I worked at Food Services of America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Awesome, fun managers let you do your thing as long as your numbers are where they need to be. In Outside Sales, you can basically make as much money as you want. The harder you work, the more you make!

Cons

Credit department has very strict parameters to work in. Often not customer friendly and can take this power to higher levels than needed.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the guiding principals. Do not manipulate for your personal agenda.

    I worked at Food Services of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many nice people in all facets of the company. Fast-paced, stable, and locations are in reasonably-priced livable areas.

    Cons

    Goals are overestimated liberally. The resourceful and willingly helping associates are few, and most times unavailable because of the mismanaged workload. The training is close to nil unless you are in sales. Warehouse guys are on such strict schedules, to improve efficiency, that any outside deviation will cause huge delays in alternative departments. There are people in the company who've been there so long that no matter how toxic they are to operations and culture, their out-dated opnions set precedence over innovative strategic efficiency and new ideas. Blantant disregard for temps and not setting clear expectations for the roles they accepted (example not telling a gal in the office that she will spend hours a day in a freezer).

    Advice to Management

    Communicate your expectations and suggest what you feel is best to meet them. People will see ways of solving problems differently and find their own ways to meet these expectations. Unless you set the guidelines early on, you add to the miscommunication and it's unreasonable to reprimand an associate for not know how you want things done.

    I worked at Food Services of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, great people to work with, very nice office/facilities. Plenty of work and even with 15+ years of admin experience I was always learning something new to boost my skillset.

    Cons

    Management was sometimes invisible, almost seemed like they didn't care. I wasn't really able to identify any real opportunity for advancement (though support positions aren't always so upwardly mobile, anyway...)

    Advice to Management

    Be present and engage with your direct reports!
