    I have been working at Snyder's-Lance (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability to make a decent profit if S-L “likes” you
    Ownership of own business
    Free Returns on Out of Dates

    Cons

    Chronic Non-payment of wages
    Insensitive and demeaning management at all levels
    No work-life balance whatsoever
    Working for FREE with NO benefits
    IBO status but you have no rights to make business decisions without extreme interference from management
    I am possibly going to lose everything including my route because the managers and the DMs blame the IBO for every problem (including out of stocks at the warehouse)
    DO NOT INVEST, WORK or AFFILIATE with this dishonest company
    They claim to be a 1099 but micromanagement occurs at all levels

    Advice to Management

    Be decent people and care about your IBOs instead of treating them poorly

    Pros

    Some good people work there

    Cons

    Horrible management, HR, and supervisors. They will work you to death. They make and ship bad product. Oil is not recycled. Wrong ingredients are used. Management lies to your face. You report major issues to HR and they never follow up. A lot of drugs and violence. Police brought drug sniffing dogs in. Place is a safety hazard. Management mocks people because of where they live, sexual orientation and race. A lot of shady business goes on here.

    Advice to Management

    You are not too good to help your people out. Learn the jobs in your department. Listen when someone is talking to you.

    I worked at Snyder's-Lance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was amazing, its paid weekly, HR generalist and her assistant are amazing, but only because they've not been corrupted. Benefits are out of this world awesome. And the hours rocked!

    Cons

    They do NOT like outsiders at all. Most people there have been there for a while, and if one person doesn't like you the rest don't. And they will make sure you know it too. There's no training on anything, you're expected to know how to do the job their way. I had a performance review on a Friday, and everything was fine and great. My boss left for vacation, we come back from the holiday weekend and I was pulled into the office said I was not fit for the company and I needed to leave immediately. I attempted to ask for an explanation and was cut short saying it was irrelevant that it was already done and I needed to leave.

    Advice to Management

    When your employees come to you on multiple occasions and tell you somethings not right, you really should listen to them!

    Decision making on any improvement ideas takes too long due to lack of structure

    Advice to Management

    Condense roles and empower the teams to handle
