I worked at Conway Office Products full-time (More than a year)
Great sales training and work environment. Conway really cares about their employees and treats them great which is something to be valued especially in entry level sales. Every employee is treated like family and is a great atmosphere to be apart of, not to mention, they truly invest in you and want you to be successful. It's a tough industry but it's great sales experience at the very minimum. I feel privileged to have worked for an awesome company like that and really valued my time there. Highly recommend especially to younger people out of college who are looking to get into sales.
Not a lot of negative things to say about the company. Pay is not great, but don't expect to walk in making a ton of money off the bat. Commission structure can lead to pretty good compensation down the road if you stick with it. The company is pretty old school, so they might need to catch up a bit in terms of marketing and some other things, but they have taken strides in that direction.
Advice to Management
No advice, just thankful to have worked for them.
It took 2 months for the interview process to be completed. First there was a sales test. Next, I met with the recruiter who spoke with me for a bit and then introduced me to a manager who didn't seem to happy to meet with me. He said I should read a book on sales. I was called back for a second interview where I met another sales manager. The last interview was actually a power point presentation in front of the sales managers, sales trainer, HR, and the president of the company. After a week had passed, the president wanted to meet with me again. I was finally offered a job
They are not flexible and I wish I had known better because I could have declined the offer and looked for a job with better pay and comp structure.
