If you actually believe you are still out there,"doing the same thing", you are delusional and living in denial. The path to the end of DSD is clear, you must be blind!

Oh really? Well the same cr-p proved itself last year during the "Optimization" when SRs and SSRs were indeed laid off last year. The pathway is clearly wide open for DSD to slowly end and it's quite obvious if you have ever actually worked the front line and/or talked to fellow vendors (SRs and Merchandisers) of other companies like Keebler years ago. Within my territory in Tennessee I see more SSRs taking the role of both SRs and Merchandisers, hiring fewer PT merchandisers, and putting a heavier work load on the loyal employees while coddling to the few new hires letting them get away with below the bare minimum requirements. That and employees are finally catching on that moving up the ladder within this company is only a dream unless nepotism steps in, you're a fresh college grad or a very naive diot that can be indoctrinated into management's propaganda so they can maintain their unnecessary job position of being lazy and shiftless in tgeir tasks. The well will eventually run dry to the point where even btt kissers like yourself cannot escape. Time to wake up.

There are laws that require notice when laying off a large number of people. The other companies paid out a LOT of money to retain there help till DSD ended for them, don't think you'll get that, you won't!

Ask the Cadbury reps how much notice they were given when they lost their jobs...less than 1 day!

Told them all there's a conference call at noon, and then gave them all the ax, without any notice!

Now of course the Cadbury reps saw the signs, and already knew they were going to lose their jobs, they just weren't sure when.

Cadbury rep called me up, told me he thought he was losing his job due to a conference call that day. Then he called me after the conference call and told me he lost his job.

NO NOTICE, HELLO, NO NOTICE!.

The signs are all here that DSD is DONE, just don't know when.

Big announcement but it wasn't what I expected.

Post ID: @9wtg+1eYGiuOW

Maybe it's more than purging a few sales reps. Pretty sure there is no law saying when an announcement has to be made and when the terminations have to take place. If I remember right the last 2 companies that decided to be more fiscally responsible gave their dsd associates roughly 6 months notice.

Wait and see. Maybe the announcements don't affect your area. Again, there is more to Mondelez than Sales. Aka Cracker Stackers.

GS always has a call scheduled by now if more changes were happening this year. 2022 will be nothing new maybe next year.

Mondelez informs employees of impending changes at the very last possible minute to avoid a mass exodus.

This is so they can give you the boot when they are done with you, not the other way around.

The company doesn't want to give you any time to consider what's going to change, and if you still want to work here or not.

They'll let YOU know when THEY are done with YOU.

We continue to be the tax write off. NA numbers were bad enough to use them in a 2 year average so they don't appear as bad. Big sell off after hours.

Yes, businesses are in the market to make money.."at all costs" is the caveat. This was the philosophy at one time, but no longer.
The trend to make sure your employees are happy has become very important. Mondelez management has a reputation of doing the opposite, treating people like dirt. They rely on the "David vs Goliath" attitude, people won't touch them because they are far too big. WRONG! They have settled so many cases "out of court" and lost the one's taken to court. That in itself is a gross insight into things and how management treats its employees.
If a few "bad apples" spoil the bunch, time to clean house Dirk!

In Canada they changed our medical insurance provider.. Absolutely no change to the benefits they said.. Bu-----t, in many instances we have to pay more out of pocket. So Mondelez saves money with a cheaper provider on the the backs of employers.

Post ID: @pft+1eYGiuOW

What to expect???

I EXPECT Mondelez to keep making more and more money while all the employees busting theirs as--s, and putting their lives on the line make LESS and LESS.

Are you kidding???

Hello???
