    Pros

    Great product to work with, computer system easy to use. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Management was corrupt, allowed to damage a persons career and blackball good employees for life.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention when you start loosing multiple employees due to a manager and don't make a person un-reinstate-able, or allow a manager to have that much power. Look at the employee's record.

    Pros

    Nice facilities, company car, gas card and vendor incentives. Good benefits.

    Cons

    A ton of reports. It's hard to be in front of the customer with all the reports. Also, can spend hours in the office putting together quotes. Not the greatest pay and tough to make more if you have a lot of national contracts since profit margins are so low and set by corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more inside people and eliminate or streamline some of the reports so the account manager can spend more time in front of the customer. By having more inside people the AM will spend less time in the office working on quotes.

    I worked at Applied Industrial Technologies as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    central location, laid back, friendly, love their charity work

    Cons

    They do not honor loyalty of their employees that has been with them for an extensive time period.

    I would suggest treating their long time employees with more respect and stop discriminating because of age.

    Many opportunities for growth. Good benefit package.

    Always pushing for more sales. To many irons in the fire. I don't think they know who they want too be.

    Don't for get where you came from. Don't look down on your customer service & sales people. You would be nothing without them.

    Pros

    The company offers great insurance benefits, regional and corporate support. I would recommend this company for anyone looking to break into the industrial distribution selling environment.

    Cons

    Sales training can be a challenge and communication with the service within the service center can be a challenge if one is not a self-starter. Entrepreneurial mindset is a must!!
