Sales oriented company with high focus on profit and little concern for employees or customers
Pros: the bonus programs for management are decent when sales goals are met.
Cons: little to no help from upper management when needed, hour cuts are constant, little chance of advancement.
Typical day at work for a commercial manager is making sales calls to commercial accounts and managing drivers delivery routes. If and when problems arise, there is little to no help from upper management. When new employees are hired there is no training and they are thrown into difficult situations with no experience on how to handle them. It is common for stores to be understaffed for the company to make extra profit and managers have no way to get around understaffing because of computer controlled scheduling and negative repercussions from corporate management. Bad employees that do not follow their orders, cause issues with customers and employees, or simply do not do their jobs do not get terminated or reprimanded, but simply moved from store to store with no consequence. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interactions with the customers and helping them solve their problems. There is also very little room for advancement in the company. They prefer to hire outside help with no experience for management jobs.
