    I worked at Sara Lee full-time

    Pros

    In een informele sfeer met vooral professionele mensen met hart voor de zaak heb ik hier een bijzonder mooie tijd gehad. Erg mooi om te zien hoe we 'samen' het bedrijf nóg beter hebben gemaakt

    Cons

    Reisafstand, dit was voor mij persoonlijk ook de reden om te stoppen bij SL. Wel erg jammer, aangezien het een mooi bedrijf is om voor te werken.

    Wat ze wel mogen aanpassen zijn de in- en uitkloksystemen.

    Advice to Management

    Hier heb ik geen adviezen. Men pakt alles proffesioneel op en laat de mensen in hun waarde. De leidinggevend zijn betrokken bij hun medewerkers

    I worked at Sara Lee full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you're the type of person who like to travel throughout the day, this is that sort of job.
    You're going to multiple stores per day to merchandise (put bread on shelves, deliver bread, etc).

    Cons

    Many of the independent owners rarely get sleep. This job requires a lot out of you. No balance between work and regular life.

    Advice to Management

    I advise that the management choose to
