    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, vacations, training, car allowance, 401k , good products and sales tools. Great training program for rookies and unseasonably TM'S.

    Cons

    long hours and hard to hit commissions. Promised to give new Territory Managers time to grow business before being put on commissions beware of that promise because they will change that to commission in the first year. This is a job that you are married to 7 days a week.If the company makes a mistake it always comes back on you.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to be a high tech company reinventing the wheel and get back to the basics of customer service, good prices and quality products.

    Pros

    The Food Service industry is a very interesting and exciting business to be an analyst in and US Foods has a very good strategic plan to keep the company ranked at the top.

    Cons

    Running too lean in some areas and require a lot of hours on salaried roles with minimal perks or compensations other than the annual bonus. A very "rat race" culture that seems to be accepted and expected by management. The work/homelife balance is not a priority in most upper management styles. It is up to the individual to "fight" for that balance.

    Advice to Management

    With the pace and the expectations at an all time high and the anticipation that this is only getting higher, it would be a very logical and an appreciated gesture to implement a 1 or 2 day a week work from home option. Many companies do it for salaried roles and this has proven to increase productivity.

    Pros

    Teamster Benefits/Wages. Room for advancement, if you can survive probationary period.

    Cons

    New Drivers all start P/T. Work hours vary and are scattered. 90 day probation is actually "90 working days" which can be stretched by company for over 6 months depending on how many days you actually work. No benefits or wage increase until after probation is met. Company only values one thing - being cost effective, which means employee's become expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Place more value on employees who are hard working and loyal, as they are truly the backbone of the company. US Foods was once a very prestigious and great company to work for. Sadly no more.

    Pros

    Lots of areas that someone could work in. Company spans nationwide - so if someone wanted relocation, it is possible.

    Cons

    Employee Morale very low. You have to be savvy to get by people and departments that are selfish. The company's various distribution centers don't often unite for the benefit of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do a better job on reducing expenses, reduce middle management layers, focus on uplifting employee morale.

    Pros

    I made great money and enjoyed working hard in the non union warehouse. I had very few bad nights and the 6th day was only mandatory every fifth week.

    Cons

    I'm in a union warehouse now where you can be forced to work 6 nights a week, no matter what your original schedule. If you can't make it, you get a write up. You get paid $10/hr less and can't make plans on your day off. Oh, and this warehouse will be shut down with the merger. Yup, I'll be transferring as soon as I can break my lease.

    Advice to Management

    Management should have enough help to allow their employees to have a life outside of work.
