Territory Manager, Mid Atlantic - September 3, 2012
I was completely mislead during the interview process as to the management style of this company. Kasmir was very upfront about their tracking device with me, however when I questioned them about the way I would work the territory, what I was told and what actually is practiced were two completely different things. I was harassed for months by my manager about the way I was working for Kasmir. I was calling on an average of 4 customers a day 4 days a week and opening an average of 1 new account a week and this was not good enough. On the office day which they also track I was making 50-75 calls and email contacts and told by my manager that I was not doing well enough that I had to contact the same 50 accounts over and over. This was very harassing to those 50 customers as many told me and not at all fruitful by ignoring the other 300 + customers.
I was told we were provided with a company car as part of the compensation package. After excepting the job and in training in Dallas I find out that they deduct 120.00 a month from my check for this car. I also was involved in a fender bender which I was not cited however I was told that I would have to pay the $1000.00 deductible. Between earning 39,000.00 a year and getting constantly nickel and dimed by my employers and harrassed by my manager,who could never decide if I was salesman of the year or the dregs of society I luckily found a part time job that pays 1 1/2 times than the full time one at Kasmir.
I highly recommend a position at Kasmir Fabrics to anyone in desperate need of income as long as that indivdual continues the job search.
