    Pros

    It's nice to have the flexibility of creating your own schedule, for the most part. You have the opportunity to speak with many people each day when you're in and out of stores.

    Cons

    Little work-life balance. Can be stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Part-time merchandising help needs more attention.

    I worked at Kellogg Company full-time

    Pros

    The best part of working for Kellogg Company is a competitive benefits package which includes time off that increases with length of service. The company vehicle for sales representatives is also a benefit.

    Cons

    Among the challenges are the long hours of work. This is the case for even the most organized individuals. The HR department is not as helpful as they could be to the employees. The rapport among employees could be greater as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although the amount of vacation can be nice as it accumulates over the years, the workload makes going on vacation quite an endeavor as the employee finishes covering the territory and then prepares everything (especially the coverage instructions) so the relief person can fill in and stay on pace in achieving sales goals. There needs to be greater balance between work and home life so that vacations can be more enjoyable.

    Pros

    Work with some of the most caring and compassionate and loyal individuals I have ever worked with and the company at this time has very good medical care benefits

    Cons

    Most mismanaged company I have ever worked for. No one in management communicates what they are doing in their department which will affect what should be done in other departments. There is no work - life balance. Every meeting (and there are many) seems to include the threat of losing your job. Company is focused on their stockholders instead of their consumers. Training department is a joke. Safety department places all blame back on employee even though something was brought to their attention. A lot of covering up my management so that they can keep their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Direct your focus back to consumer instead of shareholder. Develop a first class training program in order to reduce your cost per pound, address your quality problems and production rates. Workers that are under constant stress of job loss will never produce the cost savings, production rates, or quality which they are capable of producing. The direction in which the company is heading will increase the turnover rate of employees which eventually will lead to a lower standard of product produced. Work on increasing sales with award winning advertising, outstanding R&D team, "outside the box" thinking of product uses, making minimal adjustments to equipment and packaging that will create the addition of a new product produced from existing products, listen to consumers and make their "wish list" your "must list". The bottom line is: unless you focus on increasing sales instead of cutting cost you will die a slow death. After a while there will no longer be cost to cut and by then sales will be so low that you can not climb back up. Once you lose a consumer it is almost impossible to gain them back. Shareholders will always return if they can make money - loyalty is not important the them.
