Pros

After 25 years of jobs in a lot of other companies, UNFI is simply the best company I have experienced. Most departments behave with Integrity.
The work/life balance, benefits and rewards are there for all honest, hard-working employees.

Cons

Need more frequent town hall meetings to keep everyone up to date with changes.
A greater need for inter-department/inter-DC communication.
Larger 401(k) match.

Advice to Management

Perhaps consider incentives for employees to shop in customer stores.

    Pros

    Competitive wage in the ONLY thing going! Be careful; corporate in Providence, R.I. VERY slow @ responding to any type of requests for employees, and local office makes excuses or covers-up for corporates incompetence.

    Cons

    A mgr wasn't fired after starting a physical fight with driver-employee. Person in office reporting mysteriously left company and nothing more said. I feel sorry for customers, as when they call for service, they get the run-around via a "call-center" located thousands of miles away. Poor customer service, and Drivers hear constant grips about it.

    Advice to Management

    UNFI has the potential to be a very good company but senior management needs to be replaced. If Providence, R.I. officers understood what was really going-on at whse locations, they would probably terminate all managers. Unreasonable demands on Drivers especially since strike @ Auburn,WA location 2012-2013. Customers calls need to be answered by the same whse they are serviced from, instead of a call-center location that does not understand customer and can't answer customer's questions correctly.
