    Former Employee - Marketing Associate in Saint Cloud, MN

    I worked at Appert's Foodservice full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Health insurance was pretty good along with matching 401K plan that was competitive. Fellow sales employees were good to work with and very helpful with following up with customers.

    Cons

    Upper management was terrible, very unrealistic, out of touch. Sales reps were blamed for everything, no mistakes, out of stocks, disgruntle drivers, miss picks, not competitive with product, pricing, long hours. Very high turn over after the buy out in sales and other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your way or the highway is not a good way to manage, motivate or keep employees; company is not the same after the buy out; things have changed!

    Never have the same day twice.
    Flexible schedule.
    Work autonomously.

    Cons

    Transportation issues--late trucks, disgruntled drivers.
    Purchasing challenges--out of stocks/communication.
    Management seems to have its own agenda regardless of what front line sales thinks.

    Pros

    great customers, overall go.od products

    Cons

    Management Management and then theres management. Nepatism is rampant. If youre not an ass kisser, you wont be there long. Zero tolerance for new comers who make honest mistakes as they learn the ropes. Judgemental, closed minded, racist, and crude

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop MICRO Managing, Stop giviong overloaded sales reps with meaningless tasks they are busy enough. Get some people skills and remember, .people in glass houses.............
