Pros

Opportunities, especially if open to relocation
Rewarded if work hard, lateral opportunities
Budgets to build for long term success vs. chasing quarterly earnings

Cons

Location: Glendale, Solon, Oakland, Chicago. hard to get things done with so many locations.
IT systems are very slow.
Some divisions make their number with little effort, some work weekends, nights, and still miss.

Advice to Management

Combine into one location in the US for the food company to better manage talent and beat the competition.

    Pros

    The pay is excellent especially for people without a college education. The CDL (Commercial Drivers License) Training program is second to none and paid for by the company. 2 Weeks of vacation, 3 personal days, and 2 "Floating Holidays" your first year. The equipment is virtually brand new and top notch. You can take your personal vehicle out to merchandise accounts with a very generous reimbursement. Virtually unlimited free pizza and ice cream. Health insurance is reasonable and coverage is EXCELLENT especially for a non-smoker.

    Cons

    The routes are horribly out of balance. At my depot we have people that are at 115% of goal and 32% of goal. Middle management is horribly out of touch and they will tell you that their sophisticated routing and forecasting is infallible. HR is militant and the worst that I have ever encountered in my entire career. They recommend corrective action for everything and never even considered using discretion. They will call you to question you about something they "heard" you said or did. The District Managers are so busy and overwhelmed that it is virtually impossible for them to work with struggling sales reps. It may take them hours or days to return your calls or text messages. Anybody above the DSL's (District Managers) simply don't care and have never even seen a truck let alone driven one. Days are usually 12 to 16 hours. Sales positions are a small weekly base plus commission.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more managers! They are people too! They have families and obligations outside of their company cars and warehouses. 1 Warehouse = 1 DSL! Balance the routes, a globe is not sophisticated mapping.
