    Pros

    Somewhat decent salary for part-time workers.

    Cons

    Little appreciation for efforts. Management more concerned with numbers than people. Sales team is very unhappy and has a "could care less" attitude. Faults are accentuated far more than qualities. Sales force defies management because they know that nothing will be done to them.

    Advice to Management

    Praise good work frequently. Reprimand weak sales associates and eventually "weed out" the ones who should not be employed.


  9. Good place

    Salary is lower than industry average

    Pros

    Overall, I loved working for Daymon. My on-site team was a fantastic group of people who fully supported each other. My direct supervisor for my last 2 years at the company was a GREAT manager, and she did everything she could to support me in my career growth and to address any issues I encountered during my employment. Working for Daymon was the most challenging professional experience I have had, but the payoff was that I learned a LOT in very little time. If you are able to hang for a bit, you will have a lot of skills to add to your resume.

    Cons

    The particular retailer I supported while working for Daymon was not managed very well. Unfortunately, working on-site at a corporate office that is poorly managed means your experience will not be great (no matter how great your Daymon team is). You will need to conform to that company's policies and culture, and there's only so much your Daymon team can do to combat that.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe push back on the retailer a bit more to establish Daymon's autonomy and help employees feel like they are working for Daymon and not the retailer. On-site contractors from other companies had a bit more flexibility regarding hours, working remotely, etc. Otherwise, management does a great job and I have no complaints!


  11. Take Advantage Of The Opportunities And Don't Wait For Them To Come To You

    I worked at Daymon Worldwide (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was a great company to learn about the grocery business and learn about the retail, wholesale and mass market verticals, in addition to learning about the thousands of suppliers and hundreds of commodities/products that Daymon represented. The experience became a great career springboard for many successful alumni.

    Cons

    Daymon first began to veer off course when the ESOP plan was created as a mechanism to facilitate an eventual ownership transition to the employees. While the ESOP plan no doubt was looked upon favorably by many who have benefited financially, the tradeoff became significant changes in management, the direction of the company, and the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck!
