Good pay, but very demanding
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Burlington, IAApril 7, 2015
Pros: Good pay, flexible hours
Cons: holidays, management
I've found that I had enjoyed my merchandiser job, until a new manager was hired and it seems that I am overlooked and treated poorly. It seems the men that are employed with the company get top priority, while I as a woman, do not. I am also a scapegoat for those who don't do their job properly, so it's easier to blame the merchandiser.

No balance/bad management
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Salisbury, MDApril 4, 2015
Pros: Only the pay and benefits
Cons: Long hours, management by intimidation, sleep deprivation causes injuries, Job has ruined lives and marriages
As an RSR you start somewhere between 2 and 4 am. Load the truck and on a good day you may get done by noon. Your days off are Weds and Sunday but you will often be forced to work and do merchandising runs on those days. Management cuts routes and combines them to make the days longer and avoid paying as many drivers. I have heard that other depots are not this bad but the Salisbury Md. location certainly is.

working wit good people in a fast paced enviroment.
Production Supervisor (Current Employee), Albany, NYFebruary 26, 2015
Pros: lots of oppertunity for training.
Cons: not a lot a room for advancement
A typical day at work is fast paced.
I have learned numerous skills related to the food industry.
I have worked with the present management since I was hired and are strong managers.
I work with a lot of good people who care about doing a good job.
The hardest part of the job is the lack of quality of life with the family.
The most enjoyable part of the job is creating a new product and watching it grow.

A place where I would invite anyone to come and work! Very caring Place
Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee), Reading, PAFebruary 21, 2015
Pros: free bread
Cons: bad weather
Start at 6am, pre trip tractor, go to the bakery and get paper work. go get your trailer and pre trip unit. Pray, go to Williamsport, Pa. Drop hook, post and pre trip unit, back to Reading. Drop hook, get paper work, do your pre trip, go to Easton, Pa.Come back to Reading.

I learned that it takes a team effort to get things done right. Management would work with us and if there was any problem, they would be there to help.

Coworkers that I work with, was the best we, all got along. Thats because we all realized, we are all in the same boat!

The hardest part of the job, was when it snowed or freezing rain.

The best was at the end of the day and you knew you did your best and the job was completed! Also the money!

Love motivating associates
Project Manager-Process Engineering (Former Employee), Norristown, PAFebruary 11, 2015
Pros: earning respect and see workers happy to be there
Cons: letting someone go & taken disciplinary action when needed
Project manager is not want i want to pursue
Distribution Manager is what I want to get back into

Enjoyed being on the DC floor where the action is.
Bonding one on one with my associates instituting safety policies and implementing them so workers would go home injury free. Also the every day challenge of unloading trailers processing orders and loading out bound trailers with efficiency.

Another challenge was keeping my associates engaged to feel they were an important part of everyday accomplishments
What i learned is if you want respect you must give it. And listen to understand what people are saying. Get back to your employees when being asked something.

Wouldn't recommend
Vacation Relief Sales Person (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKFebruary 9, 2015
I would not recommend this place of employment to anyone with a family. There is absolutely no time to balance your home life with working 6 days a week and 12 hours a day.

Utility Worker (Current Employee), Breinigsville, PAJanuary 29, 2015
Typical day includes cleaning machinery to make sure its clean enough for product to much it. I've learned that safety is very important in ever work environment. The management team is very involved with all the associates through-out the plant. Co-workers are very friendly and always try to help each other. The hardest part about my job is probably working on 2nd shift. Most enjoyable part is working with the co-workers that I work with it makes work very fun.

Store Clerk (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: great pay, fun enviroment
Cons: only part-time
Stock bread and merchandise, help customers, built relationship with the regular customers, operated the store solo.. Management was very helpful, great encourager. I would say the hardest part of this job was waiting on the drivers to come bring bread, would have to stay until they arrived.
