Approves of CEO

Pros

employee owned, good benefits, somewhat flexible on the branch level, plenty of locations throughout the country, no evening weekend work

Cons

little to no opportunities for overtime for hourly workers, corporate can be a little too hands on at the branch level, upper level taken care of much more than the lower level people.

Advice to Management

don't become too top heavy, invest and pay more to the people at the bottom who are the backbone of the company

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn about a lot of products. Good place to work right out of high school-promote from within.

    Cons

    Horrible pay, commission only paid 1x yr and must make quota for entire year. Travel Mon-Thur required, must pay for gas then get re-imbursed at low rate. Lost money on gas re-imbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your sales reps better!!!! You have lost a lot of great people due to lack of pay. Don't be threatened because they have college degrees, they are a great asset to your company and just want to be compensated accordingly.
