Local Sr. Management all fearfull of jobs with inability to forge local relationships
Pros: i enjoy food service people and was always offered free food and drink
Cons: sr. management ego and hangups
Great national corporate platform, co-workers (buyers, customer service, contract, credit, drivers ) and customers I called on daily. I loved my customer and visa versa. My day always very busy 7am planning, covering outs, mis-picks, regular appointments, cultivating leads, regular orders, special orders, notifications to all departments (buyers, customer – more... service, contract pricing, credit issues etc.) Will calls, some deliveries and new proposals. At home after 5-7pm Entering review of day into LINC and schedule with alerts commitments made during the day. Most enjoyable part of my day is the personal interactions with peers and friends(customers)
Many of my loyal customers have left the company.
Dealing with unreasonable sr. management cronyism was another issue. I saw numerous very good employees being removed when doing whats right for the company and customers within policy and procedures but outshining sr. management. Limited inventory to be a full service supplier. My experience saw decisions to (without notice) discontinue service to certain customers and market segments and a year later demand sales go back and get the shunned business back. – less
