Pros

Number one thing about being a delivery driver is your boss is not sitting in the truck with you breathing down your shoulder and during the summer you get to enjoy the nice weather.

Cons

Challenges include not getting your proper product for your route, which then the managers seem to think you should have to run a special for. If you have old trucks then we'll like mine it breaks down all the time. You put in long hours anywhere from 55-60 hours a week and the pay for that amount of time is not good..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't say that your going to do something and not do it.. Learn to respect your route drivers who are out there doing the dirty work for the company trying to keep the customers happy. Especially when we don't get paid for crap.

    Pros

    Very focused training on sales process and support from all levels of management. iPad use with very forward thinking applications. Innovations happening quickly.

    Cons

    Making sure activity level met results required each week. President's club seems elusive unless you have a very large account in your territory and the timing is right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have Sales Managers and General Managers work their own Large Account list in all territories to help get the ball rolling.

    Pros

    Advancement potential strong, significant incentives for transfering locations.

    Cons

    How the company bills and sets pricing structure with its customers needs to change. Invoices are insanely complicated with a ridiculous amount of separate charges.
    Company is fairly "tech-backward" and very old school in how they operate. They are making large and rapid strides to catch up on this front, but still somewhat behind their competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to streamline its charges, and roll up the numerous confusing extra charges into one price for one service. Focus more on infrastructure and operational efficiency. Increase attention and resources on the technology front, to better stay at the front of the pack in this area.
