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

Good advice! Ten years ago you could make a good living running 6-7,000 a week.. Now With Snyders way of doing business you have to average at least 10,0000@ week. Route payment , truck payment, fuel and insurance costs. And with Snyders only paying you back 81% on the PA,s makes it extremely difficult to survive . If you have a family forget it!

And running 10000 every week is no picnic! It's a lot of work especially when you take into account you get no benefits, no help. So I have no problem running the business to benefit me because Snyders-Lance does zero to benefit me. That mindset makes it bearable. They have earned no respect from me mainly because of their initial lying (and continued lying) about saying the commission would be 20%. Until they fix that they deserve every problem and misfortune they get. I fill shelves. That's what I do. I get paid ok for it. If that's what they wanted that's what they got. If you want real salespeople then you need to pay them. Carl Lee making 2 million behind the throne does NOTHING to build business. Putting that money into space or into programs that would drive business does. Too much fat at Snyders-Lance. Everyone knows it - nobody does nothing about it. So until we have a change in focus or leadership learn to get by on what you run.

Well said Wharf! There a lot of IBO's that feel the same way . Unfortunately they are afraid to say anything for fear of retribution . I , personally get the big freeze from management because of my comments on here. So be it, if I can't express my opinion to bad for them. The IBO's do the bulk of the work and make the bulk of the money for the company. And yet we get treated the worst, low commissions, bad warehouse hours, etc. Like you I fill shelves and keep my customers happy, management might not like that because they can't make their bonuses. There is an easy way to fix that . Bump the margins up and stop treating us like employees

yep I am a shelf filler too, for now, since I am at the crack of COD - I barely run $3000 a week. the commission rates are such a joke. and the kicker - its not in the contract, the promised rates. nothing about commission is in the contract. the pricing sheet basically breaks it down. but how do I put together a case about something that really isn't in writing? I had to email legal to get the contract and that information because my clueless DM and ZM didn't have it either.

I finally figured out the guessing game of numbers. after the PA for WalMart it comes out to about a 13.5% margin on HP. the contract clearly states we get an 18% cut, but also says we cover 18% of the PA - which in turn is about 4% of our profit margin.

you are clueless it doesn't matter how much allow they give you are getting back 82% of it so your overall margin is about 16.3% gross or 18% net. You need to sell because you haven't got a clue!!!!!!!!!!

Guys if you honestly do try out there, but are unhappy about something, speak up. The fear of them replacing u if you speak your mind is crazy. You see how long it takes to sell a route. Imagine if they had to do it 2-3xs a district, Won't happen, they thrive on this fear, don't let it detour you from speaking your mind (respectfully)

i don't agree with your paranoia about retribution if u speak up, but I love your comment about the warehouse hrs. They have all these reasons why we cant load whenever we want (thinking we wont out in a full day) however it does not make sense , we are 100% commission. Y would we not sell every case we could! Makes 0 sense

We are treated as employees, told what to do and no respect for what we bring to the company. If I want to start at 6,7,8,9,10am . It's my business and if my accounts are serviced its none of managements business , but they feel otherwise

Yes snackman its net! what you sell!, how do they not get it. You make 19 cents on the dollar that you sell. Have these people ever been in business ????? Sounds like these people complaining on here want there sales served to them on a silver platter? I can't take these old car salesman's or union people!!!
