    Although local management was caring and supportive, upper management was seemingly stuck in time with antiquated systems and technology as well as old school ideas when it came to there approach to sales.

    I worked at Tradesmen International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

Especially to those reps who inherit bad clients and are told to "deal with it". Everything on a daily basis was unclear - and office employees were purely numbers to them. The turnover was astouding.
