As long as you know what your getting into,it's ok
Independent Distributor (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXMarch 21, 2015
As an independent distributor,you where basically on your own.
You had to be self motivated.Interfaced with manager about
every 90 days in person and co-workers once a year.The
hardest part was absorbing 100% of the risk including having
to purchase display equipment.The most enjoyable was the
freedom.
Pros
freedom to sucede
Cons
freedom to fail

Independent Distributor (Former Employee) –  NCMarch 7, 2015
If the company will allow part time territories, it would be a lucrative business. if they cosigned inventory they would grow sales. Have to run out of inventory to make money.

No support from the Top Management.
Independent Distributor (Current Employee) –  North FloridaSeptember 1, 2013
Been working for awhile and still don't quite understand the process of payment. I can't get a straight answer from anyone.
Nurmerous occasions products discontinued and Voortmans does nothing to compensate the loss of income.
Would not suggest this job for a steady income or for primary support.
Pros
Work week.
Cons
No consistent schedule or support in the larger chains.

Don't buy a route
Prospective buyer for a route (Former Employee) –  Homewood, ILOctober 13, 2012
Managers and independent routes are not what they seem. They ask way to much money for routes, they make you pay for store displays. They don't give you the true numbers up front. Think twice before buying a route. After you figure in your expenses, most of the routes make about 25,000 a year. Who would pay for a job making 25,000 a year. Go to Walmart and be a greeter. At least they have benefits.
Pros
nothing
Cons
no healthcare, benefits, buy your own truck and storage, gas, insurance etc...
