Dce is right even if you owned a pepperidge farm right or any other route if you can't run it you will have to pay some one else to do it ... This ain't obummer and the us government where hands outs is the norm , they do make short term and long term disability insurance u know .

As I read many of the comments on here with a very open mind, I tend to see valid points among some but through the rest I see a lot of finger pointing that I would say is in the wrong direction. I've been with the company for 4 years and became an IBO 2 years ago. I'm the only income that comes in to my house to support 4 kids and a wife who does not work and hasn't for 13 years to raise our kids. I've put 1 child though Catholic High School at a cost of $8600 a year. I've managed to eat good food not smack ramen and mac n cheese. Paid my $1300/month mortgage,$450/month vehicle payment all on my earnings @ S_L. I bought my territory @$8400 wk avg and built it up to over $11000 wk avg. I did over $580,000 in business last year and kept my stales just a little over $4000. I'm not saying that this is a get rich quick business but when the route is paid off and the extra $1200 month is in my pocket it will be so much better. It is an investment and yes YOU are responsible for your injuries, sickness, vacations, because you are the Owner.
I see more people complaining that act as if they are still employed by Snyders.
Could things be better like 20% commission, budget on stales, and others. But from what I see they are moving in the right direction and this will take time to make it as close to mutually satisfying as it can be.
Stay positive, build relationships with your customers, have fun, and make money.

I started back in 2003 with Lance and at the time it was not a great job. They got better and better, and especially at the end it was a GREAT job. What we have now aint perfect, but yall don't have to do this. Yall act like you're chained to S-L. The main problem is the ones of you who have turned the entire topic all 248 pages of it into a cry fest. Its great you think it sucks you're all pretty pathetic to keep putting up with it if that's how yall really feel.
Mine's not great but I'm making a living. I just don't see how 248 pages of whining about it instead of walking out can be productive for anybody. I hate some of the things they do and think I should be making more but when I get to the point that I'm like the handful that troll here every night I'll just find another damn job.

When do you think you're going to get the route paid off Pinkeye? The way these contracts are structured, it's like,,,,Never. Are you paying for healthcare for your family of 6 and how about funding your retirement?

Pinkeye - you are a liar straight up!! Then quit - you should have quit - you're a knucklehead. Snyders love guys like you - you're both probably working 7 days a week. I'll sell you my route 20:1 - interested??

All I did was tell the truth. Yall read what you wanted to. The main point is how pathetic the handful of yall that get on here and troll around whining make yourselves look. At some point you have to man up and just find something else to do. If its as bad as yall say then apparently you all are too proud to sell French fries and flip burgers since you'd rather continue to be treated the way you think are. I mean seriously its so bad to yall that you have to troll 248 pages here and make yourselves look bad instead of just finding another job. Most are far enough in where a sell at least lets you leave clean, I know some have gotten checks although not saying anybody has broken even considering what has been paid in weekly. You don't have to do this, or maybe you just cant do anything else??

Seriously?? So the fact we paid good money for a business means we don't have the right to try and make things better.... Get a grip "yall"... there are serious issues that we , as independent distributors , would like to corrected ... If you don't like hearing those issues them maybe you should get the hell this forum
