    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.

    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.

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

    I worked at Glazer's (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with my team and the people at the branch
    Can be a fun industry
    Car allowance and pretty good benefits

    Cons

    Upper level management have a hard time adhering to HR policies, put employees in bad situations (some physically assaulted by retailers). Will speak poorly about employees often, and in public

    Very aggressive goals and demands without much help to attain them

    Culture of trying to cut the bottom performing sales reps even if they are not performing poorly, a great deal of it has to do with whether or not you are a yes person to the people in charge

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, try to adhere to most HR regulations rather than ignore them
    You speak to Family Values but you do not practice it

    Great benefits, Great pay. You will always have new and working equipment.

    Short staff, slow to hire new staff, local branch little tight on spending money not like other branches.

    Advice to Management

    Get out from behind your desk. Your decisions may look good on paper but that doesn't mean that it will necessarily work. It's called a CDL- Commercial Drivers Licence not
    Commercial Desk Licence!
