    Pros

    Managers seem to care and focus on employee development. If you play your cards right, you will make over $200k. Sales commission plans have a lot of opportunities to make good money. Customers don’t come first, employees come first All the employees seem to get along in the Charlotte office Culture is first class. Really enjoy going to work All employees get company cars

    Cons

    HQ at times don’t seem to be held accountable P&L targets can be unrealistic Supply chain is a mess Vehicles are driven beyond their life
