It may come as a surprise to you but companies are in business to make money and only to make money.
MEMEME, for the most part you've already proved beyond a reasonable doubt that you're a ignorant liar and not worth answering...
but,
so you don't think their making money now?

When will you be satisfied they make enough money then?
Perhaps when YOU'RE not making any and the top 1% makes it all?

Because in fact that's the direction it's been headed and accelerating under Republican rule, and there's no Republican spin from a sheepish minion like you to make that fact go away.

The correct usage is "they're" as in "they are".
It is not mine, nor it is your determination when they have made enough money. That is up to them and market forces. It is really simple. If you and your like minded twits do not like them making money then stop buying their protucts. Their money flow will then come to a screeching halt. The very last thing this country needs is government intervention in how much money anyone is allowed to make. Freedom ends at that second.
Freedom and free-market forces is an illusion naive minded twits like yourself believe occurs.

In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Greenspan expressed his
disagreement with the conservative argument that tax cuts essentially pay for themselves by generating revenue and productivity among recipients.
“They do not,” said Greenspan.

“I’m very much in favor of tax cuts but not with borrowed money and
the problem that we have gotten into in recent years is spending
programs with borrowed money, tax cuts with borrowed money,” he said.
“And at the end of the day that proves disastrous. My view is I don’t think we can play subtle policy here.”

When Alan Greenspan was asked; "do we really have a free market
system"?
He answered so as not to be heard publicly; "no".

He then went on to talk publicly about the virtues of our free market system.

Either the government will get your money in the form of taxes, or
corporations will get an equal amount in the form of profits.
The difference of course is that corporations don't/won't/can't take care of those who need it and the less fortunate.

So you want to be an uncivilized jerk, go right ahead and see how far down the road it gets you.

Remember, last time it got you a Congressional minority and a lost Presidency.
Next time it will too.

lol rotflmao...
it's not just me you have to prove your lies to, it's everyone that read what you said!

I'll be more than happy to come down to Quick Chek and call you a liar right to your face if you don't know me.

you are so twisted and pathetic. I told you if you do not want mars to make any money get your dimwits to not purchase their products but that just flew over your head.<quoted text>

I don't buy their products dumb ass.

<quoted text> Yes, Id rather my money go to a corporation since I invest in some companies and some of my income is from that. The money I send to the government I never see a return.
That's because it's held until your 62,65,67.
Then hopefully you'll receive more than you paid in.

But your solution is for Republicans to void what you paid in if your under 55 years old.
Or give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street so they can get kick backs in the form of contributions to have them re-elected.

But on a positive note; if you were any dumber you'd be eligible for retard benefits.

I would be upset if Mars was becoming like the other companies who treat workers and job applicants poorly.

There are so few big companies around that hire people today at good pay unless you have a college degree. Many of the S&R, Forklift Driver, or other blue collar jobs are filled through temp agencies who are the only access to many major companies.

I've had offers, and even worked a few days here and there, but I didn't like the increasingly low pay, long commutes, no benefits or bad working conditions.
Like I've said in other posts, I don't have to work and won't put up with draconian bosses.
If a potential company isn't willing to give me credit where credit is due, or pay me what I'm worth, then I'm just not interested in working for them.
and the bad work record this gives you is why any good employer would turn you down i worked there for 3 years any temp that gets picked up Earned it most have been good workers for 5-10 years and are proven hard workers

It was back in 2010 that Terry was saying Mars was moving to Mexico. He was pretending to actually know what he was talking about.

After much thought, I've decided to take advantage of what Topix allows me to do; say what's on my mind.
(Something that a newspaper will censor you for or just not allow at all).
I've known people who work for M&M Mars and they tell me what goes on there.
Of course working for a company that is owned by the richest person in the state of NJ, Jacqueline Mars would be a added bonus. Albeit she has very little over-sight of the company anymore from what I understand.
I, like many others always enjoyed eating M&M's, and I was excited and proud to live in a town that has a company known world-wide for quality, and I was willing and able to go to work for them in 2007.
But I was turned down without explanation, reason or even a courtesy call, despite being fully qualified and eager for the job.
The managers there typically earn 6 figure salaries. And some of the execs earn 7 figure salaries.
All while cutting back wages and benefits for starting laborers in around 2004-5, so that management and execs could give themselves a pay raise, and bonuses to go along with their tax cuts.
Some of the people there do absolutely nothing all day other than to make sure other laborers get the work done so management looks good.
Other laborers work a few hours then goof-off the rest of the day. It all depends on who you're friends with I guess.
Now I hear they're thinking about moving to Mexico, as though they're mad at Obama for becoming President.
Not enough conservative Mexicans to fill the jobs there?
Good riddance! Go to Mexico then, and don't come back!
Am I bitter at my Mars experience? Maybe a little, but you can decide for yourself what kind of company Mars has become.
Most of the people there from what I hear are extremely conservative, paranoid, unsympathetic, overpaid, angry and ignorant.
But again, you can decide, and your experiences may honestly differ from mine. I'm quite sure there's good, honest, selfless, happy, confident conservatives that work there also.
To contrast my Mars interview experience; I was also turned down by HMUA for a job. But am not bitter at all with them because the Director there understood me, explained to me his position, and was sympathetic to my and others problems finding meaningful employment.
Not so at Mars.
It's ok though, I'd rather not work for that company now. I don't need their particular dictatorial style of BS employment or their employees conservative BS onslaughts.
I know what kind of worker I am far better than they'll ever want to understand, and made my former employer many hundreds of millions of dollars. Plus I liked working for them!
All I know is that I will never ever again buy anything Mars produces, and have a new found understanding of the sweetness of the candy business...they turn some sweet people, bitter.
Get a life... Don't be so angry

I was turned down by Mars too in Petcare in August 2013, but I can tell you it was the most positive interview experience I have ever been through. The people seemed all smart and professional. They paid all of my travel expenses and even gave me a $50 Amex gift card to help reimburse my lunch and dinner. They even asked me to submit any receipts for reimbursement of any costs related to my trip to Tennessee. My experience was so good that I want o continue to pursue a career there, in fact I have an interview at Wrigley next week. I kept in contact with the people on LinkedIn and they referred me to another position that just opened up. Hey, they may or may not hire me but I am sure they will make the right decision that suits the team and organization best. You must always maintain a positive attitude, that is what gets you in the door. Your experience and credentials have nothing to do with your character, and from what I have read in your posting and replies it sounds like you don't deserve to be hired by Mars. Change your attitude and look in the mirror. I know it is frustrating to be turned down, but you will never progress with negativity. Do something good and get over it, move on and most important change your attitude because it will get you no where except to these forums. If you don't need to work stop interviewing with companies and then berate them if they don't hire you, thats not professional nor classy.

Work there 15 years as many others did in IT. In 2010 they dumped hundreds of folks. True it's still a free country and they can do as they please. Loyalty should mean something as the company was exceeding growth expectations (also just purchase Wrigley's for cash).

CIO reads the script from Gartner and CIO magazine. The IT layoffs where not necessary as it was only symbolic gesture by the CIO to show he was not incompetent to the other business units.

Hershey is gaining market share and it's correlated to bad customer satisfaction. Mars Supply Chain, CRM and ERP systems are slowly deteriorating due to the IT group.

CIO will be on seat and prediction is he will be replace within the next year as Hershey starts to dominate.
