    I worked at Variety Wholesalers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers were great, we were like a family. Always working as a team.

    Cons

    Corporate didn't acknowledge dedication given by employees, such as how many years they worked for the company or them being dependable and showing up for work everyday. It was like in their eyes everyone was replaceable. I didn't like that.

    Advice to Management

    If employees show commitment and dedication, take care of them.
