Sales terrible last few weeks. Lost more space at Walmart cracker reset. Just not caring much at this point. Wonder how many guys feel like me?? Out on an island by myself unless something is deemed important by my boss. Then I hear something. Other than that he had zero to do with me. Learning to just not care.

Yeah sales stink. I asked a Frito guy and he said his sales stink too. No one has any money. They just buy whats on sale and the cheap store brand. I'm so poor I might become a homeless bum soon!

Not true, if Snyder employees worked half as hard as IBO's , instead of golfing and going to sporting events, then maybe we would get the full 19% that we are due. But that will never happen because its easier for you lazy shits to collect your bonuses that you receive for doing absolutely nothing

It's August guys. Don't you know it is the slowest month of the year in most parts of the country? A lot of family $ going to back to school clothes and supplies. Not much left for extras like snacks.

Bonuses that they collect for what WE sell, and pull from the warehouses. The DM's get a bonus on what we pull, if they say they do not it is bull shit.

Why do you think they implemented the rebate program. If we pull more from the warehouse but come up just short, say you come in at 9% growth who wins . The dm gets a nice bonus and we get nothing.This company is a big joke. The new handheld I received has so many problems it is funny. Nobody in route support can figure anything out. They blame it on the software. I say hire some people with degrees to figure it out instead of just hiring people off the street who have no clue how to fix a computer. That's all route support is,they just read off a book and walk you through problems but have no idea how to fix anything.. LOL

Agree. Mine has wiped out 4 times now, could not dex for over a month, and has been reprogrammed 4 times, today it took an hour to punch in an order at the warehouse that should have taken 20. Standard answer, there is a glitch in the system and we are working on it, it sure is worth the 35.00 a week we pay.....NOT

True! The rebate program is just giving back was is rightfully ours! I , personally told them I have zero interest in participating! Let the DM's do the work if they want displays ! I wish more IBO's would do the same, but they think getting a check for 300 is wonderful... Clueless

Yes, I agree. I have no interest in displays. For the second largest snack company in the US we still get regarded as one of the worst. Lose space at every reset. These guys are putting zero back into the market. So zero in - zero out. I'm in when they are in. Until them keep loads low and expenses low. Heck, I'm considering a 4 day week with three day delivery. Anyone else doing that??

And when they sell it, I still dont take it in, this asshole they have going into Walfart and Target selling displays is starting to piss of all of my mangers, and recievers, I am sure he gets a higher commish for selling than we do. When DM asks if I took it in I say sure, but do not.

I was forced out by Snyder/Lance and my branch manager with four months left till I was 62 and could get Social Security...They didn't offer me a route after 22 1/2 years with Lance.........I was bitter for about two weeks but then realized it was the best thing that could happened to me......

Tha was over 18 months ago.........

They combined two very good companies and made one rinky dink company that is the laughing stock of the sales industy......

That is all..........

My story too. Difference was I had only worked for 7 years but I was 61 too. Age discrimination?? Did you get a payoff? I got a nice check to say goodbye. You know if they didn't do that I'd still be working like a slave for them. I hadn't given a thought to retirement. But damn, when it was right in front of me I thought "Hell Yes". I have such a good life now. My friends that still work for them are miserable and can't wait to get out.

No reason to deliver more than 3 days. Losing space at Target, Walmart getting direct shipments, Frito Lay has better prices on holidays and Supervalu stores are dying. My supervalu stores used to do great in the summer. We used to have buy 1 get 1 free that would sell like hotcakes. Now the best they can do is 2 for 4. Sells like crap.

Also, the morale is very low at my depot. Guys constantly complaining about lack of good sales and Synders in general. I know one guy who has a pretty big route and all summer he's been getting back to the depot hours earlier than normal. He said he was "done giving a crap" I think most people have checked out and are just going through the motions. Is the morale better at your depot?
