    A very demanding job that can be very rewarding if you "sell out", and care to have no life outside of work.

    I worked at Snap-on full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of perks, although the hours worked are overwhelming at times. As long as sales are up there is little pressure from above. If you devote yourself to this it can be rewarding.

    Cons

    Hours...there is a lot of pressure from above the moment sales take a dip. I was treated with harsh words from my superiors when things didn't go as they expected.

    I worked at Snap-on full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for; consistent training and new challenges on a daily basis. Set schedule, great pay for the work performed.

    Cons

    Franchisees are constantly dumping on us, blaming us for their own lack of knowledge. Also, they recently let 5 people go on a workforce reduction without any warning or effort to move them within the company. Lack of any mobility within the company also really hurts.

    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work from home, flexibility, ability to make own schedule, great brand recognition. 401k, pension plan and stock buying options.

    Cons

    Need to improve technology tools available to sales reps. Recent changes to the commission structure do not support the current business trends or market outlook. Sales people wear too many hats which takes away from selling time. Compensation is 60 to 75k depending on territory. The car allowance compensation policy need to be restructure to reflect the job demands, gas prices, wear and tear on vehicle. The feeling among employees is that we no longer work for Snap-on or our to provide solutions to our customer needs; we now work for Wall Street.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Guaranteed 40 hours a week, Awesome coworkers, Pay not bad, Lot of OT.

    Cons

    Hard to get ahead in the company, Once your hired in the company you can't bump a temporary employee from 1st shift to 2nd. I was hired on 1st shift and that's why I took the job because I wanted 1st shift but about 6 months after getting hired into the company I got transferred to 2nd and that is not the shift I had put in for and it also took me 18 months to get hired into the company. I was a temporary employee for 18 months. Also it seems hard for some management to say Job Well Done to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees know how much they are Appreciated......

    Pros

    Product is outstanding and the customers are loyal.

    Cons

    Management has become greedy. They company is only worried about the stock holders and themselves

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the team atmosphere I heard so much about before I started Seasoned employees talk about the good old day when the job paid and everybody pulled for each other. This was never my experience in the five years I was employed.

    Pros

    Great people, products and reputation.

    Cons

    Highly political environment that can inhibit good decision making

    Advice to Management

    As a public company the focus is always on quarterly results. Would be beneficial to occasionally spend time on longer term strategies.

    Pros

    Tons of overtime, money to be made if you're willing to put in the time.

    Cons

    Have to start with a temp agency, getting hired is very difficult, as they rarely hire.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to hire on more full-time employees, and you will have a happier warehouse staff. It's very discouraging to do the same work for a lot less money than the select few that are hired.
