Guys, Snyders Lance must be worried about first quarter earnings cause they are direct shipping a ton of crap the last month into Walmarts. Gotta make sure the stock price doesn't drop due to missed earnings. I think the economy is getting worse again. The last few months have been very hot cold. Unless you have everything onsale, you stuff just sits at Supervalu stores. Economy is not getting better, it's getting worse. Uglyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Yes, it is like that in my stores too, the product sits and sits unless their is a big sale or advertisement, but the dm, doesn't understand that, because he is a douche child. HIs answer, is to load up the stores with new products, so they can sit and stale out toooooo.

if this is a chain account, you will still have to work it. if its a independent cash account, snyders can not make you keep it. you can drop it anytime

We were told that they were considering giving us something to help us out recently. Unfortunately the regional manager told someone that it is basically a "dog and pony show" and that nothing will come of it. I don't know what to think anymore. I would like to see this work but not sure that Snyder's Lance understands any of the issues (or cares) what we are dealing with. Would like to get out but opportunities are slim everywhere. Hate feeling trapped. The whole no vacation or time off is catching up with everyone. We need time off just like everyone else (probably more so) and the way they pay us it is almost impossible for guys to do it. Sucks!!

You will. New software. Works a little better, don't expect increase of speed, but it does run smoother

I just heard today from a Bimbo distributor that a memo was sent from Publix headquarters in Lakeland, FL, to all the stores and to all the vendor companies that service Publix. It states that vendors cannot wear blue jeans, blue jean shorts, t-shirts, and cannot have long hair or any facial hair. I want to wait until I get confirmation before I go ballistic. I can understand a casual dress code but passing judgment on mustache's or goatee's is straight from the 1950's. It's discrimination. If a store tells you you have to shave off your stache or cut your hair get it in writing. I'll be in contact with the ACLU and lawyers to fight for our right to our own personal freedoms and choices.

Depending on the handheld you get, mine crashed last week and My inventory is still screwed up, and it will only dex 1 ticket at a time, and route supportless is a f@*king joke.

Simple solution....give us a straight 20% on ALL products....this means covering the PA the full 100%. If this were done it would give more money to the IO' s to pay someone to run your territory. Money is the crux of most of our issues.

WNY Distrubutor - I agree with you completely - our pay is a joke on the street. It almost begs you to fill shelves only and don't sell promos plus don't put it on the shelf till almost empty to insure good code. Unfortunately Carl lee talking to the DM"s - they will tell him everyhting is ok and the IBO's are just whining - then they will tell him they need a pay increase because they don't have to run routes anymore but have to spend more time in the warehouse to make sure we have product!! LOL

Guys, I just got a bill from my accountant for 1700 bucks! What a joke! How much do you guys pay? Honestly Snyders Lance should cover this for us. It's like flushing money down the toilet
