Sales Deployment Lead (Former Employee) – Rosemont, IL – June 16, 2018
The last year and a half as a deployment lead my position required extensive travel and training at various US Foods locations around the county. I was responsible for training and deploying a corporate initiative known as Cookbook, using predictive analytics to provide actionable intelligence to our sellers and sales management. For 17 years prior I managed a sales team primarily in the Northwest Ohio Market. US Foods has undergone many changes over the years I worked there. The company is evolving and streamlining all operations since going public in May 2016. This has caused a lot of good people to end up either relocating or move on in many departments that were reorganized. I chose the latter. The hardest part of the job for most in sales is managing the operational inefficiencies that exist primarily because of rapid changes and labor issues. Managing through the same issues year after year was the least favorable part of my career there. The most enjoyable was helping direct reports or others whom many became friends grow in their careers and manage through the processes. The culture depends on the location but most are very good cultures to work in. I would recommend a career at US Foods.
