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

Pros

Awesome, fun managers let you do your thing as long as your numbers are where they need to be.
In Outside Sales, you can basically make as much money as you want. The harder you work, the more you make!

Cons

Credit department has very strict parameters to work in. Often not customer friendly and can take this power to higher levels than needed.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the guiding principals. Do not manipulate for your personal agenda.

    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!
