At the time I worked for Sugar Foods it was a very cutthroat atmosphere. There were too many people hired for very parallel positions.
Marketing Director National Accounts/Meetings Mgr. (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 26, 2017
My typical work day was spent with the National Account Sales Managers either in person at the office, on the phone, or out making sales calls. I traveled extensively so wasn't around the office atmosphere very much. The favorite part of my job was planning and executing co-branding mock-ups of our product brands with the branded products used by our National Accounts, such as Burger King, McDonald's,Taco Bell,, etc.
I also planned all of the special events, press conferences, training and sales and food-service meetings. That was fun, as meeting and event planning is in my blood. I think this was a very enjoyable part of my job also.
Hardest part of the job was the extensive travel and being away from home so much. You also had to really watch your back at this business, as there was always somebody out to take your job.
Good pay and benefits
Office atmosphere, travel and overall attitudes of upper management
