    Pros

    (2) Weeks vacation first year of employment, (3) Weeks vacation after three years of service, on and on thereafter. Snap-On Tools product discount is very generous. If your are hired in a position that requires travel, this employer will allow you to retain all of your loyalty points with all the lodging, airline and car rental companies. Traditional perks assured. Management is very flexible with schedules. Compensation is competitive, considering former employers that I've worked for. Also the employee stock purchase program is great. It has allowed me to easily save money. I highly recommend this company to a person who is starting to come of age in their career. When you get hired at this company. Your friends and family will say "you work for a good company".

    Cons

    Some of the positions require a lot of travel. Frequent, extended amounts of travel 90-100% of your working weeks. You have to love the open road in order to be successful in any of the positions that require travel.

    Advice to Management

    Management at this company works very hard. And they do a great job.
