    I have been working at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    No doubt about it, C&S pays far better than any other employer of its kind for warehouse personnel. You'll be recognized repeatedly for your efforts if you are one of the favored employees, but forget about it if you're not.

    Cons

    The supervisor tier at C&S leaves some substantial room for improvement. I'm speaking for one facility in particular, really. Once you get to a level of management, you'll be able to chew tobacco in the warehouse, surf the internet or play on your phone while everyone else is hustling to get work done. The only reason most supervision will need (or want) to say something to you is if it impacts them negatively (when you do something wrong, or an unsafe act). One member of management comes to work looking like they just got back from a camping trip, with their hair looking they had a hard night in the woods or something, and didn't bother to shave. How about that for setting the example for your subordinates?! There is no real control over who gets what type of work, and no one monitors it, either because after all, that would take some real effort. Incentive employees are frustrated and the morale is quite low. The pay for some is fantastic, and for others it's just mediocre.
    Career opportunities only exist for those they choose. You can't be just anyone; you have to be someone that everyone simply likes... you can be a complete slacker with no abilities, but if you're liked, you'll become a golden boy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to grasp the concept of paying everyone on an equal scale in some positions, which will require a layer of trust on all of its warehouse employees - something that has been earned by some very hard-working people over the years. Also, with all the business that's come on board with us, it's time for our company owner to flip the bill a little and give everyone who brought him to his current level of success, a well-earned raise. Another idea: let's bear down on some of these over-privileged supervisors and put more demands on them, instead of demanding more and more on the guys that have made this company the success that has paid dividends.

    I have been working at C&S Wholesale Grocers as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They provided great benefits (housed me as an intern) and had a great workplace environment. They also paid for transportation costs very generously. The management team worked very hard to ensure that the employees were treated well.

    Cons

    Headquarters are located in the middle of no where (Keene, NH) but there are things to do if you try hard enough to find them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!
