This consist of 3 teams that have to work 4 consecutive Saturdays in a row.

They will challenge you to get your work done and together time will pass by pretty quickly. As long as you do your job to the best of your ability they'll reward you.

Sometimes the managers don't know what their talking about.

Night Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) – Wixom, MI – October 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.
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.

Night Selector (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 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.
Shuttle Driver (Current Employee) – Sioux Falls, SD – October 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.
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, CT – October 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.
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.
