    Pros

    If you have good team leaders and managers then the job will be more pleasant to do

    Cons

    If you get stuck with bad team leaders and managers they can screw you over causing the job to be even more difficult
    Had a completely useless store manager who didn't know anything

    Advice to Management

    Pay better attention to who is hired as team leaders and managers
    One team leader doesn't do any work and creates messes then forces a sales associate to clean it up

    I worked at Gordon Food Service full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really enjoyed the team i worked on. Manager was super helpful and an overall great guy

    Cons

    Pay was too far below industry standard to make staying feasible.

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoyed the people i worked with which was the reason I stayed as long as I did. However when I, or i'm sure most of your employees, can get nearly double working at other firms I cant justify staying.

    Look into what area employers are paying their developers and try to put yourself in the ballpark.

    Great job in keeping a fun and productive work environment
