    I have been working at PartsBase

    Pros

    PartsBase is an industry leading product that provides a great benefit to its customer base – it’s the type of sale you can put your heart into and really believe in. There are huge upsides for commissioned sales reps to make a lucrative living. The company does have a history that is consistently being presented as present day reality from other posters. The former management put a number on everyone and didn’t take care of the people. The territories were drawn so tightly and the pay/commission structure was written to the point of making it impossible to make money for the sales people. Contrary to what the negative posts about PartsBase are saying, having the owner back in the mix for day to day operations has been nothing but positive. Employees are treated fairly, restrictive territories have been lifted, money is constantly being reinvested to the business adding new technology to sell and perks that make it a great work environment.

    Cons

    Most leads have been worked before, it takes a certain finesse to be successful. Not everyone possesses the right formula to thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making improvements, the company is heading to very promising places!

    Pros

    18% of the sales floor is on pace to earn over $100k this year. Finally the company is being run by quality professionals that value its employees and continually strive to improve the product and the community. A+ rating on the Better Business Bureau. Company has made seven figure investments into infrastructure and product offerings. 23% growth in top line sales. VIP perks for top sales people.

    Cons

    Limited benefits and vacation time for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Additional/continued training for new product offerings.

    Pros

    Can't think of any except it's aviation which I like.

    Cons

    I was also told that things had changed when I was hired, so I gave it a shot. Boy was I wrong. There was a reason that these positive adds kept showing up after bad ones. The guy who owns the place has a real chip on his shoulder and is seriously bipolar. One minute he's smiling the next he's screaming. If valuing your employees is all about what they earn, not how you speak to them or show appreciation by monitoring their every move, then maybe they appreciate their sales managers but not their sales people. The sales managers are the only people that could possibly make 100k as they are the ones who get the leads from all the people they fire that work for peanuts like they did to me. Their geared to sell too. BBB rating. What a laugh. All you have to do is pay to get one.

    Advice to Management

    Can't fix what's broken.

    Pros

    Amazing promises of opportunity and income.

    Cons

    Reality of the bait and switch. The owner encourages his people to lie and misrepresent the opportunity. At least that's what my manager told me. Leads are burned. Tons of turn over. Quick to change the salary on you with promises of commissions that aren't there. People change jobs regularly. No order and no real direction. This job is short term. Odd that after every "real" review a positive review shows up to counter it. Enough said!

    Advice to Management

    Quit belittling your people. Own up to your business. Be fair and honest with your people and stop losing to them while you put all the money in your own pocket.

    Fun Industry to work in, the service works well and really helps companies to save money and increase sales

    Cons

    The owner is bipolar they micromanage their employees too much and the former president was stealing money from the company.

    Learn to listen to your employees more and do treat them like they are untrustworthy.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance with adequate opportunity for career development. Good compensation and benefits. Relaxed environment, reliable schedule and fun co-workers. They recently put in a game room with ping pong, mini golf and now offer an employee lounge to top reps and teams. Great position for some right out of school looking to learn from the industry and gain some experience.

    Cons

    Parking can be a pain in the afternoon. The health care is an excellent plan but isn't cheap.

    Advice to Management

    Add sick days to the policy.
