I worked with a great bunch of people. Their was no turn over as to new hires so we were like family. Hardest part of the job for me was all the new technology coming so fast. The work days went by way to fast, never enough hours. I loved the people I called on every week. Management in Bismarck was awesome, they always had you're back.
Human Resource and Operations do not work with hourly employees. They offer open door policy and that is false. The management team only looks out for themselves and not the employees.Every 2-3 years there is new management and new Human resource personnel. No stability whatsoever. Facility looks horrible inside and out and does not hold employees responsible to clean after themselves. This is a great company but is run by wrong people at certain divisions.
Primary owner of Customer Relationship: As a Territory Manager, you are expected to develop and grow existing customers and maximize profitable sales; make sales presentations to all customers on an agreed-upon and consistent basis. Here is where the job gets challenging. You are also expected to manage deliveries to the routing schedule published by the transportation department; troubleshoot any problems that occur during the order process (e.g., delivery mispicks, short on loads, stock-outs). Along with handling accounts receivable as necessary, working with the credit department and client; collect all balances due based on approved credit terms. You may have a really good plan for the day to grow existing customers and profits, but that plan gets torpedoed by a mispick or a short load or a credit issue and now you have to solve that problem. At the end of the day, when all of your customers recognize how hard that you work for them and give you the repeat business instead of giving it to the competition, you get that feeling of satisfaction!
challenging, rewarding, flexible
Seemingly lack of communication between different departments within the company
Its big on safety. Its a lot of work. I enjoy it. Good career job. management is great. They will work with you when possible. Ive learned a lot about problem solving. You are independent. If you like working alone its a great job for you. Can be frustrating depending on your character.

If you're very motivated and possess critical thinking skills, have strength and stamina then this is perfect for you. Tough to gain advancement and long work hours can make it tough. Ideal for young and single people!

No two days are the same. It is difficult having unorganized customers that do not order the correct items or not enough of the correct items. During the summer, you do not have any time off on the weekends. Always running around having to bail out customers.

US food is a great place to work if you are used to working in the food/warehouse industry. This is a very demanding job due to their business relies on the employees. The better US Food is meeting their customers agreements the better the business in return for the employees hours, over time , bigger checks, US food pays every week which is a plus. They have great insurance. Again this is a very physically demanding job. Only serious applicant should apply.
