This is one of those classic “we make money by selling things” arguments. There are lots of reasons why I disagree, such as that people still do that despite the fact that it’s gone out of business. In fact, I have to agree with the original poster, and I think that a part of it is that I have to admit this is true.
The real reason why I disagree is that I used to work for king syrup, and I have to admit that I feel like they’ve been completely out of business. Sure, I used to help them create new flavors, but I also used to help them help people get their syrup bottles back, and I believe they are now out of business. If you’re wondering, I worked at king syrup long enough that they have their own website, and I have a lot of personal contact with them.
One of my first jobs was as a “product development” or marketing manager for king-sugar, and I’ve been with them for over fifteen years. I can’t remember the last time they were in trouble, but the last I could remember them being in trouble was around the time I was out of college.
You can’t blame them for being in trouble though, as the company is doing quite well. They just lost their CEO, and their CEO is responsible for making sure the company stays afloat. Their stock price has never been lower since Ive been there.
It certainly is time for a change though, and the way to start is with a simple announcement.
King-Sauce was the largest manufacturer of soft drinks in the world and had a good reputation. They decided to go out of business and move to a plant in Canada. A move that came with a lot of problems. The company is very profitable, so they thought they would just sit and wait until the new plant opened up and they could start production again. Problem is, the plant did not open for a year and a half.
When the new plant finally opened up in 2009, there was a lot of confusion as to what was going to happen. There were rumors about a lot of employees leaving, many of whom were replaced by robots, and a lot of employees still working for the same company but who were not part of the new company.
The new plant itself is a lot of fun. With giant robots, massive amounts of machinery, and a ton of workers (all to make King Soma), this is definitely a place where you can feel a little bit like a kid again.
It is, in fact, a good place to work. It’s a massive factory capable of turning out some pretty amazing results for all the labor that goes into creating King Soma. If you want to work at the company, you will be given a list of things that you need to do before you will be allowed to get your lunch break.
The list is actually pretty interesting. It basically has everything from producing the robots to making the giant robot-themed lunchbox, to making the robots, to the whole thing of making King Soma. With this list, the workers are not limited to just making King Soma. They can also make all sorts of other things.
