Distributor (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 31 August 2018
You make 14% on everything you sell. Pay for all displays. Account for 100% of your stales. Rent a storage facility for the product YOU ordered. And then there's the truck. A financial money pit. Gas insurance repairs parking if you can't keep it at home.. Yearly safety. Its commercial vehicle. Then there is the possibility that your display racks will get kicked out of a store andl lose all the business because Voortman won't pay for space. I got sucked in by the sexy of owning your own business. Dont be fooled! You will be disappointed.
Distributor (Current Employee) – Kentville, NS – 15 January 2014
I have worked as a distributor for Voortman Cookies and its your decision on how it will work for you! If you are a self motivated person who can establish a good relationship with customers and have the ability to sell and service them, you can succeed with Voortman Cookies. You need to find the right market in every store, have the ability to know the limits of every store and realize the potential available with constant service. Voortman Cookies is a growing company with many years under its belt....this doesn't mean they just wing it....and I believe this to be true as an employee. I have always had support when I needed it from management by just a simple phone call or actual visit. For me I make each day a new day and anticipate great results....meeting the receivers, managers and customers is a highlight.....sales in the end are good because of your positive nature.
work monday to friday, usually home by late afternoon or by supper, make your schedule work for you as long as your customers are happy, ability to spend time with my family, know that as long as I am selling I am making money for myself
sometimes alot of road time, somedays can be long, sometimes tight deadlines
Territory Rep (Former Employee) – New Brunswick – 16 October 2013
This company does not operate "above board". They have the perfect operating strategy for themselves with zero risk of product loss, leaving all expenses and claims in the hands of their distributors. Managers are trained to sell, sell, sell, as a result of this zero risk strategy. Trying to sell your territory is like trying to leave a cult. They hold back pay, territory costs and like to devalue the territory in order to bleed you dry. Stay clear.
