Benefits are good

    Cons1 or 2 people in upper management think they can do whatever they want and our only out for themselves, creating a hostile environment, which leads to a revolving door for most of sales force. It is really a shame, because their is a lot of potential with the broad portfolio of products to sell.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Look elsewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Route Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsThe only pro i can think of is that its a very independent job.

    ConsWow!! Many Cons to begin with!!

    -Lack of Communication
    -Lack of Support
    -Lot of Travel, Ideal for someone who is not married or has kids
    -Pay was restructured be prepared for slave labor with little pay
    -Lot of extra work with no pay
    -Poor Leadership
    -Quick to fire Veteran employee's with medical issues
    -More about the bottom line then the employee
    -Equipment is low end and out of date (this is how you get paid)
    -Need to stay on top of payroll to ensure you get your correct pay
    -They Cut pay with a week's notice
    -You will work twice as hard for the same amount of money
    - If an issue comes up good luck with getting someone on the phone to back you up
    - If you need to get your truck serviced that will be on your time, if you can find someone who is available on the weekend on your day off
    - Be prepared for your accounts to not comply with their contracts therefore you lose money on your paycheck and basically feel like your working for free.
    - Huge turnover rate
    -Low morale

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to utilize their employees who go that extra mile and you could do everything you can to make sure that they are happy and well compensated. Would be nice to feel like a valued employee and you would listen to us, the employee who is out there on the front line. Quit thinking about your bottom line so much that it affects your employee's morale. If you would treat your employee's right your good ones wouldn't seek other opportunities.

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

    HORRIBLE

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMy position seems to be fairly secure.

    ConsOwner does not care about employees AT ALL. Upper management is complete chaos. Offensive supervisors that also don't seem to care how much they disrespect other employees. You do not get any sick days here. You do not get any personal days. You do not get vacation time until you have been here a year, then it's 40 hrs of vacation until you hit your 3rd year and then you get 80 hours. If you are sick or need to miss, it comes out of your vacation or you have to make it up. For some reason, you cannot just take a day or time off without pay. You do not get the day after Thanksgiving off unless you take a vacation day. Same with Christmas. Management, however, abuses these rules and then expects underlings to follow them to the letter. Absolutely the worst place i have ever worked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI agree with another post that Todd Green should either sell the company or get a clue as to how to treat employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Please!!! DO NOT got to work here.....Please

    Route Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsRoute sales gives you independence

    ConsVery poor management, Will not listen to employees feedback from the field, will not work with employees to resolve issues.. overall.... It is really a poorly run company that is suffers from a lack of communication, poor management and runs on a "by the seat of your pants" mentality. I have no idea how this company is still around.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMr Green should sell the company, and let someone who really cares about the employee take over. This could be a really great company if it was run properly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
