    Current Employee - Route Sales Representative in Waterloo, IA
    Current Employee - Route Sales Representative in Waterloo, IA
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is good, benefits very good, diversity in accounts, spend most of workday away from management out on route. Day goes by fast.

    Cons

    Management by fear. The G.M and A.G.M. put otherwordly pressure on D.M. and route reps to achieve goals that only the top markets can realistically achieve. Leads to a feeling of hopelessness to succeed. Constant negativity from said management creates culture of failure leaving R.S.R. primarily focused on staying off bottom of performance matricites. Employee builds absolutely zero equity with company. If you struggle for even a quarter you lose your job. Zero chance of advancement in branch locations, available positions not even made known. Company is simply unethical with loss and ruin and price increases and leave R.S.R out to dry for it. Aramark will throw R.S.R under the bus whenever any large account shows discontent. G.M. quoted by mid management as saying "we can always find a way to blame the route rep".

    Advice to Management

    All they ever preach is how important the r.s.r is to growing the company but yet never stop with extra duties unrelated to that goal. Such as micro paperwork proving our sales activity, long check ins with D.M.'s that achieve nothing and having us sort laundry... All for $35 dollars an hour.
