More Pros and Cons

  1. "Know before you go!"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at PoolCorp (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked in a independent setting.

    Cons

    There was a great lacking in company training. There was a more "watch me once and then you will know how to do it", attitude.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a comprehensive training program on not only the industrial side of the business but also on the vast computer system. Then software system needed to replaced years ago.

    Pros

    The bonus program is a great incentive. They have good benefits. This is a good company to get a good job experience.

    Cons

    Unfortunately anyone in the Operations field are not celebrated. It's all about the sales only. Rah, rah sales...Operations people get pushed to the side.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees in the Operations department are as important as your sales force. I would suggest to stop teaching your sales force that they are superior and the only future of this company. It's a mistake that will cost you the best and most loyal employees.
