    Wonderful company!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company that employs team members with a great work ethic, bright & fun. They frequently have group events, bbqs, contests for the teams etc. - keeps the work environment nice. CEO; Jason Ackerman knows all his team members - commendable!FreshDirect really does have fantastic food - some of the best fruit and produce I have ever enjoyed! Close to the 7 train and LIRR..

    ConsCorporate Office is in an industrial area - safe, but not an environment for easyoutside walks, lunches etc..

    Time well spent.

    Driver's Helper (Former Employee)
    Long Island City, NY

    ProsGreat tips. What other job allows you to walk into the homes of celebrities on a regular basis? Customers are usually grateful for all you do, hence the great tips. Great atmosphere in the hub. Great benefits. There's always hours for everyone, you can take double shifts and 6th days if needed.

    ConsSome employees are extremely hard to work with, half don't care about doing the job right, and the other half don't care about you. Having to work outside when there's a foot of snow on the ground. Helpers and Runners being interchangeable positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have none.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great company, some odd hours

    ProsA great relaxed work environment. You feel ownership of the company because of the atmosphere created. A lot of transparency and senior management pushes this transparency to all levels.
