That's the official day that dsd is ending! You heard it here first. Good luck all! I am so relieved to finally have the truth told to me.
Topics regarding layoffs at Mondelez International Inc.
Makes me sad there's so much speculation amongst us all given so many people see signs of impending change, but there's no information from the company.😔
Just heard a warehouse in CT is closing April 2020 and product will come from some new state of the art warehouse in NY.
I dread going to work day and look over my shoulder as the management on my team have it out for me. They are all bull c-appers. This company only cares about there bottom line. We don’t have a name with this company we are just a dollar... — read more
Let’s see what the organization does with this post! Since they have had posts removed that were untrue.....warehouse coming!!
Mondelez has been quietly closing sites in its DSD delivery model for years. I worked at a high volume, very efficient nabisco branch outside of the biggest city in WI for years until they shut it down in 2017. We were not the first closure or the... — read more

Has anybody had trouble hitting their bonus?
In 2019 Mondelez was the 20th largest food company in the US. Of the 19 larger than us, guess how many are warehouse! 🤣🤣Nope, we are not too big! Kellogg is bigger, Nestle is bigger, and there are plenty more that are warehouse! The “we are too big”... — read more
Anyone has facts? How many people work at the main office at Deerfield?
Jyve merchandisers will be throwing Nabisco orders at Joe V’s grocery stores in Houston area. Jyve will also throw Coke and Frito Lay product as well. DSD is done!!!
Some companies already get their products from middle men like them which would obviously become the alternative to warehouse delivery once DSP is cut.

So discouraging and also disgusting to work for a company that prides themselves on values, yet has close to $30 million dollars of penalties! Ouch! Practice what you preach! And the SEC hasn’t even gone after the whole issue of ghost trucks! That’ll... — read more
I can’t see the company leaving dsd, I think if they did it would be a mistake. The stores can’t take care of there own product, I can’t see them take care of ours.
What are your thoughts about potential Mondelez Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Was just grocery shopping and ran into a pepp farm rep I used to share some stores with a long time ago. He asked if I was still with “nabisco” and I answered. His comment was,” they have quite the reputation for being jerks to their employees”! 🤣... — read more

Fiscal year starts in April for Mondelez. Announcement is coming soon. 60 day's notice required by law. Walmart and Kroger contracts are up in 2020. DSD is an outdated system. These stores require 7 day's service and we don't provide that. Stores are... — read more
Numerous months ago basically the entire cookie/cracker line at Walmart had a dramatic price drop. These are not rollbacks, they are massive, permanent price cuts. I guess my thoughts were is this the price they are going to be after they cut out the... — read more

Anyone else have these labcoats walking around taking asset inventory? Makes me nervous. Feel like 2020 could bring the closure of more plants or the sale of some brands.
More than half of the Wilkes Barre building will lose their job by the end of 2020 unless a major change occurs. The writing is on the wall. If you interact with the folks of Wilkes barre like I do. You will be working with an outsider or a third... — read more

Curious as to how everyone's stores are looking. For me at this point it's coming back to where it was before EDI, just with more steps involved. A lot of calls to customer care to remove stupid product lines from orders, and sometimes just outright... — read more
Told my DM this morning I’m putting my two weeks in effective November 5 I’m done with this company. I already feel like a cloud has been lifted. Can not wait till the new adventure begins
Mondelez keeps doing damage control by trying to convince us through conference calls, meetings, etc, that DSD is not ending, despite so much evidence that it is. The more they try to "convince" us DSD is not ending, the more I'm convinced it is. My... — read more
I’ve been following this site for some time now, just reading posts. It’s finally time to say something for me..... Wake up!! People are working very hard to spin things, to make them feel that their jobs are safe! If they spent this time being more... — read more
DSD “has been”, a thing of the past. In the end, it is ultimately up to the retailer to decide since the cost of dsd is built into their contracts, it’s certainly not free. Since most consumers get to choose what they buy, the retailers (wal Mart and... — read more

First let's list the facts, then let's see if any of us can cite a reason other than DSD ending for each fact. (Anyone feel free to add to my list) Wal Mart and Kroger now have locked EDI orders. Shelf facings are down after latest big... — read more
It s—s knowing layoffs are a certainty but not knowing when it'll happen. It's like Mondelez is intentionally trying to increase our stress levels in hopes we'll leave on our own. To be honest, this might be working on me - I've been so stressed... — read more
