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

    Pros

    Great place to work if you like fast paced environment. And staking merchandise on to pallets by hand up to more than five feet in the air. And like being a number and love being super-hot or super-cold.

    Cons

    No life work balance they only work at Night. And no AC nor enough fans to cool the building down for the order Selector. The pay is awful, they force Employees to compete against echo there for raise and incentive’s, they literally work you to death.

    I worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Co workers
    Always busy
    Offered unlimited overtime
    Interesting work

    Cons

    Managers tough
    Some managers take advantage of employees needing to work by not offering room for development, promotion, advancement but demanding unrealistic goals with no raises, little time off, working employees into the ground

    Advice to Management

    They should set realistic expectations, work hard to offer some additional raises if they hit higher tier of performance & invest in their employees future by spending time with them to collaborate the development of excellence
    This will bring in a stronger bottom line of loyalty and will up their profit margin s beyond what they realize is possible
