Support from management

I was top sales for San Antonio for 1 1/2 running ,so even though I was average for production . Management made sure to keep me off the radar where numbers were low.

Teamwork

Individual pulling their own weight hit all their metrics set by the company. The weakest link get a total of 6 month - 1 year to bring numbers up or get enough write ups to be let go.

Freedom to work independently

Plenty of that once your in your own van that you take home . Your day is routed from your front door everyday.

Internal Communication

Monthly meeting every month on a inventory pull day which I always thought way was dumb. Now that meeting just ate into properly cleaning straightening , doing turn ins and organizing my van to ran at least the day..

Gender Equality

In the field there maybe 3 females totally between 6 location

Attitude towards older colleagues

Their motto is if you can handle the work load try to work hard enough to provide to company your more supervisor material or find another line of work.

Overall compensation for your work

When I was there I love my job and my pay with benefits. I was there only 3 month when ask to travel to Odessa on travel team . From that time on they just sign me up and let me know the dates , I was more then glad to go out of market.

Environmental Friendliness

Give and take you can have the personality and between the customers or immediate supervisor have to do a restart to your day to not bring attitude to next customer.

Work-Life Balance

It's all about production

Job Security

As long as you can keep up your metrics and be safe when driving

Handicapped Accessibility

Limited

Workplace Safety

Number 1 priority

What I dislike about the company

I had a torn meniscus in January 2015 was cleared to return September 2018 . My old supervisor said let me honest we demand more at least pay and sales don't matter , which that was my strength.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stick to a uniform plan to follow with giving thought and feedback from all management together to help implement a clear plan and direction that will help make a change or direction much better with getting realtime feedback from all employees . Need better communication skills.

What I like about the company

The coworkers and customer base .

What I dislike about the company

Never any clear direction from upper management . Too many changes that cause a lot of frustrations in employees. Lots of high turnover.
