    I worked at Herr Foods full-time

    Pros

    I was in Route Sales For more than a year. The Management was awesome and very supportive overall. Pay I would say is decent and fair. Whenever I had a question someone was there to answer. The training is excellent on everything!

    Cons

    Really long hours. Hard to have less than a 60 hour work week. There's too many meetings. Some of them are great and some just waste our time.

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

    Pros

    This company has been in business for well over 60 years. They continue to employ over 1500 people who's paychecks don't bounce. They provide retirement funds; medical, dental and vision benefits; wellness programs; just to name a few. It is a family owned and operated business built on Christian values by one man who had a vision and a dream for himself that blossomed into a vision and a dream for many others' successful lives. The people employed here are good people. The bad ones are beginning to be weeded out.

    Cons

    Working here can be challenging at times, but what job isn't? The company is not as profitable as they would have hoped to have been this year but again, what company is? At times, the company is "slow" to change in regards to products, marketing, advertising, etc. But 'slowly' that is starting to change. There is always room for improvement in ourselves and in the business. One of the biggest "Cons" that is happening now with the company is that there are some people who have been here for a long time (10+ years) who are unhappy with the changes that the company is making. They are content with how things have been done in the past and don't like that the new generation of Upper Management are changing things. So, no, you cannot get away with taking a 25 minute paid break when you are supposed to get 15 minutes, and no, you cannot just stand around on the clock as you could have gotten away with in the past. You have to actually "work" for your money while on the clock now. For the RSP's, I get it, your job is not easy. You work really long hours. You deal with the elements and unfortunately you deal with the stuff that rolls downhill to you. But you should know that a lot of what rolls down to you gets lost in translation. Like whisper down the lane. You are not given all of the info and you end up with a bad taste in your mouth for upper management. If you have questions, ASK instead of complaining to all the wrong people. All that does is lower morale and make your work conditions worse. You have the ability to make as much money as you'd like seeing as you are primarily paid on commission, if you don't have the tools you need from the company to make that happen, speak up. It may come as a surprise to some, but Upper Management does actually care about you, your families and your quality of life. The company cannot pay you more money if the company is not making more money. You can't spend what you don't have. Times are rough economically across the board, you're not the only ones. If you're unhappy or need more money to support yourself and family, you should probably look elsewhere for employment, you didn't sign a contract. They are not "gunning" for you personally, their jobs are to evaluate the company as a whole. If something isn't working it needs to be fixed. They are good people, but they are having to make difficult decisions. It's not personal, it's business.

    I have been working at Herr Foods full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    All management has been promoted from within so they've walked in your shoes. All in all not a bad company- it shows with all the people who have worked there 10,20 or 30 plus years.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours for new employees. They get better with experience.

    I worked at Herr Foods full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co workers are helpful and friendly

    Cons

    Hours are ridiculous Trucks are ice cold and probably an oven in the summer. End of day is annoying Dealing with the store receivers is a joke. You're not 'selling' anything , you're driving and delivering, period. You better come back smiling and happy as a clam after being on the road for 10,11,12 hours or you'll be called in for a meeting. A certain DM who knows it all. Be prepared to have your temperature taken every day. The pay and the amount of time you work and commute is criminal. The training in PA is nothing but brainwashing pure and simple. Claim to be a Christian company yet the hours they want leaves no time for your family, or anything else for that matter. I wouldn't recommend this job to my worst enemy. If you want to work long hours, have no life and earn peanuts then apply. Also the hiring process is more lengthy and intensive than a job with the CIA. Prepare for 4 interviews and a ride along before you're granted employment.
