    Pros

    Best in class training Ethical company standards Competitive compensation, DPS, bonuses

    Cons

    Work-life balance is hard to maintain In and out of a minivan, regardless of weather, calling on liquor and convenience stores As the company takes on new categories and brands, employee workloads increase without additional support or compensation...there are only so many hours in a day Promoting past Unit Manager is difficult due to the very limited number of DM positions

    Pros

    Great company with good benefits. Training and resources to do the best job are provided. If you are organized, motivated, with good interpersonal skills, you will go far. Must be willing and able to work on your own, follow guidelines and achieve set goals. Good started job. It will teach you a lot of good values and work ethics.

    Cons

    It takes a lot of hours planning and organizing. The more you accomplish, the more they want from you. It never ends, until you are stressed out or burnt out.

    Advice to Management

    At some point management needs to understand that there is a limit to a person's time and endurance.

    Pros

    As a salaried employee we had great pay and benefits. We were allowed to function with a great deal of autonomy and never were micro-managed.

    Cons

    Since it is such a big company, you some times feel as you are merely a number.

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. I received leadership training along with safety training, which I use to this day. I am looking for another job where the benefits can be as outstanding as they were from this company.

    Cons

    Working in a tobacco environment can be annoying.

    Advice to Management

    I had a lot of off time once I worked my way up to it. Week of the 4th and Christmas week were automatic with pay even if you were not employed for a long length of time. Time off was great and benefits were too. Compensation package such as severance pay was great after the company closed.
