Retention/Escalation Representative (Former Employee) – Flowery Branch, GA – July 9, 2017
This company was great to work for. The management was great, advancement was a breeze, and my personality worked well with this company's culture. The only con was that you have to work part time before being hired as a full time agent. I left the company right around my 1 year mark because I was not promoted to full time, but was only promoted to Retention.
Inventory Control Specialist October (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – June 29, 2017
While it is not my practice to talk badly about a former employer, I can say that it takes a special person to work there. Although the jobs there are well defined and fairly easy to do, there is not a lot of team spirit or cohesiveness that I feel makes a good company better. After a while employees just do their jobs. No more, no less.
The only time you see management is when something is done wrong, or they are looking for a reason to complain about your productivity.
Retail Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Crystal Springs, GA – June 20, 2017
There are some aspects of the company that could use a make over, a portion of the trucks don't have A/C which sucks for employees in hot weather. Other than that, the work is fufilling and the coworkers are very amiable.
Driver (Former Employee) – Beltsville, MD – June 20, 2017
Do yourself a favor and avoid working for this company. This Is the worst job I've ever had. It's commission based pay and the percentage is a joke. Managers are clowns. You'll work 10 hour days and get paid for working 5.
ROUTE SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – June 19, 2017
You can get your B class through this company. i learned to learn my customers and keep them happy. All managers are there for your disposal as long as your the squeaky wheel. The guys you will work with are all about their own route but full of knowledge for you to be successful. Its a young ambitious persons job, bust your sales and you'll be compensated. Physically, its the hardest on your body. Most enjoyable is the relationships that grow with your customers.
The most enjoyable part about working at D.S Services was that I felt good about helping others and learning that a typical day in retention doesn't exist. For it was never the same scenario present daily.
Route Manager (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 8, 2017
This company is not a long term career. It should only be a stepping stone. Upper management do not care about the Route Sales Representatives or lower mangers. There is no security in any position, even if you do what is required and go farther than expected at any moment there is a feeling of losing your job. Upper management receive merit increases annually and lower managers and the route sales representative do not unless the company has a good year. The good things about this company is that they teach good leadership skills and other skills that would be useful in a true career.
CUSTOMER SERVICE REP (Former Employee) – Flowery Branch, GA – May 29, 2017
I worked at DS Waters for almost 2 years. It was a fast paced always changing call center. Sometimes we didnt change as fast as the technology and that frustrated employees and customers alike. But overall it was a nice place to work
