    Pros

    Pay is alright, benefits are good. Coworkers are great!

    Cons

    Too many to list, typical warehouse politics. Values say one thing, actions do another. No responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Step up your safety and food safety game. You're falling way behind the industry. Stop outsourcing the support and give it back to people in the states. Hold ALL people accountable for their actions, not just a select few and turn your head on the others because of their positions.

    Great co-workers, close to my home and the benefits are nice

    Cons

    My manager had no no experience in management. She did not know how to supervise employees. She needed a lot of training on how to pull the best out of her employees.

    Advice to Management

    When promoting an employee to a management position make sure you provide the needed training

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential. Able to open new accounts where commissions are earned based on sale growth and new business. Uses Sales Force CRM to track plans, pipelines, goals and prospects. Full commission position with a small base pay and guaranteed floor payment.

    Cons

    Extremely competitive market. Many things are out of the MA's control such as out of stock items, late deliveries, and customer credit lines. Customer loyalty is always tested since the competition is always knocking on the customer's door offering better pricing and incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. Most managers have been MA's previously and know what its like to pound the pavement. Always there to help with problem accounts and lost business.
