    I have been working at Wimsatt Building Materials full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Truck with gas card. 100k earning potential. Great Health Care plans. If you are willing to invest your time into your territory the benefits are enormous. The support from management is based on level of commitment you show, so you control your own destiny. As a sales professional, getting support when needed and the freedom to get done what needs to be done, is an ideal environment for success. I found this to be an ideal environment to thrive.

    Cons

    The job requires knowledge of several different product lines and best installation practices. So the first 6-12 months can be challenging in getting up to speed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focused attention on new employees my help getting off on the right foot and set them up for earlier success.

    Pros

    You get a nice truck and free gas for work and personal use. But in the end, even that is not even close to being worth the hassle of working for them.

    Cons

    Everything, you will not enjoy your life if you work here. They move accounts around so you never make commission, the commission structure is designed for you to behind big time after the first two quarters. I spent 18 months of hell there. Left because they took 50 accounts I opened and gave them to other sales guys. whaaaaaaat, who does that? terrible terrible company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its so bad that I can not even refer to the management team as managers. They are so out of touch with the real world and how to treat people. Again, for your own sake if your reading this. DO NOT take a 40-45k base and a truck. Not worth it. Bad News here!

    Pros

    If you dont have a family, a lot of overtime in summer.
     Good Benefits. Bonus yearly $2000 if your not late.

    Cons

    Management is disrespectful to their employees. Horrible management. Lift heavy shingles all day long onto the roofs no matter how hot or cold it is outside. Risk your life on the roof tops. Work 6am -8pm in the heat with no air in trucks in summer and no heat in the winter. No room for advancement. Pay raises very minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect. If you dont give them respect, the employees do not have respect for the company and it shows in the quality of work.
