As a route manager I enjoyed selling the product and building relationships with the customers, but that's about it. I worked 70+ hours a week with no benefits and no overtime pay. I was straight commission for the guy that owned the truck. Some weeks were great but some were terrible. If you are in an affluent area and are a good salesman there is potential to do very well.
No benefits no work/life balance
Company is not bad, it just the pay that is not that great plus lack of communication is pretty bad other than that is a good company as long as you do your job they would leave you alone.
Lots of hours
Health insurece is not good
Best part is meeting new people and solving problems. Good pay, if you perform. Lots of pressure to keep performing and to always do better. Excellent training, that is continuously expanded on.
Flexible hours, high pay if gou perform.
Can be a lot of stress bl
Pay and benefits are good. You don't get much room to grow job wise. A lot of the time your hard work goes unnoticed. Were always short staffed a lot. Point system is kind of ridiculous, if you need some time off for anything you either have to waste your vacation or take it as points against you.
Management is only in it for themselves. They don’t care about their teams and upper management in Kenosha and crystal lake truly only care about themselves. They have done nothing during the pandemic to help reps who are struggling as a direct result of new company policies. Of course management haven’t lost a dime during all this. Run away from industrial if you have any sales experience. If you don’t have sales experience it’s a good learning gig but leave as soon as your new hire compensation package ends. You will see at least a 50% drop in pay once they put you on the normal rep program where you average 3% commissions because of their contract pricing structure for big companies, state and local government naspo. Management has zero idea of how to motivate a sales force. More and more reps are getting second jobs or side gigs during the pandemic to makes ends meet.
Some what freedom of schedule but that is disappearing.
You will lose money, they do not pay mileage or gas, there is no base salary it’s your expense reimbursement account, commissions now average 3% less when you factor in paying your gas and depreciation in your vehicle.
Coworkers are very friendly. The entry level work is rather challenging however, compensation makes the work worth it and it is the necessary evil to be promoted. There seems to be a preference to promote from within. There is a reason why so many stay for years and years - Snap on truly takes care of its own with incredible benefits. There is a sales aspect of each call that I didn't care for, but it is what keeps the call center profitable. The most difficult part of the job is that you are always 'on' and productivity is a measured science. Plus there is an incessant abundance of information that must be acquired, managed and retained.

Jobs at Snap-on
Work-life balanceWork-life balance at Snap-on is very hard. Make no mistake long days into nights. Weekends most of the time also just to get all of the work done. It’s incredibly rewarding work when your attitude is right and your having fun and giving the Snap On Experience to customersPay & benefitsMy pay and benefits at Snap-on were very competitive. Great health coverage, travel expenses covered when in management.
Working at Snap-On usually starts off good for many. Not after too long you'll realize work ethic and knowledge mean very little to advancement opportunities. This leads to a VERY high turnover rate, especially the skilled workers. Most promotions handed out are head-scratchers, to people who have little-to-no experience in that department. In turn, MOST departments have little supervision. If you love to work and be watched by your co-workers whom are doing little-to-nothing, this job is for you. If you're someone who enjoys watching other people do the work, this job is for you. Take half hr. restroom breaks three times a day, walk around and gossip about other co-workers, head to the vending area and lunchroom whenever you want!! If you have a family, plan on working a few days a week just to pay for your health insurance just for a decent plan. The plant manager will go as far to reach out to employees about the issues surrounding the workplace, but rarely will they do anything about it. Most times, will punish everyone for the fault of a few. In the 9 years Snap-On was my employer, many of the perks rewarded to employees for hard work had been stripped. Company held meals were more than cut in half throughout the year, lunch time was cut in half, no holiday bonuses, quit giving tools as gifts, and last but not least, a fellow line-worker had been named Plant Manager.
Health Insurance, Management, No holiday bonus, Lack of discipline, unfair responsibilities, high turnover rate
Lots of great people work there. In Order Processing department they make you work constant mandatory overtime. I worked a year of 10 hr week days and many Saturdays.
Nice perks like Free lunches and generous gifts at Christmas.
Too much mandatory overtime.
the managers at SnapOn show little to no care for the employees who run the machines. they would rather cater to petty disruptions than be concerned for the ACTUAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING of hourly employees. Recently, an employee had to decide whether to keep his hard-earned, well-paying job over the safety of himself and his family. Over a month ago, a hardworking employee who had gotten hired on to the plant (after grueling for almost a year through a temp agency) and was just given his uniforms, had expressed MANY concerns over the lack of concern for COVID facial protection. Fellow employees and managers, who are all in poor health, were separated in the lunchroom but not at the timeclock, NOR were they refrained from screaming in eachothers' faces to communicate around loud machinery. concern was expressed to office managers and was immediately scoffed at and dismissed (shooed-away), even after the plant was forced to close for 3 shifts to "sanitize", then a news story ousted SNAP ON for testing "positive" for COVID. After being belittled about his concern for himself and fellow "susceptible" coworkers, the employee had to make a stand and leave a much needed job in a much needed time. WHAT A PATHETIC COMPANY!! WHAT LAZY, PATHETIC, SELF-ENTITLED MANAGERS run this trashhole!!! Letters of concern for safety and notice of harassment were sent to many offices and news stations... --snapon refuses to give this employee compensation for his forced time off and THEY WILL BE SUED!!! THIS STORY WILL REACH THE SPOTLIGHT, "managers" of snapon....
Great company to work for, but a lot of sales positions require overnight travel. Good benefits provided by employer (health/vision/dental insurance, 401k, pension)
room to move up the corporate latter
overnight travel needed for many sales positions.
