BUYER II (Former Employee) –  Springdale, OHJuly 24, 2017
Being a food service buyer is a thankless job, you never get it right. You almost always have to much inventory for the warehouse to hold or you don't have enough inventory or what exactly the sales force wants when they want it.
Pros
Trade shows for new product and meeting new clients
Cons
Vendor buy ins and keeping inventory levels down

No time or energy left for life outside of work. Pay not worth it.
Selector (Current Employee) –  ogden, utJuly 21, 2017
You start at 4 pm and are done when you're done, usually around 3:30 am. So you never get to spend time with your family or have the energy to enjoy what little time you get.

40 hours at 100% ($20/hr) is 41,000/year gross. This means that you don't get paid enough to support your family without overtime.

The only way to see your kids over the weekend is to be a manager. Sunday is our least productive day, and only 2 mangers work that day. Our office worker also is off that day, so we lose another selector to do that work.

Long hours, low morale, and average pay. If you do decide to work here, save up your money and transfer to one of the higher paying warehouses. If you're willing to work these long hours, you should be at a warehouse that pays you what you're worth.
Pros
401k, benefits
Cons
everything else

Stuck
worker (Current Employee) –  anywere, usaJuly 20, 2017
Feels like I'm stuck with no opportunities for advancement to better myself or my yearly less than cost of living increase pay raise. I have years experience and yet new employees are brought in at same rate of pay if not higher... Where is the motivation in that?

The company is good, lots of hours.
Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJuly 18, 2017
The day starts with fielding calls with delivery issues and continues into customer sales calls and meeting with customers.
I have learned time management, systems and customer relations.
The management is hard to reach at times and there is a lot of follow up needed when help is requested. The job is not hard but very invasive as you are on call 7 days a week and when you take time off you still need to field customer calls. The most enjoyable part of the position is the customers and realtinships you build.
Pros
Independence and relationships
Cons
Work 7 days a week

Good place to work
Buyer (Former Employee) –  Rosemont, ILJuly 13, 2017
Generally speaking a very good place to work. Compensation leaves a bit to be desired, and depending on the job you're in, there is very little room to move up (or to another department)
Pros
Working hard on their culture
Cons
Not much ability to move up

Do Not work there
Wrobo wrapper (Current Employee) –  Ogden, UTJuly 11, 2017
There is no life/work balance. The night managers are very unprofessional. They don't keep anything confidential and they play favorites. Being a hard worker only gets you screwed over.
