    Pros

    Good company
    Plenty of Upward movement if you are qualified
    Multiple divisions and business groups to utilize skilled employees
    Competitive salary and great overall benefit package

    Cons

    There is a very lopsided manager to subordinate ratio. Starting at the bottom of the food chain as a warehouseman I had to answer to six separate managers and supervisors within just my local cooperative group, that is before even getting to the corporate level management.

    Advice to Management

    Thin the herd a little bit

    Pros

    Nothing is good about this company. They are cons ruining people lives.

    Cons

    The management and upper directors bend the policies for who they want AND especially hired friends and family. A lot of favoritism shown. Stressful and the pay is awful for the work load
