Company Culture

Terrible, poor.

Support from management

Leadership from upper management is horrific, at best.

Teamwork

Teamwork is truly only executed among the labor pool and with some production supervisors. Beyond that, its all lip service.

Freedom to work independently

no

Internal Communication

poor

Gender Equality

n/a

Attitude towards older colleagues

n/a

Career Development

Non-existant

Overall compensation for your work

You will get payed, but you always have to make sure you are getting payed the correct amount because they have a regular habit of not paying you for all your hours worked.

Office / Work Environment

Work environment has a negative energy to it and drains you of your life force and positivity.

Environmental Friendliness

Friendly among the labor pool primarily.

Work-Life Balance

There is no work-life balance. You work for them or you are terminated.

Company Image

Their image is Great! You would honestly believe that they are the optimal company to work for!!

Job Security

n/a

Handicapped Accessibility

n/a

Workplace Safety

Poor

Challenging Work

The challenge is actually "going" in to work everyday.

Inclusive / Diverse

Upper management is 100% caucasian. Plant Management, Production Supervisor and labor pool is predominantly black.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove current management and replace with efficient people

What I like about the company

nothing

What I dislike about the company

almost everything

Company Culture

There is none, you are a satellite with very little interaction other than ordering product and upcoming sales news

Support from management

Not enough people in management to support area salesmen

Teamwork

You work alone, there is no one regularly available to assist you in a timely fashion in case of emergency

Freedom to work independently

Delivery is structured through corporate. No adding or subtracting stops on your own. Route is overloaded with stops, too many for a normal 8-10 hour workday

Internal Communication

Only concerning ordering and upcoming sales. Sales growth reports circulations were discontinued.

Overall compensation for your work

Decent pay, but not when equated to hours worked. If your sales are much higher than projected by the company, your commission percentage may be lowered

Office / Work Environment

Hand held used for sales is excellent. Worked out of a dusty storage unit with poor lighting

Environmental Friendliness

Uses some recycled paper materials

Work-Life Balance

12-16 hour days, if stores are open on holidays you must deliver to them. You must choose vacation time at the start of the year, from the weeks available when it's your turn. Not enough workers to cover multiple salesmen on vacation at once. No one to cover route in an emergency. Not for people with families.

Company Image

Everyone feels overworked

Job Security

As long as you're able to work you'll have work. And you're expected to work, rain, sleet, snow, hurricane, etc.

Handicapped Accessibility

No accommodations available as a distributor

Workplace Safety

They just want the product sold by any means

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more relief workers

What I like about the company

Left alone to do my job with no one constantly over my shoulder

What I dislike about the company

No one to assist me or cover my route in case of an emergency
