    Good people to work with and very supportive.

    District Sales Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsTrend setter with new technologies and products. Lots of support from sales specialists. Most sales employees are 10plus years with company which speaks a lot. Good communication from senior management.

    ConsToo much administrative work. Ordering system is very dated. Tedious to pull sales data.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep things simple. Update order entry platform. Reduce administrative work and let sales go do their job and add new customers and grow business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent opportunity for the right person.

    Territory Manager (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsAs in any aspect of life, but especially sales, you have to play to win. For those that care to get out of the house, get out of the car and actually walk into a foodservice entity, there is money to be made. Work / life balance is great as long as you are organized and intentional in your actions. Sure, initiatives are crammed down our throats daily, but it's sales...play the numbers. There is a wide gap between the earners and the complainers for an obvious reason. Versus our competitors, I have to truly believe that we are a cut above the rest in quality, performance and morality.

    ConsObviously, selling out to Sysco is heart breaking. I had every hope of retiring from USF one day, albeit 20-30 years away.
    Transportation/routing has been a severe set back in customer relations, but so goes the broad line industry.
    Procurement could use significant directional aid as out of stocks are rampant and embarrassingly damaging to the sales force for the better part of the last 12 months.
