    Keirton Response

    February 4, 2020CEO

    Thank you for your candid feedback. It is great you've had an overall good experience with us. It sounds like you are a very growth-oriented person - you are in the right place, we just need to find a better way to help your journey. While we don't always have immediate growth opportunities in every department, we often have something somewhere in the organization. We would love to see people try new things and learn new skills. We've had numerous people move between departments and they are able to add value in unexpected ways. I noticed you mentioned our personal development plans feel overlooked. I would agree with you, they can be overlooked at times when we go through busy periods. We have recently begun a plan to revive and rebrand a simplified version to better support you and your goals. As for your leader not showing the love. We feel that no one shows up to work with the intention of doing a poor job. We've had numerous people promoted and in some cases, we did not provide adequate leadership training. We now have a new system that is constantly evolving to ensure leaders get the training, coaching, and mentorship they need. If you still find you are not being recognized for your contribution, please contact me. Jay

    I have been working at Keirton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I'm two weeks away from my second year with Keirton Inc. I work remotely in the US and cover a few states within my territory. My position in the company requires close to 60% travel. As a Territory Sales Manager or Field Rep, you will be covering a large territory by car & plane. Relax, you do get the weekend's off and they don't expect you to work 12 hour days. If you enjoy traveling, meeting new people, building strong relationships, and building something special... look no further! Typical work week's are Monday -Friday with the weekends off. Exceptions to this would be trade shows or vendor days with our retailers which happen maybe 6-10 times a year. I've watched the company grow from 48 employees to now almost 80. I've witnessed promotions achieved within the company. Hard work, commitment, and being a team player pays off in the long run here. My Pros: I love my work family, I've never once felt micro-managed, You own your role in the company, Good Healthcare benefits, Travel Reimbursements - build those points up! Vacation time is great - specifically the longer you work here, Retirement Plan, Profit Sharing, Good base salary with quarterly bonuses that are achievable, fun office environment - I fly into Canada about 2-3 times a year. No drama, We really don't have a lot of turnover, We really do help businesses grow - which is a great feeling to have at the end of every work day. Our leadership team actually listens to what our employees say, want, and need. Which is a huge plus in my book.

    Cons

    It can be stressful at times and that's the only reason why I gave this review 4 stars instead of 5. Forecasting for any industry is never easy. Traveling quite a bit can sometimes get old. Until I remember working my corporate desk job 3 years ago and laugh. That being said, if you're not a little stressed from time to time, you most likely don't care anymore. At least that's what I've noticed. Some of these reviews have complaints about the parking. I don't work at the main office so I don't notice this. The last I heard a month ago, we're looking to move into a bigger building soon - So maybe take a breathe and "Walk it off" - Dad joke. We could use more team players. We gradually get busier every quarter, especially in the US with new states opening up. So hiring the right people to fill these new roles is crucial to our companies growth.
