    I worked at Glazer's full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Got to learn the business, good launching off opportunity, create your own works schedule, fun events, good coworkers.

    Cons

    Zero real Communication from manangment, only cares about company making their money with unrealistic goals/timelines, no holidays off or holiday pay, incentives take up to a year to be paid on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees for their work in a reasonable amount of time. Go back to being a "family owned company" that you claim you are.

    I have been working at Glazer's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and can work from home when necessary. The company has moved onto SAP and there is a lot of changes happening. Growth by buying other companies and trying to expand into a global market. Many employees have been there a long time.

    Cons

    Company has moved onto SAP and there is a lot of changes happening at the company. They are changing the work offices to shorter cubicles. Everyone (no exceptions that I am aware of) gets 3 weeks of vacation after 7 years of full time employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shorter cubicles allow noise and visual distractions.

    I have been working at Glazer's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You have a lot of freedom(depending on your boss) to manage your sales territory Many supplier events. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Taken quite a number of paycuts over the years due to them changing compensation rates. No more commission. Base salary and PFP's. which can be unrealistic. New regime is trying to run us like a bank and the new SAP system has caused many issues from top to bottom. Doesn't have the family owned feel to it anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to take care of your loyal good employees more and maybe they will stop jumping to the competition.

    I worked at Glazer's full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Informal atmosphere: job not as stressful or technical as most in this field; generally good managers

    Cons

    This is a private, family owned company. The new generation of owners came of age after the company was well established so they have no loyalty to the employees who helped build it. They also do not seem interested in being in the business so all they want is the money. Company control was taken from longtime loyal employees and handed over to an "investment banker" (actually a lawyer) and his associates from NYC. They immediately launched huge lay-offs which targeted older employees (but they hid it by bringing on tons of young people to work in the warehouses for a few weeks/months which they also let go) and started the usual steal from the poor give to the rich US business practices: stopped paying bonuses, froze salaries, combined job loads, etc. If you've come from a typical modern company then you won't notice. If you've come for what you heard about the old Glazer's: loyalty, good pay, caring management, etc. just go in knowing that era is over. It really is a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These guys have a record of stripping out companies or burning through the company's cash and then bailing once it's gone or they get board. Get your family business back while there is still something to take back.

    I worked at Glazer's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Liked the freedom of the job. Self directed. Provided training. Early on commission and incentives were pretty good.

    Cons

    Company changed direction last few years after new ceo. Changed pay structure twice and cut back incentives. Employees suffered. more turnover. They hired kids right out of college so they could get away with paying less. Tracked with a gps monitor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Saw a lot of turnover and employee unhappiness before I left due to costcutting. Also brands leaving in droves and customers very unhappy with company. They need to think about people.

    I worked at Glazer's full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, not much hassle from upper management, not a bad starting job if you're just out of school. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Repetitive work, low-pay. Little room for advancement from what I saw. Higher-ups will say one thing, then do something completely to the contrary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Y'all seem to know what you're doing, I suppose.
