    I worked at Snyder's-Lance

    Pros

    Local managers always were willing to help. Always done by a reasonable hour. The hours were great.

    Cons

    We are independent contractor but they want everything done the corporate way. Want you to be frito lay but we pay for everything. Management want it run corporate but we are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit treating the independentsame like they are independent because we weren't allowed to make decisions on what accounts to deal with.
