    Pros

    They want to promote from within, and will give you every opportunity to do so.

    A lot of travel within your field group. Lot of nights spent in hotel rooms.

    Less travel. Engage employees in the field more and get in tune with what's going on in the field group.

    Pros

    Great company
    Great benefits
    Always interesting and leading the market
    They take care of their employees in my experience.

    Cons

    As with any sales position, there can be long hours but it's worth it if you enjoy your career.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes there are too many chiefs... there were three different managers who all considered themselves your boss

    Pros

    Assembly Personnel, Pension Plan and Clean Assembly Floor

    Cons

    Tedious Data Entry, Production Clerk Type Duties 70% of Time, Logistical Support, Lack of Policy & Development (exempt & hourly), Limited Communication and Lack of Time For Process Improvement Due To Supervision Being Saturated With Other Areas of Responsibility. Lack of Budget For Process Improvement but Pushed to Implement w/out Appropriate Funds. Safety/Wellness Program is Highly Bragged about but almost 100% outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    Put fundamental policies in place and ensure they are visible/transparent to the entire plant. With no foundation progress and change is difficult. Have training and development opportunity for both assembly and management personnel. Utilize all the talent at the plant including hourly personnel to take the safety and wellness programs to exciting levels and leave the contractor to less able locations.

    Good management. A lot of people you can ask for help but you need to take initiative

    I worked at Snap-on full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun job, for the most part. Meet lots of interesting people. Get to play with all the new tools. The conventions are great. You can make good money if you're a great salesman.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. Salaried, so you are always on dutie. Commission/incentives are often hard to reach. Not much support from local managers.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be local support. The regional trainers and managers do not like the MCSM position. They make it hard on the guts trying to do a good job.
    Someone that supports the MCSMs in each region would be great and very helpful. The regional leaders always prefer the franchise owners.
