Long Hours, Your on your own
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Sylmar, CA – July 18, 2018
Start time is generally very early ranging from 12am- 4am depending on the route that you run. Got to make sure that your load is secure because warehouse workers do a very poor job at strapping the carts/pallets. Your duties are being a Salesman (writing orders for the stores and executing plan), Driving and delivering using a commercial vehicle ranging from a Sprinter to a Bulk Truck, and Merchandising and dealing with customers. Its a very stressful job around the holidays , plan is ridiculously high and you would have very high volume of product going in. Management is okay they are somewhat fair but they are always running down routes due to being short staffed or people calling off . I feel like i am being very underpaid at the moment for how much blood sweat and tears i shed. The stress level is beyond the roof because of how drastically your lifestyle changes! Having to go to bed while the sun is still up is very difficult. Very long hours and you have to deal with a lot of unhappy accounts. I wouldn't recommend this job for a person that is mentally incapable of dealing with this, the work life balance is very poor!
Pretty much your all on your own left to fend for yourself .
