While I totally don’t disagree with the statement below ! While employed with Keebler they brung us all out to a hotel , fed us , gave us new iPhones and training only to can pretty much all of us 6 months later ! So just because you get a new iPad and training does not mean we are here to stay ..thats only another link in the chain to be in place for the new changes (warehouse ) when it happens
I still believe we are years away from any big moves with dsd. With new tablets and new app system coming In 3rd quarter this year I think dsd is still solid for now.
Obviously this would be to cut costs. Why do you think they wouldnt love to get rid of some reps
I’m in the Great Lakes region we are still normal routes with only 8 to 12 depending on store size. I don’t see that coming our way. They would have to layoff a bunch of reps to make this happen as well.
i left almost a year ago......i had 23 stores in four counties....just a regular territory and one of my friends had 24, so none of this is news but rather business as usual
Guy with 18 stores here. We are in the first week of this. So idk how my schedule is playing out because this isn’t the iDeploy schedule that was posted Friday. They told no one. I look at my schedule come Monday and most of everyone on our team has gone up in store count. I’m spread across I’m spread across 9 different counties. 9! We’ve had 3 super territories on our team before this. When I talk to the reps over them, they tell me they havent even step foot in most of their stores. And this has been since January.
I don’t believe this will ever go past a test area. We have done them before and failed. If dsd was changing at all this year we would of heard news by know. We have all new tablets coming in next few weeks and a new sales app going live July 1st.
Was known as territory manager. Huge failure. But that was when we had pride as a company. No pride today
To the person that just got 18 stores, are you part of the test group?
Are you merchandising a lot, writing mostly orders, or what?
I am in the south east region. My territory just went from 12 stores to 18.
I was a part of the original test years back....beginning of the end. Not about ordering, about taking pics this time around.
I never see this happening. We did this years back and it never worked.
