Great company so far

Featured review

US Foods selected this as a representative review
I have been here for maybe 2 months now. I would have to say by far it's a great company that cares about family and safety over everything. They will bend over backwards to see that you succeed in the company. My boss is a great guy who has bent over backwards for me and has always been there to answer my questions at his most convenient time. They treat you like family rather than another driver they had to have. Can't wait to see what the future holds for me at this company. Also the pay is fantastic I make a good wage and get good family time everyday.


Everything so far. Third shift can be kind of hard with not getting sleepy.


None so far

Good starting point in career

Good company and easygoing atmosphere. Hybrid schedule is great. Pay is at or above expectations. Advancement and direction for growth is unclear and high turnover at the 3-4 year mark. Not a clear distinction between contractors and full-time employees in terms of who is brought on as direct hire or as contract. Skills and experience are not determining factors in position status or responsibilities.


Easygoing atmosphere


Work easily becomes redundant

Great place to work

Great customers, great work environment, great job to stay physically active. Gave 4/5 stars because just as every local in state jobs have in common is never fixing or looking into things the driver writes up for defects on pre and post trip inspections. Even large companies like us foods still force drivers to run faulty equipment even though it’s been written up for months straight to get fixed.

Lots of work

The Vista location requires you to drive to San Diego on your own gas expense. Management is bad at providing keys and batteries. You have to break pallets because of warehouse. It’s a lot of work for base pay of 23$ not 24

Great culture

Amazing company that really puts you first. Some upper level management can make it all about the numbers but overall amazing. I have enjoyed my time here and see it as a great place to stay and learn.


Great culture


Can be made a numbers game

Good Place to Work

It’s a nice place to work but lots of changes happening in each department and vacation could be better. Benefits are good overall and decent 401k match.
Was this review helpful?

Salary with extra hours required to check all the boxes everyday, poor management, nepotism, and favoritism.

It’s hard to get past the toxic culture, the core values are great if they were followed. This is a company that says they value partnerships with customers but in reality they only value the customer when they can shove more cases on a truck for them. It makes building sales relationships extremely difficult. The best part is the team of specialists that are available to help, although they are stretched thin and pick who they want to work with so it can be hard to get support.

Great company to work for until you mess up!

It's a great job as long as you don't mess up! It's like any other large corporate job, your basically just a number and everyone is replaceable! Don't expect loyalty or many chances if you make mistakes or have an accident no matter how long you have invested with the company! It doesn't matter how much your peers and Supervisors like you, Corperate will terminate you if you skrew up even if your Supervisors fight for you!

Consistency Inconsistent

Inconsistency is the core of this company ! It’s like Groundhog Day “ 365 “ ! Here’s how it works 😀 Every department manager operates their team with their bonuses # 1 no matter how it effects other departments “DAILY “ Absolute Madness Sales, Routing, Warehouse, Transportation, Human Resources, Vp of Location, Management, Supervisor ALL WORK AGAINST EACH OTHER on a daily basis like clock work! 😂 I will say that the real work force actually touching cases for delivery are some of the best people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with them ! It’s just to bad that Us Foods policies go beyond out of their way to ensure a Enjoyable, Healthy WORK HOME BALANCE


Incredible workforce Transportation/ Warehouse

Impossible timeframe to get work done

Incredibly difficult to get 100 percent where they start you at, which is the dry section. Under an hour with as much as 7 pallets in ONE aisle. Proceed with caution.

Early expectations too high

You are on a 90 day probation period.Expected to reach 100% in that time.However, it seems obvious that your actually Expected to reach that point much much sooner.Managment and trainers are some really good, others just not real helpful.A constant push for more and more

Interesting place to work

overall, pretty good experience. Work life balance can use some help. Managment can sometimes be lazy and expect you to work all day every day. Very unrealistic expectations.
