    I have been working at Techtronic Industries North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Been with the company for 7 months now and we have a great work-to-life balance, decent pay, decent benefits, you get a lot of tools for demonstration purposes but also have them for personal use, a Milwaukee F-150 to use for personal and business use (all of the gas is paid for by the company too), growth potential if work for it and best of all...I talk and use tools all day

    Cons

    There are two positions that you can start at with TTi - Single Store Representative (SSR) or a Multi-Store Representative (MSR). As an MSR myself I prefer my role over an SSR because I get to be in different locations and build business within a territory of 5 stores, where as an SSR is tied to the same store every day. With that said, SSRs are place in high volume stores, and produce most of the sales, thus receive more support and perks (such as quarterly bonuses) than MSRs do. It also seems as if SSRs have a better chance for promotion within the company.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management on all levels are very respectful and helpful.

    Pros

    Great, hard working, and motivated people within the company. Good benefits: company vehicle, health, retirement. Opportunities for growth in corporate locations (Wisconsin or South Carolina). Excellent training program with many opportunities for hands on product knowledge.

    Cons

    You are the companies representative in The Home Depot and will experience the challenges of retail. The role is more merchandising than sales. Bonus structure is capped.

    Advice to Management

    Shake things up a bit and move reps to different stores on a yearly basis so they do not become complacent in the work environment.

    Pros

    - Fully paid for Milwaukee F150, including gas and insurance
    - Lots of freedom to manage your stores
    - if you have one store, much easier to meet expectations
    - hours are good, 7-3:30
    - immediate 401k and PTO

    Cons

    - very much depends on who you land as a manager, great managers give a great experience, but poor managers makes it miserable
    - you have 1-5 stores, and if you have 5 you're expected for all 5 to be up to date as if you had 1 store, 40 hours a week

    Advice to Management

    Make smaller teams, managers with no more than 5 reps. Managers who have 15 reps across 2 states, plus requirements to recruit and work with HD management makes it miserable for reps

    I worked at Techtronic Industries North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great first job out of college! Opportunity to move up in the company as they hire from within. Great benefits and for a entry level position it pays very well. You get a nice Ford F-150 to drive around, they pay for all gas and insurance fees. Also the schedule is almost always Monday-Friday 7am-3:30pm.

    Cons

    Nothing is really bad about the position, the only problem is that they send tons of boxed filled with point of purchase signage, fixtures, and displays straight to your home. Depending on the time time of year you can expect anywhere between 20 to 40 packages a month.

    Pros

    Great starter job for a college grad, especially if you can snag a single store rep position, which gives you the chance to focus more and keep a more regular schedule.

    Cons

    If you aren't in the leadership program, growth opportunities are limited. Most likely to move up you will have to relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Define consistent goals for reps or allow reps to take more full ownership of marketing strategies in store, build in a commission structure to incentivize more effective marketing.

    Pros

    Some good people work here.

    Cons

    Work life balance non-existent. Shunned for wanting a life and family. Those that have families never get to see them. Execs with families make sure those underneath them know that they haven't seen their kids all week or even for weeks to drive in a point of sacrifice for work.
    When a new hire is going through interviews, behind the doors "in private", execs look down on those in relationships, wanting marriage or kids. If you are 100% single and an athlete you are in the club. Once you have the job, you need to be a "yes man" - anything else will not get you anywhere.

    When it comes to the CEO - be scared. Everyone in the building hides when he is in town. If things aren't perfect, or you say something he deems wrong/doesn't agree with, your fired. So everyone just hides.

    I have been working at Techtronic Industries North America (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hours of Operation, Vacation time is ok

    Cons

    Its not what you know its who you know. If you are not friends with Management or a Supervisor or you are not in "the click" You have no opportunity to advance. No Morals, No Ethics. You are ask to lie, be deceptive, and the more you know the more that is expected without compensation. And forget Policy, might be one but its not followed. It depends on the mood they are in whether you are actually helped or not. Oh and increases I pay....REALLY?????

    Advice to Management

    How about follow your Policy, you teach it in training then its out the door once training is over. How about treat your employees equally. You should not have to kiss hind end to advance.

    Pros

    Good base pay, company truck and gas card, work with great brands, and learn the ins and outs of selling from the ground up.

    Cons

    Its allot of work in the Home Depot and you don't get promotions as quickly as lead on.

    Advice to Management

    If you get a great manager your life is allot easier if they know what they are doing. Not as organized as one would hope.
