Field Rep (Current Employee) – Florida – June 2, 2018
Most of the 5 Star rating will come from Florida where the company is based so go figure. I would know I live there. Company needs work and structure and more professionalism. It does not value its field workers much while those in the office will make the most on the returns in bonuses. God for bid you drive your car all over. It breaks down your so out of luck. They will stress to drive your car though they have the funds but the more spent the less bonuses they get in return. Now the middle half understands the field reps and if it was not for them as in the coordinaters and a few DMs this what makes the company worth while. You have a few kind and caring that will fight for you. They really seem to care of course but of course there are also a few DM racking in bonuses also. But this seems like a company where a couple of guys got together and just started to wing it. It has great vision mainly by the a few middle employees but as far as the president and maybe owners you can forget it. Per diem is 20$ can we say dollar menu? You will find some hard working a dedicated leads and workers sadly to say there mainly depended on because they get the job done and keep bonuses flowing for those above. Must be nice to have many vacations during a years time.Take care of your dedicated and your leads or you will always have a "Hey we are hiring listing" Key personnel should get more. Why not the office does, while your in the A/C.
Get to see the world and a few coordinators and DMs who care
RETAIL MERCHANDISER (Former Employee) – Throughout the United States. – July 17, 2018
I had great supervisors and co workers. We all worked very well together as a team. I enjoyed my time with the company but I moved on for a higher rate of pay elsewhere. It's been a few years since I worked for Apollo so all of the information I've provided is what I can remember.
I've been with the company for over a year. There have been so many changes for the better and I feel that my work doesn't go unnoticed. There's a great culture here: potlucks, bbs, yoga, corn hole games, ice cream socials, etc. Overall really happy with the company and the people here.
20 plus years while company was bought and sold. salary went down. Management terrible ! treated like you owe company something never in trouble always completed work given always on time. Treated like I was worlds worst person.
Storage Building installer/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – June 1, 2018
There was a lot of traveling love the job.This job was like a money train when I worked there until management realized how much I was getting paid on average $326 a hr. to assemble storage sheds two months later I was fired.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Oroville, CA – April 9, 2018
I liked this job because I could dress however I wanted and worked on my own schedule. I had plenty of experience going in so the job was easy to do. The only things I didn't like where that the hours were so scarce and I had to do a lot of out of town driving, which the paycheck didn't really make up for.
Worked for this company more than 10 years, has been 3 different companies since than. Over 10 different managers and schedulers. From the beginning it was remarkably busy and exciting. Over the years the work has slowed down, management is less responsive, stores have retired there contracts, which has lead to less or no work at all. Love this job, but need more work and hrs.
Rental car/hotels paid, mileage and time pay, flexible hours.
Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – March 21, 2018
Apollo is a great company to work for. The culture is very enjoyable and it is easy to come to work everyday. The company has a social committee that will plan special events such as birthday breakfasts, holiday events and food trucks. I have learned so much at this company from my fellow co-workers. It is a team effort from start to end through all of the departments.
Apollo is a great place to work. From the time I've started, it's grown and grown and grown. We would only have social events that were few and far between. Now in addition to the holiday events, Apollo has created a social committee so they do movie screenings, bring in food trucks, we just got a keurig for the office (we have to bring in our own coffee pods, but it's still a nice gesture). The work environment is laid back. If you stay away from the office drama queens you'll have a great time working here. I also heard they are starting Wellness Wednesdays so I'm looking forward to seeing what they will roll out for that. I can't speak for the field employees, but I do know that Apollo is trying to include everyone more through a digital culture they've created on social media with contests and also recognizing the field techs who really stand out with a bimonthly newsletter. They are really trying and doing their best to make better changes.
Merchandiser, Electrical Support (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA – March 14, 2018
The schedule was very hectic, always traveling on the road to different states. Making sure that products were in the right area and make sure store managers understand how the merchandise should be displayed.
Loved the job, but unfortunately I was hired during a buy out and management was being moved and relocated and all this was going on during the Christmas holidays. I was working out in the field and needed management to make a decision and no one was there and I had to leave the job unfinished. I felt forgotten and abandoned by the big wigs. I didn't like that, so I abandoned them.
Team Lead (Current Employee) – South – March 5, 2018
An ok place to get started but after that no so good. This is a fast paced job which leads to poor workmanship and call backs. The FOM and team members are good. Way to many questions on survey when the job is completed, some are asked 3 times in different ways.
Team work and manger
Poor pay, poor training on new projects, the videos only help a little. Poor hotel choices when you travel, very low perdiem for food
Merchandising Field Rep (Current Employee) – USA – February 2, 2018
The company is currently merging with several other companies that they had bought out. So there is much confusion and the Field Reps don't get any information. My first manager here was very impressive, he communicated well and seemed to really care for his employees. The second manager I had did a horrible job. There was no communication and we ran out of work and she wouldn't just tell me. She kept stringing me along. Now I have another new manger, so we shall see. But over all I love this job and the company is about par for corporate America
Self guided, no boss breathing down your neck, pay is good, travel was fun
they hire part time but work you full time. (Thanks Obamacare)
Full reset job: Knew what was expected of me, per daily review with supervisor and local store management. Gained new experience in fixture assembly. Management was supportive, and concise. Good vibe, liked knowing what was expected of me. Difficult to locate and obtain needed fixture items, at store level. Enjoyed working within a team, and placed on individual tasks.
