    I have been working at Performance Food Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay..home time excellent I've been working for them close to 2 years got my first route less than a year...trucks and trailers pretty descent. ..management cool ...respectful. .. I can't complain to much ...great career opportunity of advancement

    Cons

    Long hours...but its on how quick you work.... Can't stand the cameras in the truck... Very nick picky about that camera when it goes off ...hate that dern camera....the warehouse sometimes only worries about efficiency instead of the quality of the load ...mispicks ...items on the wrong pallet ...pallets loaded in the wrong spot...not much but sometimes the warehouse workers get complacent with the quality of their job...

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really ...just transportation and the warehouse needs to hold the warehouse workers to the same standard as the truck drivers

    Pros

    ..... Thinking..... still thinking..... I got nothing! Seriously though, I can’t think of one my quality of life is slowly diminishing here. See below and stay away. When you interview here ask the hard questions. Ask about transportation issues, warehouse issues and I suggest contacting a few employees on LinkedIn before accepting their offer.

    Cons

    They say “We Deliver” but the lie detector tested that was a lie. Union drivers=horrible delivery service. Trucks late daily or they just don’t finish routes. Customers are not happy! Warehouse is atrocious. They can’t seem to figure out how to load a truck properly so the driver isn’t picking through skids of product throwing it everywhere. They claim to be a “team”, only 1/4 of the players are. Buyers are ridiculous they don’t communicate at all. Try getting an answer from 90% of the people here, you are on your own. Losing accounts left and right. We were actually told at a meeting “Open 6 accounts and you should have 3 left” like it’s acceptable. Training is obsolete, no brand training, no computer training nothing. Unacceptable. I could go one for days but you get the point. Do yourself a favor go work for Usfoods the innovator in food service! Wish I never left!

    Advice to Management

    Clear the slate, get new management.

    Pros

    Good pay, weekends off, great benefits

    Cons

    communication with dispatch can be a little bit of a hassle
    managers dont have your back, they have favorites
    when make a complaint about something going on for a while, they'll say they work on it, but nothing gets done

    Advice to Management

    speak up for your drivers

    Pros

    Home weekends. Good insurance. Always overtime available. Get your own truck. Maintained semis. You are paid as long as the wheels are rolling.

    Cons

    Low compensation compared to other companies. Long hours. Hard work. Yearly raises are a joke. Only two holidays a year.

    Advice to Management

    Increase minimum. Increase piece and mileage rate yearly for seniority pay.

    Pros

    The benefits and salary are good for employees. Excellent business model though executed poorly in the triangle area. Logistics, management and warehouse needs improvements.

    Cons

    Tough business in and of itself. The lack of managerial support on street, poor warehouse management and logistics needs improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Work the ethics expected of reps

    Pros

    hourly pay, there is 1 router that is good and should be running the show in transportation.

    Cons

    Horrible equipment, Pallet jacks die after 5 mins of use, its a revolving door in the transportation office. Ive been there 1.5 years and they are on their 3rd wave of supervisors, and you cant move up because they hire only from outside. The last wave of supervisors were all from Athens (the garbage company) They signed a HORRIBLE union contract where you pay for your medical (PPO only no HMO option) you pay your own 401k (no pension) no overtime until after 40 hours a week and they dont protect jobs, ive seen 12 drivers be fired for petty BS and not once has a union rep showed up to defend them. The Union NEVER forgets to take that dues though. The Dues is the money we pay them for existing because thats literally ALL they do. Local 630 is a joke. You also need to constantly monitor your paychecks as they will short you any chance they can get to do so and when you have a problem with it, HR doesnt answer the phone nor return phone calls, i had to find out the HR ladies personal cell phone number to get my money after a month of no returned calls.

    Advice to Management

    What advice can you give? It will be a new wave of management in a month that have 0 experience in foodservice.
