ProsBenifits,and thats only there thanks to Teamsters Union.

ConsAwefull Management, In the 4-5 years I have been there I have never been told good job, DSM,s and never get out in the market.
My paycheck has went only down since Ive started, almost back to training pay.
They are trying now to cut our commisions more.
Employee Moral is just the worst that I have ever seen

Ask for feedback from your RSRs on whats selling in there market.
Check up on your DSMs.
