    Current Employee - Sales Representative/Merchandiser in San Francisco, CA

    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.

    Interview Details

    Only had one phone interview and a one on one with HR and my sales manager, very easy questions, didn't try to stump you just wanted to get to know you. I was very nervous this being my first big boy job net review, but they knew how to make you feel right at home. I Got a grate vibe from them and went with YMCo even though I got an off from SWS as well.
