    Pros

    They pay really good, you can make a lot of money for a person with just a high school diploma and a little bit of warehouse experience plus if you need a little bit of extra cash you can work harder to make it. (PTO) Paid Time Off (Vacation, Sick, Personal Days) you get them within three months of working . Micro Managed company, and you will work no longer than 45 hours a week and still make good money.

    Cons

    They go by the book so if you have issues with following protocol you will be out the door quick. They take favoritism to another level. While you work hard to get your money others that have seniority will get special privileges and make more than you will while they work less hard than you are working. Everything Is blamed on Selectors everyone else is safe other than selectors but we do make the most so they put the most pressure on selectors. Co-workers have attitudes and will get on your nerves because your time is money and everyone is for self. Their is no alliance within selectors the managers sabotaged the selectors by giving the people with seniority easier work that makes their pay grade stay high the won't say nothing because they don't want to mess it up while the new-comers and non-ass kissers get the bad end of the stick. Snitching is at an all time high but what job isn't. And even though you can get to the top pay grade they won't allow you by giving you errors that you or they don't know about but you can't fight it because its their paperwork vs your word . So its very stressful until you get your paycheck other than that, that is why you will stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop showing favoritism give everyone the same opportunity to get their pay grade up without killing themselves everyday slaving while others don't slave.

    Pros

    The company rebranded a year ago and they bring in 25-30 new items every 4 months. They have a lot of literature to show your customers and brokers are always willing to help.

    Cons

    With the new items comes an expectation to sell them. Sometimes you have to force them down people's throats, literally. It's all about cases, they want you to sell more cases but no one seems to care if you have to lose money to do it. The president of the Atlanta Division quit without warning last week. Gave no notice after 25 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sales coverage model was ill conceived.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Management is considerate about creating work/life balance. They will work with you if you need time off and offer you a flexible schedule.

    Cons

    No promotion and pay level is below average of industry. You are usually stuck in your present position if nobody leave company.
