    Cons

    Work life vs Personal life, Management speaks out of both sides of mouth, they preach work, life , balance but at the same time work is always the priority. Your only true day off is Saturday, don't kid your self you work sunday's! These Managers love to hear themselves talk. Meeting every Friday going over all the wrongs your doing in the field and then a GSM Meeting at the local OPCO usually a few hours drive to go over whatever new worthless items your will have to push on your clients. Lastly last weeks numbers are history, if you did great last week you can easily be the scape goat this week. Pay is OK but does not equal the amount of work you will put out. You will be at the will of you clients and they are demanding and petty. Asking for PTO is like pulling teeth from these managers, and yes you will work every holiday! Pay is around $51,500 they way to above is to sell more than your salary and you will never have a set salary one year it migh be $65k next year your back to the base of 51k. You are at the will of your clients, this is a nickel and dime business your clients will stop buying from you for a simple reason as Eggs going up by 5 cents this week. If this in anyway does not sound like your cup of tee.... keep looking.

    Advice to Management

    All you Regional, District Sales managers etc.. You sell groceries your are not selling nuclear fission. "KISS" Keep it simple stupids! Respect the time and personal time of your marketing associate and you guys are not Tony Robbins with these ridiculous speeches that probably take you hours to come up with. Your want to motivate people, show them you care! mind blowing huh?
