I was with Sunbelt for 6 years as an outside sales rep. In my first month I can remember thinking, "how does this company make money?"
Each store is "managed" by an individual that then hires all positions within the store. Sunbelt has 500 + stores nationwide. Each store is then as good as the person assigned as manager, and boy, they hire some doozies. Nepotism and the good ole boy network abound here.
Upper management is completely controlled through the same good ole boy network where you are either "in" or "out."
There is no true path to promotion or advancement because the folks above you aren't going anywhere and they will ignore any suggestions or attempts at improving their unorganized system.
There is no direction or accountability for the sales force and many reps just sleep walk through their employment.
Senior sales reps have seen a decline in compensation over the last 4 years through territory cuts and commission percentage changes.
The company is focused on profits and buying smaller equipment companies to add to an already dysfunctional organization.
I don't recommend employment here if you are looking for a career.
