      Pros

      We use to have a large amount of freedom. As a PC you covered your office and the local territory. You assisted your reps and GM to fill orders, interview potentials and deal with issues as they came up. You had a local office support staff of recruiters and an admin to keep you focused on hiring the right person for the job. This all changed in 2020-2021

      Cons

      Where do I start...Sales reps are treated like gold and can do no wrong. Meanwhile you are stuck in an office dealing with the fallout from golden boy reps who half way do their jobs. Reps do not walk FE out anymore, they only text them and do not call. All problems are not dumped on the PC to deal with. TI let go of all the in house admins a couple years ago leaving the PC's to deal with issues. Most of my time was spent dealing with payroll issues, paycard issues and being hammered by reps about manpower. Tradesmen took away valuable recruiting tools and centralized recruiting. Instead of having a full time recruiter in the office they cut the recruiters and made it so only one recruiter was available to help over 5 plus offices. Reps are seen as the main driver for sales when in actuality its a TEAM effort. How are the reps supposed to sell if the PC and recruiter suck? PC were never given any praise just spoken down to to find more people. Sales Reps moonlighted with other sales jobs that intertwined with construction so they could make more money when riding around. Examples would be selling construction cleaning or other services to contractors. Local management was well aware of this and even sat in on meeting where sales reps would push their alternate products. Sales reps never spent time selling good people that were found only pushing you to find the people that contractors ordered. Alcohol was prevalent among management and some sales reps would come in visibly intoxicated after playing golf for the day or having a lunch with a client. Meanwhile the PC's are sitting in the office busting butt to find folks that want to work. When I was a sales rep before I became PC clients were given to Reps who managed other territories because of "personal relationships" with clients. BEWARE your territory is NOT protected. GM's will give orders in your territory to other more senior sales reps. Complaints to HR go unanswered or when they do investigate nothing really happens. I mean why would you fire a top preforming sales reps just for drinking in the office and driving drunk, I mean come on he makes the company money. Hell they took out the postage machines so I had to PAY out of my own pocket to send out paycards to FE. Cheap. When covid hit instead of getting us proper masks they sent these stamped out black masks you could visible see though. Shows how much TI cares. Run the heck away if a recruiter calls you. I was constantly dealing with pay issues for FE even though we has a "support admin". Hell they couldn't help they were to busy assisting 10 other offices with issues where as before you had an in house admin to assist.
