    I worked at Applied Industrial Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, paid my relocation costs. Always 40 hours a week.

    Cons

    Regional Sales Manager can not control his territory. Always fighting between branches. Plays Favorites and does not have his employees best interest at heart. He is focused on keeping corporate happy and that is it.

    They'll promise you training.

    Cons

    No Training. If you don't have an engineering background or your hydraulic certifications, don't bother. They will promise you training, then hand you some books and tell you there's google.
    Management isn't helpful. You've got to ask questions, and then you're judged for asking questions. They appear helpful in the beginning, then they watch you fall.
    You can work hard and still be asked to leave. Then they'll tell whoever that you've lied on call reports.
    No interaction from upper management after you're hired. Chain of command is the only way. And that doesn't work because local management isn't on your side.

    Advice to Management

    Don't report exceptional monthly numbers, then fire a guy for poor performance.
    Provide goals and the support to learn.

    I have been working at Applied Industrial Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is investing in me and others. I like that the company is giving me the chance to train and advance. Surprised more people are not taking advantage of the training. My co-workers are willing to share their knowledge and help me when I have questions.

    Cons

    Have to know where to look to get some of the tools. You can ask but it seems like not everyone has caught on to what company is offering.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more to us. Help people like me get up to speed faster and keep rewarding performance.

    Continue to grow the service centers and speak to the little people that get things done so you can continue to get a bonus

    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.
