Service Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – January 18, 2019
Started working with Acosta as a part time employee, went full time about 4 months. Work was easy and I enjoyed it, something new every day. Then Friday my supervisor called and stated that she was sorry but I was laid off and that it was part life ,No warning no nothing. They use their employees and then just cut you loose. Management was sorry! When something came up we had to call our supervisor and half the time no answer. Would not reccomend this employer to anyone! No pay increases either
Sales Director (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – January 17, 2019
When I sold my company to Acosta, I had envisioned a better opportunity for growth and promotion. Unfortunately, I have been disappointed. I have been stuck in the same position and salary for almost four years, with none of the promised promotions or bonuses. I feel like my talent is being wasted.

You are assigned a list of stores with a time frame to accomplish your tasks. The rest is up to you. There will be times that you partner with other people to accomplish a task but more the most part you are alone and report in via the app. You aren't compensated for your travel so that is why you must plan your route carefully.
Upper management keeps nickel and diming the staff financially, while having no vision of what actually happens on the street. They continue to promise data to clients, while the sales force would rather actually sell products.
Retail Manager Dannon Dedicated Team (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – January 16, 2019
Been with Acosta for almost 4 years. As a Retail Manager I would hire and train the reps that i hired and managed. Normally I would work 3 days in the field and 2 days in office. As a RM we are given the freedom to plan our weeks and work with our reps when we choose. As long as your numbers are good and solid you are given the freedom to run your team. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the lack of raises or incentives for the reps. The most enjoyable is to see the weekly scorecard and compliment the reps for thier hard work.
freedom to plan your workday
lack of raises and incentives for the reps and upper management choosing seniority over performance.
Poor management. Managers need training in communication. They talk too, and don't listen enough. And putting you down to other co-workers. DRAMA! and wanting you to lie about what you do in stores. Its all about the numbers. Part-time works 5 days a week. with no flexibility.
Worked with them for over 20 years..new management
Manager of Operations (Former Employee) – USA – January 11, 2019
came on board and laid off the whole military workforce in 2 days. IT was right before Christmas also. No heart with this company and no communication from corporate office. BIG SHOT company that plays with average peoples lives.
Sales and Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – January 9, 2019
Very disorganized. No raises. No job security, you don't know if you're going to have a job month to month. Very little training, a couple of online videos and 1 day with your boss. Always feel like I could be doing better if i was trained better

Evian Water Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – December 31, 2018
Acosta is a good food broker with a strong client base but they do not pay their employees fair. Local management was great but corporate management makes decisions for their benefit and not the employees who do the every day work.
