Outside Sales Representative in Cold Spring Harbor:
"Get It in writting."
When I was hired to work at GKLS, it was with the understanding that I produce sales and follow through with the work. However, the work cannot be adequately without constant supervision. When the company hires individuals, they tell me they hired them for me because the guy knows what to do. They set the salary scale without me being able to test drive him in his knowledge and decision making. Everyone of their hires bombs. I have to train all 6 of my daily crew members to perform each and every task at every job site, so they can fill in the gaps, as they'll know what has to be done. I 'd rather bring them up within the company and train as I go through the season. But they continue to throw at me these high paid guys who do not know what to do.

Outside Sales Representative in Romulus:
"Look around."
When I walk into a business I start looking around inconspicuously and learn how they operate(more of a home feel vs Corp, Strict and Diciplined or forgiving and un organized) Are they "by the Books" or more relaxed that's how you need to treat them. I still act like myself but I will speak very clearly and proper and refer to following procedures for the "business" type and I will let loose and relax with the Mom and Pops type.
