    Wasn't many pros to the job. Tons of overtime and great co workers.

    Management never had employee best interest in mind. Quarterly bonuses were never met.

    Listen to the employees who do the job on a day to day basis.

    Pros

    Extremely flexible schedule and an incredible training program called Real Whirled that makes you desirable to other companies as well.

    Cons

    Occasionally field representatives feel that their opinions are not heard by corporate but that seems to be common in any large organization. Communication barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer communication and fewer surprises for your field reps. It is difficult to stay enthusiastic about a position when it is constantly changing.
