      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Snyder's-Lance full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Paychecks came in when expected

      Cons

      You are not your own. Be prepared to give up your weekends simply because of a ruined truckload of potatoes or because of poor shipping scheduling by management

      Advice to Management

      It is not your associates' responsibilities to pick up the slack and ensure you don't get a rough talking to from your boss because you messed up.

      Pros

      Established Company Decent Pay Convenient location Tasty products

      Cons

      People are promoted based on loyalty and how long they've been with the company. Merit, ideas, and innovation are not appreciated.

      Advice to Management

      Ditch Rick and Carl and all of the "good old boys" at the top

      I have been working at Snyder's-Lance full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Amount of days off Vacation after 3 months Cool Supervisors

      Cons

      Gets slow and you lose hours management doesn't know what they are doing Force you to switch shifts without any regard of you personal life The man Human resource person is useless. Doesn't help you in any way. Tells you you have to quit instead of helping your situation

      Advice to Management

      Hire better people that'll actually help in HR. Hire people that know what they are doing. tell the lead men on the dock that they need to be working too and not sitting in the office for 11 hours of a 12 hour shift.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Snyder's-Lance full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There are no pros to working here

      Cons

      Sexual harassment is horrible there, supervisors have no clue what they're doing and make up their own rules, you don't find out until right when you're about to clock out if you have to stay over or night, the drama is worse than high school

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees, stop being last minute, treat your employees with more respect

      Current Employee - IBO in Kennebunkport, ME

      I have been working at Snyder's-Lance full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      It all sells itself. Just order the product and hit a few stores. Go in when you want, but for summer, have to be in early.

      Cons

      Up early in summer, in at 3AM Some big stores could be better managed by the ibo picking the products.

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Snyder's-Lance full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Independent work and met a lot of nice people at the stores I serviced

      Cons

      You’re an independent contractor, so you receive no benefits, no help from the company, and low pay. After paying expenses to run your “business” you might bring home $400-$500 wk working 60-70 hours. Any other route sales position at another company you would take home at least $1000 and work less hours.

      Advice to Management

      Get rid of the IBO program and pay route drivers a competitive salary. Stop scamming people into purchasing routes. I encourage anyone considering purchasing a route should google “Snyder’s lance wage law suit”

      Doesn't Recommend
      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Snyder's-Lance full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Good Pay Structure and Great people in middle management. Great Products and brands that have been successful for years

      Cons

      Handled termination of 250+ employees in an unprofessional manner. Group conference call used with little regard for the people effected. Merger with Campbell's Soup Company cut livelihoods of 250+ employees and increased stress levels for all who remained due to doubling the work load for those that were chosen to remain.

      Advice to Management

      Next time get rid of a few Vice Presidents and keep the people that actually work.
