Excellent Company to work for
Vendor Administrator (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZJanuary 14, 2017
I enjoyed my time with Day And Zimmermann/Yoh Company. I enjoyed the people, the supervisors and managers. I enjoyed the environment. I enjoyed the flexible schedule, the ability to advance and the ability to speak freely. The hardest part of the job was being overlooked for advancement for someone who didn't know the job as well as me but had experience in an area that I did not. Other than that it was a great place to work.

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.

Buddy system
Selector (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSJanuary 18, 2017
There is a high amount of the buddy system in the management area. Also, with working with food the sick leave is not up to par. Sick employees are forced to come in or be pointed and fired

Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Wixom, MIFebruary 2, 2017
This was one of the longest 3 and 1/2 years in my career as a food sales rep. The upper management there was unbelievable rude and nasty. You were just a number that was easily to be replaced.

Company not what it use to be
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Springfield, MOMarch 16, 2016
The people are great, the corporate windmill however is in full control and dictates everything. Directly before, during, and even after Sysco's failed acquisition of USF, the company got in it's own head and got away from what they had done so well, and that is treating their people with respect and appreciation. Took me leaving to realize just how bad it was. Gave me my opportunity and am grateful, but never looking back. A shame too, because it use to be a company many people envied.
Pros
Marketing, peers, compensation
Cons
Corrupt, desperate, immoral

Great place to work
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KS 66618May 2, 2016
Great pay, easy work, discounts on food products. If you had a set route it was pretty easy, but sometimes you would be sent somewhere that you had never been which made it tricky. Thank you google maps. If you can find the dumpster, you can find the kitchen door. Everyone was easy to get along with. The health benefits were ok (BCBS). No complaints.

Fast pace environment, Communication issue
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

This company sucks
Driver portland (Current Employee) –  Portland, OROctober 11, 2016
I work for us foods portland.... unfortunately. The trans supervisor for that area is a complete liar. I was promised wages that after being hired they reniged on. I was promised lots of work and that never happened. This place will lie right to your face to get you onboard and then stab you in the back after being hired. The working conditions are unsafe. The loads inside the trailer are a complete disaster. Pallets of food poorly built and not stable or secure. Boxes of food fall on you and at you when opening doors to the trailer. The management in this place is a complete and utter joke. There is no common sense or intelligence and is poorly managed, thats why sysco and fsa dominate the northwest because us foods has treated their workers horribly and their customers as well because of their dysfunctional and inept abilities. Bottom line for anyone thinking of applying here: DONT!!!! Corporate needs to come in a complete clean house from the general manager to all supervisors both wharehouse and trans and put people in who have intelligence and common sense.

Selector (Former Employee) –  Port OrangeNovember 30, 2016
After interviewing for the job I realized I was the wrong color. They only hire people far less qualified that way the boss always looks good. It's job security for management to keep the door revoling.
