    Pros

    Not many pros. Front line guys are great for the most part.

    Cons

    Try to run business with as few people as possible causing extremely long hours. They give paid vacation and holidays but good luck taking them as they will reject vacation requests and make you work holidays. Management beyond route manager are extremely out of touch and use fear to manage. As a salaried associate I worked 70+ hours for months and was denied when I requested vacation. Always felt DS was a stable job then one day was laid off with no warning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at area managers and local management. Ask their people how they are to work for.

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Co-Workers were honest, hard working.

    Cons

    CEO, CFO out of touch and brash personalities. Company is ran like the good ole boys club and totally mismanaged. You can't do your job because you are too busy chasing rabbits for management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employees and trust them for their expertise and knowledge.
