    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Sales Service Delivery Driver in Imperial, PA

    I worked at Gordon Food Service full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits. Retirement worth staying for. HR really tries. Physically demanding.

    Cons

    Incentives inconsistent and no one is held accountable for reviewing incentives as given to employees correctly. This also means other areas are lax and costs this DC losses. Unreasonable requests to go into unsafe areas to get the job done during bad weather. Chains are not put on the trucks unless you requested them. Very physically demanding. Lots of disconnects between departments. Only one dispatcher and your mostly on your own if there's a problem. You better have your truck unloaded with 10 to 12 hours even if you dont know where your going and have 20 stops. Never bring product back and deliver it no matter what.
