    I have been working at Tuff Shed full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    they do listen. My Regional Sales Manager is always asking what is going well and also what I would improve. A few of my ideas have gone up to the top. I'm proud of the product we sell. I like my managers. The benefits are pretty good. They have a 401K plan that doesn't have umpteen years to vest - it's immediate. When corporate upper people come to visit - they listen and talk to you like you're a real person.

    Cons

    Some companies have commission plans that award the top 5% with even more commission. they should look at that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like the management.

    I have been working at Tuff Shed full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I learned a lot about sales.

    Cons

    Management constantly adding new sales reps and dividing the same amout of sales among more people. Very little balance from work and social life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding more sales reps. Let the reps you have keep making you money instead bringing on more people in hopes of doubling sales for each new person bring on board.

    Great benefits, great pay, great group of people to work with and for. Love the day to day customer contact on the phone. And you truly do learn something new every day with this company.

    Cons

    Every job is not perfect, you just have to learn to deal with the things that you do not like and learn how to make it a better work place for you.

    I worked at Tuff Shed full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Informal, Company Founder still involved. Good life balance culture. Making a great comeback from some lean years following economy crash.

    Cons

    Sometimes lacks structure, no clear path upward. Needs MUCH better customer care follow through. Would benefit from better organized input from employees at all levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More input from field in non-threatening setting

    Former Employee - Builder in Denver, CO

    I worked at Tuff Shed full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, hours (if you need a lot in the summer), pay was okay, they do really quality work, great customer service, effective building style/speed, and learned a lot of good skills.

    Cons

    Not the most professional atmosphere, but you can't expect much in the construction industry. The equipment was often not working or took a long time to find in the shop. The sites were often difficult to build due to not being inspected beforehand. Warehouse had several timely mistakes in packing trucks. Safety was great already, but director would require unnecessary precautions that hindered construction.
