Territory Service Rep (Former Employee) – La Palma, CA – August 21, 2017
first big company I worked for always busy although I due believe they got rid of their sale team and went direct to store but what I remember is everyone being very professional and we had company cars for personal use
Sanitation Worker (Former Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – August 19, 2017
Too much drama between the union and the management staff. The training conducted by union representatives included how to milk the clock and lie to your supervisor. Also we were shown the best places to hide when not busy.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Nevada – August 18, 2017
Sales manager roles have flexibility but the time constraints are mostly built around customer availability
There are plenty of opportunities provided by the company to grow and develop your career
Local management in my area was outstanding but senior management varied wildly.
the most difficult part of the job was the constant changing of goals. One week all that would matter was getting labor inline, the next week it would be ensuring walmart displays were set correctly. in my 7 years in sales they changed my job title and responsibilities 3 times.
The most enjoyable parts of the job was the time spent in stores working with our customers and that feeling you got when you nailed a good sale or reached a sales goal.
Was a great job till they laid-off everybody . I enjoy working with Kellogg for the past 10 years was part time at first 5years then went full time just the past year and if I knew they was going to laid off employees I wouldn't of went full time.
Fun environment to work. Had freedom to enhance customer relations and achieve quarterly goals.
Retail Sales Manager (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 16, 2017
The company was a good place to work. You were able to achieve your objectives in your own way. Allowed a lot of time for me to develop customer relationships. Good pay with Health, 401K, and company car.,
The freedom to make your own schedule and be out with the customers a good amount of time.
merchandising / local sales calls to grocery and other retail stores
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – August 16, 2017
Most recent job took me to local retail stores to check back stock and move to shelves or displays. Worked with management regarding display needs and ideas. Travel between stops was challenging at times because of popular destination area. At end of the day sence of accomplishment.
Customer Specific Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Washington, PA – August 16, 2017
Nice place to work and great brands. Lots of opportunities if you're willing to relocate. Flexibility to work from home which creates a great work life balance. There were many perks when I worked there almost 10 years ago.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Franklin, MA – August 16, 2017
Typical day at work would consist of driving to a predetermined store and either restocking the store with existing product or processing new product just delivered.The hardest part of the job was sometimes you were at the mercy of the truck drivers being late, causing you to run late.I loved being my own boss and working at my own quick pace.
working alone, being your own boss
when a truck driver was held up and your product wasnt delivered on time
Analyst (Current Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – August 15, 2017
Kellogg has great pay and benefits. The culture has changed a lot in a negative way. No enthusiasm for growth potential and the employee moral is lackluster most days. Change is not swift and communicated well.
I really enjoyed my short lived employment with Kellogg. The atmosphere was great and the management was very good at what they do. I wish I was keeping my role as the company changes and laid off most of their sales staff, but I move on now to a brighter future elsewhere. I would gladly return to Kellogg someday if they required my services.
Retail Sales Representative- Colorado (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – August 14, 2017
The Company made the transition out of the Direct Store Delivery, it what they thought what was best for them financially. The people were fun and liked to challenge each other to succeed in the field.
Great place to work, but poor executive leadership
Manager (Former Employee) – DSD – August 14, 2017
Executive team continues to promote growing the top line, however sales have continued to decline. Cost Cutting, through plant closures, DSD elimination keep Wall Street happy. No job is safe at Kellogg's. Would not recommend.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – August 11, 2017
Immediate manager and coworkers are fantastic but upper management were bullies.
Frequent evening/late night emails
fairly flexible work hours as you make your own schedule most of the time the job could be done in 35-40 hours a week, however there are weeks where upwards of 70 hours are required
as the vacation rep i was required to do everything a regular rep would do but at a reduced pay and i was not eligible for bonuses based on sales(i.e i could sell a display that would get a rep to their sales goal but they would receive the bonus and i would get nothing except a pat on the back)
