    Cons

    No real policies and procedures in place. Employee there was extremely insubordinate and nothing could be done to change it.

    Advice to Management

    Very difficult job

    I worked at Johnson Supply full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people who work there are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Johnson Supply has strategic issues with management and company direction. In my opinion, they take an adversarial approach to their employees, and upon leaving will not honor business norms by terminating you for giving 2-week notice and not paying out earned vacation. My recommendation to existing or future employees would be to not provide a notice period and preemptively use up any accrued paid time off.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of being scared to pay employees any dollar you think they may not have earned, try proactively ensuring everyone is compensated correctly. People have left and will continue to leave until this is resolved.

    I have been working at Johnson Supply full-time

    Pros

    Works with your schedule, nice co workers. You see people that have stayed her 20+ years, which is different. Employee owned. Decent insurance.

    Cons

    Lack of management. No opportunity for promotion. The only way to get a raise is to take stupid "training" classes, which you have to do at home. Last time I checked, Im not enrolled in college. The people that truly work the hardest are NOT appreciated whatsoever, just talked about behind their backs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people that are keeping your business afloat. Don't start wondering what happened when they quit for a job elsewhere.

    I have been working at Johnson Supply full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for medical dental and vision suck. Can get off when needed. Training provided but is more of a waste of time for a seasoned salesperson

    Cons

    Promotions are non existent. Raises are even less existent. Management is insecure and completely unaware of how to manage and motivate their sales team. Management is lazy. Their is zero accountability. Most that leave the company end up bettering themselves financially.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your talent or continue to lose them. Have check and balances among your middle management. Fire incompetent people.

    I have been working at Johnson Supply full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Good possibilities if they can figure it out. Low turnover in many departments aside from the sales department.

    Cons

    Will say that they are a family oriented company but far from it. I would stay far away from this organization. Wanting to grow their business but have no clue on how a salesforce works. Compensation is low and the incentive plan is a matrix and convoluted. Half rated management with little experience on sales and selling with in a market. Management team is weak with far fetched ideas of grandeur. if you are looking for a sales career filled with milk runs this may be the place for you. The organization would like to say they have sales Consultants, but have no clue on the process or understanding of a consultative approach to selling and building partnerships...

    Pros

    Small company , easy to get to senior management. Once you are in you have a secure position. Inovative company within industry.

    Cons

    Goals are difficult to reach, compensation is low. Must take care of most dutties in the sales cycle, quoting, ordering, checking up on deliveries... Support is sporadic.Turnover is high.

    Advice to Management

    Train all employees better. Do not settle to be as good as the competition. Be the best.

    It is a local company that takes care of its own people.

    Low pay,and since it is a smaller company,promotions only happen when somebody quits or is fired.

    Take a look at how your employees are compensated compared to the competition.
