    Pros

    Good Pay, somewhat independent. Customers are usually enjoyable to be around except maybe Wal Mart. Not much else is good.

    Cons

    Hours, Family time, management always know better despite experience or results. There is always a new initiative that is unreasonable and unrealistic on top of the early mornings (like 2am-4am) or the long hours(10-12) Management will not even flinch if new people are working 14 hour days. It just seems like everyone, including management is being pushed to do more than what one person can or should do.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to the front line instead of constantly condemning. Wake up and realize that injuries and accidents are a result of long and early hours. Stop the double talk ie, starting a route at 3 AM, but we need 8-10 hours of sleep. Its not humanly possible, especially with a family. Remember management is there for employees, not the other way around.

    Pros

    Great products-HAD great manager then they found a paperwork error to fire him, and after he was fired they changed how the paperwork was being done to cover their behinds.

    Cons

    Suck ups promoted over managers who care about their people and don't drink the coporate kool aid.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "yes" managers and retain the mangers who care about the company and the employees and aren't afraid to give feedback that may be negative, though is the truth. In St. Louis we lost our warehouse manager of over 10 years who cared about us and we were productive and safe and worked as a team for the most part. He gets railroaded out because they want to promote a suck up who thinks he is the greatest thing since Cheetos. He was only cocerned about himself and his career. We had it great with previous manger and then for 3 years it was a living hell. He was moved to another role, not sure it was a promotion, hopefully not. We are hoping our new manager we be like the one we lost a few years ago.

    Pros

    Iconic brands that brings instant credibility with retail customers. Company is always looking for ways to stay on the cutting edge and ahead of the competition both in products, technology, and value added service to their customers.

    Cons

    They restructure every 2 years so the security level isn't good. PepsiCo Foodservice just bought 80% of the Pepsi bottlers to have more control over distribution but the integration of the bottlers and foodservice division has made this a rough uncertain transition for the employees

    Advice to Management

    Stay grounded with your front line sales employees--they are the true ears to the organization to what is really happening in the field.
