    I worked at Herr Foods full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Holidays off, family like atmosphere

    Cons

    HR is nearly impossible to get in touch with when you need them. Pay could be better. Communication amongst supervisors is horrible.

  4. "International sales representative"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Herr Foods

    Pros

    Team members were the best!

    Cons

    Employees are expected to pay up front for all the travel accommodations (including airfare, hotels, and meals), and the reimbursement process is long and complicated. Also, there’s no travel insurance offered for emergencies. Employees are expected to pay for these expenses out of pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Disclose during interview process that part of this position’s requirements is to have a large line of credit in order to fulfill this position.

    Pros

    Managers work hard to insure your success and increase your pay by helping you sell to customers. They value each employee for their unique talents that contribute to the companies success.

    Cons

    Sales is not for everyone. There is a lot of thinking required. You don’t just fill shelves and go home.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Herr Foods full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Weekly pay, benefits, paid time off.

    Cons

    Departments do not work together. The management does not manage academically. Too many supervisors have been in same positions too long. So, nothing changes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to suggestions. Stop favortism . Also, the rules should apply to everyone. The cherry picking here is rampant and blatant.
