    I have been working at National Distributing Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -I make my own hours -I don’t work in a cubicle all day -Pay used to be great, is alright now, but that is changing

    Cons

    -Capped commissions (they wait until you build your territory up then cut accounts from you then once you build even less accounts up they cut you again.) -Capped incentives -Capped incentives don’t even really matter anymore because of how every incentive is so complicated or extremely specific. Ex: $0.50 per case for Brand A, but rep must be up on Brand A and whole state must be up on Brand B for incentive to kick... in. -Also, incentives are less about volume (the previous example notwithstanding) and more about placements of new items. New items are fine, but when they don’t sell the company basically sticks the customer with it. -HORRIBLE health insurance. (My previous health insurance copay was $10 and went to $53 when I switched to their coverage, prescriptions went from $14 for 2 to $125+ for the same medicines) -No gas/mileage allowance. This used not to be that big of a deal, but now we can’t deduct our mileage on taxes.

    Advice to Management

    Quit cutting budgets. Quit capping sales territories. It’s more efficient and less expensive for the company to pay benefits to less salespeople than having triple the amount of sales reps.
