good money, LONG LONG hours.
Order Selector (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCDecember 27, 2016
ive worked as a selector for about 5.5 years now. this by far, is one of the toughest environments ive worked in. 8 hours a night 5 nights a week is normal and still pretty tough for a selector. however, if you plan on working here, you'll be working 11-12 hours a night EVERY night. im on my 2nd week here and my body feels like i got hit with a train.
the money is good, but not for 12 exhausting hours a night. you dont make incentive, you just get "raises" every 4 weeks. and if you missed 1 case in 1,000 you dont get a raise.
Pros
decent money
Cons
horribly long hours, not enough compensation for the work

Good Compensation for Hard Work
Night Sele (Current Employee) –  Salem, VANovember 27, 2016
Jobs like this are hard to come by with regard to compensation. On the flip side this job will take a toll on your body. Some of the slots you pick from are only a couple feet off the ground and you will have to crawl to pick something that may way 35-50 Lbs. Other times the slot may be 5 feet off the ground and the only way possible to grab the item is to climb. They preach safety, but under these circumstances it is only preached because you are not paid to be safe. You are paid to be productive. There is no way to do this job for years and not have back pain. Nonetheless, I know that some selectors make $70,000 per year. I would say the average selector makes $45-50K. Pretty much everyone is overworked and irritated. Management seems to care and somehow seems like they are not doing enough.
Pros
Compensation, Weekends off
Cons
10 hr days, night shift, poor working conditions

It's a job
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Swedesboro, NJDecember 11, 2016
Long hours and incompetent managers. The good supervisors are overworked and under appreciated. This division is WEAK at the top!!! (People making big money to Direct the division don't have a CLUE!)

Don't ever even think about asking for more money.....they will promise you the world, but never deliver.

This is Union environment and most of the employees are great! They will work for you...just respect them. (They are paid well which also helps)

It is a job and you will be paid!!! That's about it....
Pros
The people...and having Friday's off. Benefits are decent too.
Cons
Total lack of leadership! They don't have a clue in this division

No life if you work for this company. MONEY MONEY MONEY!
Night Clerk (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSDecember 1, 2016
This isnt a bad company to work for IF you don't have a family. This is more of a single persons job. The pay is great. While working here they were going through management changes and from what I have been told they are going through it again. It was like working in a high school. There was so much drama and rumors. The job itself is very demanding. While I was there I was working 10-12 hour days 5-6 days a week. They pay is good though after working all of those long hours. Turn over rate is INSANE!!!

Good pay, can be fun, life consuming
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 31, 2016
There is no typical day at work. This can be either good or bad in a sense where there is always a new and exciting product to learn about and sell, however there is always an issue that needs to be resolved.

Thick skin is required for the position of a Territory Manager. This particular role involves mostly rejection and requires the ability to be flexible at all times. There is however, some gratification when a customer is reaping the benefits of your assistance.

Management and co-workers vary. The overall compensation is satisfactory however this isn't any travel compensation.

Decent pay
Night Warehouse (Current Employee) –  Allentown, PAJanuary 9, 2017
They pay very well and have some nice perks (employee purchasing opportunities; meals, etc) but the culture and work itself is quite depressing. Your day could be 6 hours or 12+ hours... depending on the orders and how many ppl show up that day. This can makes things difficult if you have young kids and getting them up for school the next day, as everyone here works night shift to start.
Everything is seniority based, so if you want to move up due to merit or work ethic this is not the place for you. They do not treat people particularly well due to high turnover and the good pay is used as leverage against employees who have complaints.
The number of workers who get hurt here is staggering (albeit, some may be embellishing). For years there have been up to 25% of the night shift staff out hurt.
I wouldn't recommend working here as a career. I would recommend it for someone who strictly wants a good paycheck and is young and in great shape. If you can put in 20 years here, you might get a chance to move up to day shift after everyone retires ahead of you.
Pros
Pay, meals, purchasing opportunities
Cons
Culture, environment, low morale

Great Company
Contract Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZ 85284September 27, 2016
The co-workers quickly become your family. Relying on team members to analyze contracts and clientele's needs, there is always a helping hand. Short travel opportunities for those that work hard and willing to travel for a week. Company often has festivities and truly believe in work/life balance, but depending on field you cover may need to meet time sensitive deadlines even if it means overtime. The company is willing to give overtime as long as you have a project you're working on. Great growth rate with potential advancement opportunities.
Pros
Flexible Schedule, No weekends
Cons
Learning curve happens on the floor, not the training program

Depends on the location
Delivery Route Driver (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLSeptember 3, 2016
I worked for US Foods as a driver for almost 4 years. I started in Omaha, Ne and later transferred to Tampa, Fl. Omaha was a great location to work for. Management was organized and helpful. There was a strong team environment, as well as a driver's union. Then I transferred to Tampa, and got to see another side of the company. Horrible management, poor routing, no union which meant that management could play favorites and only assign the good routes and days off to their favorite employees. Pay was not the same either. It didn't measure up to the cost of living. Be careful which branch you work for, and make sure you are in a union.
Pros
Good if there is a union
Cons
Long hours, no life outside work, always on call even on days off, poor management

Nice pay
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJanuary 4, 2017
Worked here for over 19 years. They pay well so it is hard to leave. Management doesn't have a clue what happens in the warehouse. Corporate likes to dictate what products we need and we have to take them whether we need it or not. Warehouse is almost full but corporate doesn't care. Complete lack of discipline from employees since no one is ever written up. Morale is at an all time low, but management/corporate don't care.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Bad management, poor leadership, lack of communication

Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Greenville, SCJanuary 11, 2017
Training on new computer system. I learned a lot about the food industry and computer systems. Management was great very supportive. Worked with a great group of people. Training getting up in front of people was most challenging. The opportunity to advance and grow with the company. Enjoyed the environment and structure of the company.
Pros
Large company, health benefits.
Cons

Driver (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 25, 2016
As a driver, If you want to just bust your butt and get fired after 90 days this is the job for you. Management has been fighting the Union for years and using the drivers as leverage, they hire about 6 drivers every few months but when it comes time to sign your union protection papers they let you go on the 89th day. Managers mistreat and lie to your face, they should be ashamed to put the US in there name.
Pros
Starting pay is good
Cons
Terrible management

National Account Sales Support (Former Employee) –  Garland, TXJanuary 22, 2017
Management needs to treat employees equally. Favoritism is an everyday reality. The layoff was unfair. People with many years of service were let go. With them went the working knowledge of the Foodservice Industry.
Pros
Benefits were the biggest Pro
Cons
Equalitity is not practiced at this company

Route Driver (Current Employee) –  SF DivisionJanuary 3, 2017
This is a good company to work for. Big enough to be able to make a good living and friendly enough in culture to have a feel of a smaller, private company. Definitely would like to transfer if there's an opening.
Pros
Wages, benefits, good atmosphere
Cons
Occasionally size of company thwarts input from employees

Sr Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Severn, MDJune 30, 2016
US Foods is a rapidly growing company with much potential. The management in the Operations Department is like a revolving door. The constant change in management causes disruption and a lack of accountability/structure. The team members are awesome and pull together to make it happen no matter what the work conditions are. I enjoyed the "family" like relaxed environment I was a part of.
Pros
Cell Phone Discounts, Stocks, flexibility, generous vacation/personal, vision and dental insurance are great time
Cons
treatment of employees is not always fair. Medical benefits could be much better. The rates, deductibles and out of pocket expenses are crazy for a company of this size.

Overall not worth it.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Ogden, UTSeptember 17, 2016
The pay is good but not even worth what they put you through. Will take a dedicated, hard, honest, happy worker and put them through he$& and turn them miserable. Your body will be put through he$&, working long hours, coming home exhausted not even able to focus on your family by the time you're home. Things like telling you that you're vacation was approved then 3 days before you leave telling you nevermind. Warehouse needs to get there stuff together, routing is horrible. Theyll tell you to go in for your shift at 3 am and not even leave the plant till 6:30 due to warehouse being so slow then the bosses yell at you that you're behind when THEY got you out of the plant 3 and a half hours late. Happened atleast twice a week. Upper management could not care any less. If you need to talk to them it takes forever and they don't take care of it, they dont care about a single employee it's just about money to them. They don't hesitate to fire anyone, not even a write up just fired. Got out of the truck to figure out which door the owner of a restaurant wanted me to deliver to, got back in backed the truck up (all while in a parking lot) to that door. 3 months later was called in to the officed and fired for not putting seat belt back on just to back up 150 feet. Had NO idea just left cut and dry with no warning, two weeks before my baby was due. All around the job isn't worth putting yourself or your family through.
Pros
Pay. Insurance is pretty good.
Cons
Pay should be more for what you're put through.

Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Charlottesville, VASeptember 7, 2016
Easy job, not rocket science. Management does not work with you. They will not adapt to current situations, would rather do what worked 20 years ago. Do your research before going here. It is a physically demanding job, keeps you in shape. Hardest part of the job is dealing with upper management who reject to change.
Pros
Weekends off, affordable benefits
Cons
Poor management, poor routing, poor planning all around
