Bad management
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OH15 May 2019
Dishonest from the start regarding size of territory, compensation and benefits. Made several attempts with management to get things resolved but they could care less. Unrealistic expectations as far as number of “quality” sales calls per week. Inside sales staff was the only redeeming factor, very helpful.
Pros
Supportive inside sales team
Cons
Bad management, dishonest, internal competitive culture

Good products but bad management
Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  North Jackson, Ohio6 March 2017
Management is always demanding more and does not provide needed support for inside sales. They like to micromanage everything you do, with everything revolving around the outside sales. Human resources will give you a hard time when you have a problem, that is if they even respond back to you. Also the health insurance benefits are expensive and the coverage is horrible.
Pros
Good products
Cons
Long hours, lack of support.

Inside Sales/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Marrero, LA15 February 2017
Outside sales gets all of the perks. Inside sales gets treated like just another number. The management is sub par. They have no clear vision. Sales plans change from week to week.

Great leadership and training.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX20 June 2016
It was a pleasure working with the folks from SunSource. The training the company provides is top-notch. SunSource is constantly helping their employees improve themselves. The company is pretty terrific company-wide. I had the opportunity to work briefly in various branches and each time it was a great experience. It's all up to you. Go in with drive and determination....use your sales skills and do not take NO for an answer. For you new grads....it's an excellent place to start and grow your knowledge.
