    Pros

    You work on your own and meet great people .

    Cons

    I left utz for a better opportunity but gave them 2 weeks notice. When i got laid off i ask if i can come back. There was a opening in Cleveland. I was told no.

    Advice to Management

    You should hire back x employees if they did a great job for you in the past and gave you 2 weeks notice before leaving.

    I have been working at Utz Quality Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I make my own schedule - as long as the stores get serviced

    Cons

    Commission based paychecks fluctuate way too much...it all depends if people buy chips that week or not. Stress of owning the business is not worth the pay.

    Hardly any support from management/warehouse. Quite frankly, people just do not do their job at this company. Very misleading statements from management. Say one thing, do another type environment.

    I can't stress enough the complete LACK of support for the employees. Including issues at stores on the route; there isn't any help from management.

    Warehouse hours are restrictive. Sometimes there is someone inside the warehouse, but that doesn't mean they will let you in. Very frustrating.

    No support for vacation time, surgeries, anything like that -- you are on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a management consulting firm to do a complete overhaul of the current system.

    Improve communication between warehouse managers and sales reps.

    I worked at Utz Quality Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Always a tough business, but the company had always been on your side until my last couple of years.

    Cons

    With a change in executive management, the company almost immediately became a company no longer on the side of the employees, but many times treated employees like an enemy. The company preached how they cared for the employees, but really does not. What is currently done for the associates is done only to cover legal requirements. Very disappointing to see a great company make a
    total 180 degree change.

    Advice to Management

    No point for advice as the current executive management are looking to get rid of cost and assets as quickly as possible. Nothing wrong with taking a needed direction, but the dishonesty to the associates is quite unacceptable.

    Pros

    Very kind people and exceptional chips

    Cons

    I have to work 90 hour weeks just to complete my route. It is difficult to access the warehouse before they lock it daily because my route has so many stops. No work life balance. Kiss your life goodbye, but the money is decent. Management is aware we fall asleep at the wheel from long exhausting days yet nothing is done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Unsure how Utz bought Shearer's and the Shearer's management runs everything now. Mean people who love to fire people and write folks up.
