    I worked at Drummond Company full-time

    Pros

    Gave great information on how to close the deal via sales dvds.

    Cons

    I think they would better serve the new employee (and themselves) if they allowed a couple of weeks "shadowing" a successful salesperson.

    Advice to Management

    After having the dvds on how to make the sale, have a successful salesperson mentor them and possibly shadow them for a couple of weeks to see how to overcome hurdles.

    I have been working at Drummond Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall a good company to work for, caring and understanding bosses. Flexible Work Schedule.

    Cons

    Due to Coal Prices Projects are on hold, and CAPEX is non existent and so necessary and needed equipment upgrades are put off until they fail.

    I have been working at Drummond Company full-time

    Pros

    Overall Drummond Co. treats their employees fairly. There is no complaints about the Co. itself.
    They try to keep their employees especially their salaried. The pay is adequate and fair.

    Cons

    The upper management at the mine itself tries to micro manage every aspect of the jobs. Especially the mine manager who has not worked underground and tries to run other departments that he is not directly over.

    Advice to Management

    Be more people oriented and stop treating people as though you are superior to them. Allow people the oportunity to prove their worth to the company.
