Pros: 4 day work week
Cons: many, physically challenging, shortages of products constantly
If you start out as a SSR, be prepared to work early (5am), hard, and have to deal with many potential problems that were not of your making. For example: you have a route that has 55 stops that particular day, and over the course of the day you are supposed to deliver 5000 shop towels and 1000 white aprons among many other products, but production only had 3000 shop towels and 100 aprons. You know before you even head out that several customers are not going to get what they paid for and are going to be unhappy with you, and even though it's not your fault, it's productions fault, you are SUPPOSED to take the blame and run the product out on a different day on YOUR time to make up for the shortages. That is a typical day in the life of an SSR there. I did it well for 6 years, but if you are not the type who can roll with the punches and have a hard time taking blame for something that wasn't your fault, DO NOT WORK HERE! The example I gave above happens almost every day, it's a common occurrence there, and if you're not an accountable person who protects the customer and gets them what they pay for even when it's not your fault, you will hate this job!
