Consultants of Fishbowl, I'm 31 and have ~$2m. No kids, student loans, etc... I'm also getting CTL'd. If you were in my position, would you scramble to get a new position or retire early?

    Ability to make what you want on how much time you put in. I'm lucky to be in a region that has a great district manager. Great outlook now part of MSC

    Lots of Work for Not Much Pay-MSC Employees Paid Well-Class C Paid Poorly

    Pros

    Decent group of people in the office, lots of knowledgable vets from the Barnes merger. Lots of lo als too so its not an odd mix of northerners. Most of the workers are pretty engaging on a personal level

    Cons

    Sales is over paid in every area for very little personal effort in their record keeping and omputer work, bad habits run abound. Managers support this on both ends. Very little interoffice support for internal/external people being allowed to bully and break rules at the expense of other office employees. Managers are nice but not as title-free as fhey claim to be. The recent survey results were relayed a bit different than the staff felt they would have read.

    Expectations vs Reality

    Nov 7, 2017 - Customer Sales Specialist 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This job provides a lot of autonomy. You are in control of your territory schedule to accommodate the client's needs and your life schedule. If you are meeting or obtaining your sales goals, unless you are established can seem unrealistic for new territories and new hires.

    Cons

    Management turnover is high; I had three District Managers in the first 5 months of my employment. Upper management is very disconnected from what takes place in the field and sets unrealistic quotas. Favoritism shown to top reps, at least in the district I was in. You are responsible for VMI orders, restocking, PO tracking (to make sure you get paid), inventory tracking and re-allocation from other distribution centers, managing out of stock issues internally and with clients....too many hats to wear when you are hired to be a salesman.

    Good company, hard to fall in love with

    Aug 26, 2015 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good out-of-college position to have, really shows you what sales can be. Lots of free time when you're starting out, but that quickly goes away once you establish your territory and build accounts. Great management and great vision for the future. CEO definitely knows what's going on and appreciates all his employees.

    Cons

    Very little training other than ride-alongs. Sales training could definitely use some tuning. Two weeks is not enough. Hard to wrap your mind around all the products being offered to the customers and unless you have experience working in a repair shop, you likely won't know much going in.

    Customer Sales Specialist

    Jan 7, 2016 - Customer Sales Specialist in Central Valley, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    As a CSS, you are deemed an outside sales representative, meaning you do not need to report to an office. Because your boss isn't hovering over your shoulder, you have free reign of your time and how you want to allocate it. The position offers a salary, as well as bonus incentives and commission.

    Cons

    Because of the isolation, help isn't always readily available from the top. You'll be driving a lot from account to account. There is a bit of manual labor involved with conversions, and the regular VMI that you would provide.

    Good company with lack of change management

    Nov 6, 2014 - Strategic Account Representative in Pittsburgh, PA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You dictate your work schedule and your success. You get out what you put in to the job. Decent pay and opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Must be good at networking internally and handeling challenging people. You work with them everyday and closely. Lots of change is happening within the company, for the better, but it is handeled poorly and rolled out terribly.

    Pros

    Being purchased by MSC was a really good thing as it opened up tremendous opportunities to offer more products and better service to the customer.

    Cons

    The leaders assigned at the time of the acquisition treated the employees of the newly acquired business unit like second-class citizens.

    Pros

    So much freedom! Make sure you are a self-starter and morning person. Flexibility is key!

    Cons

    The freedom you have is directly correlated to the amount of miles you put on your personal vehicle.
