I keep hearing how things will get better, but in
the meantime things go from bad to worse at the House
of Lance. Months ago, many in production were hoping
to get a full 40 hr week. Since Nabisco and
Keebler... 7 days a week, no incentive check for anyone
except chip plant employees and upper management. We now
have to work on the 4th of July...and the bastards
that decided this'll sure as hell be nowhere near
Lance that day. They be out on their yacht or grilling
burgers and dogs, sippin' on a cold one in their
backyard, shooting fireworks.
Why must we work on the
4th you ask?
Let's see...We are doing so much
co-packing and private label that there's not enough time to
run Lance products. We now have a full crew of
Mexicans running the Nabisco stuff (which, by the way, are
10x better than Lance products). We have an unusually
high amount of scrap going out the door - because
nobody cares anymore. People are quitting left and
right, they can't get any skilled labor in the door and
keep them because the payscale is still 10 yrs behind.
Nobody cares anymore!
Morale is at the lowest I've
ever seen anywhere, which in turn affects
performance, which affects production, which affects THE
Lance will be bought soon, the writing
is on the wall. It's the only way we'll get pulled
from this downward deathspiral we're in.
could write a novel about how screwed up Lance is from
top to bottom. But ........... I just don't care
anymore. They can drop to their knees and choke on
Y e a h ... take all of it biatch.
momma I said hey!
To hear that some Lance employees are afraid to
post anything on a message board. If thats all those
in Charlotte have to do is sit and look for posting
from disgrunted employees than their in worse shape
than I ever could imagine. In all my years with Lance
I found the one constant to be one big fat LIE.
Kind of reminds me of the Arabs in the inner city,
they know what type of thiefs and liars they are an
view everyone the same as them. Jeckles, I would
suspect you've been told to avoid this web page because
to much TRUTH gets exposed here. Personally speaking
I serve a more powerful master. God forbid someone
in Charlotte misplace a remittance envelope or lose
a money order of yours, you'd be TERMINATED boy!
Have the Teamster talked to our truckers yet????? The
best thing anyone can do that works for Lance is GET
IT IN WRITING. Than again, from some of the rep's

I should be more specific on my location, but
we(middle managers) have been told not to mess with this

Check out the "new" Toastchee, best taste and quality
in last five years, and also changes to the old way
on most "golden Goose" products. This developement
is the most encouraging news for me in the last 5
yrs. It has been tough on us loyal and proven
veterans, but we again are hoping for the best.
hard to read these posts here ,the jokes,
condemnation, and pessimism. But, I must say most are
warranted,as bad as i hate to admit it.
I have said way to
much already , so i must close.
By the way, as a
LOYAL,PRODUCTIVE employee of the HOUSE, I find Salem's comments on
here embarrassing and totally out of line. He has
always been a joke to real lance people, and his
comments only confirm our feelings. Sorry Salem, no
offense intended, but you really should stick to your
Obviously you are havin some luck or your doin a
fantastic job. Thanks we need that spirit here in Tampa. We
seem to have one light anchor cause we are drifting
away from those kind of accounts. I dont know how your
route situation is where you are (maybe you should
specify)but here we have homepak routes and the production in
walmarts has gone from minimal to vanished. The who's

ASSistant to Mr. Stroup. Lemonekot, you thinking class
termination was there target. but after all
efforts it came down to the at will law and a nice chuck
of money to keep my mouth shut on certain
