I have been working at Mondelez International full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Being retail there is usually plenty of work and flexible hours so if you need to work on weekends or later in the day you can.

Cons

Schedule changes day to day, upper management sets unrealistic goals, dealing with store personal that treats you poorly, nepotism seems to be encouraged. They seem to have people pre-selected to move up the ladder regardless of their performance.

Advice to Management

Come out in the field more often to see how things really work. Stop allowing relatives to come in to the company and move up quickly.

    Pros

    Company car, gas & insurance are paid by company.
    You sort of are able to make your own schedule.
    Bonuses if whole team meets their monthly, quarterly and yearly numbers.
    Get to try new products a few months before they hit the shelves.
    You're not stuck in a cubicle or office working a 9-5 job.
    New company car after you hit 60,000 miles or every 3 years.
    COMPANY CAR!!!!
    If you work hard and consistently hit your numbers, you will no doubt move up in the company as long as your younger (20-35), willing to re-locate.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Having to deal with angry and disgruntled store managers.
    If anything is wrong, it's always your fault.
    Sometimes it felt like management was asking too much of us for the amount of work they wanted while still wanting us to keep a 8 hour work day.
    Sometimes the part-time help doesn't pull their weight while helping you for the day.
    Seemed like no matter how hard you worked and sold incremental displays, it still wasn't good enough.
    Some DMs can dictate who will and who won't move up in the company regardless of performance.
    ALWAYS ON CALL EVEN IF YOU ARE ON VACATION OR JUST THE WEEKEND.
    LATE TRUCKS = late work day and angry stores because they have no product for upcoming sale.

    Advice to Management

    Give realistic numbers to achieve while also giving reps enough hourly support to help get the job done.

    I worked at Mondelez International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great products that sell themselves

    Cons

    Felt like working in a high school with all the gossip and cliques. Management had their favorites and worked to promote them. If you were not a favorite, you were held back regardless of how well you worked. Management focuses on their advancement, not helping others advance.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. Management in Wilkes-Barre needs to step out of their offices more and see what it happening on the floor. They should learn the day to day business and what has changes to they can help their employees. HR needs to offer more classes to management and employees. They all need to listen to the employees more. The lack of turn over in Wilkes-Barre is due to the lack of decent employment in the area, no due to the happiness of the employees/
