Hostile/Stressful work environment at local branch
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – May 3, 2018
Very stressful work environment in local branch. Keep in mind this is from an inside sales persons perspective- but the pressure on outside sales is even worse. Overworked co-workers have no patience when it comes to training new employee's. So its pretty much sink or swim. Manager is friendly and helpful but is not empowered to add the additional help needed due to the tight corporate controls, he recognizes the stress but can do little about it. This position is advertised to have a monthly bonus program but be warned it was not clearly spelled out for me and was changed to suit the companies needs and they failed to pay me for the 1st full month bonus even though I met every objective and was indicated a monthly payment on my offer letter. It is one of the smallest bonus programs I have ever seen for an inside sales person who is responsible for so much business- though they were supposedly improving it. Pay here is mediocre, health benefits are very expensive and coverage is horrible for a company with more than 8K employees worldwide. Prescription benefit company is horrible. 1st years vacation is less than 1 week. You do have a 401K and a modest pension plan. If you are just starting in sales this might be a good fit.
Free lunches from vendors at times.
Stressful work environment, mediocre pay, poor unclearly defined bonus program
