    I have been working at US Foods

    Pros

    Leaving. Leaving. Leaving. Leaving and Leaving.

    Cons

    This place is being aquired by Sysco and Management is doing every slimy thing they can to get rid of those with seniority and higher pay...as expected. They are lying and being slick on write ups and Union has NO clout also as expected cause stewards are afraid of going against management too because they know they could be next. No care given by HR that proper steps arent being taken and that company is breaking major DOT hour laws but picking and choosing who to weed out. Hmmmm...wonder why? SYSCO can you answer that for us? Bye Bye US Foods is right. Hope all you people writing about not knowing how the transition will effect you are either at the bottom of the pay pool or have job opportunities lined up. Im watching the discrimination of older employees and those with many years in and high pay and the discrimination and abusive actions by Management especially in certain places and departments is completely unethical and they will certainly be sued. I guess they dont care though because they are already in the hole and its every man for himself it seems. Sad time to be an employee there now. Run! Run! if you can and like they said before way better places to work that value employee's who work hard, stay late and help others. Cant wait to watch a couple of these guys go down with the sinking ship!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Seriously, I cannot think of one. Just being honest. Well, you do get paid every week, but once Sysco takes over, you will be paid every 2weeks.

    Cons

    Wow, where to start. Paychecks are wrong on a weekly basis, and it's not in your favor. I have personally worked with new hires that never interviewed in person and 1month after being on the job, Charlotte calls them in for orientation. I have been asked to work another 12hrs after just completing a full shift of driving. Hello, D.O.T restrictions?? Management will lie to you just to cover their rears. They will hire you for one job position and have you doing something else to cover for their sorry hiring practices. They will also cut you loose(fire) for made up reasons. Many of good employees that were well liked by their customers have suffered this fate. Really sad. The equipment you drive is old, below avg, barely D.O.T compliant, and leaves you broke down for many unpaid hours. A lot of this blame goes to our Truckshop Manager, nothing ever gets fixed, just codes reset. I really don't think the guy could run an Emissions Stand. Sorry so long, I'm an honest, hard working employee with many driving/customer service awards, just tired of the bs. Everything I have spoke of here is true, if you have options, choose another company to invest your future with. Good luck.

    Sorry, I'm past that nonsense.
