Forget your personal life

Route Sales (Former Employee)

ProsDecent pay and good benefits. Upper management was supportive and personable.

ConsTypical day began around 4 am and ended around 3-4 pm. The pay is ok but when you consider the amount of hours put in it doesn't look so good.

Many of the other employees were nearing retirement and they looked beat up and broken from so many years of physial labor and long hours. May be a good job for a few years but not for a life long career.

When you are out on the road you are all alone. The trucks are old and very cold or hot depending on the time of year. Many of the receivers have no patients and look down upon you.

It can be difficult to figure out your order for the coming week let alone the coming month.

Deliveries should only be made 4 days a week. Most of the times, Fridays and Saturdays, the shelves were stocked and little needed to be put out. This resulted in a day where you were basically driving around for 9 hours straigtening shelves. For a week as long as it is, one more day off would be great.

Advice to Senior ManagementNew trucks are needed, and they should be equipped with radios. (it gets boring on the road)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    All training is on-the-job, and most open positions are given to external candidates.
