Rare Find These Days

Supplier Relations (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at The BusBank full-time for more than 5 years

ProsVery flexible, decent pay, great benefits, 401K, great team players, fun office atmosphere, easy location to commute to, pre-tax travel benefits.

ConsI don't feel there are many cons, if any, working with The BusBank. Pay starts out a little tough for new sales people until they are able to build a customer base, but the majority of opportunities are inbound so you don't have to go find your own clients.,However, like any sales position being proactive will set you apart from the rest and speed up your ability to make great money.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen company goals increase, the sales team is basically getting a raise, but the support team is required to do more work for the same money, would be nice to if everyone reaped the benefits of increased goals/numbers/growth.

Review of the BusBank

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at The BusBank full-time for more than a year

ProsEntrepeneurial spirit when I was there, a great location

Consvery low pay for support roles, disorganized, frustrating communication between sales and support staff

Advice to Senior ManagementI'm sure things have changed since I have been there, but if I had to say one thing, make certain that the sales team is picking up both good leads and maintaining strong relationships with vendors. Also, if as a smaller company, make sure you reviewing your compensation plans to ensure you have a competitive advantage.

ProsManagement is flexible and make logical decisions. Good to work for a company that stands by their conviction, and does the right thing. Very ethical company, does what they say they will do, unlike our competitors

ConsTrusting our operator partners to perform at the level we request. Assumptions being made about us based on our former owner, and competitors.

Company is changing for better

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at The BusBank

ProsFlexibility
Investing in employees
Great Healthcare program
401k
Ability to work from home
Very Good wages for high performers.
Inbound leads, rather than having to Coldcall

ConsThe company did go thru a rough period that was very limiting and stressful for all that were involved. The Charter bus industry is not as exciting as other products that people can sell.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company should continue to invest in more sals support staff as these would make the job even more enjoyable.

ProsHealth benefits, relaxed work atmosphere, smaller sized company that allows for younger staff to take on leadership roles if they are successful

ConsNo IRA or 401K offered, transporting groups in buses is not very exciting to sell, did not take the down economy well
