Great products, easy to sell, poor management personnel (in some cases)--don't work for Vicky Kuxhausen
Pros: Work environment
Cons: Alot of hours, interview your manager---are they a micro-manager
You'll be leaving your house around 530 am, get to your 1st stop about 600 am, work the store---fill shelves and displays with backstock, Walmart's are your #1 priority, Publix #2. You review your orders with store management and place your order on your handheld--Publix's orders go through their computer system. ROTATE product, check out of codes, write up credits. Your co-workers are too busy to help you, unless you have an Austin Francais (like I did). Hardest part is IF you have a MICROmanager, like I unfortunately did, if you don't--smooth sailing, just make your numbers. Most enjoyable part, the friendships that you make with store personnel and your weekly checks are pretty nice.
I was hired to CLEAN UP a territory that had been greatly misserviced and I did exactly that, I attained and surpassed my monthly goals for the 4 months that I was there. Problem---my supervisor, a micro-manager who eventually had 3 RSR's fired due to her "inadequacies", and upper management Covered it up. It's politics as usual in the Orlando Center---I'm not sure how she Vicky K or her supervisor Gerri have kept their jobs, I only know that Karma is a -itch and they'll have their day.
Too bad for the company, that upper management doesn't see this or look into this.
