Always rewarded for a good months in sales, dinners or golf.
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAOctober 14, 2014
Pros: they urged you to use yor expense account, out state trips for success.
Cons: i thought my pay could have been a little higher but still wasn't to bad.
What I enjoyed most about this company, is that they made everything a competition for the sales force which I loved. They supplied us with reports on up coming jobs in your territory, the next thing to do would be to call the up coming contractors, then try to learn the name of the person on that job, you then hopefully speak with he or she.The sales staff worked well together and would give leads to each for their own territories.The hardest part at first was hearing the word NO, But I shortly learned how turn that into motivation. The most enjoyable for me was my fellow workers some of who I am still friends with.

Typical Corporate Pyramid
YARD/ WASHRACK MANAGER (Former Employee), Friendswood, TXJuly 28, 2014
Pros: many types of equipment to learn about.
Cons: mud, grease, lack of respect.
A typical day started with coffee and chit chat around the water cooler, CDL drivers acting as if they themselfs walk on water.

I learned quite a bit about many different types of equipment and how they operate.

Management was incompetent to say the least. Personally I respected a few of my colleagues, however, most were much like washed up reality TV stars.

The hardest part was the weather and trying to figure out who was really in charge, the CDL drivers or management.

The most enjoyable was all the equipment I was able to drive.

Pefect for people who love to work long hours and like to use their hands
One Ton Driver (Current Employee), Fremont, CAMarch 20, 2014
A typical work day with Sunstate starts off with a early morning start along with loading and unloading various equipment. Long hours is the usual. I've learned how to be a responsible and honest worker and many other life and job skills. The most challenging part of the job is working in high temperatures with long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is you get paid weekly.

There is a tremendous lack of continuity throughout the company regarding policies and procedures
Inside Sales Rep (Former Employee), Fremont, CAJanuary 6, 2014
The work days are very long, but the work content is challenging and therefor rewarding.

There is a lack of training at management level.

The hardest part of the job is relentless multi-tasking.

The best part is being able to develop solutions to problems that benefit the customer and the company.

My co-workers are diverse, helpful and pleasant to be around.

If you love being micro-managed this is the company for you!
Head Key Puncher at Stand Alone Branch (Former Employee), Central TexasMay 31, 2012
Pros: not much except you get a truck as the head key puncher. president of the company is a super person.
Cons: benefits r weak, mid mgmt is weak, sales no charges p&d, when customer damages something they usually do not pay for it.
Lots of key punching data everyday. Operations is not really an operational job, its run by sales. Co-workers at the branch are fantastic, except you have to watch your back from the sales side if you are not part of that group. You will get thrown under the bus in a nano second. Hardest part of the job is being a robot everyday - most enjoyable is working with some good hardworking people at your branch.

Great owner, sales trainer, trust issues with management
Sales (Former Employee), LA/orange CountyMarch 13, 2012
Pros: free truck
Cons: can't park huge truck, odd, and unprossional regional manager, jp.
Owner is great, sales trainer is great.
This is a salary plus commision sales job. The good news is that you get a base salary instead of 100% commision. The bad news is this creates a management style that always wonders if you are selling. The regional Sales manager for LA is very unprofessional and is passive aggresive as mentioned. He seldom did any ride alongs or seemed to understand what was really going on out in the feild with the individual reps. He micro managed by talking on the phone and "questioning" the sales reps for hours on end. A lot of great workers in customer service lost there jobs the past few years, but he get's to keep his job. Managing by fear is not a great way to manage people.
If your interviewing with this company ask about the management style and management trust in employees working on their own without harrassment. There are better construction equipment companies out there. Good Luck.

Good Company, unprofessional and uneducated managers.
Sales Rep (Former Employee), Anaheim, CAApril 25, 2011
Pros: free truck for reps
Cons: regional sales managers an idiot
I was a Sales Rep for 5 years for the Los Angeles region. The company and the people overall are great. However, the Regional Sales Manager and other mangers are and controlling. The LA area Sales Manager John P. was easily the most unprofessional person not to mention manager I had ever dealt with. His management style is that of a insecure control freak who loves to scare people with his confusing and unprofessional management style. I think he has ADD. After laying off many great workers, he is still there, making life tough for all those that come into his path. By the way he has teeth like Austin Powers. Would have been a great job if it wasn't for unprofessional managers like him to make life miserable. Good luck.
