Sales Merchandiser (Former Employee) – California – April 5, 2016
There is no such thing as a typical day at Dietz and Watson as there was a lot of growth going on that lead to traveling on a whim at times. I did learn patience and the importance of communication to get things accomplished. Management, when I started there was good and involved. However, as the years moved forward there was less active managing and the responsiveness was lacking when I would need assistance getting things accomplished. The hardest part of the job was at times the travel and being away from home for weeks at a time. The part I loved most was my coworkers and the people in my stores.
Start shift 1 hour early before shift start to assist morning shift with shutting down operations for start of second shift decide what orders are going to start first then set bagger machine with proper bags and date adjust voltage and speed on cryovac 8600 so product in the bags get a proper seal and vacuum through out the shift period.I have leared to trouble shoot machines that i operate so maintenance would not be needed unless A major break down the supervisor was very respectful trustworthy ,helpful and understanding created a good work life balance coworkers was somewhat easy to work with everyone could not stay at the same speed but would catch up eventually very easy work nothing hard at all
it was a nice place to work also the people was nice

ROUTE SALES REP (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 24, 2014
Dietz and Watson is a great company to work for. They understand family time. The only downfall is that my supervisor would not communicate with us and keep us up to date with what is going on. We would get information from our customers weeks in advance before he would inform us of anything. Another driver and I both were recently informed that we were being laid off at the end of May but know clear explaination of what was going on.
Learned plenty of new skills and, how to use tools and, equipment.

A helper as a general laborer to an experienced maintenance mechanic. Learned how to use various tools and, equipment safely and, properly. The co-workers were helpful and, always focused on the job. The hardest part of the job was also the best part: Facing new challenges and, learning something new everyday.
