I worked at Wilkins Solutions full-time (Less than a year)
Independent sales, multiple product lines, decent but extensive training.
What they tell you it is and what you find don’t even come close. First off they are unknown outside of SC, no advertising; expectation is the feet on the street (REP) will create the brand.
You will go through extensive but good training on 250 companies; I lost count on the offerings. This alone is a big problem if you don’t have a strong background in this industry AND a wide network of connections. Like to say they are very current and stay connected through their technology. Yes and no, CRM requires constant updating, they you want to constantly monitor and contribute to bulletin boards, etc. Numerous webinars a week, 2-3 conference calls-same week. This stuff alone can suck up 40 hrs, and some of this is at night.
I did find the two positive postings amusing and definitely a plant. The poster talks about how great the management is, not how great the financial opportunity is, and the average salary is a flat out lie.
Advice to Management
This company is ten years old, if really want this to grow you need to invest in some advertising, maybe base salaries to the right people but at least be honest.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Wilkins Solutions (Las Vegas, NV) in June 2013.
Interview was over the internet and finally phone. You need to pass a qualifying test online before the phone interview. There is a calculation and quote section that needs to be completed. The company is very nice. All the way through everyone that I spoke with was very helpful. It is a good company.
Reasons for Declining
There were some personal issues that needed to be taken care of.
