    I worked at Fikes Wholesale for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A great place to work. I was there 3 yrs. The owners are on-hands and really care for their Employees.

    Cons

    There a few middle management folks that I am sure take the owners kindness and fire at will for no reason given.

    Advice to Management

    There are sharks in the waters. I would reevaluate the unethical business practices some are getting away with.

    I worked at Fikes Wholesale full-time

    Pros

    Has some good things that I havent experienced anywhere else, Gives quarterly raises, Gave me a giftcard during Xmas, Pays for fuel, be your own boss and make your own hours

    Cons

    Only pays to $100 on fuel, lots of driving monthly, Your expected to pick up sales, service accounts and keep a relationship at $10/hour doesnt really cut it. Boss doesnt live in the area he commutes back and forth from Spokane. You get blamed for accounts that cancel. Bunch of BS!!! Their cleaning equipment is sub par so when its it clean in the time allowed you catch alot of flack from management.

    Advice to Management

    Get better equipment if you expect to charge 2-3K on a cleaning. Alot of accounts complained about the high turnover here. Cant expect to keep accounts if you cant even to hold on to employees. Get Company vehicles!!!

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Fikes Wholesale full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people. Opportunity to make an impact in the convenience stores - execution, sales growth, development of people and performance.

    Cons

    Need to use more external metrics and feedback systems for decision making and measurement - especially related to customer research, customer satisfaction, and loyalty. Also, need to work on the employee experience (especially at store and field management levels).
