    Pros

    They have good health and other benefits. You form great relationships with co-workers and customers. I learned a lot of new things about the food industry.

    Cons

    You're always working. There is no work/life balance. I don't recommend this job if you have kids. You do a lot of driving in your own car, and they don't cover any transportation costs.


  2. Poor management and over worked employees

    Pros

    The only Pro that i could think of was the benefits (health insurance)

    Cons

    Under paid, over worked employees. I worked there for 6 years. Management are horrible to emploees. They tend to overload them with work and then preach about work-life balance. Favortism. Always making promises and telling you what you want to hear but never following through with what they said and promised. Micromanaging at its best!!!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more to split the work load. Quit overloading your employees with work. Treat them with respect.

    Pros

    Good insurance, discounts on food, free lunches

    Cons

    Pay is below average, management is horrible to their employees. Overload their employees with work. Always make promises that they never keep.

    Advice to Management

    Need to pay more attention to what your employee needs are. What do they need to help with their workload and try to accomodate that. Less meetings and less office one on one time. Let them do their jobs. Hire more employees to even the work flow, dont just give the work to someone else when an employee leaves. BETTER MANAGEMENT. I have never been treated so rotten and I watched other be treated the same way. Quit making promises that you cant keep!

    Pros

    Compensation is fair and good benefits

    Cons

    Most finance and support positions are expected to work 50-60 hours per week without much consideration for work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just give work-life balance lip service as has been the case. The grind it out culture needs to be changed to keep the best talent.

    Pros

    Great health benefits and some great people to work with. I've learned a lot.

    Cons

    No work life balance. This is a 24/7 job. Quite a few cutthroat sales people. It's very stressful and tough business to be in. They are going through a lot of transitions right now.

    Pros

    Good initial training and overall a good job if you enjoy working a ton.

    Cons

    Flagrant abuse of of pay scale, salary, bonus, etc. The company has lost sight of customer service and the staff it requires to service said customers.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics and stop trying to recreate the wheel...

    Pros

    Great benefits for my family and great flexibility when you are a sales associate.

    Cons

    Too much nepotism involved. Many in the company are related in some way to the C.E.O. and he influences who advances and who stays and who goes. His family has great job security afforded to them no matter what they do. I respect how he got to his position, but those in his family he protects and creates new positions for when they fail at a current position are definitely irritating.

    Advice to Management

    Look to and support your actual talent and recognize when others must be let go, regardless of their ties or how they got their job.
