Account Representative (Former Employee), Troy, MI – October 6, 2012
Pros: fun industry and interesting people
Cons: some owners that you work with are not business minded.
A typical day would be calling on your accounts for the day and presenting new products, along with educatiing about new and current porducts. Team meetings with management would occur about once a week or when needed. The best part of the job is building relationships with your accounts. The hardest part would be making sure that the orders are correct – more... and get where they need to be. – less

Forklift Operator/Reciever (Former Employee), Spartanburg, SC – May 9, 2012
Pros: earn money
Cons: job security depends on too much things
While working here I had some good tims and bad times. The position I worked was not bad, just the people I had to deal with. Some of the management were easy to work with and some are not. I have seen favortizism and other wrong doings in this plant but what can I do about it. I see them protect the ones they want to protect and get rid of others they – more... want to get rid of. You can loose your job for too many different reasons – less

Pros: working with a large company
Cons: direct manager not be supportive
The division I worked in was the last to be acquired in their quest to become a nation wide distributor.

My direct manager lacked the experience and knowledge for his role and made it difficult to be effective to company guidelines.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Richmond, IN – April 16, 2012
Pros: great benefits/ environment
Cons: higher up management
Was a fun company to work for. Great benefits and my direct managers were always supportive and eager to hear my ideas. I did not agree with the negative attitude from my Territory Manager. Instead of backing my staff and I with getting more mirrors for security, he was extremely negative and almost passive when it came to theft. Very disappointing. – more... In fact, he never worked at the store level and he rarely saw eye to eye with me as a manager and my District Manager when it came to in-store operations. – less
