    The culture is gone

    (Former Employee)

    ProsVery family driven. Good opportunities in the right field. Co-workers are very casual and get along well.

    ConsNo room for advancement. The enviornment and culture has changed. Upper management doesn't reveal major changes in the company until it is public. Not rewarding for your acomplishments. The pay is poor based on the time and effort put in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open and let the employees know current aquisitioins and events. Be available for conversation and growth for employees.

    Indifferent

    Support Specialist (Former Employee)

    ProsPSS as a company cares about its employees
    Yearly Bonuses

    ConsLack of communication
    Management is more concerned about numbers, and less about how they get there
    Moral within the dept was incredibly low

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to work with your employees and actually try to relate to what is going on in the department instead of just ignoring it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company but allows some poor employees to continue offering bad service to reps/region

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company name which is good when you're trying to win new business. Leader in its space. Great options for moving up in the company if you want to live in Florida.

    ConsThey say they move forward fast but I am not seeing it. Too much of a good ole boys club. If you are a relative of someone on the board of directors, you can get a corp position you clearly should not have. Sorry, just my opinion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally look at how our regional managers act. Hire a 20-something with frat boy mentality, get just that in the field. This company could lead by example to ensure a more professional environment.

    Employer of Choice ?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPSS has good market share and is a solvent and stable corp. There is a small amount of turnover in general.

    Consalthough there is a small amount of turnover and the company is constantly performing well employees are made to feel like thier jobs are constantly in jeapordy. They run programs to "save 300 jobs" with the emplyees and then tell the investors we are spot on. Typical hypocritical corprate stuff. they like to tell you they care about you and thats why they want you to save them money.

    Advice to Senior Managementdont become too big to be agile. Our ability to adapt and overcome situations makes us the distributer of choice. When we limit our selves by installing things like roadnet. we cannot service the customer in certain situations without penalizing the drivers. Touting it as the system ups usses does not hold much water since UPS used it decided it diddnt work and got rid of it at a loss. Shop PSS select items better for quality. Customer satisfaction is at stake.

    If going into Sales, be careful

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat opportunities
    Senior Management is realistic about challenges facing the industry, and therefore has a customer focused business agenda
    Create your own schedule
    Unlimited income potential

    ConsFor someone "pioneering" a territory (not given any accounts), PSS asks for 3 years but only pays you for 18 months, after that, you are on a straight commission. Recruitment makes a lot of promises but its a totally different story when you are in the field. People who are given business have it MUCH easier. This is much more like starting your own company, which can be very difficult without the proper training (also not the best). Great company to work for, but if interviewing, make sure expectations and what you are getting yourself into are clear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining needs to be revamped- make sure leaders are enforcing ride days with reps/trainees. Pay attention to rookies- they want to succeed but need your help!
