    there was no politics involved on who got homepak
    routes. Segmentation in my neck of the woods took place
    after sam's club went from dsd to direct shipments.
    Therfore, cutting out the salesman's commission. Rumors
    were flying that all major chains that carried homepak
    were putting presure on lance to switch from dsd to
    warehouse shipments as with sam's. I was afraid of loosing
    my route. Also most of my business was single serve.
    So, i decided to stay on a single serve route. If
    left alone, i can barely handle the route. A new
    salesman would not last long. Fortunatly, i am one of the
    few salesmen with sales up for the
    year.

    currently, i am not looking for a new job.i have time built
    into this company. I keep hopeing the situation will
    improve. It really bothers me to see the company destroyed
    by management in charlotte.

    every problem
    that seems to plague the branch seems to have its
    origin out of charlotte. My dsm seems very competent. My
    branch manager is so overwhelmed he has to prioritize
    which problems get fixed first. That is if charlotte
    does not come up with any more bright ideas. He has
    cancelled his vacations for the past 2 years to straighten
    out charlotte created problems.

    if thing do
    not improve, i may have to find find another job. I
    keep hopeing things will improve.

    any knowledge
    on richard tuckers background is dsd? Could it be a
    learn as you go process?
