very stressful company to work for. Always talking about quota.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Ramsey, NJMay 5, 2018
As you can see from the job requirement is all you need is a valid driver license. For the most part they are looking for a person with low income expectations. The first year you will get a guarantee. After that they might give you an additional six months. Try living on 24 to 27 hundred net a month. There are about twenty people making over eighty-five.
There quota system is developed so one cannot achieve there goals. This is a piece of your compensation which you will not receive. If you are in a urban city, there will be a lot of competition,in addition there are two companies buying up the better shops. You will not get this business.
You do not have to believe me and apply for the job. If you are working grocery check out, hardware store employee or any other low paying job, this might be an upgrade from what you are doing. If you can read between the lines, this is not a good industry/company to work for.
With regards to the CEO, he is a nice fellow. But does not care if you can pay your bills.

This is a good job for a retired person with other income/investments.
Pros
quality products, 99.5% shipping ratio. Excellent customer service department
Cons
compensation you cannot live on.

Sales force is at the bottom of the totem pole......

Sales force brings in ALL the revenue but is continuously treated like they are the underlings. When sales reps start making money, they change the pay plan to stop it.
Pros
Great place to get sales training and experience
Cons
No longer a viable long term employer. It used to be

It's a good company to work for.
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Ramsey, NJFebruary 2, 2018
Wurth offers quality products and offers excellent training and sales support. As one the largest sales organization in the world, it is understandable that major emphasis is placed on the individual and group sales. However, with the constant need to grow sales volume, the company needs to address regional pricing in such a competitive market such as Los Angeles.

OK Company, pay plan changes make income fluctuate.
Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Lafayette, LAJanuary 8, 2018
Wurth USA is an OK Company but changes in pay plans usually are not in favor of the employee. Made things hard to make a steady budget. Products can also be expensive in comparison to others.

unrealistic expectations from employer
Territory Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Long Beach, CAJuly 25, 2016
When hired you are given minimal customers and very little support. They tell you it takes 3 years to get established but they only pay you for a year. Some unrealistic expectations and sales goals with minimal support and limited product line.

High turnover with benefits to veterans.
Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAMay 26, 2016
I read other negative reviews before I took the position. I was apprehensive but the hiring staff assured me they were addressing the challenges. The reviews are correct;
The company has high turn over.
They make the new people hunt and give the big accounts to the veterans sales staff before the green staff leave.
Pros
great reputation for quality
Cons
corpaorate is in change mode with new CEO and future is unsure
