    Pros

    They have great benefits & a great Union (Teamster), that looks out for your best interests.

    Challenges you face there is the fast pace & most of the time you have to do more to make up for someone else slack.

    I worked at US Foods as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the people-oriented culture and great corporate values. People I've worked with are all super nice. It's more than a workplace but a big family to me.

    Cons

    The upcoming merger with Sysco may bring about quite a lot of uncertainties. Many people chose to leave the company before anything unexpected could happen to them.

    I worked at US Foods (less than a year)

    Pros

    The management was nice. They had a job to do for a job I wasn't quite ready for. The pay was excellent with good benefits. They're always hiring for other positions for those currently employed. You learn how to move faster but smarter.

    Cons

    It's a fast paced environment. I would say it is for the young, the night owls, and single people unless they get plenty of family time in since it takes many years to get on the day shift. In order to be considered for other positions within the company you have to earn it. Sometimes people who do earn it still aren't considered for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe hire younger people with lots of energy if you're concerned about image with the constant hiring/firing process.
