    By sending out 10000 flyers what is you expected job connection and have you ever sent out this many flyers before and what was your rate of success?
    I am curious because everything I read says do NOT send out flyers as the rate of call back is poor to none and that post cards are the way to go. And with all advertising costing so much with paper, print, fuel, and most of all your own time then its hard to know what to do.

    Yea that was me. I have your card in my wallet. We talked at the shell station on gause. And yes, I do still work for frito lay, but I am in operations now. I work out of the warehouse in Lacombe. To respond about the flyers question, I should have said postcards. I got my first order of 100 in and have put about half out and I have 250 more on the way. Probably will do about 1000 total between now and mid - March.
