    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Allied Wire & Cable full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    owners are not afraid to take risks that have paid off big time!
    compettiive atmosphere makes work fun
    embracing technology for every aspect of the business, not holding back to make changes that help productivity

    Cons

    hold on to some workers that are dead weight too long, makes others frustrated
    mid managers could use some training on being more professional.
    salary was lower, but benefits did make up some

    Advice to Management

    Keep people motivated by being transparent about where the company is going.
    Appreciate the little things people do, not just the sales team.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Allied Wire & Cable in August 2014.

    Interview

    fairly straightforward, sent resume, in person interview with two people, then skype with VP of Sales, skills test, then second test (personality Review) discussed compensation plan, and what would be expectrd of me for the job.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    compensation was far below market average, and frankly I was insulted that they thought I would work for them for that amount
