This company was easy to work with. Their rate of pay and re-emburstments were fair. The other members of the crew were helpful as were the supervisors. The hardest part of the job was removing stubborn shelves. I enjoyed going to the differant stores to work.
Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 26, 2015
Different positions available. You'll typically visit anywhere from 3 to 7 grocery stores in a day. Stocking shelves and helping management. Your job may involve resetting an isle (such as cookie and crackers, the pet, or laundry isle) and working on a team of 5 reps removing out of code/discontinued items and replacing with newer product or moving things around.
The hardest part is you'll be on your feet often and stocking shelves and you'll put a lot of mileage on your car in a month (around 1500 to 2000). Although you do have an area manager you have a lot of freedom with your work. You set your schedule.
freedom and flexible schedule, not in an office, not stuck in one place all day, different types of positions available
TM c-stores (Current Employee) – savannah, ga – October 23, 2015
Job description from corp. not what is actually required in the field. Red tape and mico-managed at every point in ones day. Your tablet will monitor EVERY activity you do during the day and will send an alert to your manager if you are late or early to a store and any unscheduled stop you might take during your day on the route. Would not take this job if I had to do over again.
they use latest technology to micro manage your day.
Company allows you to make your own schedule and be able to accommodate work-life balance situations. Managers make sure that the job is fair and that you are treated fairly. When help is needed they are more than happy to accommodate.
Business Manager Assistant (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – October 13, 2015
I love coming to work each day. My boss is incredible and treats me with respect. The company offers many different incentives including a bonus tracker for being healthy, free flu shots, nice working spaces and competitive salary.
I enjoyed my jobs with Acosta. The flexibility with scheduling is great, but there was not enough hours work. My last position with Acosta was terminated and consolidated with another employees job, and because I lived further away than the other employee, I was let go. I am thankful for the time with Acosta, I met a lot of great people and enjoyed my job tremendously.
My typical day is always joyful day because I am a people person so I get to meet and help a lot of customers with any needs and questions that may have with the store products and still get my work finished on time.Management is awesome at all the different stores that i work from,always kind and very helpful with anything that i may need to complete my job.My co-workers a really great everyone pitches in and we all make sure that if anyone needs help with their job we do our very best to help get that job done and done correctly, just a really great team. I think the hardest part about this job is having to move shelves up or down because sometimes they do not fit correctly and you have to make sure that they are locked in place to make sure they do not happen to fall on a customer or a employee.
I work my tail off for very little compensation, yes the amount of vacation time we get is nice but I would rather have less vacation and more pay to support my family. I usually start my day with a long list of work and by the end of the day it is doubled if not tripled in size. They like to hire family members of higher ups for the smaller positions, it keeps biting them in the rear but they don't seem to get it. These people are ridiculous.
The work environment was fast paced with a broad base of companies. The work load was divided into teams so that the work could be completed by anyone on that team. There was the end of month crunch to complete all the accounts. There was also quarterly accounts completed. The systems were 90% online making the work accurate and easy to balance. It was a fun work environment to work in. The leads kept the teams engaged with trivia and games.
As with most large companies, your department and management can make or break your views of the company. Overall the company is great to work for, employee friendly, great benefits good opportunities to network within the CPG retail space.
