I worked at DS Services of America full-time (More than 3 years)

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 Management

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

    I have been working at DS Services of America full-time

    Pros

    This is a classic case of a good company on paper, but poorly run from the top.

    Cons

    It's more than a full time job. It's more like a double time job. Very political and very little training and support. You will always be forced to run a route because of lack of help. You will always have tractor or van issues and never have enough. You will always have to be away from what you should be doing as a manager. You will always be told that it will get better.Never enough coffee or water equipment and what is available will be about a 25% defective rating. Causing you to have to continuously be behind..

    Advice to Management

    Organize a training course for all positions that will give the basic info needed to do the job effectively. Carry better equipment and keep it in stock.
