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

    Pros

    Money is excellent, management cares about you

    Cons

    When you are new- everything is new- they train you for two weeks in one delivery area, when you are released- every stop is new- we're talking 10-12 stops a day and they are all new. Long days and a lot of physical work. Equipment provided is not always adequate- forget it if they send you to Boston and you are unfamiliar. You have no say in what area of New England you will be working in everyday. 4am start time, back to the yard by 4pm if you are lucky. The company is really great and they do care about there drivers- just be safe and suck it up for the first 6-9 months and you will soon get consistent daily routes.

    Advice to Management

    Review loads and supply proper delivery equipment as needed.

    I worked at Performance Food Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly office, opportunity to take initiative and make change, well structured internship program with great networking events/resume help workshops, etc.
    The atmosphere is really fun, with an introductory food tour in Richmond for the internship as well as a cooking competition "Intern Iron Chef" where you can win gift cards for your skills in the kitchen! I had a wonderful summer and would recommend to anyone.

    Cons

    Very corporate vibes, so if the solitary cubicle work life doesn't speak to you, this won't be your ideal choice.

    I worked at Performance Food Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the corporate office in a professional level non-managerial role. In general, people in the office seemed to be fairly friendly and helpful. The company is pretty old-school, but has recently added perks like wellness incentives and dress for your day. The corporate culture is fairly down-to-earth and somewhat informal. This is not the company to come to if you are a disrupter or change-maker, but it's a good fit if you're more laid-back. I'm late career and not overly ambitious, so I liked the less-stressful environment. I also appreciated an initiative they started while I was there to bring in disabled students to work in the office, giving them office experience.

    Cons

    The company is very siloed,...not much interchange between different departments, even when it would be useful. Hard-driving people or visionaries with innovative ideas don't fit in here. The company loses good people because of its lack of interest in changing or even improving processes in a meaningful way. There's also a general lack of accountability; many people are just coasting without any consequences for lackadaisical performance.
