    I worked at Glazer's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was fortunate that I had a manager that really trusted me and did not micromanaged. You are told what is expected from you from day one. There is a lot of learning and a lot of driving. Company has several events for you to interact with co workers and clients. It is a fun and rewarding environment

    Cons

    You drive a lot - clients can be unreasonable. Wasn't much opportunity for me to move up in my career.

    I worked at Glazer's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun industry, diverse job duties including sales, operations, and administration. Solid team was in place.

    Cons

    More decision making needs to be pushed to the market level. All personnel need to report to the GM if that person is held accountable for the business

    Advice to Management

    Be open and honest with employees. Give the employees honest feedback on how they improve. Allow field personnel to make decisions - train them on decision making and push down the decisions so action can be taken at the market level.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, mileage, great 401k and benefits

    Cons

    Management was TERRIBLE. I still haven't gotten money that I am owed from my last month there. All anyone cares about is themselves that works with you or above you. No work life balance. All work, no life.

    Advice to Management

    Being arrogant and not caring about your employees will get you nowhere.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Good pay. They take care of employees. Good benefits. Room to grow. Overall great company

    Cons

    Politics between plants get in the way of working more efficient.
    Set in their ways on certain things b/c they have been doing it the same way for so long. Should be more flexible on industry best practices and bring in people with that expertise and listen to them.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to doing things differently.

    Pros

    4-day work week (Tues - Fri); 8-10 hour days on average. Union Teamsters (which isn't necessarily always a pro)

    Cons

    A lot of politics involved. Some guys work fewer hours a week and make from $45,000 to $55,000 while others may work an extra 10-15 hours and make about $35,000-$40,000.

    Advice to Management

    Pay drivers better for their hard work.
