    Pros

    Amazing management team.
    Office staff always willing to help.
    Get to work with great customers.
    Get to set your own schedule.

    Cons

    A lot of admin work.
    Have to work with some horrible customers.
    It can take a while to build a solid customer base from scratch, hope someone retires shortly after you start so you can inherit some solid customers.

    Pros

    flexibility; ability to make "unlimited" bonus--which they don't tell you is A TON of schlepping french fries!; flexibility; fun customer base

    Cons

    A TON of schlepping cases of food--it takes A LOT to make ends meat here; expectations are high-much higher than at the start of my time here in 2011; you drive your own car all over your territory-meaning LOTS of wear & tear for which you are not reimbursed

    Advice to Management

    elevate your employees to greatness; BE who you want THEM to BE; bring back some of the relationship mindset

    Pros

    Decent Pay and Benefits. Great work/life balance. Stable earnings shielded from up and down Oil and Gas.

    Cons

    Lots of old school managers that have been around for 10+ years, and are not up date on corporate best practices. Zero communication between managers and associates. Actually, zero communication between anyone.

    Advice to Management

    COMMUNICATE
