From my understanding, another major restructure is about to happen. They want SR to only sell and everyone else to only merchandise, while being over 20+ stores. Makes sense for the company, but I feel it's going to hurt the customers (store level). Store management wants to see their sales rep working, not just coming in and ordering and asking for space.

I totally agree with changes are going to happen at some point. Just not this year.
There is going to be changes with the way we work ! Now if that involves reduction of sales force who knows ! But there will be changes made to things
I know it doesnt fit the normal announcement pattern but still think we'll see changes
Not going to lose any this year.
EVERY Year my team loses one person SR
Keebler has many more displays now than they ever had when dsd.
I also agree with this. In our region GS always has his yearly call by now. Nothing from him at this point. I believe same old cr-p this year maybe changes next year.
Agree usually April but could be anytime i would assume
Nothing will happen this year maybe 2023. There would of been some sort of announcement by now. They usually do all changes In April and would of said by now. I would really doubt with 4 weeks to go anything will happen
Hearing same thing , if this includes job cuts then must not be happening in April.
Why "order" from the car? just hit send and let those that know what is needed, the ones that place the computer orders, do it for you? Just hit send and kick back. Having streaming services available on our phones is literally the best part of this job! I'm running out of movies to watch. I've got my resume all ready to roll, did that on company time too! When my boss calls, "I don't have cell service".
Goes both ways.
What does Ukraine have to do with DSD in America or wheat that gets exported to the Mideast?
So how does this affect me when I do the orders from the car
Restructuring was pushed back again due to the Ukraine situation and wheat prices.
Why, what could you possibly be talking about???
According to many "in the know" employees that post on this site, we all would have been notified about impending changes by now.
You mean changes are coming by April???
You don't say...
This is not going to work!!!
The merchandising staff sucks! They do a poor job everyday. If I'm not there cleaning up all their messes these stores will never give me displays due to how cr---y the service without me will be.
Yep, I'm the only one holding this route together.
Where did you get your information?
If what you are saying is true, then some sales reps will have to lose their jobs and routes so the reps left can have more stores.
That is the only way store counts go up on routes. They dissolve territories, people lose their jobs, then the stores from the dissolved routes get redistributed to the sales reps that are left.
Sounds like you are looking for a merchandising role. If you are a merchandiser store management will see you working.
Sales Reps are supposed to Sell. Merchandiers merchandise.
Sale what. Their is no product.
