I worked at Food Services of America full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Autonomy to accomplish work, flat organization gives access to all levels of management, good pay, decent benefits. Building and gym are very nice. Some co-workers are very intelligent.

    Cons

    Company deteriorating due to lack of leadership and an increasingly challenging business environment that should cause the company to change and innovate, but company prefers to hold on to existing business processes and not deal with scary changes. Much of this due to longer-tenured employees who are stuck in inefficient ruts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to cultivate and retain top employees so you can stop the brain drain

    Pros

    Great benefit, pay could be a bit stronger, most of the people go out of their way to help when needed. Great crew despite the one foot out the door for retirement management.

    Cons

    Core values they beat you over the head with it as long as it doesn't get in the way of the bottom line. Customer service is a joke they would know what it was if it hit them in the head. Routing department couldn't rout there way out of a paper bag due too the tenable computer programs they use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember who earns the money that pays your salary. And think long and hard about the people standing in front of the customers day in and day out, in the rain, snow, ice, wind, and heat. Maybe ask what the customers are saying and wanting before making call as to where this company is going to go. FIRE EVERYONE IN CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT and start over with people that make the customers problems there own, and don't give up on issues tell they are resolved. The invest in newer technology that makes the front line employees job more efficient ie routing software that actually knows the distance between 2 points that are more then 100 miles away from each other.
