I got paid $150 a day plus overtime. The boss got mad if we worked for longer than 12 hours a day, but it's god not to when there's 15 or more deliveries to be done plus spending 4 hours or more inbetween deliveries driving. We had to lift roughly 2500lbs or more everyday on our own. They never appointed us a helper unless we complained like a baby about it. $150 is horrible pay when you have to basically do three jobs on your own everyday. The manager is pretty understandable to the truckers needs but the person making the routes needs to do a better job. None of the truckers are happy about their salary in the Corsicana area. That location needs to be improved.
Dont work here. Its not worth the time dealing with awful management that has no clue about anything, way underpaid for the work thats expected of you to be done. Poor equipment. Lots of two faced workers and constantly have to watch your back and cover your self or theyll turn anything they can against you and on you.
Daytona....layed back , small facility, close nit , good folk.

Can’t speak for every facility but the one in Ormond Beach Fla. is a nice place to work - good ,layed back supervisors- a small facility with little to no micro managing or baby sitting. You do your job , your left alone. All things considered with the soda vending delivery business , I’ve been with all the competitors in this local area and DPSG has been my best experience of them all.....this type of work (if your familiar with it) is what it is. The starting pay between them all is basically the same - a common thing for the Daytona area.....DPSG you just have less stress or headaches. I find the insurance here at DPSG is better and cost’s less.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – West Virginia – April 15, 2018
As a merchandiser, you'll be doing all the hard work. Stocking shelves, building displays etc. You'll have to also deal with customers in the store shopping and with angry managers when there's a product out of stock or you aren't there early enough. The pay is lower than the other 2 soda companies so there's that also. You'll be expected to fully stock 4-6 stores in under 8 hours and not go in to overtime and that's also with travel time. You're expected to do too much for what you're getting paid.
It's a paycheck.
Pay rate, no overtime, workload, no way to move up from stocking
Demanding, Low Mileage Reimbursment & Hourly Rate, Hard to Advance
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Holland, MI – April 11, 2018
Typical Day as a merchandiser consist of starting at 7am with no set end time. Expect to work long days,over 8 hours, especially in the summer time. Each day, every merchandiser is assigned a route which consists of 4-6 stores, sometimes more. Mileage remburisement is low, and you dont get reimbursed for the mileage driven from your home to your first stop; as I wasnt aware of this until after being hired in and having to drive 20 plus miles at times- to my first assigned store on my route., There is a lack of communication across the board within this company. Upper mgmt & your assigned supervisor are often times hard to get ahold of , which is extremely frustrating- especially if you are needing an answer for a question. Mileage reimbursement varies from .30 cents to .33 cents a mile- which is below the standard rate. As a merchandiser you can expect to work almost every weekend. Merchandising is a labor intensive job. Throughout the weekdays, you can expect to work loads that consist of 2 or more skids of product at 2-3 stores on your assigned route. Working as a merchandiser is demanding both physically and mentally, that comes with very little reward & hardly any appreciation for those who actually try to do a good job. There is little room for advancement. Over the past year, I've applied for 2 different job positions, that would allow me to advance, and was turned down both times. The hourly pay is about the same across the board; I have been with this company for almost 3 years and i only make 5 cents more an hour than a newly hired merchandisermore... off of the street with no prior experience. Lastly with this job, you have to be flexible, as often times- you will be asked to pick up extra stores on your all ready busy & overloaded scheduled route.less
Job Security, Lots of hours

stocker (Former Employee) – Superior, WI – April 11, 2018
I learned alot in the merchanding aspect of retail goods,how stores would alocate products and spacing.holidays where especially busy with products and pricing and the extra demand for keeping products on the shelf and in order.hardest part for me the size of some stores and the amount of product that was needed to keep on hand,especially during the holidays
Room to grow your territory. health benefits are excellent. time off policy is inconsistent and managed poorly. Break downs in infrastructure and communication is poor between departments. since recent acquisition processes are even more chaotic. too many chiefs and not enough Indians to help in the field. lots of finger pointing without resolving core issues.
there is room for advancement, but appears to be a lot of headache for very little pay increase.
So far the job has been good. It is hard work but you are not rushed to get it done as long as you don't go over your Hours of service. 17 to 25 stops a day and anywhere from 275 to 550 cases delivered per day sometimes with a helper other times without
