Great people to work with, micro-managed daily
Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 February 2015
Great team to work with, fellow peers were always helpful and willing to help whenever you had trouble.
Upper management was always looking for things to do, which led to everyone being micro managed.
Days were meant to be spent on the road helping customers, yet management would constantly hold meetings when they didn't need to take place.
Safety was the number one issue, and always stressed. It got overwhelming at times and made you scared to make a mistake.
We had very unreasonable targets to hit and budgets to make. If we were not near our target or budget, we would have to have a meeting about it.
The manager will constantly call you, asking where you are at and what your daily plan was, even though we had given our managers our weekly plans the week previous - again, micro management.
I was told to be more aggressive and tell "white lies" to customers in order to get a sale done, even if the customer didn't need the product.
Lots of long, daily meetings made it hard to do my actual job.
Lost of freedom, work on the road, friendly peers
Lots of long meetings, too much micro management
