This is a very high stress environment where they put no effort into training you at complex positions and are severely under-paid. They also work you terrible hours with no regard to your personal well being. As a company as a whole they offer wonderful benefits and an organized work structure, as well as very nice offices but the work environment is toxic and filled with drama. At the end of the day you're a number, just a worker bee, and not valued as a person. This is great work experience but absolutely not an environment you will want to stay in long term.
Great Benefits, Nice office space, Good location
Low paying, Terrible hours, inter-office drama, very little training
US. Foods is a decent company to work for, Far and beyond better than PFG. At least this branch but while the compensation and benefits are good the transportation department is not. transpiration manager is extremely incompetent and not qualified for his position. Neither is anybody else in that transportation department for that matter. Why is it at PFG and Sysco it is mandatory that all supervisors in transportation must have been drivers at one point. Big picture is glooming over US. Foods head they are several billion dollars in debt and the company has changed hands a couple of times in recent years. Big time buyout from Sysco is coming.
Territory Manager (Current Employee) – Ogden, UT – November 22, 2017
Great innovated products (SCOOP) But are forced to sell them to 25% of customers. most sales people buy it through a customer to get management off their backs. You use to be able to go out and sell, but the higher ups have you doing all this useless paperwork and bogging you down with mindless paperwork.
Consultant - Senior Scrum Master (Current Employee) – Rosemont, IL – November 22, 2017
I was a contractor for the company and I was used repeatedly as the scapegoat for management failures. They would tell you to perform a task and if that ended up being a bad decision they do not hesitate to throw you under the bus. This isn't endemic through all of management, it is more hit or miss. It is just unfortunate that there are people in power who are allowed to do this at all.

Managers have their favorites. If you disagree, even if done professionally, they will continue to ride your back. The company is good and does have good people in it. Night shift is not one to work on.

Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – North Las Vegas, NV – November 15, 2017
The management at this place is AWFUL! Unless you are one of the managers pets, you will be harassed daily. The managers are ineffective and don't care what happens with moral as long as they get their bonuses. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME UNLESS YOU LIKE DRAMA

Order puller 2nd shifts dry warehouse (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – November 11, 2017
Filled invoices by going through the warehouse via pallet jack. Learned order selecting. Management was strong and very knowledgeable as was the employees. The hardest part of the job was the heavy lifting but never seemed to stop me. The most enjoyable part was they allowed us to listen to headphones making the workday much easier and less mundane.
