I worked at Food Services of America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Reasonable independence within your territory. Quality products...

Cons

My second time working here was a different experience, the founder/owner had passed away and strong leadership is lacking. The culture seemed to change from being a Sales driven company to Marketing & Finance driven company. Employee benefits were not as good as they once were either.

Advice to Management

Go back to focusing on being sales driven, provide sales people with the tools they need including keeping up with technology. District managers need to get out in the field working with reps instead of pushing paper. A simple admin. asst. for a few DM's could free them up to be more in touch with the realities of the marketplace.

    I worked at Food Services of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, great people to work with, very nice office/facilities. Plenty of work and even with 15+ years of admin experience I was always learning something new to boost my skillset.

    Cons

    Management was sometimes invisible, almost seemed like they didn't care. I wasn't really able to identify any real opportunity for advancement (though support positions aren't always so upwardly mobile, anyway...)

    Advice to Management

    Be present and engage with your direct reports!

    "Good experience but did not appreciate the micro management. They became more of a determinant than helpful."

    I worked at Food Services of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company had the right ideas and leadership

    Cons

    Company may have lost sight of how they got to where they are. Area managers have no clue how to manage people.

    Advice to Management

    Forget the micro management. Teach area managers how to manage people not just dollars.
    your sales will come.
