I worked at Best Plumbing Specialties full-time (Less than a year)
Great training program! They are extremely experienced in plumbing repair part business. Sales manager Jon Hendrix is top notch. The product line up is second to none. The teams they have to setup for account reps are awesome to help do the research so you can make more sales. Best Plumbing adds value to their clients because of the knowledge and experience they have in the industry.
It maybe a challenge for some people to get up before 6 am and meet with clients and prospects. Starting pay for new territories could be better.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work. The training is excellent.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Best Plumbing Specialties (Talladega, AL) in February 2016.
Got called for an initial interview that went well. They contacted me that day about doing a whole day ride along with their regional manager and someone from the corporate office. Did that and it went well. Was contacted by the regional manager again to talk and was again contacted to set up a Skype interview with 5 different people at the corporate office. These 5 people split the interviews up into 3 sessions. I thought it went reasonably well, except one interviewer seemed turned off because I had plumbing experience! Lol He seemed to think that was worthless, because none of their sales reps have plumbing experience. Anyway I thought the interviews went reasonably well with the exception of the one person. After talking to the last person, I was cautiously optimistic that he was interested in hiring me. Turns out they decided to not offer anyone the job and want to continue looking. I guess they think people are falling over themselves to drive all over the state to sell plumbing parts. They showed their true colors though, so I'm glad it didn't work out. After receiving a generic rejection email, I emailed the regional manager as well as my contact at corporate to thank them for considering me and asking if their was anything that I could work on, or that disqualified me from consideration. No response! I felt since I took off 3 days from my job for the lengthy interview process, the least they could do is respond to my email. Guess once they don't need you, you are worthless to them.
