Pros: good benefits, great meeting customers and helping them.
Cons: no breaks or lunch sometimes. bad work environment. unpaid hours
I could go on with all my emails, text messages, and pictures that show how bad this companies image and lack of work ethic is .- But I'll just talk about how my former bosses did not answer their phones or give any help with complaining customers ( Ralphs, independent stores, gas stations, etc) because of shipment problems, display problems, not enough – more... merchandising problems, etc. I had one merchandiser everyday for my 4 Ralphs, 2 vons, the #1 pavilions #2739 (atleast 800 cases a week) 2 bristol farms, 1 gelsons, 1 smart n final, 1 target, 1 kmart, 6 cvs, the #1 walgreens 6445 (60 cases week) and 1 riteaid. I had to merch stores everyday and sell to some of my other 100+ small format stores. I did it, not to many complaints from me, until I noticed I was missing money on every check since I took over the route. I received 2 commissions reports in my 3 1/2 years with DPSG. (we were told we would get one every week). On it I noticed I was not getting paid for some delivered items. I told my boss, HR, and my branch mgr about this for 3 months Aug- Nov 2013. They told me I was crazy, then they finally found "the glitch" and that DPSG owed me $1200. After I was paid I was written for an incident that happened on my day off and then fired. One more illegal thing- my old boss made me drive my truck into the LA branch loading door and fill my truck with a load that was not shipped by simi truck. So the Warehouse mgr loaded a pallet in my 85 toyota pickup (I have pics) with soda, water, etc. I drove down the street where the load fell out of my truck onto the street (more pics avail).
One more thing- For at least one year overtime was paid by a %. Sometimes I made $6 an hour x 12 hours for any giving week. Sad and maybe illegal. – less
