Featured Review

Current Employee - Outside Sales Representative

I have been working at Lawson Products full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great work life balance Plenty of support from DSM & RSM Great training personnel A lot of great new things coming that are proprietary to Lawson I’m not sure what some of these reviews are talking... about but my DSM and RSM will do whatever they can to help you. I even call the corporate trainers when I have questions and never get turned away. Also all the new products were promoting get mailed to you, I’m only buying extras or other items I want to demo

Cons

Every company has challenges in certain departments and ours is the “Specials” but things have been changing for the better

Advice to Management

I will say keep doing what you’re doing.

Current Employee - Area Director

I have been working at N2 Publishing full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Residual income, bonuses, you are the boss, set your own schedule, build relationships, provide value to the community, help businesses grow, lots of support, amazing coworkers and staff,... opportunities for personal growth, leadership opportunities, travel opportunities, recognition, fulfilling, consistent improvements to the system/workflow, technological advances, they listen to your input, franchise cares about you and your family

Cons

your mind/fear can get in the way of doing the work, 100% commission, it's your business/no one to hold your hand/keep you accountable (unless you ask), dealing with rejection/not taking it... personally, self-sabotage can prevent you from being successful

Advice to Management

Keep doing an amazing job!
