    I worked at Grimco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Largest and best sign supplier in the industry. Always very fun internal competitions going on and promotions happening. Offer the best and newest products. Corporate cares a lot and the company has retained some pretty awesome and knowledgeable people. Training is outstanding. Benefits are amazing. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    For Grimco to justify investing in more talent for your area, your sales growth has to look significantly better than that of another similar-sized branch (in terms of # of employees). Order system is very dated.

    Advice to Management

    Sales teams only have so much bandwidth, especially in a business that requires much more customer service than you’d like to admit. 1) Address the potential of a market and invest in it according to the size and saturation, not according to the current employee-growth ratio. 2) Separate sales reps from customer service reps - advice from highly successful corporate executives. 3) Get a better, faster CRM that can also be used in the field.

    Interviewed on the phone with HR and then had an interview with the branch manager. Was called back in days later to interview with the Regional manager. Offered a position the next day.
