This was one of my favorites jobs by far. I sold chocolate and was able to talk to everyone who came in. I had favorites when i worked here and got to see so many smiling faces. I loved this job for its quick paced environment and constant flow.
Temporary Assignment (Former Employee) – Montrose,Colorado – September 21, 2016
the first day at the job didn't get any training or direction on what my tasks were going to be and got yelled at because I was standing around doing nothing 5 minutes before my shift started! Duh I'm new!!! so I started working with others and they showed me the job and new themselves to the task. Upper management yells at there leads what a joke! haven't you hear of taking care of your employees?? people will be more productive when you coach them not YELL!!! please and thank you would be nice too!!! Management that walks by and seeing me stopping for second should not make rude jesters or make rude comments to anyone! how about taking the lead aside and find out what's going on?! completely unprofessional!!! They should have a small group meeting with the workers in that area to touch base on the task at hand and not treat us like a bunch of idiots. We have been in great careers and have decided to change and try something new so enough said I will never shop at your retail store. the people at plant are nothing but rude and spiteful people.
A typical day at work consists of driving around your territory and tending to your accounts needs. Your territory is a group of stores assigned to you and only you - some territories are as large as 80 accounts. The accounts range from department stores to little mom and pop shops. In this job the hardest part would be sticking to your designated route. There are times that it's necessary to visit a store more than once a week - managers frown on this because they find that any unfinished business should be taken care of on your next scheduled visit which could be anywhere between a week or a month (stores do not like it when you leave things pending for the following visit). The most enjoyable part of the job would be creating your own schedule to suit your life balance. As long as you complete your 40hrs you can spread out your hours throughout the work week. I would usually work 4 ten hours day and give myself a 3 day weekend. Management was very helpful. While I was employed I had an excellent District Manager who helped you whenever you needed him.
