    I worked at Snap-on full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, You can learn the industry without having to buy a franchise.

    Cons

    Poor management. You feel as if you have 3 (or more) bosses that do not communicate. To advance you will spend 80% of your time in hotels

    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay but not above national standards, decent benefits and insurance. Members of corporate office seem down to earth and realistic.

    Cons

    Plant managers are absolutely awful and do not care about the associates at all. They are great at putting on dog and pony shows for corporate but once they head back to Kenosha all hell breaks loose and it is a daily struggle to meet requirements. Expect to work 6-7 days a week so there is no work/life balance and do not expect graditude in return from managers, you are lucky to get a $25 gift card to Wal-Mart for your Christmas bonus. My particular plant managers manage from the security cameras so that they can relax in their office and not have to step on the plant floor and interact with the disgruntled employees and the real issues that are negatively impacting their day to day jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Interact with your employees face to face more, you might learn something. Stop lying.

    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is that I am able to leave with out total financial ruin, unlike co-workers.

    Cons

    You will lose money out of pocket on any Equipment Sales position. Be careful on Glass Door that you seek out the exact job description. ESS ratings are all one or two star reviews on here. No one actually makes money. The pay plan changes every year. % goes down every year. Ask them to show you previous pay plans. There is no base pay. The non accountable expense plan will have the IRS all over you. The company is run by old school, tech-phobic dinosaurs who are blatantly racist, homophobic, and sexist. The product has gotten worse and worse the last few years. There is no marketing. You will compete with chain stores selling the same equipment branded as Hoffman for less money. Tool dealers will not help you because they are paid by Hunter. No one lasts at this job. The turn over is more than half every year. It is a scam. Run away. Your expenses and the level of micromanaging will give you heart trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Give up now. You failed.
