Pros

Everyone is very nice and helpful. Friendly faces everywhere. Convenient location, though downtown would be better than the suburbs, at least it is close to the blue line.

Cons

Culture is strange and leaving before 5 is discouraged even though there are no company hours and many people get there before 8. Others show up at 9 or later and still leave at 5. Strange culture around not having hallway conversations.

    I worked at US Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Scoop ideas were great, BUT they were mostly aligned for Large Metropolitan areas and most of them did not apply to customers that are 'rural'. The money was good for a number of years.

    Cons

    Once they changed the name of the company to "US Foods" things changed. Management started ":bullying" the sales staff...Punishments for not selling Scoop Items..Punishments for not making your goals...Punishments for not picking up new customers...NO HELP from management..Now that Sysco is trying to aquire US Foods it will be a mess. and even more of a mess, if the government allows the buyout. sysco will have a complete Monopoly of the Food Service Industry.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics. Selling is a talent...Most People DO NOT want to put their own orders in on line. They want to deal with a salesperson, with suggestions, ideas, help.
    Poor Management. Clear to the top.

    I have been working at US Foods full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hard pressed to think of any, now.

    Cons

    Silos abound at Corporate, where folks with no Foodservice background go off on their own tangents. Unprofessional boobs at the local level.

    Advice to Management

    All that nepotism won't help you after the Sysco sale is final, now will it?
