  1. I have been working at Wilmar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is certainly a job that fits my interests. I just have to wait and see.

    Cons

    Wilmar has many affilations and I am sure it would be a pressure situation

    Advice to Management

    Did not go into a lot of specifics. Maybe that was my fault.


  2. Horrible place to work. Impossible to please, demand at least 12 hour days, weekends, etc., no flexibility.

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    NO WORK/LIFE BALANCE AT ALL. You have to eat, drink, sleep Wilmar. No matter how hard you work or whatever genius idea/solution you have, they are never satisfied, never a "thank you", pat on the back, just negativity.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage. Training, training, training. Maybe back off on the coffee or whatever it is that makes you too intense or self-absorbed to care.

    Pros

    For the most part, everyone is very nice and supportive. There is a positive energy and attitude at this company. There are very few reports, but still an accountability to manage your account base. They compete well against their biggest competitor.

    Cons

    There is no training or professional development offered. Until a new DSM came on board, there were no Monday morning calls or regular communication by management. The base pay is very low and is non-negotiable. In order to significantly impact your commissions, you really need to grow overall sales tremendously, which probably takes 6-12 months at least. There is no good month and bad month unless you happen to have a huge sale, which is rare.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a training process and offer an intranet site of information and support materials, as well as links to useful forms or email addresses.


  6. Good experience. Forward looking company. Like the leadership
