    Pros

    The company offers so much opportunity and will only continue to do so as management works diligently to expand the company internally with talent and technology. Management regularly encourages employees to ask questions and learn more about the process of food distribution as a whole.

    Cons

    The technology is currently behind but this is a top priority for management. Should not be an issue for much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing in talented employees who are hungry for success.

    Unfortunately there are NO pros

    They like to micromanage employees. Cameras everywhere which shows no trust. Upper Management only cares about themselves.They are not people oriented and very unapproachable. Not a pleasant working atmosphere. It is like slave labor.

    Hire people that know how to manage and care about the employees.

    I worked at Julius Silvert, Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Only reason to work here was a paycheck until I could find anything else.

    Cons

    Many downsides to working here. Overworked and underpaid. Long hours and very difficult to take off any time that you earned. The owners are the only ones allowed to make any decisions - everything has to be approved by them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like the company is a dictatorship and trust your employees.

    Pros

    Great team environment. Very supportive and knowledgeable staff. Great pay. Benefits. Non Micro Managed. Lots of products to keep you busy. Vendors send edible presents.

    Cons

    Parking is not good. Its free to park on the street but the neighborhood is kinda scary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. finding twenty words when I am so new is difficult but here I am trying to improve the bad reviews because I was scared at first, but I see now that none of those opinions have shown themselves to me to be true.

    Pros

    Good pay, friendly coworkers and nice upper management, owners are nice once you get to know them. The pay is decent upon hire and only gets better as long as your willing to work for it.

    Cons

    A lot of the days the drivers work 10+ hours a day and add 6 days a week on top of the long days it can make for a cranky and burnt out employee very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little more appreciation to the "faces" of the company and don't keep running them into the ground by making them work the 10-14 hour days 6 days a week.

    Pros

    Met some great productive hard working people that deserve better opportunities. I hope they find more appreciative management and whom will pass on to those employees who well deserve it.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is dealing with the one owner and upper management. They treat employees like first graders and micromanage every one in all departments. Rules vary for each employee and change daily. Some department managers are asked to do unethical things. Phone calls are recorded as well as audio cameras throughout the bldg. Owner is beyond being Paranoid and have major trust issues.

    Advice to Management

    Management it's time to move on and do something good with your tallents. Owners, grow up or take some meds.
