    Pros

    Work at your own pace, very easy work, do not really have a lot of supervisor looking over your shoulder

    Cons

    Some of the other employees were not great workers and did not put in a lot of effort

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be stricter rules so routes are not getting so messed up and larger consequences to employees who do not follow rules. Look to Pepsi their Merchandisers and Sales Reps work together and work more efficient
