It's going to be a big shock for the FSA street reps when USF takes over. Weekly ride-withs and heavy micromanagement by district sales managers, Salesforce, big push to get customers to order online and to sell Scoop to everyone whether they want/need it or not.

Will be very interesting to see which DM's remain once the acquisition if final. Same with VP - the one at USF or the one at FSA in markets where they are both present - specifically Seattle and Denver and Dakota's.

Portland FSA is probably safest because USF has virtually no street presence. I suspect the sales team will be kept in tack for the most part except for maybe the VP of Sales.

Not true.  I have a ride along maybe once a month.  I talk to my DSM maybe twice a week.  Ordering online is better than taking orders.  I hate scoop.

Spoken like a true order taker! Not many, if any, True Sales People would make a comment like that.

It wasn't sarcasm.  

It saves me a ton of time to get everyone ordering online.  I visit them all once a week.  Frees up time to prospect and get all the tedious salesforce bs done.  Im making great money and I have quality of life that I never had in the kitchen.  Judge away it works great for my style of selling.

You have bought into the future, necessary as it is, let the ole dawgs chew on the bone until retirement. Ours was a great run with lots of fun and success, we all hate to see it go but such is life. Good luck and much success in your future!

Chew on da bone? Hell the old guys are enjoying Prime Steak and Lobster.
The young managers keep throwing it out and the old dogs keep producing. The young pups cannot learn to get their tails out from between their legs and go sell.
You have to love this business.

Us old guys built this industry. A lot of younger people, especially in management, tend to forget that this is still a relationship business. We hope you'll take care of our accounts when we are all retired.
