inside sales (Former Employee), Solon, OhioOctober 10, 2013
Pros: 1 hour lunch, if time allowed.
Cons: expected to work long hours to get your job done, with a low salary.
A typical day was very stressful as you were expected to multi task to a unbelievable level...no training programs involved, you were left to fail on own and quickly get burned out.

Pros: donuts on fridays
Cons: not a very competitive pay when you obtained your class b cdl
Pulling orders that varied everyday and formed to the customers needs, I learned to be patient in listening to the customer in making sure I placed their order correctly into the computer. Management always made sure that we worked as a communicating team and that we knew where to find all merchandise in the warehouse. Hardest part was when we had gotten – more... backed up on orders and we had to scramble together to pull the customers orders. A more enjoyable part of the job was when we caught a break in between the orders. – less

Great company, but not a great regional supervisor.
Territory Manager (Former Employee), West Jordan, UTMarch 27, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: environment created by supervisor
Alside would be a great company to work for, but the supervisor for the Utah region is very strict, unprofessional, intimidating, demanding, and sometimes unrealistic. Work week is Monday - Friday. Expectation is to be out selling from 7:30am - 5:00pm, and e-mails are to be done outside of working hours. (only true under this Regional Vice President) – more... The other outside sales people are great and helpful. – less
