Company that could care less about it's employees
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – California – March 21, 2016
No car allowance, no gas reimbursement unless you have to travel out of town overnight and then it's a pittance of a per-diem considering it has to cover meals, fuel, and hotel stay. This is illegal in the state of California. Myers has their employees believing that they should write their mileage off on their taxes. Complete violation of CA State law.
You abuse your vehicle to the tune of 50k miles a year for the company and most of the time you are footing the bill for it.
Too many hands in the pot to be competitive and earn decent commission. The home office sells all of the products to it's branch locations at a profit and then you have to try and sell it and still make money. These days with the internet, customers are pretty savvy. It's very competitive and in order to get the sale sometimes it is necessary to sell items with a razor thin margin because MTS is making profit on you and then on your customer and they don't care that you make no money as long as they do. Their solution? You have to sell yourself, sell the company, sell the warranty, sell the service and price will not be an issue.
Management is aloof and distant. Recent changes in pay make the job not worth it, considering you foot the bill on all you vehicle expenses. An average employee making 30K base will be lucky to see 20K at years end after expenses. Very hard to make a commission goal selling items at a markup that start out higher than your competitors retail costs.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!!
Customers are great, Co workers are great.
NO reimbursement for vehicle usage.
