Patriot Snacks to Snyders to S-L is the only place where people have taken decreases in pay. No other industry that I know have had ever taken a cut in pay. 20% down to 19.5% now to 18%. Companies have hiring freeze and raise freezes all the time. But never a decrease in pay. Even all the salesmen out there don't have their commissions decreased like S-L. None of that will change. Please stop asking and talking about getting 100% billbacks, or getting 20& across the board for commission. It's not going to happen, so why get upset over it? Suggest things that will make a difference, not cause more anger.

Like stated previously not showing up for meeting, especially when suits are there is a huge statememnt. When you don't go to them, they will come to you. That's what they used to do. They stopped cause not it's more one on one and they don't like to hear all the problems. Like cockaraoches they are stronger in numbers in the meetings. Easier for them to say, "See me after the meeting, we'll talk then." Then they blow you off and you're left pissed off even more. Just stating facts..........

Agreed, I'm personally done with the meetings....nothing gets resolved. Just a cheer leading session to let us know how great Snyders is!

Got my letter of invite for meeting. Margin updates, leveraging new programs, making more money and building equity. Those are the topics being presented.

Not paying for promotions was one of the best things about working for SOH before the merge. SOH always absorbed 100% of the promo cost and Wise went along. A good move by them because back then, before the bogo hysteria hit, nobody would push Wise because you couldn't sell a bag when it wasn't on sale.

I am selling my route to someone and he is paying cash. Does this person write me the check or does it have to go to snyders first and then to me. I own the route free and clear with no loan. Thanks

If it is Mandatory, we should be paid the day pay for it, I believe that is 100.00, because meeting are optional.

This will be the perfect time for your area to NOT show up and make a huge statement. Mgmt reads this forum and rewrites the memo saying the President will be there and it will be mandatory just to reassure IBO's attending. Like how S-L uses the contracts all the time to side with them you should also throw it back in their faces. No where does it say IBO's HAVE to be at meetings. And again, look at the time they want you to stop working and attend their meeting. Their time, their convenience. Time to make a statement fellow IBO's. Cause whether you show up or not all you're gonna get are paperwork to sell more. So if you don't go you think mgmt will not give you the paperwork in your mail boxes? If you don't have the info, you can't sell and make money for S-L.

Are you out of Columbus? I am, don't think I'll waste my time and gas money to drive to Grove City to listen to the crap they will try to sell! Like they said on here, you will get paperwork on anything "important" that is said in that meeting.

I'm in West Virginia, I have to go to Winfield, something is up cause everyone is having the same meeting at the same time. Kind of like when we were huddled into a holiday inn and told we were going from company routes to IBO
