DAY WAREHOUSE/ FORKLIFT OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Port Orange, FLOctober 13, 2017
Be careful working here. Your day consist of starting at 6am but you work until all freight is off the floor. This means you can work between 9-12 hours a day. You also don't get holidays off unless you use your own personal time. Thanksgiving day and Christmas day are the only holidays off. You also work a rotating schedule for Saturdays. This consist of 3 teams that have to work 4 consecutive Saturdays in a row.
Pros
start time/ free lunch sometimes/ insurance
Cons
saturdays/ no set hours of work/ no holidays off

Territory Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Fishers, INOctober 10, 2017
Worked for this company for almost 14 yrs. Very solid comapny, great culture but since we went public, too many initiatives to keep up with. I feel I have no time to actually sell anymore.

Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 10, 2017
Transition period, they want to go on line with customers. Loosing the human factor. Many products need to be special ordered, not in stock and available to customers for next day ship.

Night Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) –  Wixom, MIOctober 10, 2017
If it wasn't for the shift that I was working, I would not be looking for something else. I have very little work/life balance on my shift, with no prospect to move to my desired shift any time soon. But the job itself is great, with great salary and benefits.
Pros
Salary, benefits, work environment
Cons
Shift, hours

You will work your tail off
Nighttime Warehouse Selector (Former Employee) –  Lexington, SCOctober 10, 2017
Management tries to work you like a dog mean while they will try to pay you as little as possible by taking money from your check for every item you make a mistake on. You can go from making 25 dollars an hour to making 11 dollars an hour all because out of 2500 items you select, you miss one.
Pros
they feed you sometimes and the people are cool
Cons
everything else especially management

Night Selector (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYOctober 9, 2017
One of the best paying jobs you'll find in this area, but it comes at the cost of actual work. Physically demanding, with standards that must be met, but you're surrounded by a great group of people. If you're not physically fit, you shouldn't apply. Also, this job offers plenty of overtime, if you're looking for that.
Pros
Overtime, incentives, good middle-management
Cons
Union job

Not a job for active people
Shuttle Driver (Current Employee) –  Sioux Falls, SDOctober 9, 2017
I enjoyed the benefits of the job but not the mundane routine. I prefer to be active all the time instead of sitting in a truck for 8+ hours a day. The shuttle position isn't for someone who doesn't enjoy routine days.
Pros
overtime after 8 hours
Cons
Too routine

Shuttle Driver (Current Employee) –  Charleston, SCOctober 6, 2017
The hardest part of the job, besides no pay increase in several years, is the uncertainty of the work schedule.You may think you only have to make one trip, but upon arriving in Lexington, find out you have to make two trips.

Delivery class a cdl driver (Current Employee) –  Norwich, CTOctober 4, 2017
Communications sucks, and the turn-over rate is high. Whats to love? The extremely long hours of work that leave you drained at the end of the day? or the fact that no one seems to know how to do their job 100% correctly.
Pros
occasional free stuff (gatorade, etc)
Cons
bad communications, management needs work

Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCOctober 4, 2017
US Foods has been streamlining their workforce for the last few years. Replacing long term employees with younger employees that will reduce their payroll. They have become more interested in ebitda than employee retention.

Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  Bridgeport, NJOctober 4, 2017
US Foods is great for recent college graduates who are just starting out. For a single parent with a busy schedule, it proved challenging but was do-able.
