    I worked at DS Waters of America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, Vacation, 401K plan, OK pay once at top commission rate

    Cons

    High turnover rate for Route Operations and Sales positions. Poor managment at field level due to constant churn of employees and lack of training. Poor entry level pay and long hours. 12-15 hours per day is not uncommon for new hires. Senior managers are afraid of their own shadow as many have either been downsized or reassigned to other useless positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior managers from the Regional Manager level to CEO are not in tune with the frontline staff. They spend countless hours focusing on cost cutting measures and finding ways to squeeze more EBITDA out of a declining water sales trends and selling low margined products that nobody wants. Pressure to sell these useless items has forced many employees to cut corners to avoid the wrath at check-in.

    The company continues to suffer with the lack of basic necessities for the route drivers and sales teams to be successful.
    1. No bottles for our customers due to poor CAPEX planning
    2. No water coolers to fill new customer orders. Some COSTCO customers have to wait a month to get started.
    3. Bad equipment and trucks
    4. No spare vehicles

    CEO is feared as many managers have been downsized or or reassigned causing the company to always be afraid.
