    I worked at Walsworth full-time

    Pros

    Family-owned for almost 80 years. Produces a high quality product and customer satisfaction is a priority. Reps work out of a home office.

    Cons

    Certain times of the year can be very stressful and time consuming. Smaller company so changes sometimes take longer to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to find more ways to support sales reps so that they could spend more time selling the product instead of servicing customers

    I have been working at Walsworth full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a yearbook sales rep, you do not go to an office every single day like a typical 9-5 which can seem a bit intimidating to some. However, the company provides an amazing training program that builds up your confidence and gets you ready for what is expected of you in the field. Training is a lot of work and takes a lot of effort, but was well worth it in the end. In my experience, I learned so much about the company and its values as well as trained one on one with various training managers. Walsworth is truly an amazing company who believes in their employers.

    Cons

    I would not suggest this position to someone who is not self-motivated and/or lacks resiliency. You have to work hard to be successful, which is not necessarily a negative thing but it may be to some. Interview process seems long, but is well worth it.

    I have been working at Walsworth full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Only family owned company (three generations) in the yearbook industry meaning they really care about their product, company and employees because their name is on it!

    Cons

    Smallest of the yearbook companies, so things are slower to move and adapt to a rapidly changing market.

    Advice to Management

    I think they have a great management system in place and I've found that they are extremely supportive and effective.

    Pros

    Employee and customer focused company that really cares about people as much as the bottom line. Work hard play hard atmosphere. Amazing earning potential for those willing to follow the process and put in the effort. Great management team. The company and it's offerings continue to improve. Stable, family-owned company that's never been bought or sold and doesn't have a lot of bureaucracy.

    Cons

    The lack of bureaucracy also means relatively limited advancement opportunities. There's a lot of room to learn, grow and increase earnings but not a lot of extra positions to move up into.

    Advice to Management

    Continue increasing resources and support for sales reps. Keep increasing R&D efforts to continue innovation in customer resources and other offerings.
