    Pros

    Managers aren't too picky about how you get the job done as long as it gets done.
    Hours during the "off" season are relatively easy

    Cons

    The work/life balance can get pretty tough during the holiday season
    You're not given a list of the incentives or commissions you hit so you never really know if you are getting paid on your hard work or not.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more and move on from the past.

    I have been working at Republic National Distributing Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Employees become like family
    -3 weeks PTO
    -Certain days are extremely short
    -Only required to be in an office 1 day/week or less
    -Account managers can be amazing-you develop personal relationships with some of them.

    Cons

    -No raises
    -Zero reimbursement-you’re required to use your car, gas, phone, insurance, car maintenance
    -Accounts will be taken from you with a few days notice-which translates to immediate pay decrease.
    -100% commission plus incentive bonus-great around holidays, but unpredictable any other time.
    -Upper management begs for feedback, then when overwhelming feedback rolls in, they have scripted answers (a pat on the head), and nothing changes.
    -In the end, you can put your heart and soul into this job, but you are just a number to the high ups.
    -When asked multiple times about reimbursements or raises, management initially seem offended and tell us how good we have it. Then brag about how much the company has made, expanded, what brands they’ve bought, etc.
    -It can be an amazing job if you feel valued as an employee...currently that is not the case, as everyone is focused on the merger with BevBreakthru.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees. If 90% of your employees are upset and unhappy about the same things...maybe it’s worth looking into.
