I have been working at E. A. Berg & Sons full-time (More than 5 years)
Great company. Great people, a family atmosphere. Decent starting pay. 9 holidays off. 5 sick days. Starting 1 week vacation. Every person in the company is a decent hard working regular person. Not many with attitudes, but a few. If you can learn HOW to do the job, you'll be fine.
You need to learn how to work the job. Sales are the easy part. Understanding your actual job is the hard part. Raises aren't easy. Health plan is expensive. This job is all about numbers, not sales. Learn how to make the numbers and you'll be good. Resist, do it your way, try to reinvent the wheel and you'll have a hard time here.
Advice to Management
Every DM and field rep needs better training at the beginning. Their should also be interval training. Retrain your field reps once or twice year, but not in the field. Maybe one on one at the office. The DM meetings are great, but the field reps need that type of training too.
I applied online. I interviewed at E. A. Berg & Sons.
Applied for job online, received email from their HR about job specifics and had to fax drivers license info and fill out paper application. Then they scheduled me for a face to face interview with the district manager. So the district manager interviewed me in the field with an actual sales rep on the route at a store. Asked pretty straight forward questions about my experience and background and to see if I was qualified to run a route. Got the job offer two days later.
