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

    Pros

    Decent pay, never bored. Some people are great!

    Cons

    Ever changing priorities. Sr leadership never backs up what they say to support their asks. Future is questionable right now. Pressure on lower people, treat them like work horses. Expect more with less people. It can be grueling.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking away people when finances are tight. You can’t expect better performance by running people thin. You are exhausting everyone and they are all frustrated. Invest in people to be successful. Actually follow your new pillars of success.

    I worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people on the front lines

    Cons

    Where to begin? Less than cost of living pay raises, senior leaders denying employees promotions for self serving reasons, unqualified people getting promoted because they don’t want to lose the good workers, such infrequent holidays off, crappy benefits packages. The worst part is the lack of communication from senior leaders down. They can hold employees captive and they have so much leverage to make unethical decisions surrounding employee treatment because Keene has so few companies and job opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at employee morale and really dig deep to try to drive improvements or you’ll keep seeing high turnover.
