Set min order quantities and enforce them too many miles chasing not enough dollars

    I worked at Market Day Corporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff at the home office, predictable schedule.

    Cons

    Expected to attend many meeting and drive long distances to accounts for no compensation for time or travel. Encouraged to drive sales, but no real sales aids provided. Sales numbers are based on customer orders, which is obviously economy driven since the products are groceries. Working with volunteers at accounts, who often aren't flexible with company requests. Accounts are not assigned by your geographical area, often I was driving 45 minutes to get to small accounts. Sales managers have good intentions, but are spread too thin and cannot keep up with requests or questions, I have never witnessed turn over as high as I saw with sales managers at Market Day.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation needs to be more based on hours worked. The base pay needs to be adjusted, after taxes it is pretty pitiful. Even the most well scheduled sale takes at least 3 hours from drop off to conclusion of the sale, based on the company dictated truck time and early arrival time of the salesperson and staying until the last order is paid for. A base compensation is fine, but for the additional planning and sales meetings that were encouraged, there needs to be a reimbursement for mileage and time. The company is a unique company with potential, but employees are not valued based on hour requirements and minimal compensation.
