One of the largest family owned companies in the world with no desire to go public. Very decentralized which works great for speed but difficult for driving change and consistency

TSM (Former Employee) - Field Based Location
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.

QUALITY & FOOD SAFETY TECHNOLOGIST (Former Employee) - Franklin County, OH
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.

Merchandiser (Current Employee) - North Shore and West Auckland
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
