I worked at Tradesmen International full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

putting people to work, fun environment, meeting new people, not stressful,

Cons

low salary pay according to market, very poor vehicle allowance, mileage reports is a waste of time, computer system is very slow, field reps are required in office to much.

Advice to Management

raise salaries another 10k, give back 5% commissions taken away from us 2 years ago, raise car allowances to 500.00 plus .20cents per mile to cover gas and oil changes. we are left with vehicles that are worn out with no compensation. the current 400.00 does not even come close to what the cost is, Upgrade the computer system for faster more electronic friendly for work orders and such. field reps left in field for full days. with maybe one or two days a week be in office for an hour or so for sales meetings. when a rep is building territories don't divide and separate. not fair to rep or customers . pay commissions in full once customer pays. try doing these and your turn over with reps would be a lot less and the company sales would improve dramatically.

    Pros

    If you really need a job and they make you an offer. There is a fair degree of autonomy, which is nice.

    Cons

    When business is slow they have no ideas to help. They just pound you to do more of the things that aren't working. Management consists of people who were successful in the business when orders were falling off of trees and don't know the first thing about selling in a resistant environment.

    Advice to Management

    If you receive a buyout offer, jump on it. Let someone who understands how to run a business buy it instead of using it for their personal ATM.
