    Pros

    Great people, great purpose (support the US military), and a very friendly work environment. The company is family owned and values their employees. Career development programs, including outside training and mentoring by the senior management team, are available to everyone.

    Cons

    Company financial performance is closely tied to US military presence outside the US. Troop movement and reductions can cause stress for managers and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify the business. Need to be less tied to changes in troop numbers outside the US. The company sells motor vehicles to US military personnel and foreign nationals. Expand outside the military.

    Pros

    Massive support from management locally and nationally/internationally You get paid a fixed amount through your first 90 days to help you get established and focus on the job at hand without having to worry about money You earn what you are worth Chance to travel wherever the military is stationed Great quarterly and annual bonuses Longevity bonuses paid for three years plus with the company - just complete and have your tax returns accepted Massive longevity of the sales force - many like myself having been with the company for over a decade Tax advantages of being self-employed

    Cons

    Commission only after your initial 90 days, so some may not like this 6-7 day working week - you need to enjoy what you do

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Let's have more marketing campaigns with a simple message Less reliance on CRM please. It dilutes the value of the human interaction from a 1:1 phone call which in turn may help increase staff turnover/decrease the effectiveness of looking after the customers who pay our wages,

    Pros

    Möglichkeit zu reisen Hierbei handelt es sich um einen Verkäuferjob, also kann das Geld ziemlich gut sein, wenn man sich anstrengt. Wie auch immer kann man manchmal keine Resultate sehen, egal wie sehr man sich anstrengt. Es kann viele Hochs und Tiefs geben und saisonabhängig sein.

    Chance to Travel This is a sales job so money can be quiet good if you put the effort in. However, sometimes no matter how much effort you put in you may not see results. Can be very up and down and seasonal.

    Cons

    6 Arbeitstage pro Woche Keine Leistungen Nur Provision - wenn man frei hat, bekommt man kein Geld Inflexibles Management Extrem lausiges Verhältnis von Arbeits- und Privatleben

    6 day working week No benefits Commission only - take time off, lose out on money Inflexible management Extremely poor work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Holen Sie ein bisschen junges Blut dazu. Sie denken immer noch wie vor 20 Jahren. Hören sie auf, reaktiv zu sein und beginnen Sie proaktiv zu sein.

    Bring in some new blood. Still thinking the same way as 20 years ago. Stop being reactive and start being proactive.
