Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice would be to do employee progress checks, actually come in contact with your employees, new employee training programs. Most of all do not use temporary services, and take care of the employees who stick around to get the job done. I use to love my job, but now with all the pay cuts and long time friends / associates leaving for new employment no so much. The work is hard with 12 hour nights, but with not good pay....that seems to decrease monthly. Instead of hiring full time employees they bring in temporary services with people with no training. I have never meet my supervisor in person in the 5 years I've been with the company. Forget it if u have a problem .....HR takes forever and payroll is a headache. Its a job......and I am thankful for it!! I just know it can be more if management was more involved with the process, and concerned about the employees.

    Current Employee - Produce Sales Merchandiser in Atlanta, GA (US)

    I have been working at Advantage Sales and Marketing full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It is a company that allows a self starter to work independly to accomplish goals. The benefits are some of the best in the industry. I have had a chance to connect with and stay in touched with many principals from some of the largest manufacturers we represent. In my current position I call on produce managers at a large national grocery chain.

    Cons

    I wish the company would offer COLA raises. I was sorry to have had my car allowance taken away. I think that we should have hands on training on technology, rather than online.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper level management needs to roll up their sleeves and get in the trenches with us. And by upper level, I mean above ROM.
