I first learned how to be a purchasing assistant here. I enjoyed all that it took to make sure pricing, accuracy and deadlines were met. I enjoyed completing the whole cycle of assisting the buyers. Prior to being transferred to this position I enjoyed my inside sales position in forming and maintaining customer relationships. We had great work parties. Management was very fair.
great co-workers, team players, benefits and fun atmosphere.
Professional work environment with professionals who carries about success.
Director of Procurement (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – April 26, 2014
work included meeting with a number if vendors and working with corporate to meet the direction provided by national headquarters.
Co workers assisted in replenishment of products and supplies to assist sales in filling customer requests. most part professional carrying buyers with strong ability to succeed.
Management was weak a number of senior staff was replaced and companies VP of sales seem to have an agenda that did not reflect the overall goals for the company. Made it tough to fulfill the request of sales for correct product mix.
Hardest part of the job was ending long term profitable vendor relationships directed by corporate. It was understandable yet no consideration was given to these loyal suppliers.
Success in seeing a new rep become successful due to training we provided and the attention to detail we provided the customer.
Warehouse Distribution Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hurricane, WV. – March 23, 2014
The warehouse is typically driven by receiving and shipping in food distribution. There are many aspects of sanitation involved in all areas of warehouse cleanliness. The areas consist of dry,cooler and freezer. There are SOP's and GMP's in place that have guidelines.
The 29 years that I have been there has given me experience in all warehouse distribution knowledge.
The last 14 years of my tenure was spent in management.
The greatest asset to a company's success is their talented people.
When it comes to warehouse distribution success, hard work and experience go hand-in-hand.
The greatest filling is seeing most if not all of everybody's hard work and dedication become a reality at the end of every day.

Inventory Control Manager/Supervisor (Former Employee) – La Mirada, CA – February 3, 2014
Love working at UF Foods. Due to the economic downturn over the last three years it was very difficult to meet operational goals. US Foods L.A. was one of the best preforming divisions on a national level but the over all performance of the company has been down over the last couple of years. Resulting in the planned sale to Sysco Foods later this year.
great people, great benefits, managers were inpowered to make decisions.
