    All depends on which branch you end up at.

    MIT (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat Opportunities
    Good training
    Good bonus and benefits

    ConsLow salary due to heavy bonuses that are hard to hit
    Very little organization
    If you end up at a branch and your branch manager doesn't like you. You will get fired within 1 year.
    Overworked and under appreciated. I worked 70 hour weeks and was told to do more.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more time matching up MITs with their destination branches.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company, but low pay for the responsibility

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou're a decision maker and what you do influences the market. You get to help people run their companies and act as a consultant. Expense account.

    ConsThey do not pay you enough. There are opportunities for advancement, if you go where you are needed. Very demanding goals, and much of your performance is weather related.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    PoolCorp: Great Culture. Exceptional Opportunity.

    Business Development Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsHere are my top three reasons I love working for Pool Corp:

    1. Motivated, Fun Loving, Professional and Driven Culture

    Pool Corp is top notch company that takes itself seriously, but not too seriously. I love being able to use my MBA skills in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere.

    2. Career Paths and Places to Live are Unlimited

    With close to 300 distribution centers in the continental United States, myriad more in nine other countries and our support center in Covington,LA there are so many career paths you can take without having to bounce around between companies. And there are so many options to choose where you want to live and work. This makes the quality of life amazing for me!

    3. Pool Corp Genuinley Cares About their Employees

    PoolCorp provides excellent benefits and training oppotunities. They are always developing leaders and doing their best to provide us with exceptional advancement opportunities.

    ConsThere is only one downside that comes to mind. Since Pool Corp is an international company, many of the jobs available for advancement require relocation.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great hands on company to work for.

    Sales Center Manager (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsYou learn from the bottom up at the sales center location but gain an incredible amount of knowledge, training, and hands-on experience through our MIT training course.

    ConsDuring the height of the season, depending on your location, work is extremely intense. However, it's well worth it if you take the time to cultivate your work environment and well as building and growing your customer relationships.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe are the best in the business. Let us show you how good we really are by letting us make the decisions that really need to be made that can make our business grow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pure enjoyment

    Sales Center Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI wake up everyday wanting to go to work. There are many days that my crew and I look at the clock and wish it was 2:00 pm when the clock says 5:00 pm. The culture of the company is like nowhere else. This company is the first company that I have been a part of that every employee is motivated to do more just because. We truly have a great backing corporately at the branch level.

    ConsThis is a company that has yet to give me any problems. In the past 3+ years I have not had a day where I left thinking I hate my job. I can't think of any Cons

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
