Director of Operations/General Manager (Former Employee) –  Stockton, CAApril 9, 2016
Tight knit excellent organization that I left as my personal legacy and partial retirement in 2015. During my 19 years I am fortunate to have served a developmental roll in a company that in 1996 was a $168 million organization and grew to $1.5 Billion in 2015. I held every key director roll in merchandising, procurement, operations, and logistics including US and Far East export business. I am proud to have served the men and women of our armed forces for the past 19 years of my working career at Coastal Pacific Food Distributors. There could be no one that deserves our nations appreciation more than those who protect our freedom!
Pros
Excellent people company and great benefits
Cons
very intense on remaining #1 in military customer service

Order Selector/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  1015 Performance DriveSeptember 14, 2015
Start the day off with a beginning shift meeting where almost anything can be brought regarding the day's work from yesterday or for what's ahead.
Then work... a fun personal race between yourself and a variety of orders.
Coworkers are great and lunch is always a good time.
Hardest part of the job was leaving the family at 6pm to go to work.
Most enjoyable part of the job is the fact those in leadership positions genuinely care about their workers.

WAREHOUSE HIGH REACH FORKLIFT OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Stockton, CAMay 29, 2013
Working at Coastal Pacific as a woman on the night shift with 25-35 men typically can be a dangerous environment. I was never disrespected or treated improperly by any of the employees and actually was treated with extreme politeness. My experience with CPFD was great and has allowed me to grow and become more of a versatile individual with the learning experience gained in my 12 months of employment.
Pros
benefits, incentive pay, night shift incentive pay, overtime and holiday pay, pleasant staff
Cons
8 hour shifts sometimes could be 12 hours without prior notice

STAND UP FORKLIFT OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Ontario, CAJanuary 25, 2013
A typical day consisted of being informed of the start of shift work load,followed by assigning work zones and teams .the job teaches you to work at a sustained wor pace . Mgmt team was very visable and preasent throughout the days changing workload since the job is military food distribution. The team of co workers in this building are both in formative helpful working towards a comon goal. The hardest part of the job is the schedual since the job is a work till the workload for the days shipments is compleated making it hard for those who want to be off work by a certain time each day.
Pros
exelent benefit package including profit sharing, 401k, and medical.
Cons
