    Pros

    In the region I am in there are several talented individuals, from the reps up to the RSM. We are encouraged daily. Barnes has an extensive education and information system. They are truly concerned about their people. They want the reps to be successful, and they want us to have fun.The plan expectations can be daunting, but once you get your head around it, it's challenging and fun. I am GRATEFUL for every day I get to go to work for Barnes. This is actually the second time I have worked for Barnes. Every job has it's frustrating issues. You just have to put your head down and plow through.

    Cons

    Antiquated wireless capabilities.( still better than doing it by hand!)

    Advice to Management

    Design a new hire " things you'll need" package.

    Great Pay, work hard and it pays off. NO micromanagement , great culture. company was not set for major growth which justifys the sell off. great reputation in the industry. pays salary plus commission. best people i have ever worked with. the hr team does a great job of hiring, average employee is with company forever

    SOLD off to MSC, Money Money Money, this company did not have that focus until the MSC purchase. we were all about the customer.

    Stay true to the Barnes Promise
