I have been working at Herr Foods full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Outside everyday, potential to interact with different people on a daily basis. Good support from upper management. Some flexibility in schedule.

Cons

Long hours, no quality of homelife. Hard for management to understand that no matter how many new products they add, our clients only have a limited amount of room.

Advice to Management

Remember...quality of life!

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - If you hit your sales goals there is money to be made - you do get attention when you do well - Ownership really seems to care about every employee - family atmosphere - Never any lay offs

    Cons

    - Dont hit your sales goals your dead meat - If you dont kiss butt your deadmeat - No matter how well you do when you do something that isnt 100% company policy even if its for the better your deadmeat - get on mgrs bad side you NEVER get off - long hours for not much pay -unrealistic sales goals - company does NOTHING to promote it self - Drug plan is terrible -Mgrs are a collection of who kissed the best butt - Holiday weeks are extremely stressful - When you do well your recognized but when you do bad everyone knows it including the other sales reps - Mgr had terrible breath and did nothing about it. - Mgr got rid of anybody who didnt follow his ridiculous sales ideas. Even though he hadnt been in the field for years - Mgmt out of touch with reality - Penny pinching constantly - The secretary steals out of sales reps deposits. One time I triple counted and had my DM count and came up five dollars short. Got written up - Write up are plentiful -

    Advice to Management

    Treat your good sales reps with more respect. Understand that sometimes things wont always go right. Understand the the best ass kissers are always the best candidate. Understand that spending money makes money. Jim Herr is a great guy. Treats you with respect. My problem is not with him its with that phony in your Oakland branch. Acts like he is your best friend so he can get your loyalty. YPou work hard for him becuase he acts like he cares then when things dont go right he screws you. He covers his own ass every time.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great chance for advancement and a great company to work for. They hire within for greater opportunities and the starting pay is decent.

    Cons

    A lot of hours. Some weeks consisting of 50-60 hours and occasional Saturday work. You can pretty much throw personal life out the door until you reach upper mangement level

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is fairly decent. There are sometimes they make you do things to make them look better, but in the end it wasn't the right decision. But overall, the managment is good
