Again, I've already had a meeting that was pretty much useless. This one is next month regarding our settlements. If anyone has one about this topic feel free to share. I will when mine comes.

Even if invited I wouldn't go to the meeting unless I felt there was iminent change on the horizon. I, like most of you, do not trust Snyder's and I haven't for many years. I recall nothing in all my years that really benefitted me, the route saleperson. It always benefitted them. I seriously doubt they will change. A leopard does not change its spots.

Understanding how to read the settlement statement will teach you how to get paid, again nothing to do with sales growth.

My dealings with SL has always been honest and straight forward, they supply the product you must manage to be profitable. It is straight forward, you don't control inventory, your income is tied up in inventory.

They did spent a lot of time on HOW to read settlements...as if we are morons and can't figure it out..it's all smoke and mirrors boys...plain and simple. They gloss it over with fake sympathy for the IBO's . When it came to covering 100% of the PA's they shut it right down. A complete waste of time!!!

Problem is this...none of the management team that attended the meeting were never route people. It's very easy to sit there and tell us how good we have when they have absolutely no clue how tough it is out on the field. Walking in a store and looking at a shelf does not make you an expert! I would love to switch positions with them for 6 months...I would bet they could not deal with not only the financial aspects of running your business but also the physical part.

The best statement we can make is NOT showing up to any meetings. Mgmt gets hard ons when the meetings are full. When IBO's don't show up that's when mgmt gets furious. They will tell you that meetings are mandatory. Let them show you in the contract where it says that. Nowhere. They just love to hear themselves talk and speak nonsense. How IBO's are the foundation of any company, but yet they don't do a thing to help with any financial situation.

In Foxboro, MA IBO's had meetings where only 12 people out of 30 showed up with coporate there. No words necessary with the disappointment from coporate to mgmt. Make a statement by not going. Guarantee you get mgmt's attention then.

Past repeats the future. All the meetings are for mgmt to spew all about the growth, the new products that come out (which there's paper form to read about), and how for you, the IBO, to push and make more money. SSDD: same s***, different day. Why waste your time, and money? Ooooh, they might buy you pizza..........

I totally agree with you. We had meeting here and many of us never showed up. The times were condusive to us. It was during loading times or earlier. It's because they have an itinerary and that's all. They always say they will open up to questions right> When all the concerns are asked, they can't answer. They give you the "we'll get back to you" routine. Which we all know they don't and it's all forgotten. Time to push back IBO's. For all you IBO's that think things will change for the better? You got sold, just like your moneymaking route. Band together and make a statement. It might take awhile, but if you can get underneath their skin it's a great feeling. S-L made it us vs them attitude.

Nothing will change unless it benefits S-L . They will tell you that you signed the contract so to bad for you! That us basically what we were told at the " round table meeting" ! When the question of getting 100 % of the PA's back that is when they said to read the contract that you signed. Another words " stick it up your ass"

You really are having pipe dreams. If you think there will be positive changes, you are sadly mistaken my friend. I have been through one of those round table meetings. Nothing but blowing smoke up our ass.

Maybe maybe not, my source is different from his source and from two different zone level people in two different zones.
