10% down to buy a route is so Snyders doesn't have to pay as much out when they hold the note.
We can sell the route for any amount if the the person who buys gets funding from someone other than Snyders.

Incentive is...if u increase 10% per quarter on Snyders and Lance product pulled u receive a 1% rebate on total snyders/lance product..15% increase..u receive 2% rebate. That's it..no other pay changes at this time! We were told in a politically correct way that if u feel this is not what u want S-L would talk with u about selling ur route back. Also told us ultimately all that matters is the stock price! Sadly disappointed!!

I'm only 6 months into a route and struggle every week to make money. The meeting here in Dallas is at 1:00 tomorrow. If we are not getting paid on sales, I assure you a for sale sign goes up in this front yard on Monday. It is difficult to work 60 hours a week and not bring home a paycheck. Somehow creditors and wives don't understand that you work all week and don't get paid. Couldn't they at least offer a draw? What a rip-off! The amount I paid for my route included sales from product that was no longer being supplied to 3 of my stores. I have lost space in Wal-Mart, Brookshire's, and now Target. Is anyone looking at why? The leadership is weak and the communication is pathetic. I agree with a strike or boycott. Aging inventory in the warehouse and factory workers being dismissed because demand is down sounds good to me. Maybe that will get someone's attention. Why not unionize if possible. Something must be done!

because they wanna starve you offer you 1 or 2 percent incentive ...(which u should be making in the first place ) don't care if you sell it , sleep on it or give it away as long it leaves the warehouse .. Bottom line is beating numbers , making stock owners happy and the board members making 350,000 a year ! Piss on the ibo's just a cheaper way for them to do business !

With so many of us about to walk this is their way to stop the turnover? All they did was piss us off even more.

Everything that leaves a production facility or warehouse is a guaranteed sell for the company. The equipment leased to us is a guaranteed payment and so is the route payment. They have zero skin in the game as we sell and guarantee their salaries. Some may call it a smart business model for shareholders. I call corporate greed and chicken shit. It truly is a one-sided partnership. Pay us on sales and we would all make money and increase total sales for the company. Why is that so difficult?

Hate to say I told you so. Seen this so many times it isn't funny. This is just a slap in the face to all the guys giving an honest effort. Oh well, they think it was bad before. Carl Lee hasn't worked an honest day in his life. Karma has a funny way of working itself out Carl. Just ask your buddy Singer. Lol

Your comments are right on, but you didn't mention when you sell your route you will pay a processing fee, also when you sell off some stops. Clearly a money maker for S-L.
