    I worked at Napoleon Perdis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to create my own schedule, and work at the locations that either needed the most sales support or had the most traffic. The pay was well-above the industry, and the earning potential existed.

    Cons

    The company had unrealistic expectations concerning sales goals. The industry is highly competitive, and the brand recognition was not where it needed to be in the United States.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic and achievable goals based on territory and not nationwide averages. Provide more incentives, and listen to suggestions from sales executives actually in the field.

    I worked at Napoleon Perdis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Got experience in my field. A stepping stone to my career

    Cons

    Horrible Pay. They do not look out for their employees. No raise in 3 years. I could go on but let's just say I wouldn't work for them ever again. They left the USA for a reason, that reason is the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Give at least annual reviews. Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Met some pretty amazing colleagues. Great learning experience.

    Cons

    Micro managing. Mgmt focused only on sales, not store relationships or client loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your team with dignity and respect, try to focus on growing your team vs pressuring and reprimanding for a "bad day". The store relationships make or break a business.
