Pros

Flexible hours, a lot of freedom in schedule, the company staff and management tend to be friendly. It's great working with the public.

Cons

Having to use your personal vehicle was a setback financially. Working with the store managers can be frustrating because they tend to be inexperienced and make poor decisions.

Advice to Management

Spend more time working with the customers.

  1. Great people to work with. Should be stable, but management tried to hard to turn it into a CPG.

    Pros

    Great people. Fair compensation. Interesting business once you learn it. Opportunity to learn about both a branded business and a private label business at same time.

    Cons

    Lack of clear vision from management. If you are aligned with corporate or FDD the bonus structure is unfair compared to being aligned to a specific business unit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop over hiring. Dean makes the same number of gallons a year, you don't need consultants and new departments to do what was done before with less people.

  2. IT SUCKS

    Pros

    Weekly pay and you do get enough hrs in

    Cons

    Management has NO clue whats going on, how some of management got their jobs is one of the great wonders of the world. The management cares more about idle time for the drivers then they do about getting the orders right.No sales people the ones we have havent been to a customer in YEARS, some customers dont even know they have a sales rep . Since they switched to this tru moo milk it sucks sales are down way down when is corporate going to notice this

    Advice to Management

    you must communicate with your employees try it sometimes youll be surprised at how well it works
