Long days 10 hours / micromanaging / backaches
Outside Sales & Purchasing (Former Employee) – Louisiana – March 17, 2019
Too much on salespeople
You have to do collections, expedite orders, stock and repair vending machines. stocking, receiving, quoting, searching for random parts, answer store phones and help everyone including other employees customers. Delivery and stocking customers orders, reporting, store reports, personal sales reports, end of day reports, tool repair quotes, clean, label, organize, be able to lift very heavy boxes all day, work in excessive heat and cold. Cycle count every item in the store.
10 hour days = 10 hours overtime, you get commission which barely makes up for the extra 40 hours of labor a month.
Customers are normally very nice
Prices too high, over saturated market, too much demand on salespeople
