Honestly the DM's we have are useless. They ask for opportunities, you pass them along and nothing gets done. Now the bonus goal has been increased to 15 and 20 percent. If you are running your route properly day in and day out there is no way to reach those goals.

Bonus program is a joke! Big winner are the region managers on up. As long as Carl Lee is drawing 2 million a year I will never bust my hump to make him any richer. He is responsible for me losing all my benefits it took me 30 plus years to get. He wasn't at Snyders when guys like me built the company and I'm sure he shed no tears for me while he cashes his 40,000 a week average paycheck. I will work for me and my families needs and that only. When he starts investing in me then I will give back. HE can start with giving us the 20% he promised. Until then he can suck eggs!

Well said , couldn't agree with you more! We will never get the 20 %. As far as the "bonuses ". It's nothing but a win, win for Snyders. I just wish more IBO's would see it that way.

<quoted text>they should have never sold a route that could possibly drop to that average. I run 11 to 13 every week. I couldn't imagine trying to juggle profitability with a $3000 route!
the route was quoted to me at $4700 - they added some territory to me last decemeber, and was suppose to add to my route - all it has done is add fuel cost. I want out so bad, but no job has called me for an interview, let alone an offer

I say that all the time u can get 500 new items but if u don't gain space into the stores then new items don't help but all they do is discontinue a few times and we get a few new times into the stores.

What are the 61 new items? Snyder, Lance products or new lines of product, like drinks? Are the 61 new items ones that are out there already in other areas of the country and are only "new" to your territory?

Soooooo ... after reading many of the comments on this thread, I'm assuming most of you wouldn't buy a route from S-L again? I mean, knowing what you all know now? I'm looking into buying a route in Ca and have become increasingly skeptical about the whole thing.
Come on, peeps. What would you do if you were in my shoes?

It's a good gig if you can sell and are not lazy like half the people here. I hope you didn't come from a union or something like that.

what part of California are you in bud? I lived out there for 8 years - at the time, I can almost 100% positively tell you, no stores had any Lance products in them - I am not to sure about SOH stuff, maybe Safeway, Albertsons did. But if you are in the northern part of the state (Sacramento) or above - although their is potentional there I would be real suspect. I know they have been look for a DM out there for 4+ mths. to live out there you need to be well above the $10k a week route average to survive. keep your fuel cost at a min, so don't buy into a huge radius. with the "18%" on grocery items... and the PA - don't buy into it unless its 10k or above
