Pros: you are your onw boss, paid weekly
Cons: no health coverage and have to pay for your own gas.
A typical day at Pepperidge Farm started with waking up at 1:30am. I drove to my depot and loaded product I needed for the day. After I finished loading my truck, I drove to my first account (one of twenty nine).I used the CK61 handheld order/stale computer to help mange my returns ,deliveries and damaged products. I then made my orders and return tickets, got check in, rotated stock and replenished the shelves. Normally I finishing around 2 pm, the hardest part of the job was to stay awake. As for management , I was the franchise owner and I was my own manager. So with that said " He was the best boss I ever had". The most enjoyable part of Pepperidge Farm Johnston County was selling a top notch product at a reasonable price. Owning and operating this franchise allowed me to grow inside the community and became a face people know. Helping out churches, the homeless and Clayton area ministries, was a reward by itself. But the real reward was when you get thanked by strangers in the street; you can't put a price on that.
