Revolving door at senior sales management.
Southeast Division Manager, Foodservice (Former Employee), Moncton, NBApril 7, 2014
Pros: great benefits. great products.
Cons: no job security. no tools to respond to competitive environment.
When market conditions are in balance with inventory and margins this is a great company. However, company does not respond well to competitive environment when things are not in balance. Usually a losing season in terms of meeting fiscal budget will result in changes in senior management.

Forklift Driver
Forklift Driver (Former Employee), New Annan, PEJune 23, 2012
Fast pace, always try to find something to do.
I learned a lot, How to get along well with others, how to comunicate with others, and admit when you are wrong. Management and the floor need to associate more, management seemed to be better then employees. They never seemed to have the time for employees. Getting a job posting was difficult because management didn't want certain people move up the ladder. I loved my job, i enjoyed working with people in general i enjoyed working with Cavendish.
