Shuttle truck Driver (Former Employee) – Long Island-Queens, NY – June 7, 2018
I was a shuttle driver for fresh direct in Long Island City and I can say it was the worst experience ever. The warehouse there at review is horrible they are very racist if you are not Spanish they really treat you bad. They management follow you to the bathroom watch your every move if your not Spanish. HR Is in on It too they all stick together.

Growth, stressful and interesting environment to work in
Operations Center Specialist (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 16, 2018
A company that is ok with it's values and tries to progress where it can. It's downfall is merely it's managers not listening to employee feedback and taking actions. Taking shortcuts to issues. I've witness it's growth over 5 years I've been with them. They are currently relocating to a new modern building that will be all in one for them. Here, it's with hope management will improve and the new process will foster the company growth, ease and people. So what is it like working here?
Well, it's, good, bad. At times things can be stressful, management can be weird and not always wanting to improve. This cycles repeats. The company always have some sort of issue with their system, but then next day its ok. Repeat. Pay is OK, but not great, but OK. Benefits are good enough. HR team is wonderful, IT team is OK, and other departments are OK. Culture? Not much here. Career advancement? Only if you fight or you have a good manager that will promote you. It's easy to grow here, but you have to be on the look out and make your own moves.
Benefits, discounts on orders, nice people, new building
Breaks, management, frequent issues, communication
A lot of work for little hours hence unreasonable weekly payment.
Delivery Representative - Runner/ Helper (Current Employee) – Long Island City, NY – April 5, 2018
I feel as if workers should be treated with more respect and listened to when having a knowledgeable input on work topics. Workers shouldn't be working diligently and are not reward for their work ethics.
MFG Supply Chain (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 17, 2018
FD has the entire market share of the most dense city in the world. Unfortunately, the company is run by chefs and not business people and continues to doom themselves. They do not learn from mistakes or look forward to possible issues in the future. No one in company works collaboratively towards any goal.
Warehouse Selector (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 13, 2018
Its a great place to start a career if you want. They promote from within A lot. A typical day for me consist of going around the wear house and selecting items off a list for package to be sent for delivery. I learned the importants of effeicency while dealing with orders on a large scale.The hardest part would probably the long hours.
Supply Chain Management Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 31, 2018
The Internship program is project based so you put the hours necessary to finish the task, and meet with your supervisor weekly for updates. The major issue is that the internship program does not necessarily guarantee a job offer.
Contract Employee (Current Employee) – Long Island City, NY – January 27, 2018
Do not even think of applying at this place. The absolute worst company to work for. Do not stop and collect, just bypass and go. Daily stressful environment and HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT. They hire and let go employees as if it's a joke. You know your work, however, management change daily processes which make it even harder and of course encounters numerous delays for other departments. Management makes too much for salary, but yet employees are paid horribly. They also go to the employee store many times a day, while those that actually work barely get to leave their chairs or even eat. I am looking to leave as soon as possible. Also, management and the company do not care that you have a life. Just bypass this company!
Driver (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 31, 2017
Fresh Direct in Philadelphia is very disorganized and seemingly prejudiced. There are too many different directives from various people in management. They lie to your face. They tell you to come in for work, and more than 3 times did they send me home, after I reported to work.
Top management does not care of line and middle level employees
Management (Former Employee) – Long Island City, NY – October 13, 2017
Will do survey of people's opinions and when they come back negative they tell people leave if you are not happy instead of looking at root causes of issues and unhappiness in workplace. Politics and favorites played.
