    Get out of your office and work with the people you oversee. There's so much going on that you're not aware of!

    I worked at Guest Supply full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    During my employment I really felt like I was a part of a family. Great benefits PTO and overall wonderful experience working with the vendors and customers.

    Cons

    Micro managing. With times being tough there was a lot of pressure on sales reps to meet impossible sales goals and if you didn't you were monitored and taken away from your desk for training and asked to complete weekly detailed goal sheets that took so much time away from your customers it was impossible to meet their goals.

    Pros

    Great place to work. They usually acknowledge hard work when the effort is put into it

    Cons

    Some mgmt are clueless when it comes to the day to day transactions, much less knowing how to use the systems.


  6. A mistake accepting a job offer has effectively wasted three plus years of happiness I could have had working elsewhere.

    Pros

    No where else is offering you a job!

    Cons

    Overloaded with tasks unrelated to your specific job function and or, description. Company pushes work out to avoid having to pay administrative salaries necessary to sergvice the customer base best. Quite a bit of dysfunction up the management ladder, manages by intimidation rather than addressing areas that management might be able to change procedures to enable each department to perform more effectively. Sales personnel are at the bottom of the totem pole and their voice and that of the customer, are not heard or valued.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of old dead weight in the upper management positions and start listening to your customer's feedback to improve service and operational efficiencies to meet the customer's needs and improve customer retention.

    Pros

    I loved this company and this job. I truly regret that I left. This is a company where you can definitely establish a long-term career, earn great pay and retire.

    Cons

    There is a lot of autonomy, and while that has many benefits, it would be more effective if there was better anymore frequent communication between national and field sales.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do, and empower the TMs to manage their territories in a manner that if most effective for them.

    Pros

    Good environment, good working place. Nice people work there. I think I can learn a lot from the colleges and the boss.

    Cons

    The LA office is going to relocate to its HQ, which is in NJ. I think this maybe cause some trouble.
