      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Vistar Corporation full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good work/life balance. Flexible hours.

      Cons

      Upper management doesn’t know how to treat ANY employee who doesn’t have an office. People “in power” are allowed to treat others any way they want with no consequence. Unable to go to HR with any concerns unless you’re prepared to pack up your things and be walked out. This could be a really strong company to work for but the people in management should not be managing people.

      Advice to Management

      Require management courses or hire qualified people.

        Cons

        management plays "favorites" and does not listen to complaints

        Advice to Management

        stop playing favorites. If someone repeatedly complains about a coworker than listen and ACT! Do not let them continue to get away with not doing their job and doing nothing to help another coworker when they clearly have the time available to help.
