    I have been working at VWR International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Make your own schedule, and I get to work from my home office. I have a great manager and teammates. I have received high quality sales training.

    Cons

    It is not a 9-5 schedule, some of the work does come home with you. There are millions of products and thousands of suppliers that you have to have some knowledge of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest more "hands-on" product training. It allows the sales force to use the products as our customers would. We get to feel, touch, see the types of products that we are trying to sell to them.

    I have been working at VWR International

    Pros

    Salary Fair Benefits are decent

    Cons

    Too many changes in Managers. Worked at VWR for 3 years and had 7 managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the managers in one place before switching them to different positions or letting them switch. Maybe make it a year mandatory before they can decide to switch to a different position.
