Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – February 22, 2017
I called on independent restaurant owners and helped them to improve their business. The company I worked for was 2nd to None. We were a large national company that furnished restaurants with all their needs. Fresh,Frozen,Disposals, Equipt and Supplies. I retired at age 62. 75% in Sales - 25 % Mgnt. I enjoyed my career in the Food business. It's been 10 years since I retired but I wish to remain active and busy helping others in finding happiness.
Territory Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Bensenville, IL – February 17, 2017
THe job at US Foods was different every day. Some days would start very early heading to see customers before dawn and others were spent in the office. I learned how to manage myself. The workplace culture was very supportive focusing on training and development. The hardest part of the job is that you are never really off the clock. In 11 years I only had one vacation that I didnt have to do any work. On the posative side is the flexability. You can work from anywhere.

Logistics Load Specialist (Former Employee) – Rosemont, IL – February 16, 2017
Overall this is a good comany to work for. Culture, people, pay, benifits good. However, can be stressfull at times due to always being short staff. Senior Leaders and Managment leadership is poor Managers are very disengaged.
National Credit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Rosemont, IL – February 15, 2017
I had opportunities to work with Credit Managers & Sales Reps across the country, and it was easy to establish positive working relationships with the people in the corporate office and other locations. However, I lost respect for the CEO when he announced right before the holidays that the company was restructuring and 10% of the workforce would be downsized, while at the same time saying that the company was doing well and preparing for future growth.
Advancement and self-improvement opportunities were very few & far between.
Lead Analyst, Client Technologies (Former Employee) – Rosemont, IL – February 6, 2017
Generally good intentions, however perception on what employees do is often very far off the closer you get to the top. There are a number of leaders who treat employees with very little respect. The problem is some of them are within 2 levels of the top. Not very motivating if your leaders are rude or disrespectful people.
diminishing benefits, lack of career growth opportunities
Part Time Garage Helper (Former Employee) – Streator, IL – February 5, 2017
