Received little to no recognition for developing scripts to help the entire company. I went out of my way and developed many different ways to help the pipeline. A woman that was promoted snapped saying they are already working on that when I showed all the managers. Your ideas will be taken from upper management and they will not give you credit for the work you do. Extremely awful work environment. High turnover rate: 6 people left from my team within the year I was there. Please stay away from this company unless you don't like much human interaction and just want to collect a low wage paycheck.

Terrible. Would often start at 11:00 PM to midnight and get done at 1 or 2 PM. Latest I've stayed was 5 PM, however you're always on call and the constant emails make it hard to sleep even when you do get home.

Other managers would show up late and push their work on your shoulders. However you're held accountable for their actions just as much as they are. "That's why you get paid the big bucks," is what a member of management told me. Yet they do NOT pay you enough to work the hours or the depreciation on your personal vehicle.

Miscommunication would make me leave no appreciation, not the right amount of materials for paper delivery. Management is a joke they don't resolve any issues and feel the customers are always right. It's so many reasons to leave the place best option is to bypass trying to work here.

$32,900 for a district manager. For the amount of time spent driving your vehicle and the depreciation that follows it wasn't enough.

Not to mention they require you to put up gas money for the first month and they don't pay out their last gas reimbursement.

For a company that makes $2M per district, they can afford to pay their distribution managers a lot more considering I had to travel almost an hour from home and spend 8 hours driving every night.
