Outside sales - completely misrepresented! Horrible place to work!
Outside Sales (Former Employee) – Columbus OH – March 9, 2015
I was an outside sales person. With a goal to increase customers, and close at the end of each sale. Supplemental mileage was offered as well as bonuses for hitting certain new customer opening goals. This is a total sham. I was encouraged to sell to my personal friends and return the product after getting commissions. Very dishonest. The pay profile didn't pay you out unless you achieved certain sales goals, which was not clearly explained. Promised territory never came to fruition. I was the third new rep the customers I called on had seen in three months. Also there is no protected territory. Again, told I would have a limited amount of people selling in my market. When in fact there was more than one manager in that market and had additional people on their team. 6 people from 8 of my training class were gone in 6 months time. This is across the US. I tried to quit in month 4, my manager pleaded with me to give it another try. I quit shortly after. I am a very honest, hard working, tenured sales person. I can not work for some where so off of my moral compass. Beware, if you are being recruited!!!
Dishonest, not professional, please see above statement.
