Unless you are desperate do not take this job.
Route sales (Former Employee) –  Nottingham, PaJune 1, 2018
Extremely long days and work weeks. Brutal on family life. Poor compensation for hours and effort. Bonus system will work for a new employee, but becomes unreachable after that. Constant micro management and ridiculous mandatory meetings. They call themselves "family oriented"....nothing could be farther from the truth. It's never enough.
Pros
Co work workers....relationships built on the route
Cons
Everything else

Decent company
Packer (Former Employee) –  Nottingham, PAFebruary 18, 2018
Depending on which department you work, and which shift. Some managers are really fair, others tend to show favortism. A lot of people who have worked at the company for a while act like they're bosses and will cry about seniority while trying to boss around junior employees and temps. Shifts are long with little break times so make sure you have very comfortable shoes. Insurance benefits are good and you get a discount to YMCA, gym membership reimbursement, discounts to movie theaters and amusement parks so that's a plus.
Pros
Benefits, hours, no micromanagement, don't have to worry about getting laid off
Cons
short breaks, hard on body, favortism, small pay raises

Herr Foods
Human Resources Benefits Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Nottingham, PAFebruary 2, 2018
Herr Foods is family-owned large snack food company. The best part of the job is co-workers and helping one another. The struggling part is advancement and lackluster management.

Good place to work
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Chillicothe, OHJanuary 24, 2018
Really good company to work for. Non-union, but gave excellent pay and benefits. Only drawback was supervisors. Hours are unpredictable and vary greatly. You must start as a temp and work your way in. Took me two and a half years to get hired on part-time.

Horrible working conditions, no benefits, minium pay and poor raises
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Hainesport, NJJanuary 16, 2018
Typical day starts with unloading a trailer by hand, it takes about two hours on average with two people, could be longer with only one person. Then after a 30 minute unpaid lunch break, we go back into the warehouse to pick orders. This branch has 18 routes that order daily. We pull and check the orders then place them in the loading bay for the RSP (route sales persons) to load and deliver the next morning, Usually, this task takes abaout 4 hours with 4 of us working together. The hardest part of the job is you're on your feet and bending over/lifting up all day long. There is nothing enjoyable about this job.
Pros
They often feed their employees
Cons
Short breaks, no helthcare for part time, labor intensive for poor pay

The company is full of friendly faces. The CEO genuinely cares about its employees. It is very much a place that is SLOW to change. SC management is a nightmare.

Good company

Good company to work for but had lots work and some days many long hours. Route delivery is not necessarily easy work and you may have many stops to complete in a day.

Productive workplace, a chance to move on in the workplace.
Packer (Former Employee) –  Nottingham, PAOctober 3, 2017
I really like this job, it had great benefits and opportunities to move up. It was long hours but in the end it was worth it. I also loved that we would get paid weekly because I was able to mantain my bills and take care of my daughter.

Ridiculously long hours and impossible expectations
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Perryopolis, PASeptember 15, 2017
The Job has potential to be great.. Everyday is Different in some way which is nice... And servicing stores is actually enjoyable.... The Long work Hours are the career killers at Herrs.. To make any kind of good money you'd have to be out a minimum of 12 hours a day (5days a week) or 10 Hours a day (6 days a week)... BECAUSE They sell you on making your route run "like it's your own business" but yet, they FORCE you to continuously service stores that actually cost YOU time and money to be in rather than allowing you to pull out of those stores... Management is constantly running routes because they can't keep employees, so don't expect to get any route support from your district boss... You're told to give your personal cell out to your boss and Customers which eventually lead to you getting calls at 7,8, and 9 at night, so you're never actually off the clock... And worst of all, you'll get great bonuses your first year but eventually management puts those out of reach too (no
Matter how hard you work)
Pros
Outside, always new people and surroundings, Active job, benefits
Cons
Commission pay with hard to reach bonuses, CRAZY hours, micromanaging, High stress

Fast paced and stressful but good pay
Route Salesperson (Former Employee) –  Lebanon, PAAugust 16, 2017
The pay for this position is good but only if you are sales oriented and hungry to make money. Commission based, you make more money if you're willing to put in longer hours.

Very long days and no Overtime pay.
