Featured Review

Residential Sales Manager

I worked at J.F. Cook Co.

Pros

Small company that strives for big profits. For the most part, employees help each others out when help is needed. The company does have high overhead which limits its ability to operate efficiently... and effectively. The company does try to create a culture that is unique to a distribution/ construction firm. The company has been around for over 60+ years and even though it has changed hands a few times, consumers still realize the quality that JF Cook produces. Newer management appears to be taking JF Cook to the next level if the economy cooperates. If my wife was not being transferred I would still be at JF Cook.

Cons

The high overhead does put a cap on additional staff that is needed to get to the next level. The economy does play a huge role on the success of the company and is out of the sales forces hands. The... limited staff does put more stress on all employees due to cross training and doing other tasks that prevent one from doing their job effectively.

Advice to Management

Let sales reps loose and just sell and complete jobs from start to finish. Hire an assistant for the sales force to take care of service calls and other miscellaneous paperwork. More sales = more... revenue for adding the proper staff. Otherwise, keep driving and improving the processes and Lean Manufacturing.
