decent place to work.
Driver (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LAMarch 6, 2018
Work was fine, but since they walked away from using helpers, all the work falls on your shoulders. For 22 cents a case its really not worth it depending on what route they give you.
Pros
Work alone
Cons
work alone

Fun Fast-Paced Enviroment
Operations (Current Employee) –  Lafayette, LAFebruary 7, 2018
Management tries to keep things light and fun. They know we have to work, so they keep thing entertaining. Rules are strictly and fairly enforced, but are constantly evolving. The routing is done out of state by people who know nothing about the area and rely on glitchy mapping software. The vending business is a fast pace industry, and there are no exceptions here. Most of the equipment is new.

They care about their employees. When the flood hit in August 2016, they collected donations from employees and business partners, matched to amount, and gave every employee who was effected a check from $4000 to $9000 to help people get back on their feet. There is a family feel atmosphere.

One thing that needs to be corrected it the boundries between departments. There is a constant battle between sales and operations. At times, it could be overbearing. Suggestions are listened to, but are usually shot down without any effort on how to improve them.

Overall, it's a great place to work. Benefits are great. Medical, dental, vision, company matching 401k, life insurance, ecetera.
Pros
Fun atmosphere, benefits, family feel
Cons
Walls between depts

It Helps Pay The Bills
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Lafayette, LAJanuary 20, 2018
Rules and roles are constantly changing.
No definite time to get off
Separation among departments
Unrealistic expectations.
The economy is in an extreme decline yet they expect sales to be through the roof.
Fluctuating income

Rules and policies are created by old men that sit behind a desk all day & implement outdated policies from the 80 & 90s


But I will say when sales are through the roof, the environment is awesome. It is the best place to work. But the morale is down when sales are down and sales are down because the economy is down.

And by far has the best benefits of any company.
Pros
Awesome benefits
Cons
Fluctuating income, no definite work shifts, constant pay cuts

Not a bad place but hated the hours. It can teach a train a little bit better. They kind of just let them go and learn on the go. Besides that not bad at all
Pros
Exercise, incentives
Cons
Hours, breaks

Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Houma, LAOctober 5, 2017
At CCD you have to be fast moving and get the job done. The people are friendly and willing to assist in any way they can. The management staff tries their best to accommodate their employees in the event a personal matter arises. I would highly recommend any individual with high work ethics and determination to apply with them.

Account Manger (Former Employee) –  New Orleans, LAAugust 15, 2017
if management were better I would have never left. Its a fun job to have but pay is terrible. small base and commission is .08% of what you sell. Company pretty much works you to death and doesn't reward for it.

Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  New Orleans, LAAugust 11, 2017
Its a face place job with plenty of job security. The lack of career opportunities is a little low. But the freedom and flexibility with the schedules is a plus.

Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAJuly 23, 2017
I was with Crescent Crown from being a senior in high school as an order selector. I spent five years in the warehouse. It is the best starting job a kid could as for, and opportunities for advancement are there if you want them. You can become a truck driver or maybe a warehouse supervisor if you're driven. Be able to pace yourself in the warehouse or it will burn you out in no time!
Pros
Pretty good money, laid back atmosphere.
Cons
Most new laborers start on nights.

Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  ArizonaJune 14, 2017
This company works you almost 40-60 hours a week.
If you call out sick they write you up for that,
you will not have a personal life working with this company
