    Pros

    Excellent coworkers and management. You're not micromanaged and are treated like an adult. I would recommend working for them to others. The training was well done and managed as well.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better but still above industry standard. Sometimes not enough direction but nothing major. There can be massive travel involved with certain positions.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have much for management to consider. I feel most employees generally have a positive attitude of the company and it's future. Hopefully staying ahead of the curve and picking up new trends in the food retail business continues.

    Interview

    A person called and left a msg. They didn't say which company they calling from, but I knew based on the phone # on my caller ID & the job title she stated for the position. They stated they really liked my resume and wanted to do a phone interview & possibly have me come in for a face to face. Then they give me a cell phone # to call back. I found it odd they didn't give me the company's # or an extension for their office. I called the cell # 3 times & left msgs., even texted. They never called or replied. I called the company, couldn't get a person on the phone, just kept going around & around in the automated system. I finally managed to leave a msg. w/HR vm asking if someone could call back to verify this person did call me for an interview or if I'm even a candidate for the position, no response. Having read other reviews on this site and based on my experience w/o even walking through their doors, I'm glad it didn't pan out. This company doesn't sound like a place I'd want to work for.
