    I have been working at C&S Wholesale Grocers (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. work hard and get paid extra for it,(incentive)

    Cons

    cold,really hard work,not to much room for advancement and do not cross train much. No incentive to make a career out of Selecting. someone walking in the door can make the same much as someone who has been there for 5 to 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    give out raises. incentivize employees for staying long term. reward employees for the years of employment

    I have been working at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can make money since the pay is incentive based. You can take a break whenever you want(at least in the freezer).

    Cons

    In the freezer its -20 degrees. The base pay could be more. Management doesn't really care if your sick or not feeling well. have to wait a whole year before you get leave.

    I worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Its a job and it will give you experience with an EHS program with in a large corporation. Most of the talent that comes through does not stay. This true on the Oprations side as well.

    Cons

    You are responsible for reducing injury rates and it makes no difference that the operations side will actively undermine the safety program. The reduction of injury costs are the only focus and most of the other EHS responsibilities are seen as a waste of time
