Driver (Former Employee) – Lebanon, TN – January 4, 2019
They say its 4 dispatches and you'll be home daily. It depends on where your route is to if you even get home that day. Insurance is high priced. You can make more money by running more miles or by delivering more pieces but many of those routes are held by senior drivers. Not a lot of opportunities for advancement so if that's what you're hoping for....keep looking.
Selector/Picker (Former Employee) – Westampton, NJ – December 25, 2018
This job should start at $18.50 an hour plus benefits and incentive for what they want you to do. Job is physical but not impossible. You want people to work like a machine, they pay them accordingly. Benefits could be better and not cost as much.
CDL Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Westampton, NJ – December 4, 2018
PFG sells you the 4 day a week thing. trust me on the 1 day off u get during the week youll be so beat up you wont want to leave your house. if you don't live near the yard youll be sleeping in the truck Monday and Tuesday and again thurs and Friday. if u live kinda far its not even worth driving homwe because u have to turn around and come right back. lots of waiting around for your load. u get paired up with a guy u may not like. you hand unload every single box on truck in busy kitchens and cold freezers. you drive while u are exhausted and you drive far to get to your routes. you can easily be out from 4am to 9pm then be expected to head back out at 3am.. I worked there before electronic logs so they got away with shady sh.t back then
pay was decent. got paid a seniority pay if u were there like 10 years u got paid 100 bux before u even bunched in for the day, they u get ur piece pay on top. so guys who have been there a long time made a killing. new guys work hard and make average money.( not worth it) u have to stick around to make decent money but its a hard job to stick with.. u do get free burgers or tenders at nearly every stop. I remember doing all TGI FRIDAYS like 3-5 a day. I quit cause I was just exhausted on the day to day grind. it didn't feel comfortable to me
nothing fun about this place they work u like a dog
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Gainesville, FL – November 11, 2018
11/11/2018 Gainesville fl location i worked here 6 months out of trucking school pay was around 875 a week after taxes but expect to be in a truck 60-70 hrs a week with another person.. 15-20 hrs of that is sleep time in the truck they expect u to sleep otw to your first stop or otw back while your other guy drives well sleeping in these rigs is very hard. you work Monday and Tuesday Wednesdays off and back Thursday and Friday management is good but the people they hire here are not the easiest to work with. most times i would come in between 8pm-12am not get back till around 5-6 pm and once a week i found myself on the truck for 21-24 hrs straight and they expect u to be back in 4 hrs and around holidays working for pfg really sucks.
i was getting free food multiple times a week depending on rest managers
I worked there almost 4 years and 3 times I was passed on for promotion even though I knew the job. They hired someone with no experience. I would work from 3 pm on any given day and not get off until the following day at 4 or 5 pm . Did this for at least 2 years and no respect. If you have no kids and no life and don’t mind playing stupid this is a good place for you to work.
Good health insurance but cost you over 300 dollars for family every two weeks
Annoyed employee (Current Employee) – Kendallville, IN – October 18, 2018
If you feel like being under paid and dont want to have a life again then this job is right for you. Managment don't care about you they only care about themselves. They don't listen to the employees they work you until you can't work no more and you won't make thirty buck's an hour either just putting that out there. Yeah they'll butter you up every once and a while with free food and have cookouts with expired hamburgers but that's the least of your worries. The biggest thing to worry about is getting hit by another employee on a pallet jack because there blitzed outta their mind then just blow it off like nothing happened if you're not seriously injured. Safety should be the number one priority in the warehouse but it's not even close it's usually football so hopefully you like sports. Yeah they do have safety meetings but they are more concerned about the driver's safety and not so much about the warehouse safety especially if it's football season. The pallet jacks and forklifts are constantly breaking down probably because of all the cracks and bumps in the concrete or just the lack of knowledge in the maintenance department but that's none of my business. On the plus side the benefits are pretty decent if you wanna pay an arm and a leg for them. You can listen to music or the football game to stay in the loop with your ear buds in so you don't have to hear all the other workers complaining about how many people called in that day and making your shift even longer or just to escape all the football talk. You will be lied to on a weekly basis. If they don't like you theymore... will make sure you know it. They pick and choose favorite's and hang you out to dry any chance they get. Everyone is very hush hush when they know something is wrong. There is a reason why they can't keep worker's but are to blind to see it or are just to busy filling out their fantasy football sheets. Upper management has not one clue about how the warehouse is ran although they really like to think they do. You will hardly even notice there is management that works there. Here's a tip maybe start listening to the people who actually make the company money and who actually know the in's and out's of the warehouse then maybe you wouldn't have such a high turnover rate and a bad reputation. I'm not out to give this company a bad name by any means because we'll they already did that to themselves. I'm just giving an honest review of how this company really is. And if they don't like it then maybe they should actually come out from behind the office put down the cell phones and worry about the job and not football or how miserable your life is because the game's not on yet and do something about it but then again that would require getting up out of there comfy chairs and working.less
Extra long hours with some harassment and football talk here and there.
Clueless management who really care.... About football
Worked here for a few months, something happened, and they hung me out to dry. Management does not care about the employees, as long as the product gets delivered. If your health and well-being suffer because of it, they don't care. I would not work here again, and I would never recommend anyone else work here. They claim they went to Elogs before the mandate to get ahead of the curve, but if you go with the FOIA to get copies of their audits, you'll find that is yet another lie.
I have been with PFG for close to 20 years and it has provided me with great opportunities, great pay and benefits. No company is perfect but for those willing to work hard and take responsibility for your job the opportunities are available.
Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Elkton, MD – August 15, 2018
I would recommend this company to anyone that fresh out of trucking school. They good management and other associates are friendly and willing to help if you need. Wouldn't have left of it wasn't medical.
Manager (Current Employee) – Rock Hill, SC – August 14, 2018
PFG pays selector incentive for each case you touch. Faster you go the more money you make. If you have a good error rate, you get bonus on top of that. Culture is changing at PFG, they are bring in better candidates because they are paying better and listening to their associates.
Incentive pay, discounted food and friendly atmosphere.
work some holidays. but not Thanksgiving or Christmas
Director of Purchasing (Current Employee) – Lebanon, TN – August 14, 2018
Have been with the company over 30 years, have been able to advance in job status every 4 or 5 years. Great local people to work with. Working with people who have become friends outside of work hours has been a great plus.
Order Selector (Current Employee) – Lebanon, TN – August 14, 2018
You work hard and get paid a good wage for what you do. The harder you work, the more you get paid. Management is very understanding of "life" and work with you in the event of emergencies. There is lots of hands on training if you want to be cross trained for different departments. There are never any lay offs like other companies.
Driver (Former Employee) – Shafter – August 10, 2018
Do not work here if looking for experience, 25% will be driving and 75% will be unloading once you look for another job they might not accept that so if you have 3 months experience in reality you'll have 1 month
Low pay for the amount of responsibilities you supposed to perform
Accounts (Former Employee) – Lebanon, TN – June 8, 2018
At first this place was a nice place to work but as time went along you was not paid enough for the amount of work they expected you to perform. You was told if you needed help to ask but when you asked it seemed you never received the help and was asked why you couldn't get your work done in time. Wouldn't recommend working here.
