Having contracted for close on two years for RS I can honestly say it was the most pleasant working environment I have experienced. The staff are all great team players, management good and they believe in their company and forward progression.

The team and company were supportive, salary was average for the role these days and could be better. Great choices for company cars, life balance was a bit off balance some times as you have a lot of crm and contract work to do and that ends up being done once you're home in the evening. That aside the culture is pretty positive at Rd with some good people there. I did leave along with some others because our new line manager was a bully and a liar out to cover his own flaws by taking it out on others. I do believe an HR case was raised later on so hopefully he's not there anymore.
Pros
Culture, good support
Cons
Salary a bit low, balance sometimes a bit off

I hope you like being micromanaged, underpaids and not promoted unless you come from Brammer because that's what you will get.
The brammer leadership (that company that went into admin) have come in and hired their mates.


You have to put a code in if you want to go to the toilet, as a sales person who can go elsewhere and make better commision, why would you put up with this?


Glad I left, now I get paid for my growth.
Pros
Pto, work life balance.
Cons
Micromanagement, clueless middle management by in large.

A typical day is outbound calling customers you talk to on a daily basis, keeping up relationships and winning orders. I learnt a lot about phone manner, what services work and different customer types. Management are supportive and want the best for you, always around to help and understand what would make your job easier. Hardest part is getting hold of some customer, most enjoyable is winning a large order.
Pros
free tea and coffee, pension, company perks

This role is not a 9-5 job, it requires several hours working from home due to the high level of admin.
Be prepared to be constantly challenged and tested.

Feedback is encouraged however it is not well received.

A typical day involves visiting around 5 customers, generating opportunities and presenting the value proposition using a laptop, regular interaction with the Internal Key Account Manager, Supplier engagement is a KPI.

The most enjoyable part of the job is developing relationships and sales, the hardest part is the constant change, level of admin and politics.
Pros
People within the Team
Cons
Long hours

RS is a good company to work for. The induction process it long but gives you the knowledge for B2B consumption you need if you have not gained it from elsewhere.
The people that work for the business are friendly and helpful.
