Supervisor Assistant (Former Employee) – Wixom, MI – November 29, 2015
You usually work long hours on a typical day or night. You can learn the business and move up if you in the clique. The company employee is usually very knowledgeable and helpful. The overtime pay is the most enjoyable thing to look forward too during holiday seasons.
US Food Severn was a great place to work until about 2009 when two lay offs occurred putting over 30 drivers out of work. There was about 220 drivers at the time because of the work volume, that was hiven to other divisions and underbidded on accounts. There are about 80 drivers and the work is becoming minimal. There's a different transportation manager every 12-16 months who usually gets walked out due to "not performing job duties". The warehouse is 60% full of product and there was a memo put out about a "tentative closing" in turn wanting the driver's and warehouse to take a $5-6 pay cut, pay their own benefits and 401K, and lose 3 days of personal time and this is a union facility. I don't see US Foods Severn surviving the next 2-5 years. The glory days are over.
I love my work family. I love helping others figure out the solution. I have a lot of sales support calls and questions and I really try to figure out the problem and fix it as quickly as possible. In my position I have been lucky to have mentors teach me. I have been given opportunities to mentor other contract coordinators. It is really high stress at times especially now that so many changes are taking place.

A rewarding job, built relationships Middle management have no prior managerial skills, i.e. lack of skills to develop their employees. Not all adhere to their integrity goal that is in their company mission.
