    I have been working at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great communication and open door policy with management, wonderful leaders in place, strong team building, supportive management, opportunity for career advancement as well as career relocation, not a lot of employee turnover - strong retention, management continuing to improve in the workplace with suggestions from employees, C&S encourages employee growth and development, and the company is very involved with... the community as well as charities.

    Cons

    It can be stressful at times, and there seems to always be a strong sense of urgency but you are supported by your management - and you're supported by your team. So although stress is a con to this job, you're always backed by your coworkers and everyone is always willing to jump in and help when you need assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting work life balance and encouraging people to utilize their work from home days, and encouraging them to take their lunch to step away from their desk - this is noticed, and appreciated. Continue to keep on motivating us to take walks outside, and to take time away from our desk during the workday.

    I worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Never a dull moment, weekly pay for most positions including salaried ones. Room for advancement if you don't mind working 50-60 hours a week and putting in your time.

    Cons

    As stated above the work/life balance at C&S is brutal. You will be at your office or in the warehouse for 10+ hours everyday. Even leaving on time was frowned upon. Vacation policy is terrible, only 10 days for first FIVE years. No bonuses outside of Director level, and no holidays observed except for Thanksgiving/Christmas. Very poor training.

    Advice to Management

    Make PTO 15 days for salaried employees coming in. Improve the training process.

    Pros

    Coming into C&S as a selector you have the potential to make big money. With the new programs that are in place you can be making $20+/hr. Also within C&S you have the opportunities to build a strong career.

    Cons

    Hard Work=Great Rewards Florida is HOT!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Always encourage and guide your team members to strive for more

    I worked at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Hard-working co-workers, an established and smart CEO, and opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    As many others have already stated, the work-life balance is one of the biggest issues at C&S. Coupled with that, this is a company where you will work longer hours and get paid less compared to other companies with the same positions. The majority of upper management has been in place for quite some time and although change is a focus for some, it does not happen quick enough as I have seen many hard-working and... great professionals leave this company and I anticipate this will continue to happen. Another area to point out for anyone looking to join this company is that communication is extremely poor. A large portion of the news is heard by 'word of mouth' and not from the top down like it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your people. Listen to all of your co-workers and not just as certain levels. Do not hide information that should be known to your employees.

    Pros

    You will meet claims cool ppl.

    Cons

    Ever since bilo warehouse beca be C&S wholesaler, the who job has been at a decline. Less hours. Less pay. Work faster. I'd never go back there & is never recommend it. Especially not to work in the HBC building. Managers there are disrespectful & extremely unfair. The system has way too many errors & they never correct your time until it's too late.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to your workers. We're not their to be your friends. Just work.

    I have been working at C&S Wholesale Grocers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good opportunity for relocation, lots of jobs

    Cons

    Poor work life balance, Pay not commensurate to the hours you will spend working, no accountability within company, horrible health insurance (try a 5k deductible for a husband and wife) , and just a generally negative culture, partially due to the management's "how high" response to any and all last minute customer requests. I would highly recommend you look elsewhere for a job if at all possible, at least on a... salaried basis. Work-life balance does not exist in C&S.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and actually try and implement the efficiency and innovation you claim to want to inspire, instead of using them as lame buzzwords on conference calls with no actual backing.

    Pros

    Many good people work for the company.

    Cons

    The company "Grocers Supply" was bought out by C&S Wholesale with promises to keep all employees and jobs in tacked. Within a year massive lay offs. Very sad place now to work. No good direction from Management.

    Pros

    Overtime available during busy season.

    Cons

    Pay is very low for the amount of responsibility. While it can be easy to advance with hard work, the added responsibilities are not properly compensated. C&S is a huge corporation that does not value their employees. Avoid this hell hole at all cost!
