    DISAPPOINTING-AVOID

    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Houston, TX

    I worked at Sun Coast Resources full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company branding is strong. Company appears to have lots of benefits and advantages. Seems upbeat and energetic. Branding training is available. Marketing support is almost non-existent. There are a few excellent people in the company. However, they are under the tight guidelines of not helping even when they know there are problems for fear of losing their own comfortable position.

    Cons

    Reputation is everything. With that being said, if you are told when hired you're that you're eligible for bonus, will have management support for work, etc etc. in needs to be followed through with. However, your manager will take credit for your customer acquisitions, and or move your customers to house accounts- this is greed at it's finest. If someone in the company makes an error and your customer suffers-becomes dissatisfied and no longer wants Sun Coast as a vendor, you can't punish the Account Rep for a driver or field hand who caused the issue. If you promise bonuses, don't retract the bonus by saying- it's at my discretion- Bonuses are based on production and achievement - if you meet those goals that should = a bonus...period... Too much favoritism and nepotism within the ranks and upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't punish successful sales reps by pulling their accounts to the house...to avoid them reaching achievement levels worthy of a bonus. Look at where the real problem lies when it comes to a customer delivery error or a site error which the sales rep wasn't even on location for. Don't immediately decide that the driver who spilled fuel isn't to blame but the rep who wasn't driving the truck is? Or Field Operations where product is being monitored- runs out. The person monitoring the site needs to be held responsible. You have Quality people filtering through your company who are being beat up by a bad unorganized and irresponsible system. Stop trying to hire your bar buddies and best girl friends to run a corporate entity. Senior Management coming from these resources is not fit to handle, develop and lead any team in these situations.

    Pros

    The non management staff are a group of hard workers. Free tea.

    Cons

    Management is clueless and doesn't understand how to do employee's jobs. Managers degrade employees in email string. Departments constantly fight back and forth. Only have two 5 minute breaks... Seriously. No formalized training, so if your co worker teaches you something incorrectly, it's your fault. The extremely low rate of pay is shocking, especially when you see upper management driving hundreds of thousands in cars daily. Just stay away! There are some good departments but the odds of getting into one are slim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to make sure that managers know what they are doing before being promoted. 2 five minute breaks? Are you serious? Formalized training could help tremendously. It would also be nice if the employees felt cared about instead of constantly scolded. I'm not sure who you guys are paying to land on the best places to work list, everyone there that I have encountered is frustrated with management and upper management.

    Pros

    Small company, benefits are decent

    Cons

    The CFO is only interested in hiring her own people, she looks down on anyone who does not have a fancy college degree, which might be understandable why she does because most of the managers do not know how to manage anything or anyone. There is absolutely no way anyone can advance and reach full potential at this company unless you are somehow related or are a professional brownnoser.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing a lot of good hard workers because you refuse to give them credit where credit is due.
