Sum it up. Work hard play hard

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Snap-On pays well for the position. It is not for the faint of heart. Hours can be long, territories can be stressful. Management is supportive in a competitive sales environment. However, opportunities to enjoy the fruits of you labour are plentiful. Expense-paid trips to Trade Shows, where Snap-On knows how to put on a party, make the long days worthwhile.

Pros

People, management and customers.

Cons

Basically outdoor work in a truck.

Had fun every minute

I would recommend working at Snap-on to everybody. It's like the McDonald's to to the trades industry. The staff and bosses of this job were excellent and gave me the room to fly like a peacock.

Pros

Understanding for the human condition

Cons

None

Wish id never left

A lot of sh**. A lot of work but finically worth it. As a franchisee never forget that YOU as the customer they are only interested in selling you product. Thats not a bad thing but, youre not always on the same side. Might be different as an actual snap in employee but I doubt it.

Pros

Total freedom

Cons

Lots of work, not a holiday.

Great company

Great team mates on the job. The franchisee system is one of the best, and current franchisees are hard working and dedicated to their business. Some very cool products.

Great company to work for

If you're looking to get into a franchise, what a great company to do it with. Nothing but positive things so say. They have the model, the support and the tools.

Great place to work

Snap-on tools is a fantastic company to work for. they supply a lot of training and leadership and management is easy to talk to about day to day issues as well as advancement. Would strongly recommend Snap-on to anyone looking for work.

Snap-on Equipment

This is not the first job I am leaving, however it is the first time I am leaving to get out of an organization. This was my second time back to Snap-on. It was a completely different division with all new management. The company, or more accurately this division in the company in my opinion behaves with very poor ethics. They show no, or virtually no concern for their employees and often put them in a money losing position. The competition is eating their lunch and they are quickly becoming the joke in this field. With such a lack of support and service I decided to look elsewhere.

Pros

The position does offer great freedom

Cons

Poor service, terrible support from management

We played dominoes, cards and checkers.

A typical day at work is all business and professional. I had an opportunity to work alone. The staff, management and employees had a very good working relationship. I enjoyed making sure that the health and safety of the company were keep to the standard required.

Automated tool Control Level 5- Fort McMurray

Trying to do my technical job with servers/computers/electronics along with the snap on Sales people in Fort McMurray was horrible. which They dont not understanding of the product when it comes to technology made the job super hard, demanding, harassing a disrespectful working with the snap on sales without any lack of understanding of what the job takes or the servicing industry. You will be yell at by 2 people close to retirement which only knows tools and specially Suncor which expects that you will also manage their tools because Snap on sales promise the whole world so you have to manage tools and a lots physical work taking tools in and out and for an IT guy with a good background, you will probably wont like the job. Money is good but there is not respect and they do not understand the job, you may have really stressful days trying to explain your schedule and reasons why you need to replace a hard drive and stuff like that. They work super slow and basically you fix all the wrong from sales and get 1005 involved with their mistakes, putting you at the front line of the company and then they look for reasons to fire you or blame someone, so again you are the front line of the company and Sales does not know how to explain or sell the product and then they get you in trouble.

Pros

good money, freedon

Cons

technical and sales dont get along

The culture

If your not part of the “click” advancement is hard if not impossible. People with half the knowledge and talent are advance over more qualified people, just because of “sucking up” or who they know

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Old boys culture

Fast paced, positive workplace

A typical day at work involved me dealing with multiple businesses and placing orders for tools that they would like to order, writing an invoice and then billing it to the customer. When the tools arrive, sort the orders to each business and create an order delivery sheet and have the delivery driver bring each order to the appropriate customer. I learned a lot about providing the perfect customer service experience. I gained a broadened knowledge of different tools and parts. I learned effective time management skills, working under pressure, multi-tasking and meeting deadlines. Management was great, I had full support all throughout my role at snap-on. Workplace culture was good. Positive, faced paced environment, The hardest part of the job sometimes was dealing with an influx of orders and making sure they all got submitted and delivered on time to customers. The most enjoyable part of the job was always having something to do, learning many different software programs, helping customers, promoting the business in a positive manner.

Pros

Discounts, bonus, salary

Cons

Extensive hours
