Overall nice place to work
Route Sales Rep (Former Employee), Blasdell, NYSeptember 19, 2013
The managers I had when I was a sales rep were great. They were helpful and were there to answer questions I had. I learned a lot about sales and customer service. I really grew to enjoy my route and the customers I dealt with on a daily basis. I was very comfortable in this position and hope to find the same success in my future endeavors.

worse place I ever worked
factory worker (Former Employee), owensboro kyAugust 15, 2013
A lot of favoritism from management. Work ethics are horrible. We had someone terminated from their job after they made them go on fmla after being injured at work and his fmla ran out because doctor would not release him to go back to work. That's only one example. They don't care about their employees at all. Undercover boss made no difference to – more... our plant! Most mismanaged company I've ever worked for. – less

Good sales stepping stone with no real advancement opportunities
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCAugust 14, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule and performance driven.
Cons: micromanagement, no growth opportunities and company is stuck behind the times
The outside sales role is good for those who like a flexible work schedule that you create. However, there is a lot of micromanagement and no real bonus incentives for longevity and performance over time.
