Under-trained and under-valued
Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Buda, TXNovember 25, 2017
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.
Pros
Great Benefits, Nice office space, Good location
Cons
Low paying, Terrible hours, inter-office drama, very little training

Not a bad job but could be much better
Tractor trailer driver (Former Employee) –  Norwich, CTNovember 24, 2017
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.
Pros
Good pay, and time off
Cons
Transportation department is a complete disaster

Stressful place to work
Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Ogden, UTNovember 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.
Pros
great products
Cons
management has no clue.

Every man for themselves
Consultant - Senior Scrum Master (Current Employee) –  Rosemont, ILNovember 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.
Pros
Free coffee, food
Cons
Doesn't feel like management has your back

Food service is a physically demanding occupation. Early morning start times and high volume schedules. Company does compensate for this work culture. Overall its a good company with much camaraderie with co-workers.

Forklift Driver (Former Employee) –  Buda, TXNovember 16, 2017
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.

Union job
Forklift Operator / Order selector (Former Employee) –  Eagan, MNNovember 16, 2017
Fast paced union job. Work is done on an engineered standard. If you do not make the standard you are disciplined up to termination. Union was made up of criminal types.

Run from this place
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  North Las Vegas, NVNovember 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
Cons
Management does NOT care about their employees

Sr. Operations Clerk (Former Employee) –  Salem, MONovember 14, 2017
Daily dealing with customers and sales people, coordinating backhauls and warehouse communication.
While employed with US I learned about having a strong worth ethic
and the importance reliability and doing a good job
Management in Salem and St Louis were great
Hard working atmosphere
The hardest part of the job was when needed pick ups were not ready and product was needed to ship that night
The most enjoyable part was customer ,vendor,sales people interaction as well as the satisfaction of doing a good job

Order puller 2nd shifts dry warehouse (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKNovember 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.
