    Pros

    Mostly friendly, they have incentives such as pizza or sub day (everyone gets lunch for free that day) sometimes they brought in doughnuts, coffee, healthcare rally

    Cons

    They say it's a family atmosphere, but it's not. Employees can be very judgemental

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees more - you'd have more happy employees that way

    Pros

    Rewarding job that challenges me daily. Responsible for ensuring grocery stores are serviced by sales reps. weekly. Work independently, but still have company support.

    Cons

    Challenging job that requires significant driving and organization. Must be extremely flexible and be able to do troubleshooting with immediate results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have successfully trained sales reps., developed service routes and ensured service levels have been met on a regular basis.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly. Great work if you're a warehouse worker. Great if you're right out of school looking for work experience.

    Cons

    Unless you are making them thousands of dollars, you are expendable. They only seem to cater to their upper management team.

    Pros

    There are many long term employees that have a passion for the business. The company has managed to grow yet keep the family atomosphere.

    Cons

    The company is not progressing with technology and business practices. They fall into "this is how we have always done things". The Executive and Management teams also need to have more effective communication with their teams.

    Pros

    good mothers hours. pay wasn't to bad. majority of people were good to work with. holidays off. job wasn't to hard.

    Cons

    supervisors Do NOT Support you what so ever.. You get treated like a door mat. No Raises or chance to move up in this company. Cut Hours whenever they feel they want to but expect you to do the same amount of work, and when it is Impossible they write you up..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your Merchandisers better after all they are the ones that make YOUR Paycheck... Do not expect to cut hours and for them to do the same amount of work..
