I worked at Tradesmen International full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Getting out of the office and getting a paycheck (although it's barely above minimum wage) are really the only "positive" things if you could call them that.

Cons

Crappy office located in Fife. Employee desks are directly across from the restrooms so when people "do their business" you have the good fortune of knowing (on all accounts). Field reps still required to go back to the office at the end of the day. Micromanaging environment. Required to use personal cell phone (vs. company provided). Manual administrative processes thrive - primarily because of the antiquated technology. Ultimately - big mistake.

Advice to Management

Get qualified people, who actually HAVE experience managing people. Managers should empower and mentor employees NOT micromanage them.

    I have been working at Tradesmen International full-time (More than a year)

    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".
