Decent company, very low pay
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee), Jessup, MDDecember 5, 2013
Pros: ability to leave the office once or twice a week to make in-store visits.
Cons: low salary, small bonus ability
Grimco provides a pretty ho-hum experience. It's your standard sales job. Sit at a desk most days making outbound cold calls, occasionally take in an incoming call or walk in customer. A few times a month, hit the road to visit customer's in their locations.

If you feel comfortable going through the motions in the sales world, there isn't really much – more... I could say bad though, everything was very average, neither great nor bad, except the pay was somewhat low. – less

Great people working along side you. Always busy and great atmosphere
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Lombard, ILOctober 6, 2012
Pros: a lot of free lunches
Cons: pay
As a sales rep a typical day involves calling multiple accounts to see if they know about certain specials going on. Closings are a huge deal with this company so i try to get our customers to buy the materials from us that they may currently purchase elswhere. My daily goal is to make Grimco a "one stop shop" for anyone who needs us for their sign – more... making needs.
My management is very goal oriented and a huge push on our sales team and warehouse crew. They expect nothing but the best. The most difficult part of this job is handling the customer load and deadlines. This is due to being short handed and working in a very small shop. Before Grimco I never had a job as a phone salesman. I learned how to talk to customers in a more personal manner and i feel it really helped me build a strong relationship with my clients. – less

Young work environment with great opportunity to learn how to run a business
Customer Development Representative (Current Employee), Hollywood, FLMay 3, 2012
Pros: fun environment, great opportunity to learn, performance is rewarded
Cons: set number of pto days account for vacation, sick days, and any sort of leave, modest salaries
Working at Grimco as my first job has been a great, unique experience. It is a fun, hardworking environment with high spirits and a shared desire to learn, grow, and advance. I have learned invaluable things during my time at Grimco. Among those things are how to effectively chose the most cost-effective method to ship a product, how to think critically – more... in order to work around situations that might seem hard to figure out, how to run COD reports and make sure money that has not been collected gets collect, and how to build strong professional relationships with co-workers, customers, and vendors in order to build an environment where business can grow.

The hardest part of the job is really learning about, and understanding, the needs and requirements of each individual customer in order to make efficient and mutually beneficial transactions.

By far, the most enjoyable part of my job is setting a branch wide goal that can be attained by only one individual. For example, who can make the most outbound calls and reach the most customers and/or make the most sales in a given day, week, or month and having to give it your all in order to come out on top. – less
