    Former Employee - Account Resolution Specialist in Milwaukie, OR

    I worked at RPM part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Job was full-time and secure as long as you showed up every day, regardless of performance.

    Cons

    Job was to call past due debtors of accounts sometimes many years old. It was difficult, stressful and not enjoyable at all. All my time was spent on an outbound automated dialer. Bonuses were present but essentially unreachable unless you took inbound calls. Extremely high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vary the job more.

    Pros

    Good thing to put on my resume : global Manufacturing company

    Cons

    Consistent inter department conflict such as internal audit and IT. Managers that just seem totally incompetent. I have heard managers yelling at their employees. just not good.

    Pros

    There isn't much to say that is a pro in regards to this company other than Ok pay, clean, quiet, decent parking,

    Cons

    There are so many different things to list under this section but mainly horrible people. Everyone there needs an attitude adjustment. No one is friendly & warm everyone is cold.

    Current Employee - Regional Manager

    I have been working at RPM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The division for which I worked had tremendous leadership and was very innovative in creating/adjusting products to meet customer demands. The entire group worked well as a team. The products we sold were cutting edge from an environmental and safety standpoint so you could feel good about your contribution to society. The territory I covered (Western North America) is beautiful!

    Cons

    My position required a tremendous amount of overnight/over weekend travel. The HQ was located in Pittsburgh while I was on the West Coast so it was a mixed bag of working autonomously but missing out on the corporate culture and possible career advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen distributor relationships to cut down on employee overnights travel. Provide employees with some idea of a career path. Other than that, keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at RPM

    Pros

    Two week training, good location, easy to get hired, good office location in reference to food, key card protected entrance

    Cons

    The trainer had no clue what he was talking about. Was totally rude didn't give us a tour. No one got a chance to meet anyone bc we were afraid to talk. Human resources is snobby any make you feel as though you're wasting their time. If you like being pressured to collect or risk being fired, this s your job
