Territory Sales Manager (Former Employee) – La Mirada, CA – November 23, 2015
The company structure was mediocre at best. The territory management was not very supportive to analyze and resolve issues at hand. Most of the solutions were the salespersons analytical ability and keep the customer buying. Not very much support from the back end.
I enjoyed how much I learned about all the differents aspects of this business.
Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – November 21, 2015
A typical day was 9-12 hours of work. depending on the department I was a part of at the time, I would do a number of different tasks. From the beginning position to the position I was in when I left, I worked almost every part of the Operations side of the business. I moved to Sales once mastering all that I could in Operations. This is when it became obvious to me that Sales was a good fit for me and I found great success in it as well. Among other, smaller awards, I won the Business Excellence Award the final two years I was in Sales. I learned almost all there is to know about the Operations side of a distribution company. I also learned a lot in Sales. From the incoming of product to the delivery of product to the customers door, there is not a lot about that business I did not understand. In Sales, I learned so much about customer interaction, scheduling, the dynamics of a sales call and product knowledge required to be successful. I was also a part of a Safety Committee who spent a portion of their time focused on making a safe work environment for all. We met once a month where we evaluated accidents and future safety hazards. We also developed programs and events to promote safety. My crew that I worked with went two years without an accident. My co-workers were a very hard working bunch of people which inspired a culture that was hard working and honest about goals. To this day, I still miss a great portion of the people I worked with there. The hardest part of this job was when the economy changed in '08 and the company began the lay-off process. This companymore... began with benefit cuts and then moved to retiring their longest tenured employees. I ended up being one of them. The most enjoyable part of the job was the company I worked for had always taken good care of me and my family and made it much easier to push myself to the next level to be the best I could be.less
Great company that I enjoyed almost everything about.
This company fell viction to the depression that took place in '08.
Delivery Driver/Trainer (Former Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – November 20, 2015
Upon arriving to work at your scheduled dispatch time be prepared to wait upwards of 3 hours for your day to begin. If you aren't one of managements favorite 5-10 drivers then you better do everything by the book because you will not be treated the same and they will write you up for violation of company policy.

A very team oriented environment with experienced and driven staff. The work can get physically draining sometimes but a good and fair crew makes things easier. Top notch forklifts, computers and other tools.
