Does Mars offer life insurance?

Pros

The pay and benefits are good. Company vehicle with fuel card included. Health benefits, including dental, vision, and life insurance also included. 401k matching and pension too.

Cons

Get ready to work like a dog. You might be at a Kroger, Hy-Vee or Walmart and you will have to work 30-50 pound cases for an hour and a half. Some managers, especially in Walmart treat you awful. There are also seasons like Halloween or Christmas where you are expected to work long hours even on weekends and taking vacation days are frowned upon. There is no open dialogue. Do what you are told and keep your opinions to yourself. Otherwise you are not being a team player. Some territories are so huge that you might have to do overnight travel. There can be favoritism at times. You will see some folk get to try 2-3 different positions and you’re still “valued labor” for some stores. You also don’t get any personal fulfillment from the job. You are just moving cases around with other store employees who could care less if you were there or not. Once you get out of field sales it is like you are in a different world. Everyone is kind to you. People are intentional on integrating you to their teams. Some can even take their pets to work sometimes. Territory Sales Managers are the black sheep’s of the org. It’s really sad. Met some talented people and many were let go after the restructuring. Sone with 15 or even 30 years in.

Advice to Management

Your sales reps are the face of the company outside of your cozy offices. Treat them better. At least offer them candy to take home again.

Health benefits, including dental, vision, and life insurance also included.
