    Pros

    Newly Weds Foods provides great pay and wonderful benefits. You will also get an end of year bonus. Plus, you could possibly receive another bonus based on sales.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth here. Do not come here if you are expecting to be engaged and used to your full potential.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your sales representatives how to communicate with their customer service representatives. It's a shame that you work so hard for people that won't speak and barely know your name.
