    Pros

    There are many long term employees that have a passion for the business. The company has managed to grow yet keep the family atomosphere.

    Cons

    The company is not progressing with technology and business practices. They fall into "this is how we have always done things". The Executive and Management teams also need to have more effective communication with their teams.

    Pros

    good mothers hours. pay wasn't to bad. majority of people were good to work with. holidays off. job wasn't to hard.

    Cons

    supervisors Do NOT Support you what so ever.. You get treated like a door mat. No Raises or chance to move up in this company. Cut Hours whenever they feel they want to but expect you to do the same amount of work, and when it is Impossible they write you up..

    Advice to Management

    Treat your Merchandisers better after all they are the ones that make YOUR Paycheck... Do not expect to cut hours and for them to do the same amount of work..

    I worked at Imperial Distributors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly friendly, they have incentives such as pizza or sub day (everyone gets lunch for free that day) sometimes they brought in doughnuts, coffee, healthcare rally

    Cons

    They say it's a family atmosphere, but it's not. Employees can be very judgemental

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more - you'd have more happy employees that way

    Pros

    Fellow employees (not management) are nice. You don't see many employees because your out on your route but the few that you do see are nice

    Cons

    Pay is atrocious. No raises. Zero growth opportunities. They have the ability to switch your schedule around with hardly any notice. Management takes the job with the utmost seriousness, like were curing cancer, when all we are doing is stocking shelves! Completely demeaning job. Stay far away unless of course your looking to have a career that goes absolutely NOWHERE!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue on what it is were doing and what it is were getting paid before ordering people to do demeaning tasks like dust shelves.
