Angered Ex-Employee
Sanitation Worker (Former Employee) –  Greensburg, PANovember 15, 2016
Enjoyed working here prior to being terminated because of a no call no show due to incarceration even though I notified my supervisor the night of my incarceration...all my acquired vacation and holiday pay was taken without even being discussed of the nature of my termination. I feel I was wrongfully terminated without even being given a chance.

Large phoenix facility with bad management
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

Buyer / Procurement Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fairburn, GAJanuary 22, 2017
In the 4 1/2 years I worked for US Foods I can honestly say that I was able to learn a variety of skills across several departments. I was never held back in learning other aspects of departments that crossed over to procurement. I seemed to always stay very busy.

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

Good 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

Run Away, As Fast as You Can...
Selector (Current Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCNovember 2, 2016
Worst Job I have ever had. Management will lie to you. Management has favorites. Management refuses to give you your back Retro pay. Management does the blame game. Coworker's will say things behind your back NOT to you. Coworker's will say they make 80K a year, but NOT come close to that number. The branch is screwed up the way it ran. Be very afraid.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Deliver Driver (Former Employee) –  Greensburg, PAFebruary 22, 2017
The managers are all morons who have little or no knowledge as to how to smoothly run a business. The only reason it is as successful as it is, is the drivers
Pros
Great pay, great benefits, and weekends off.
Cons
Managers are morons, warehouse stacks pallets terribly, mechanics don't fix trucks.

Free Leftovers with lots of drama
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Lexington, SCDecember 12, 2016
this company allow negativity to thrive throughout the company. They allow people to create lies to cover themselves and get rid of the ones that rumors are about. There is more talking and not enough working that is why the productivity is always behind.
Pros
Free left overs
Cons
the Fairness

Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MNFebruary 25, 2017
I learned a lot while I was there: dealing with people in general. They have a primitive technology. Some co-workers are unwilling to learn a new way to be productive. Communication disparages from top to bottom.
Pros
Fast pace
Cons
long hours of work every day

Make a lot of money, don't have a lot of personal time.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Livermore, CADecember 13, 2016
This job is not easy at all. Work tons of hours and make a lotta money, but your home life suffers. You almost have to choose to either have a family or have this job for the first couple years you're there.
Pros
Free food from time to time.
Cons
Home time suffers tremendously.

Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Myrtle Beach, SCMarch 6, 2017
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.

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

It can be a great place to work, but at times stressful
Accounts Payable Processor (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZOctober 20, 2016
I've been with the company for a long time. Its a decent place to work and overall they treat everyone fairly. The company is going through a number of changes after a failed merger with a larger rival. It has now gone public successfully and should continue to grow.
Pros
Good people, clear goals
Cons
communication
