    I worked at Restaurant Technologies (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -excellent corporate support team & unity (if you are at corporate)
    -friendly coworkers and fairly good culture
    -environment allows you to take control and get involved if you ask or just do it... it's respected

    this is a sales opportunity for a self-starter, someone used to or aware of how to keep your head down and work on your own

    you succeed best by understanding operations, and not becoming a singular sales person who only sells and then passes off

    Cons

    work life balance is hard to maintain bc you coach customers to call a call center but they do not, and when they do they don't get assistance from operations or call center and still come back to you. you work from home when not in the field, but if you don't prioritize or control your schedule well you will drive forever, or not be productive.

    customer retention is slipping

    this is a long sales cycle. you need about 3-6 months to build a pipeline and be are that a sale cycle can take up to 6 months on average

    Advice to Management

    add bodies: 1 sales person for 250 miles is not penetrated enough. account specialists should all be SMEs and not secondary assistants. hie equally aggressive specialists as you do account managers but clearly define the roles as non-competing.

    continue to improve operations and response times

    use training documents / videos, and make it a standard way of life that all contracts include a set service plan

  3. good company and easy work. cerritos ca

    Pros

    supervisor its a great person , you only work 3 days a week , easy work and you drive different route every night.

    Cons

    do not trust the master drivers , they are not honest, they are hypocrites, they drew no dirty oil just to finish the route early in 7 or 8 hours and they placed 14 hours on paperwork .they cancel deliveries because they have to connect two extensions hoses. amazing how allow them to do that for years.

    Advice to Management

    you need GPS on trucks, master drivers steal hours from the company, new drivers had to do the work they don't do.

    Pros

    The first year or so seemed like a great office environment, a real team attitude where you felt appreciated and part of "the family."

    Cons

    The leadership has no idea how to keep good talent at the company. The office has turned very toxic and breeds resentment. Salaries are terrible unless you are an under-performing manager in sales. There's too much of an "old boys club" mentality there.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs some fresh faces with new perspective. Clearly Sales needs a new approach to success and needs to stop rewarding poor performance just because you're "buddies."

  7. Good Company. The best at what they do.

    Pros

    High energy, get you drinking the cool-aide. Appear professional and well run from the outside. Attempt at training was solid, but execution and consistency once in the field were not the experience most would say they have had. The last few years some very talented and young leaders brought in; most seem to have left already; those that are remaining should be the future of the company.

    Cons

    Incestuous leadership at the top. Consistent non-performers stay in high level sales leadership roles, only looking out for themselves and openly talking about their compensation package and equity in the company. No team work once you leave corporate offices; great ideas always go to someone else and failure always on the lower level, newer staff. One of the most senior but most toxic sales "leaders" has not shame in hiding behind his friendship with CEO and uses that to bully others.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach, be who you say you are as it pertains to culture and values. Get rid of the toxic sales leaders who've been there too long. It costs less in attrition than whatever retirement buy out it costs for the old gaurd. I know of one senior manager who had the highest level of turnover in his region, yet he keeps his position based on success from 3-4 years ago. It's costing the company more to hire and retrain new employees than it would to let him go and hire right from the get go.

    Pros

    Independence, your competence is mandatory if you want to fit in.

    Cons

    Inconsistent with training. Either you get it or you have to "figure it out."

    Advice to Management

    Train you managers to be manager and not belittle the AS position.

    Pros

    Ability to make your own schedule and meet business owners and executives

    Cons

    Not a very strong training and growth structure. Leadership comes and goes and so do sales reps.
    They have a show me attitude and never tske responsibility as a company for mismanagement, lack of training, or not so kind politics.

    Advice to Management

    New leadership is needed to create a company with long term happy employees. Right now it is more of a leave and replace mantality. Everyone is replaceable instead of working with them to succeed.
