Will there be any Mondelez layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?

Yeah I figured ghost PRDs were a logistics issue. It's just funny that unless this issue is caught early by the SR, the company is practically giving free product to the retailers. Yet, we dont have enough budget for labor to send a pt merch service a store for an hour... Also product subbing for warehouse outs is another thing in itself.
"Sticks and stones"! For starters, I don't "throw cookies and crackers", a bit higher up the chain there. It's ok though, but you sound very angry? Maybe a little defensive?
Yes, many PRD's are a local sell, incremental to the plan. They do require a signature from someone in sales. "Ghost PRD's" may be a supply chain hiccup up, especially if there was no paperwork attached. "Ghost trucks" are something far different, maybe something you are unfamiliar with in your role? There is paperwork, just for stores that don't exist. Trucks drive around and then at the end of the day go back to the DC full and the following day are reported as a refusal! WRONG!
The SEC offers $1 million dollars for information leading to the arrest and conviction of this action! Misleading shareholders they don't take lightly.
Anyone at the DC can tell you all about it, half of them don't even know what they are doing is defrauding shareholders.
I've cleared my conscience, I'm good. I've got my millions $, someone will grab it up no doubt! Mondelez management is so sloppy someone will capitalize, lots of loose lips with the drivers who have been more than happy to share.
So how does being told I have to order to hit a number at the end of day fit into this? I've also had ghost prds show up at store with no paperwork or anything and no one has a clue where it was supposed to go or where it came from.
You are d-mb. Plain and simple. You are making up things like "Local Sell". You are living in fantasy land!
You are making wild acusations. If you have proof (which you don't) please do go to the SEC and get your "$1,000,000 Reward".
You need to take your medications and get back to throwing cookies and crackers!
Wrong. Selling in PRD's is a local sell, NOT home office. Yes, a signature is required at the store level. NO, there was none! Product loading is illegal, get your facts straight. Mondelez is monitored by the SEC since it is a publicly traded company. A one off is understandable, but the amount of product loading that occurs at Mondelez is staggering. Whole semis that get deployed at quarter close, to stores that don't exist (heard that from a number of branch employees) to inflate sales. Then the trucks get returned as a refusal the following day. Insane that nobody in the DC's have stepped up to report to the SEC to claim their $1,000,000 award for reporting.
Enjoy your dividends..hahaha! Don't spend all in one place.
remember that someone in walmart's home office signed off on accepting those prds ! stores dont want them and you dont want them but it doesnt matter! its not un lawful, just underhanded!
Making sure stores have inventory is not against the law. Having fully stocked shelves is not against the law. Hiring deadbeats who think they need to give consent to bring in product is criminal and hurts my dividends! You should feel bad that your attitude is reponsible for lower dividends this year.
Sorry but product loading is illegal for publicly owned companies and also against company policy. How about you stop telling us to break the rules and law?
Oh no! You genius! You caught us! Please don't tell the SEC we are selling cookies to stores.
Do enlighten me how the SEC views selling cookies in a store!
As a shareholder I really hope the DM does his job and fires your lazy a-s! You work for me now sell some cookies!!
The writing has been on the wall for a long time! Pay attention.
Haha! You must be in a different part of the country....maybe a different planet???? Deliveries that sit in back rooms for 5 days before they get worked while the shelves sit empty? Seems "just fine" wouldn't be the way I would describe things.
"Hot mess" would be a better phrase here!
"Forcing out PRD's".....well that equates to product loading. Educate yourself on how the SEC views that.
LoL. My DM sent shippers without my consent this is very illegal.
Looks like mondelez is doing just fine with their workforce who has a collective iq just above room temperature
Smart move would be to get out NOW! Even if you were to have to start out making less (which is doubtful in this economic climate), you'd be back within a short time! Why would you stick around until THEY decide your fate? Once you take back control you will feel so much better! I sure did! Got tired of listening to BS and participating in corporate greed! My DM would sit in his home office and send out "residual" shippers to my stores, without consent.
He looked like a hero, while everyone else tried to figure out where they came from. After a number of calls to CC, they figured it out. Not only immoral. how about illegal! Can't do that.
last time they took the guys with the least service because it was cheaper to buy them out
I don't think anyone could say for certain.. However, my gut tells me 2022 will be a rough ride.
