    Pros

    I love everything about working for this company. The people are great. The product is excellent. Zep is one of the leading manufacturers of industrial and chemical maintenance supplies on the market today. Management is awesome and always more than willing to help. Lots of room for growth and opportunities for advancement. I'd definitely recommend Zep to anyone looking for a sales position.

    Cons

    Inside Sales team is still fairly new. The only con is that the structure is not all there at the present time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Leadership at Zep is phenomenal. Keep doing what you are doing. You all work so hard and that's what makes this company such a great place to work!

    Former Employee - Branch Manager
    Former Employee - Branch Manager

    Pros

    Fair pay, good communication with mgmt, team approach at all levels, advancement opportunities in Atlanta especially and if willing to relocate. Unlimited potential in sales

    Cons

    It is difficult for sales reps without a book of business to make it at Zep on the pay structure unless their is strong spouse support while a rep builds his/her business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more structured sales rep training program would be helpful. There is not enough criteria used in hiring new reps. It seems as though the process is to throw as many people against the wall and see what sticks.

    Pros

    Quality products
    Professional mgmt and staff
    Opportunities for growth
    Solid benefit package

    Cons

    Difficult for new salespeople to get started without prior connections with buyers in large accounts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that you make it easy for customers to do business with you. This benefit was lost when Zep closed many branches on the local level. Perhaps this was merely a growing pain and has worked itself out by now.

    Not a bad place to work

    Current Employee - Chemical Sales
    Current Employee - Chemical Sales

    Pros

    Great products, great support people, customer service, freedom to develop at your own pace. Enjoy the freedom but you must be mature enough to work autonomously.

    Cons

    Pay is not up to par with other Corporations. Their expenses are a joke. They give you an amount you have to subsidize your own cash to make ends meet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the compensation plan to be competitive. With gas prices nearing $4.00 a gallon give some more incentives. If a Branch exceeds their budget or quota. They give you a dam pen.

    Pros

    you get out of it what you put into it. still a good job

    Cons

    some management has no clue what we do or how we do it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get to know our business before you make decisions that hurt our company. It used to be a partnership between reps and the company now it's the company against the reps, that needs to change
