    Pros

    TTI offers self-driven people the opportunity to grow, develop, and create their own career path while being supportive and investing in their employees. Great company culture that fosters taking on responsibility and challenging yourself to get to the next level. Amazing structure allows you to make the most out of any situation and set goals to achieve what you want out of your career.

    Cons

    Very fast paced means that if you are not dedicated or don’t want to go the extra mile you won’t see the same results as those who do.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Overall a great company culture and there is definitely room to move up in the company. Great benefits

    Cons

    Day to day can become boring and monotonous. Spending the day in a Home Depot isn’t engaging.

    It can get a little boring during the down seasons

    Advice to Management

    Add some more responsibility to the more seasoned reps to help "intern" for a department they would like to join in the future.

    Pros

    You get free gas because you have to drive a red f-150 that has the company logo “Milwaukee” plastered all over it

    Cons

    There isn’t nearly as much personal growth as advertised. You stand in a Home Depot all day getting people to buy a product neither you nor they are sure they actually need, so that your numbers look better than they did last year.

    Pros

    Benefits, compny truck, teammates your age, management it great

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism, huge lack of opertunties if not willing to move to corporate in SC or WI. Average pay. Not loyal to employees. They see them as disposable and are willing to let go to bring in a replacement from college. You will get burnt out of this job really quick since it’s a glorified Home Depot sales role

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees better. It is often preached in groups and meetings but not done on the lower level or individual level. It’s not a true value.

    Pros

    Not really much but the car

    Cons

    Racist company culture with no minorities at the top of the corporate ladder. Management were sleeping with SSR’s then promoting them. Nepotism. Company was sued for unethical issues like working off the clock. if you questioned management about illegal activities they just fired you. HR Jane Miller is a joke.. how she has a job I still don’t know. This job is a joke and the management lies in the interview. It is a good job fresh out of college. But plan your exit. If you don’t look the way they like. You won’t go up in the company which is usually an all American white man or woman. So African Americans don’t even bother. You are a slave in their eyes as labor. And if you wonder why you don’t see any African Americans in corporate MI and SC that’s why. Dan abbot is a cult leader who uses fear based management to lead his sheep to unknown pastures. Toxic company culture. If you aren’t cool with your manager or sleeping with him. You probably won’t go up in the company

    Advice to Management

    Stop your racist politics, I saw right through it from day one. Stop lying and saying there is growth because there isn’t and you won’t be promoted after a month. How you haven’t been sued for racial discrimination still baffles me. Oh it’s because you fire people and have at will employment . I forgot
