I have been working at Rocky Mountain Instrument full-time
The people here are great and they make high quality products. They encourage a consultant sales approach and I really like that.
Commissions are very good if you apply yourself but be prepared for months of surviving on a very low base salary. This is capital equipment sales and it takes an average of 6 weeks to close a lead, often much longer, then it's 3 months until you are paid commissions.
Advice to Management
Be more forthcoming to sales hires about what they are facing.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Rocky Mountain Instrument (Denver, CO).
The interview was mostly the CEO Steve Hahn, talking about how you can make over $100,000 a year but then you are giving the bottom of the barrel for accounts, and you will continue to lose bids due to RMI out pricing themselves. Steve Hahn talks a lot of game but can care less about you unless you perform well.
