    I love the team environment and all hands on deck approach. It's a effective way to get everyone to work together.

    The only downside is layoffs during slow seasons.

    I worked at Vistar Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Generous paid time off 2 weeks vacation after 1 year, the environment was professional and friendly also they are big on training the sales force and give you all of the tools you need to do the job. Laptop, phone, expense credit card. I never had to pay for anything out of my own pocket. Top notch company.

    Cons

    The company changed the way we dealt with customers. Instead of growing existing business the focus was changed to a new customer base. It was just opening new accounts and have little to do with the customer once they were set up. It got to be boring and I did not see a chance to move up. it was just a grind day after day which was why I left for the most part. Management was fair and professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat experienced workers with respect and give them some praise once in a while as well as showing that you can give the benefit of the doubt.

    I have been working at Vistar Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Roma / PFG / Vistar is one of the leaders in food distribution. The quality of the products that they have branded are in a class above the rest. It is easy to sell great quality products that you can be proud to sell.

    Cons

    It is a challenge to make money in the food distribution industry at the present time. With the rise of food prices the margin that a sales person can produce is less and less every year. It makes for a very challenging work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to look at reorganizing the pay structure for Area Managers. If you want to keep good qualified employees they will need to be paid for the hard work they put into the job. I would recommend a salary plus structure. This will help your employees get paid as well as promote growth.
