Advice to Management

Management should work with their team in correcting issues with upper management. Complete disconnect. Training needs a overhaul. Take time with your people vs. crossing fingers for their success

    Pros

    There are no words to describe what a lousy business this is.

    Cons

    How can a company not get sued when they are firing all the older employees and replacing then with younger people? The Human Resource Department is the biggest joke of all, as it makes up lies about employees to support their termination. Get ready to pay out Big money for your practices.

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility. Interacting with the stores and building relationships with the workers there was the part I missed the most when I left.

    Cons

    No raises and poor vehicle reimbursement. Poor preparation by management for rolling out new programs. Their method is the "shoot, ready , aim" method that comes with a lack of attention to detail. This is also a byproduct of upper management not knowing what the merchandisers really do in the field on a daily basis. Lack of management consideration for employee issues-they just tell you that's the way it is and if you are unhappy, maybe you should get another job! I eventually took my supervisor's advice and left the company after 10 months.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your field people as they are the face of the company to the store owners and managers. Spend more time finding real solutions to field issues and less patting each other on the back and telling each other what a great job you all are doing when your field people get the target numbers. Give your merchandisers the freedom to do what they need to do in the different markets to get the job done!
