    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Mondelez International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was a great job right out of school with alot of hope and promise. Looks good on a resume to work for a large company (was Kraft foods while I was there) and the other sales reps were great to work with, management made it unbearable

    Cons

    Was told I would spend 6 months to a year as an SA, travel the territory and learn the business which was not a problem. Was promoted to a sales rep and did that for two years with promises that after one year I would be up for Assistant DM positions in the region. After my two years, I was told I would need at least three more as a rep to be considered for management so I decided to leave the company. I had also dealt with enough Wal-Mart managers that were the worst human beings on the planet enough times that I dreaded every second I had to spend in those stores. Being that they are a large percent of your sales, you spend a lot of time around these people who are told in their trainings that vendors (Mondelez) steal from them (Walmart) so never give them what they are asking for, only what is on their planner. The pay was not bad for the state I was in given my limited experience right out of college but 30K (even with the company car) in every major city impossible to live on. The sales objectives I was given were outrageous during my second year as a rep. due to my good first year and they dictate your bonus which was very frustrating. We were told to not make excuses even though our warehouses would run out of our highest volume items during peak seasons or show up very damaged which is a pretty good excuse to me. My DM was one of the most condescending and hypocritical people have ever met in my life and am so thankful I no longer report to him. Most of the other Reps did not have an education and had been doing it for so long they had no other options (which most of the told me before I left) which was very depressing considering they were great people but became miserable stocking grocery store shelves all day and dealing with receiving clerks who hated their jobs as well. To make things worse, you only get an increase of pay around 1%-2% (top reps get 3!!!) every year which is not even close to covering inflation. I was told that Assistant DMs only make 45K when promoted and DM’s make around 60k. Women always got opportunities before men, even if they were more inexperienced or incompetent and this is due to their culture. I am not bitter about this but it is just a fact with their culture, they promote minority candidates ahead of anyone, even those who are better fit for the job. So, if you want to stock grocery store shelves all day, trying to sell space to Walmart managers who despise all vendors, while being filled with promises of promotions that less qualified people are given based on their gender alone, spend a couple years with this company and end up loathing your job. I read many similar stories out of college before I worked for Kraft (now Mondelez) and wish I would have gone with my instincts, I could have saved myself a lot of headaches and frustration. I love the job I am doing now and my past co-workers who have since left (directly out of college hires as well) tell me the exact same thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of their managers have the same philosophy and mindset due to the Mondelez culture- hit your outrageous sales objectives that have increased due to some arbitrary percent conjured up by some finance guy in Illinois and don't tell me legitimate excuses as to why you can't hit them. They get ALOT of pressure from their RVPs and to keep their jobs, they treat you terribly. Tell your employees the truth about their career path and don’t call them after they get home from work. That was one of the worst aspects of the job, knowing that your boss would call you at all hours of the night demanding to know why your projection was so low. When I am home from work after my job is complete, I am DONE working.
