    Pros

    This a great job for those who don't mind working part-time. Management and team members are very pleasant and helpful. Management has gone above and beyond in times of special need and unfortunate circumstances,. You schedule your own work time, as long as tasks are completed within time frame and guidelines. Must be a people person and be very organized. This is not a difficult job, if you are outgoing and can manage yourself properly it is no hassle no headache.

    Cons

    Only part-time hours available, lots of driving if you don't mind. Pay is OK

    Advice to Management

    More hours for those who need/want it. Increase mileage reimbursement. offer healthcare benefits.

    Pros

    - You get experience working with some of the largest CPG brands.
    - Good first job on your resume

    Cons

    - Management (GSMs) say they care about your success which is the farthest thing from the truth. They only care about their bonuses.
    - They will try and sell you on their "top notch" training program. There are ACs that have been there for 9-10 months and have still never been to a training.
    - HR is a joke. Numerous times coworkers and I called them and our HR rep would say that they had no answers to our questions.
    - Pay is low.
    - If you don't like your manager - day to day is horrible and it's hard to switch teams.
    - Company won't be around in a few years due to not being innovative.
    - They have laid off a lot of people in the past year due to finances.

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your ACs/PCs/AAs our opinions matter
    - Actually train your sales people to be sales representatives rather than someone to process your contracts
    - Company culture needs A LOT of work.

    Pros

    - Generally a 9-5
    - Good first job for your resume
    - If in right position there is a clear path/sales development program
    - Pretty easy interview process and hire a lot of people at once

    Cons

    - Personally found everyone to be super fake - found a few good friends, found it hard to trust others
    - no transparency/ shady conversations that happen within your teams authoritative figures
    - if don't like your manager - day to day is horrible and it's hard to switch teams
    -incredibly low salary
    - a ton of gossip

    Advice to Management

    -Be more transparent -- communicate with the AC/PC instead of having conversations with your gsm through glass doors that everyone can hear/builds anxiety
    - pat your AC/PC on the back every now and then -- of course they are just doing their job, but it's tedious and they know that having been in the same shoes -- remind them they appreciate you
    - don't gossip - a ton of gossip among AD's/ more tenured employees
