Company Culture

At one time it actually had a decent culture. The culture that was worthy of such a title only lasted a couple months.

Support from management

If you aren't doing exactly what one manager says you should be doing then you are doing it all wrong. Suggestions to make things easier is not considered.

Teamwork

Doesn't exist.

Freedom to work independently

Nope, micromanage is key.

Internal Communication

Get ready to receive a condescending response for any question.

Career Development

No.

Overall compensation for your work

Not a good career choice as you could be laid off at any time for anybor no reason due to a large chain dropping the brand. This will lead to you losing the job.

Work-Life Balance

More work, less time at home.....~60 hrs to get a decent paycheck

Company Image

Old broken trucks, faded logos, and terrible communication when it comes to receiving help when a repair facility or repair is needed.

Job Security

Thibgs can go bad really fast. Downsizing is a normal daily function.

Challenging Work

It can be challenging, bit the more hours you put in, then the higher chances of getting a better paycheck. Key words are more, hours, and chances.

Company Culture

Terrible company culture. There is no cohesion with any other departments or employees at all.

Support from management

No they do not.

Teamwork

Not at all.

Freedom to work independently

Some people are, but most others have to have someone directing them at all times for tasks to be completed.

Internal Communication

There was very little communication.

Career Development

There is no career Development at this company. Very rarely does the company promote anyone who is not related to the owner.

Job Security

There are very few employees that have been with the company for more than a year.

Inclusive / Diverse

If someone came up with an idea on how to do something better, the idea was usually shot down due to the fact that it "Isn't the way things are done."

What I like about the company

The hours were decent and the ability to have weekends off was nice.

What I dislike about the company

The benefits are hardly worth the money that you spend on them. The company does not try to keep employees for very long and they pay rate is barely what a single person can live on. Most of the people that work there are below the poverty line and can hardly support themselves. The company makes you as the employee feel as if you are just another person to be sent through the meat grinder. They will use you and not offer any assistance.

Support from management

There's was very little support in helping one succeed in sales

Workplace Safety

It was more of a route sales pos.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay the route sales reps. a higher commission

What I like about the company

I didn't because the pay was the worse pay I have ever earned. It was solely based on route sales performance

What I dislike about the company

They don't pay their sales reps. enough, especially for the hours that one works.
