    Pros

    Most of the people a fun, they good health care benefits, some training, fun industry, you have personal time and they for the most part let you do your thing. Friday meetings consist of sampling new products.

    Cons

    Warehouse runs the company, there is no liaison between sales and warehouse, lots of pressure, and stress, They don't have any sort of training that is beneficial they just kind of throw you to the wolves, Hard to move up in the company, Male dominated, expect to be contacted by your accounts at all times day or night.

    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 worked at Glazer's

    Pros

    Flexibility, as long as accounts were serviced. Decent health benefits.

    Cons

    The company change from commission to pay for performance benefits no one but the big dogs. When you meet goals, they set even higher more ridiculous ones not considering the demographics of, or previous sales results in your assigned territory. Even if you do perform well, you can earn no where near what you could with the previous commission based structure. You are constantly forcing new products on customers, doing "whatever it takes" per management to get it done. Management therefore promoting and encouraging unethical behavior. There is no employee loyalty. How a long term employee can win TWO incentive trips then get let go for non-performance all within the same calendar year is beyond comprehension

    There is little opportunity for advancement, especially if you are not in the "good ole boys" club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a little more concern for your employees and incent and compensate them better.

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

    Pros

    Somewhat structured, but flexible enough to manage your own time. It used to be a fun industry, hopefully it gets back to where it was 5 years ago.

    Cons

    Poor pay structure. The company went from commission to a "pay for performance" which as it turns out does not really pay for performance. You get paid if you are able to check off a set of 8-12 ridiculous goals. The majority of these goals are capped so that even if you do perform well, you can still only earn so much. I'm sure for the CEO it was a great decision but as far as the Sales Force is concerned it was probably the worst change ever.
    Constantly forcing new items onto customers. "Innovation" has taken all of the joy out of this job. On a monthly basis we are forced to sell new items to a predetermined account base, whether it makes since for the account or not. When the sale is refused by the customer we are told to get it done even if we have to come out of pocket.
    Almost zero opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your Sales Force on what they produce. Less innovation from suppliers.

    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.
