This is a very fast past environment. You definitely have to pay attention to your training when you start, as long as you do that you should be fine. The management is very easy to get along with and very helpful if you have any questions. They promote with in and are very open to you moving up in the company.

Blender Operator (Former Employee) – Aurora, IL – July 16, 2014
Work was great learned new things about different proteins and what was in the ingredients at the job. The hardest part of the job was staying clean and the most enjoyable part of the job was less supervision.
Even though I had/worked with a great group of guys, doing the repetitive thing was just not my style. We had to take the same amount of calls and process the same amount of order in the same period of time everyday. Our hands as sales reps were a little tide up because the Director of sales at the time did not believe in providing tool to assist the sale team.
supervisor (Former Employee) – naperville – January 28, 2014
Don't waste your time. Bunch of kids run the plant and do a horrible job. No one will help you or give you the time of day to teach you. I was a supervisor for a few months and then as soon as my managers 24/7 schedule didn't work I was let go for a "data entry error" a few days before x-mas..... thanks for nothing optimum!!
Territory Manager (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 17, 2013
From managing distributors, to key accounts, to both the inside & outside sales forces that represent the distributors, this job will keep you constantly balancing your time while increasing your sales to meet & increase set goals.
Both the company and brand are very strong within this industry, allowing for some flexibility, as opposed to a small(er) growing brand. And there are plenty of tools available. However, the company continues to expand, which does causes the occasional hiccup. Would like to see growth within the sales force.
The direct management and fellow co-workers have been a positive influence on the environment, always working as a team.
great group of individuals, striving for same goal.
growth of sales force did not match growth of company sales.
high level of stress, they should change name to stress factory.
warehouse lead (Current Employee) – aurora Il – March 25, 2013
very short on staff, becouse of that there is high loads of work from front desk to warehouse floor. The hourly pay is very dispointing for the job. once you are entered in to any of optimum buildings they expect you to know everything with very few days of training. The management totally lame and looks like they have no idea what employs are doing on the work floor. lots of overtime and if you want give up all or part your personal life to this company then good luck.
