I have been working at Sage Products full-time (More than 8 years)
Great products, great company, great job, want to retire here.
The commission structure could be better. It promotes sand bagging because if you lose sales in a product category then you best not be selling it till next year.
Advice to Management
Stop applying your sales pressure to the sales reps. we get it. we want to make money and sales too
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sage Products (Cary, IL) in May 2017.
I will start with the warning before describing the interview. - I interviewed with the NPD team. Less than two weeks after my second interview, someone from this team communicated to my current employer that I had interviewed there. So, my boss and bosses' boss are now aware of this. It's been 3 weeks since my boss sat me down and asked me about this so time will tell what happens at my current job. This is a clear violation of professional courtesy and puts into question the ethics of this team and/or company. May the interviewee beware...
Straight forward panel style interview with mostly behavioral based questions. Multiple stages starting with a phone screen with HR, then a panel style interview with the working team, and finally an open discussion/meet and greet with the hiring manager and management team.
The interview went well and everyone was professional and engaging (to this point). Communication was good with HR though the process took several weeks. This is understandable given that many members of the team had/have busy travel schedules. Did not get the offer, but did appreciate the effort from HR to call and personally convey the message with feedback on the interview.
I was very positive with Sage even though I didn't get the offer UNTIL word got back to my current employer that I interviewed there. Very disappointing.
