Route Sales Manager in Fairfax County, VA
on November 24, 2018
I traveled to a variety of locations daily to offer services and products, maintaining client relations while establishing new ones. Management is always accessible by making a phone call, and there is always help to reach out to if you're having issues. The schedule is as flexible as you make it. If you do your job well, you open more free time for yourself. However, if you cannot maintain the equipment you have for your customers, you will make your day harder and longer, leaving you less time for family and ultimately less commissions as you won't be selling so much as repairing. In a nutshell: Fair pay for fair work. The vehicles, however, were terrible. My company vehicle was always breaking down, and got me into multiple accidents. Avoid those transit connects at all costs. Overall, the company was great. It wasn't a good fit for me personally, but if you like earning commissions and having a sales driven environment while staying very active and mobile, it can be a very worthwhile career.

Routes consisted of planning the site visits and handling emergency repairs. Company paid phone and vehicle. Job could at times be physical and stressful but all in all a good job.Management was fair and respectful. It is a sales so you have to hustle to meet goals.
Territory Manager in Washington State
on August 13, 2022
They only care about stockholders. They took away base pay and commission and made reps hourly plus “incentives”. The incentives and hourly equaled a pay cut but they still expected everyone to work extra hard to get sales. The PNW area manager could care less when we all complained about the pay change. Most district managers are young impressionable people that they can mold or will say how hi when asked to jump. The company is a joke and now they only care about are other company acquisitions.

This Company values its employees, work hard and consciously and you get the rewards.They support you when you most need it 💯 You work closely with your team and therefore build close working relationships, helping you define your skills for promotion if it becomes available.
Senior TR Field Liaison South East in Greensboro, NC
on August 9, 2022
Management has changed several times over and now the role is more to appease the stock holders than to take care of the employees. High demands that lead into the weekends causing lack of work/life balance.
