    Spend a lot of times kneeling on the ground and it can make you a bit sore at the end of a long day.

    Pros

    Flexible Hours
    Decent Pay for Entry level part timer

    Cons

    Becomes extremely tedious after a while
    No room for promotions unless you work insanely fast

    Advice to Management

    Great management. There's no real advice for management to give other than to keep everyone preferably in their local area

    Pros

    You choose your own start time, as long as it's early. Nobody is hovering over you. You figure out ways to do your job best in the stores assigned to you, because no two stores are alike and each store changes frequently. Store employees are usually friendly. You get a sense of satisfaction after spending a short amount of time in a store and seeing how much improvement you can make in the shopper's experience.

    Cons

    You're treated like a lone wolf out there on the edge of the wilderness. Nobody communicates with you. Store backrooms can be very difficult to maneuver. Most retail employees are not going to make your job easier. You have to figure things out and work around a LOT of obstacles and people. You don't get feedback or any ongoing coaching. You have to make a lot of noise to get attention to a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Teach managers of merchandisers to communicate with their direct reports and to communicate more frequently.

    I worked at Mondelez International full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, compensation same as similar food companies.

    Cons

    Extremely poor corporate and upper management. Integrated Lean Six Sigma program managed by people who are not in tune with the reality of operations ie. they just want to see the numbers they dictate! No rewards for good job done - no lunches, trips, extracurricular activities. Very boring/dead environment! No appreciation by upper management either! Unless you want to die 10 years earlier, I wouldn't recommend this organization!

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school and learn what motivates people! Learn how to create good relationship with your employees, customers and contractors. Treat people with respect. Everything Mondelez management (plant managers to corporate managers) are in contrary to modern techniques and skills of people leadership. You treat people as just numbers - they are not!

    I worked at Mondelez International part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Little to no supervision, easy work, flexible for part time employees.

    Cons

    Constant messages from sales rep regarding instructions. No stability to the culture leading to abuse of employees who actually show up to work. No notification of work schedule or assignments until late the night before. Supervisors trying to change your schedule in the middle of the week. Seriously the culture is so bad that even the supervisory positions have clueless people who continue to be employed because no one wants their job. This leads to dissatisfaction among the lower level employees who just get shat on.

    Advice to Management

    The entire company needs to rethink it's operation. If you're going to continue to use merchandisers and sales reps, give them some incentive to keep working there. It's a revolving door because everything just stinks to high heaven.

    Pros

    Can be an easy job and make it work if that’s your interest path.

    Cons

    Over time the business direction became less clear and toxic. Bad decisions made frequently, very poor infrastructure, doesn’t do what they should to be competitive, lacking in resources, and pay is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Invest. Stay competitive in different ways. Listen to the people in the field and apply their advice. Get it together. Hold people accountable. Motivate employees. Make better business decisions from the top to the bottom. Promote the best and most qualified

    Easy to work with. Don't seem to have many issues with anything that comes up.
