    I worked at Gordon Food Service full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours but many hours to make money, working with customers, products specialist and technology. Benefits and profit sharing are great.

    Cons

    Middle management over load, to many meetings taking you off the road. Commission sales loaded to private label products which are middle of the road quality.

    Advice to Management

    Less meetings and more time on the road selling. Be more aware of opportunities to expanding existing business. Management always demanding new accounts even if they are more work than their worth just to look good on a spread sheet.

    I have been working at Gordon Food Service part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    works around your school schedule

    Cons

    the raises are garbage and dont happen when they are supposed to even if you have a good review. Ive worked there for 9 years (since high school and to get through college) and i make like 40 cents over minimum even though ive had good reviews. The pay is absolute garbage and completely unfair. They will even hire people at higher wages than people who have been there 5+ years.

    Advice to Management

    pay your people better! we work all day lifting heavy on our feet and you hardly pay us over minimum yet people who sit all day somehow get paid better than us??
