former employee (Former Employee) – warehouse – July 19, 2013
My experience as an employee was bitter sweet... I admire Mr. Bolling and he has done a remarkable job with the food bank and its culture. But since he isn't there most of time he doesn't see the inferior job of management. Certain things were swept under the rug. Some were fired for the pettiest of things. I've witnessed them give a certain agency an entire truck load of chicken for free in two visits with no paper trail. Giving free pallets of snacks to their "preferred"agencies when the less fortunate agencies have to pay for everything. Some were given prior notice when certain merchandise arrived. A few of their favorite agencies aren't even inspected. Warehouse employees risked their lives hanging Christmas lights 50+ in the air for a fund raiser (execs kept walking); and then one was fired for being raised 4 feet trying to fixed their own dock door.
it was a family-like atmosphere, for the most part everyone got along there. i've made some great friends there.
management was never consistent on implementing rules and guidelines
Food Sort (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 17, 2015
Every day we would do different task. The type of task we did were packing, unpacking, moving, weighing, and labeling boxes. I learned how to work fast and be efficient. My co-workers were nice people who I could get along with easy. The hardest part for me was being told to take a break. I am not the kind of person to take a break. The best part about the job was being able to listen to music, sing, and chat with others while working..
Professional (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 5, 2012
ACFB does a great job at helping the community, but when it comes to how they treat their employees, things are not so great. Upper management (CEO, COO and the CFO especially) are not good managers of people. They may do fine with the business side, but are horrible managers.
The culture is laid back (almost too laid back at times), so if you're looking for a professional, corporate environment, this is not the place to work.
The pay is low compared to other companies and the benefits are average. However, they do offer a few more paid holidays than some.
The best part about working there was you get to help the community. The worst part is management. They all need to retire and get some new people in that know something other than foodbanking. They will smile in your face, but then stab you in the back. You can't trust them.
They also show a lot of favoritism. They do a lot of underhanded things (i.e., pay themselves bonuses, while there is a freeze on everyone else's salaries), give raises to a select few, but tell others it's against policy to give raises in the middle of the year.
It was one of the worst places to work and a lot of that had to do with my manager. I would not recommend working here unless you're just looking for a "job" until you can find a real career position. If you're a person of color, forget it. You won't move up.
flexible schedules, nice coworkers, helping the community
upper management is stuck in their ways, no room for advancement (except for a select few), low pay, benefits are average
Donor Processor (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 30, 2013
Typical day at work was entering in information from donors who donated to the food bank. Also set up batches to complete for the next day. I learned that there are a lot of giving people in the world. I went to work happy knowing that we all cared for each other in different ways. Management were not shoulder sharks. They hired you to do a job as a responsible adult, there was no need to be on our backs since they knew we worked hard. If there need to be something said about the work you produced it was productive criticism. The hardest part this job was being let go, since I was Temp and had another job lined up (which fell through) I would have loved to continue to work there. The most enjoyable part of this job was the way everybody worked to gether, it was awesome !!!!

Agency Services Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 26, 2013
There is no typical day at work. You have the opportunity to learn about various non-profits as well as yourself. I have excellent co-workers. The most enjoyable part about the job is helping those in need.
