    Pros

    The opportunity is there for you to make good commissions. Once you build your book of business and have established relationships with clients in your area you can really have your sales go up.

    Cons

    You wont make an excessive amount of money in the short run or with a small number of clients. The real reward is with greater business. Unfortunately, you are at the mercy of your territory. esearch what sales are you would be placed in to make sure its worthwile.

    Advice to Management

    Make corporate training one week instead of two. Then have us back in a years time for one more week of training to officially change our titles from "field representative" to "consultant".

    Pros

    Easy to get hired and should be used as a short term job until you find a real one.

    Cons

    Income is REALLY bad, In the role of a Territory Rep, you basically get paid to be yelled at by the clients due to the ridiculous employees Tradesmen puts out in the field. Tradesmen will tell you that they have qualified workers for you to place on your sites but in reality, the quality of the worker is no better than what someone could pick up at the local Home Depot parking lot.

    Advice to Management

    Put some money into the sales team, they are the company’s bread and butter. Try hiring managers who are actually qualified to be managers and place a higher value on educated employees. Working for this company felt like the Twilight Zone with the poor decisions, extremely odd people in the corporate office and worst of all, the over the top attitudes of superiority coming from corporate. For God sakes you guys live in Ohio! Joe Wesley should sell to a company who understands how to run a large company.
