  1.  

    I have been working at Young's Market

    Pros

    They are all for internal promoting.

    Cons

    Opportunities to move up in San Diego don't come around too often. You'd have to relocate to LA or OC since they are always posting in those areas.

    I have been working at Young's Market full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Much improved management training
    - In-touch upper management
    - People come first
    - Upward mobility available (if you can perform)
    - Younger employee base
    - Awesome industry to work in

    Cons

    - Limited positions in upper management
    - Not a lot of diversity in career paths after the sales representative position (currently)
    - Pay is not great, but with supplier driven incentives and overtime, opportunity to out earn your superiors is possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! I have learned more about the industry, sales, and myself in the past year than I had ever imagined I could. The re-vamped training program has made a HUGE difference, so keep up the same thinking and keep challenging yourselves to make training and development better... A salary bump wouldn't hurt either.

    I have been working at Young's Market full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Owners are heavily involved. The company has great culture and a lot of fun perks. Very motivating job and lets you do your job like you are running your own business.

    Cons

    Lifestyle job, projects never end, phone and email never stops. This also keeps the job interesting and fun as there is never a dull moment.

    Great support by management. Great pay for someone who is willing to work and plan ahead. plenty of training and support from management and fellow employees. A real team approach to everything they do.

    Not a single one. I wish they were in the location I moved to!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. The things I learned here will allow me to succeed anywhere I go. Hopefully I can find the same All in attitude somewhere else or I'll bring it!

    I have been working at Young's Market full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    So many times a day I feel like I'm not even working. The industry is very heavy on relationships so if you love people and they love you you'll find yourself wondering how you found a job where they paid you to be you.

    Cons

    You'll never stop thinking about work. Also I think there are some very unreal expecations that brands have once they get with a company like ours. With so many amazing brands out there it's becoming more and more important for brands to represent themselves and tell their special story. A distributor of our size offers wonderful economies of scales with help in the sales, marketing, PR and events area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the important things for the company as we can't make all the brands happy and if you do you'll never get to that point where it's enough.
