I have been working at MicroAge full-time (Less than a year)
*They give you freedom to work your book of business.
*You get treated like an adult, so no managers over your shoulder asking you about your call count, or if you show up 1 minute late.
*The executive team generally seems to care about my success. I came from a company in which the C-Level execs really separated themselves from the sales team. Not much interaction. At MicroAge it's hard to see a line of where the C-Level ends and sales begins, because everyone talks to everyone.
*There aren't any barriers blocking you from talking to anyone in the company - a true open-door policy.
*The sales team is very well trained, has loads of experience and is very professional.
Sometimes the time change is tough to deal with since MicroAge is on MST - you learn how to work around it.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing because there are a lot of happy sales people here.
The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MicroAge (Tempe, AZ) in April 2010.
I was contacted at my current employer from MicroAge. They were searching for sales executives for IT. I met with the company Sales Vp and a few of the current employees and was shown what some of the earning potential was there. They offer a completely commissioned position at 50% of your profit but give a draw from that for a monthly salary. When I started, there was a small amount of training involved for the first 2 weeks but the expectations were not completely clear, so there was a bit of confusion on my part with how to start at this new company. The training diminished over time for the next couple of months, but every once and awhile there was an hour class to attend.
There was no negotiation for the draw of commissions. I had at one point asked for a larger draw than 3000 a month, but was denied.
MicroAge was just voted as one of the Best Places to Work for the 5th time!!!
I am proud to be a part of an organization that values their associates, rewards hard work, encourages collaboration, and knows how to have fun!!

MicroAge is committed to having FUN with our associates! We recently had a bean bag toss tournament where the top team won a gift card and everyone else enjoyed food and drinks! We ran a Spartan race as a team, completing 4 miles and 23 obstacles in 40 degree weather in 3 hours! Then, just for fun, we had the pretzel mustache food truck stop by for some whimsical snacks! We are always looking for new ways to keep our associates engaged and happy while they continue to work hard each day!
