A job, Not a career
Lift Operator (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 13, 2018
You will work every Sunday as it is mandatory with Saturday off and one week day. You are a 50 hour employee so 10 hours of overtime is built into your schedule. During busy season you will work well over 10 hours a day. There is a high employee turnover so you will see new faces often. The material handling equipment is old and limited. Get to work EARLY of you want a good lift or pallet jack. Making your Production percentage will be your biggest stress. Breaks are every 2.5 hours from clock-in and lunch at 4.5 but breaks arent mandatory. With the work load and production don't expect to take ALL of your daily breaks. At the end of the day, it is a warehouse and that comes witg typical warehouse Drama, that said you get paid every week and with overtime you will make almost a $1K a week before taxes.
Pros
Weekly Pay
Cons
Long Hours

If you dont want to work not the job for you
Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Howell, NJNovember 10, 2018
Management is fair unless you dont pick over 95 percent. Required to work about 40-50 hours a week more/less depends on business. Get 2 life happens and 10 points for attendance. Some nights were stressful but if you like money this job is for you.
Pros
overtime, incentive for hitting over 100 percent rate, job security
Cons
floor cracks, equipment broken, sometimes very long work nights

A warehouse with managment that actually cares about its employees.
Freezer Selector (Former Employee) –  York, PAOctober 30, 2018
I truly loved working for this company. While I may only be able to speak for myself as many have had different experiences, the time I spent at UNFI was adequately compensated for while my concerns were adressed in a timely and sufficient manner.
Pros
Great work/life balance and laid back, hands-off approach to management.
Cons
Some favoritism, rules not being enforced uniformly and a lack of communication between department leads.

Backstocker (Former Employee) –  Moreno Valley, CAOctober 30, 2018
Their turn over rate is really high. They fire people daily. The supervisors are pointless they do not listen to your complaints or if you need something new.

Hard long hours and tiring
Selector/ Pallet Jack Operator (Current Employee) –  Dayville, CTOctober 30, 2018
Hard long hours where you must meet a requirement of production which is sometimes unattainable. If you have a family that you would like to see this is not the job for you.Managment is overall decent would be a better place if you had two days off in a row. Some good things are the money is good and you can advance if you do your job good.

Coding Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Dayville, CTOctober 29, 2018
Management sucks (nice to your face but will chew you up when they leave). Too much work and not enough pay. Always changing what we are doing. Doing everyone else job with not much time left to do your own. False hopes all the time.

Warehouse/Distribution Professional
Warehouse Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Lancaster, TXOctober 22, 2018
I typically work 12 to 13 hours. This job is very demanding at times. At times, it is very rewarding and the new GM is doing a good job of correcting some of the production issues that have held us back. The new management seems to be changing the D.C. in a positive way.
Pros
Steady work.
Cons
Work a lot of hours.

Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 19, 2018
Had to cover sales rep route. Did not know where I would go until you got a call in the morning. Sometimes I had to travel very far. I had to pack out product from a pallet. Management tracks the time it takes to finish work. Trainer was very experienced. Job was very stressful. Had to be efficient and fast. If you are slow they will tell you. Have to be prompt all the time. Made some good friends.

Dept. Manager / Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Chesterfield, NHOctober 18, 2018
Work flow didn't always give time for effective use of cross training techniques for appropriate staffing. Local managers and directors have little impact on corporate decision making, sometimes leading to feeling left in the dark.
Pros
excellent local management
Cons
Corporate directors were too distant to effect cohesive change

UNFI is a great place to work. I was able to learn new skills and work in a different environment than I was typically used to. I would not hesitate to work there again.
