Accounts Payable Manager (Former Employee) – Rocklin, CA – July 12, 2018
Time fly at UNFI, there are always new projects and many changes to cross over. during the last 10+ years with UNFI I was challenged with many changes to keep up with the fast growth and I had the privilege to work with hard working professionals who carried the company's vision with great pride and ownership. during my journey with UNFI, I gained so much knowledge and grew to obtain new skills every time I was tested with new project or change. UNFI greatest assets are the people who believed in its mission.
Sales Consultant Representative (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, VA – July 17, 2018
At first hours were crazy and the work was extremely over barring. It took company approximately 3 Months to make some changes to my unbearable schedule. Finally company made some changes and we lost the contract. Very unfortunate they UNFI only gave us a 2 week notice of loss of employment and a lousy 2 week severance package.
Typical day was to support daily job failures, support user community when issue or questions arose. Work with our DBA. Develop custom programs and interfaces.
Had opportunity to learn Lawson administrative skills and security skills.
Management was fair and supportive.
Culture was interesting because this was an opportunity to work with a natural food distribution center and was able to learn a little about certifications and the type of customers in the natural food industry.
Hardest part of job was daily failures of certain interfaces, some caused by technical glitches and some caused by user double submission of jobs at the same time. Data file recover and job reruns were needed often.
Most enjoyable part of the job was the relationships created with IT staff and our User community who always appreciated my assistance as issues arose.
ORDER SELECTOR/ FORKLIFT OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – June 27, 2018
good work place loved my coworkers. some of the supervisors and managers were disrespectful and mean. because they have the power of authority they think they can just treat workers the way they want to. but overall it was a fun work environment because of the workers.
Driver/Laborer (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – June 26, 2018
Enjoyable hands on friendly problem solving. A melting pot of culture who enjoyed working with each other and helping each other and politeness and respect as well as concern for each other. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. From the customers I delivered to to the warehouse to the office people all great.
Service Desk Contractor Tier (Former Employee) – Dayville, CT – June 19, 2018
I absolutely loved working for unfi i would definitely work there again if i could fine one local. the Job was great the pay was great and the management and people were also great. the only downfall I would say was scheduling. at the time i was a student so I was only able to work a first shift. But every Three weeks everyone's schedule would rotate and for myself, residing in Providence, RI did not help with the commute to Dayville, CT as the result my car ended up breaking down and I was unable to continue my contract with UNFI and JVT advisers
I loved working at UNFI. Starting pay was great and training was straightforward. They give you 6 weeks to practice and get used to working orders and start making your rates. Its very fast paced and it can be a lot of physical labor but if you don't ind the work out then i would recommend this job.
Claims Representative (Former Employee) – Rocklin, CA – June 18, 2018
For me this was a terrible place to work although I have heard it is better in some departments. Overall working environment was worse than being in junior high. Lots of drama. Management was terrible and pointed out your mistakes all the time. Also thought we needed to be babysat all the time. Company doesn't know what they are doing anymore and nobody really likes to work there unless your upper management than it's great. Most people are very sarcastic and negative and unhappy. It was the most stressful job I ever had. Plus, they are a multibillion dollar company yet they pay pretty low for the amount of money they make and for the area we live in. Probably the reason why they move some of the departments to the east coast, it's cheaper.
Warehouse Selector (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – June 13, 2018
Great place to work if you don’t have a life or have a family to go home to. Very long hours when I say long I don’t mean 12 hour days I’m talking about 16. Work is very repetitive. Repeating the same process over and over. I don’t recommend working here. Save your joints and back for another job.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Moreno Valley, CA – June 8, 2018
Long Hours if on 2nd shift. 9 to 15 hour days with split shift. management is clueless. Position is not set in stone company will move you without hesitation. (department to department) It is going though a UNION problem at the moment. (2018)
