Pros

The money was ok, a certain supervisor was nice to me. The products they carried were pretty easy to sell.

Cons

They change the rules for daily job routine every week it seemed. The hours are bad my hours there were 3am-1pm or later. No 2 days off in a row you get wednesday and sunday off. Everything that went wrong there seemed to be the saleman's fault upper managment didn't seem they did anything wrong. You drive vehicles that are more than 20 years old with no heat in the winter no air conditioning in the summer and all the maintainance issues you can think of.

Advice to Management

Know that the salespeople are the back bone of your company and not the problem all the time. You need to get them better equipment to work with like trucks, handheld computers, and carts to carry the products in and out of the stores.

    Pros

    You have a job. Stay away from here!!!

    Cons

    Poor treatment, they look for ways to fire people, lack of safety, management is treated poorly and it rolls down hill. Lack value and only care about volume not quality. Very high turn over rate!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get into thus century with how you treat employees, support your supervisors and get them training. Cooperate needs to visit plants and talk to employees in private conversations!
