"I’ve worked at various C&S locations including two Grocer Supply facilities. Both companies are committed to providing exceptional customer service at competitive rates."
"C&S is currently undergoing tremendous change. They recently laid off hundreds of people, some of whom were with the company for less than a year."
"I worked for C&S Wholesale Grocers for over 10 years working my way up from entry level to upper management. This is a company that will allow anyone who is willing to move up into the management team."
"Great company to work. Lots of growth opportunities if you are smart."
"I work for C&S Wholesale Grocers since November 2019. It is a great company with a lot of benefits and career opportunities. The company has great values and leadership team."
"Worked with C&S Since 2015"
"Aggressive hourly employees, HIGH TURNOVER Management as well as hourly employees. Long hours because of call-outs (management as well as hourly employees) No Life work balance, scheduled meetings without no consideration of management that worked off-going shifts, meeting sometimes canceled with no notification. No growth potential, some tenured management employees not paid on current scale (underpaid) while new management members are giving higher salaries coming in the door. Theft of personal property and lunches is the norm if you leave them in the common areas. Unresponsive upper management as well as HR department to ongoing security and safety risks. Night-shift employees coming back from lunch under the influence of drugs and sometimes alcohol. Unsafe Work Environment."
"Family based company fast paced long hours"
"The company is going through a lot of changes."
"Left another employer to come here with the hope that hard work and strong work ethic would be key in growing within the company. It couldn’t have been further from the truth. Besides questionable practices by the company overall & immediate supervisor, manager and some others, the day to day became more than any decent person could take. Enjoyed working with many of those in my department Office politics & rampant favoritism was a downer."
"If you're up to making money and you're a very hard worker, C&S has great opportunities. The drawbacks are that you really have to prove yourself on the job. If you slack off, you wont' get far. If you push it, you have to work at least a year to get recognized and even then you'll merely get a pat on the back."
"Overall it's a great company but that doesn't matter when you get paid peanuts. It's unfortunate that some positions are payed so horribly, especially when people work their butts off and do all they can to get noticed for a higher position. People here are just greedy and only care about themselves. As a college graduate with student loans, an apartment, bills, etc... how does this company expect you to support yourself and family by making $12 an hour?"
"Key to a strong organization is effective communication and identifying needs that were unmet. Strong organizations don't have to foster environments when plans and policies are met with dealing with challenges by effectively implementing solutions."
"Even with all the challenges, this used to be a great place to work with a lot of opportunities to grow and learn. The most recent regime changes over the past couple of years have changed IS into what will soon be a non-responsive out-sourced pool. It's too bad. It really was great to work for, for many years."
