Overall good experience for the CPG industry, but pay is something to be desired.

I have been working at Acosta

Pros

Chance to work on many different CPG lines and manage trade funds and promotional planning. Good exposure to the industry.

Cons

Long hours and pay that is known to be well below industry average. I've found turnover to be quite high as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at pay and overall compensation vs the industry.

    Pros

    - Good mileage compensation
    - Competitive pay
    - They'll pay for your hotel if you travel far enough

    Cons

    - Took me over a month between getting hired and getting in to training.
    - The employee website is very poorly designed.
    - I ended up being assigned to a completely different territory than the one I was applied to -- all the way to the other side of the state where the Northern California border is! And they knew I was a student, too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had to jump through hoops just to get a straight answer as to when and where I would start working, as nobody seemed to be communicating with each other. The fact that I ended up being assigned to a territory on the other end of the state despite my application being for a specific area is very terrible and unprofessional.
