    I worked at Snap-on full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Own your own business with independence. A set route with assigned territory and list of calls. A proven sales system that provides keys to success.

    Cons

    Many many hours. Even after you get home there is still a lot of work to do. Hard to balance work and family time. A lot of money and start up capitol to buy-in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to communicate more to the franchisee who might be struggling.

    I worked at Snap-on

    Pros

    They pay well for field management positions.

    Cons

    They repeatedly violate laws under the FMCSR. I didn't even receive proper training to know how badly I would have been screwed if I was ever stopped by a DOT officer. I found out after i switched careers. Also, my travel budget was gutted so badly after my "promotion" that I had to sleep in a truck over three hours from home most week nights. Senior management had no idea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're taking steps in the right direction, but your training regarding the operation of fleet trucks needs a complete overhaul. Communication needs improvement too.

    Pros

    Regular pay check, incredibly hard to get fired, can scan your car any time

    Cons

    No respect for employees, no faith in employees, motivational talks is the threat of being fired, ignorant, not forward thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees, ditch the ways of having everyone walk on egg shells, look to the future, be proactive not reactive, it is no longer 1988, nepotism needs to stop
