I tried the attorney general and they said i need to take it up with the department of labor about unfair and unethical business practices. Guess i'll call them and see if they can help me, you guys have any other suggestions?
Not sure of your location. Are you around any Journalism school's like a college? See if you can contact one of the students. For $100 the student might be willing to do research for an article. We all could write the article but an outside party is best. Send his research to the paper, Attorney general, the grocery store buyers that you service. Who knows the skies the limit. What about the law students? Unethical Business practices have been hounded on in the media. The big CEO makes millions and the workers make nothing.
I saw the light and left after my route was purchased back.
Good luck.

I sure don't miss the crap that snyders plays with people lives. I took my money and ran. Still didn't get all the money that they promised me to start with but over all not to bad. I like to look on here and see everyone bitching. This company has done business like this for many years and no one has been able to do anything about it, I sure hope that someone one here can make some progress. The routes in this area aren't filling up to fast either, routes are priced to high, for todays market. THe route that I bought a little over a year ago went from 42000 to over 100. That is a big difference, you cant get the product that you order and not enough wise to fill the shelves, people are loosing space in stores. The people that were looking at buyin routes, now see that they dont want this bullshit, and are just staying untill they find another REAL JOB. I feel so much peace now that i am gone, wishing all you guys the best.

I agree with Kim... I was doing my taxes for the last 6 months of working for Snyders for 2011 and the bad memories all came back to me. Just a terrible experience and left an empty pit in my stomach. Snyders is a disgusting company! I would rather collect aluminum cans on the side of the road or cut grass, as long as I never have to deal with that company again.

Does anyone know what the new commission rates will be for 2011....we were told that our routes would be sold to us in May or June.....just curious if anyone has any info. Thanks!
So, did you get a route? My husband has worked for Lance for almost 10 years and got the SHAFT when it was time to assign routes! I hope this company crashes and burns!

The plot thickens... Just heard 3 distributors walked off their routes at the Largo, Florida warehouse and more are threatening. All district managers are on routes (reference my user name)! On top of that one distributor reported that the warehouse had 48 out of stocks. Now wonder they are about to get kicked out of Sweetbays! Let's all give a big round of applause to the douchebag Bob Ormsby for creating the mess.... And kiss my ass too Matthew for backing that piece of crap!

Just came about from the lance side and I Love my route but hate how snyder pays usand treat the I/O . The Best way to get our point across to s/l is very easy . Pick a day get the post and emails out and have a 2 day walk out . (pack out your route and leave backstock in your stores to do Pullup) and for monday and tuesday do pullups ..If a avg route does $1500 perday X 2. and if we could get just 500 driver across the US to do it S/L would chit at there end of day reports along with the district managers they just lost $1,500,000.00 In sells and if could get more drivers But we would have to send a letter to the CEO letting them know why and what changes we are asking for .

Hilarious, I know the Big O was out to get you, but any post criticizing the pathetic prior management can't be said without mentioning the AA baseball player. He was just as instrumental in letting go 4 experienced IO's as the Big O. O got demoted and banished to remote sections of FL but the AA baseball player still has his job. Why?? Matthew, your job with S-L is on the line. Morgan already got the big job over you. It's time to get rid of unqualified former minor league baseball players before they drag you down.

Matthew, you had a Largo IO apply for the DM job 2 if not 3 times. He has substantial experience in the business before he even came to Snyder's. He got rejected every time. To a man, every IO in Largo thought he was a great choice for the company. Instead you brought in a hatchet man from an ice cream co and a AA baseball player who showed his loyalty to the company by QUITTING 7 years ago. When he found out what it was like on the other side he came crawling back. This person, with NO experience in the field and who has NO CLUE how to deal with blue collar workers was hired. Now, your formerly most profitable warehouse is in shambles. The price you pay for hiring the wrong people.

thats for sure they are going to to restructure your route like here in frederick maryland .You have to buy your route at multiplier of 14 , they dont care about your old route how much they are going to pay you. This new company is so bad they dont care about the IO AS long as the co. Makes money better watch out . You won't get the real information.

This is the most screwed up mess I have ever been involved in. And, local management is very weak and cannot explain how the system works. After a number of IO's owed the company a lot of money, they started a very weak training class. At this point the conversation among IO's is to start a lawsuite against the company.

That's what rellly happened here in Maryland and Virginia being an IO for more than 20 years , they get my old route at a multiplier of 8 and now they are sellimg the new route at multiples of 14 . For being fair they should pay my old route old at times 14 because that's the fair market value that they use when buying the new route. We should join together across the country to file a class action suit , this company getting so greedy they dont care about the IO even we are the money maker " because we are expendable " .

Another thing that will happen you have to sign a cofidentiality agreement and intention to buy . Average per route is $8400 but in reality its to hard to get . When you add your whole week sale doesn't match with your profit check it is because we are now paying part of the promotion , means less money for us . Hopefully share holders of this co. will read this , if you know anybody who is share holder let them know what's going on or if you know from press or media ask their help , or even your politician in your area please do so .
