Pros: free samples, healthy living opportunities, healthcare
Cons: low salaries, archaic managment styles
I ran various report and charts every day with an extensive use of Excel and PowerPoint. I learned a lot about Excel and organic living. The management was a bit "old fashioned" with their management style, but I could see the changes that were being implemented and are now completely different than when I first started. My co-workers were some of the the best parts of my day. They were very supportive and continue to be friends today. The most difficult part of my job was the lack of customer interaction. I learned a lot about the inner working and different departments of UNFI (i.e. warehouse, purchasing, business analysis, sales, finance/ accounting, customer service). The most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to broaden my views of non-GMO foods, the organic, natural food and health industry as a whole.
