Pros

Being able to work directly with the public.

Cons

They Downsized. Closed all the Indiana and Michigan branches and put a lot of families in bad situations.

Advice to Management

I really loved working for this company but to do what was done to all of us in Indiana,Michigan and to the transport drivers who delivered to our area I feel was un excusable.I talked to quite a few people who were around during previous administrations. Everyone of them would say back in the day you wouldn't have seen what you see today.The previous generations of leadership would not approve of the way things are today.The Elkhart branch was in business 55 + years . I know times are tough,but looking at a map.It is farther to go to Cleveland than to Elkhart from Lima,which is where the majority of our trucks came from. I'm sorry but I would not want to be in your shoes when someday you will meet your previous generations and you explain to them how you destroyed what they built. You should have continued your Great Great Grandfathers dream. He started this company not you. You should have started your own company if that was your dream. My advise is to go back and see what the founders of this companies dream was.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    great benefits, good pay, products are good and priced right so they are an easy sell. resturant pricing is the best managment will help get knew accounts

    Cons

    the union makes it hard for the hard working less seniority people to not get layed off in slow times, and they keep the higher seniority less caring go through the motion guys working all year

    Advice to Management

    push for the removal of the union, it would be better for the company and the employees. it would help drop the wall between management and salesman
