Great place to work
Learned how to be fast and accurate with your times in dealing with a customers food and to get there order out as fast as possible. Helping others was a A+ for the workplace. Dealing with customers you had to greet them politely and smile and wear your uniforms correctly to represent the place in a well mannered way, nothing hard about the workplace but most enjoyable thing is working to help others and making the workplace a great name.
Pros
Work dos at the end of the year
Cons
Good hours for work

Forner TSM
The grocery channel one time was led by a phenomenal group of folks,It is sad to see how far down this organization has fallen. Leadership preaches the five principles but do not live by them. There was a reorg, in 2017/18. Grocery was then led by a GVH. SMH, this individual should not be in management. He has his RM micromanage the teams, GVH belittles associates in public and shows favoritism, Your asked for feedback but only as long you don;t say what's wrong. Any issues are always placed on TSMs,
Your treated like a child but expected to work like a machine. If you are disliked but your numbers are solid, they will dig deep in hopes of finding dirt on you.There is absolutely no diversity what so ever,

Unless you kiss GVH butt or any of the other so called line managers.

There is only one original RM who is gold. And one other newer RM in NE that are decent.

Pay is great, Management is a joke. A few of is went to work for competitors who value you and allow you to do what you need to be successful.

Unique company culture
Family owned business with very strong core principles.
Associates are valued and given growth opportunities.

The Petcare segment is exciting and offers career building challenges. Pets wellbeing and product satisfaction are really the most important things on every associate's mind at the Columbus Wet Petfood site.

Arnotts is run differently. I deal with a Rep and only know things through her. Pay rise are few and far between.
I would like to feel confident that asking question to enable me to be trained in my job is alright. To be part of a team and have some flexible to be able progress in the company. Opportunity to buy if there is anything to offer. I have been lucky and get on well with everyone in the company. If I had a problem, I was listen to and felt that it would be resolved and not swept under a rug.
Pros
Samples, free lunches, breakfast or coffee. petrol allowance
Cons
Working days and nights

Great place to work just not enough hours
Great thing I loved about working their was you learn how to work fast and work as team. Its all about providing great quality that is Pet Food for customers to buy. The hardest thing about the Job was lifting the pallets and stacking the boxes of 12 high or 24 high onto the pallets. The enjoyable thing about the Job is having a great team at work and having a laugh while packing the pouches in to theie boxes.
Pros
work dos
Cons
long hours at work
