good money, LONG LONG hours.
Order Selector (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NC27 December 2016
ive worked as a selector for about 5.5 years now. this by far, is one of the toughest environments ive worked in. 8 hours a night 5 nights a week is normal and still pretty tough for a selector. however, if you plan on working here, you'll be working 11-12 hours a night EVERY night. im on my 2nd week here and my body feels like i got hit with a train.
the money is good, but not for 12 exhausting hours a night. you dont make incentive, you just get "raises" every 4 weeks. and if you missed 1 case in 1,000 you dont get a raise.
Pros
decent money
Cons
horribly long hours, not enough compensation for the work

Good Compensation for Hard Work
Night Sele (Current Employee) –  Salem, VA27 November 2016
Jobs like this are hard to come by with regard to compensation. On the flip side this job will take a toll on your body. Some of the slots you pick from are only a couple feet off the ground and you will have to crawl to pick something that may way 35-50 Lbs. Other times the slot may be 5 feet off the ground and the only way possible to grab the item is to climb. They preach safety, but under these circumstances it is only preached because you are not paid to be safe. You are paid to be productive. There is no way to do this job for years and not have back pain. Nonetheless, I know that some selectors make $70,000 per year. I would say the average selector makes $45-50K. Pretty much everyone is overworked and irritated. Management seems to care and somehow seems like they are not doing enough.
Pros
Compensation, Weekends off
Cons
10 hr days, night shift, poor working conditions

It's a job
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Swedesboro, NJ11 December 2016
Long hours and incompetent managers. The good supervisors are overworked and under appreciated. This division is WEAK at the top!!! (People making big money to Direct the division don't have a CLUE!)

Don't ever even think about asking for more money.....they will promise you the world, but never deliver.

This is Union environment and most of the employees are great! They will work for you...just respect them. (They are paid well which also helps)

It is a job and you will be paid!!! That's about it....
Pros
The people...and having Friday's off. Benefits are decent too.
Cons
Total lack of leadership! They don't have a clue in this division

Good pay, can be fun, life consuming
Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NY31 December 2016
There is no typical day at work. This can be either good or bad in a sense where there is always a new and exciting product to learn about and sell, however there is always an issue that needs to be resolved.

Thick skin is required for the position of a Territory Manager. This particular role involves mostly rejection and requires the ability to be flexible at all times. There is however, some gratification when a customer is reaping the benefits of your assistance.

Management and co-workers vary. The overall compensation is satisfactory however this isn't any travel compensation.

Nice pay
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OH4 January 2017
Worked here for over 19 years. They pay well so it is hard to leave. Management doesn't have a clue what happens in the warehouse. Corporate likes to dictate what products we need and we have to take them whether we need it or not. Warehouse is almost full but corporate doesn't care. Complete lack of discipline from employees since no one is ever written up. Morale is at an all time low, but management/corporate don't care.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Bad management, poor leadership, lack of communication

Skewed ideals
Lead Analyst, Client Technologies (Former Employee) –  Rosemont, IL6 February 2017
Generally good intentions, however perception on what employees do is often very far off the closer you get to the top. There are a number of leaders who treat employees with very little respect. The problem is some of them are within 2 levels of the top. Not very motivating if your leaders are rude or disrespectful people.
Pros
good pay
Cons
diminishing benefits, lack of career growth opportunities

The workplace used to be famly oriented, NOW leaders do not know Who their employees are or what they do.
National Account Sales Support (Former Employee) –  Garland, TX22 January 2017
Management needs to treat employees equally. Favoritism is an everyday reality. The layoff was unfair. People with many years of service were let go. With them went the working knowledge of the Foodservice Industry.
Pros
Benefits were the biggest Pro
Cons
Equalitity is not practiced at this company

You Never stopped learning
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Plymouth, MN5 December 2016
You were kept on your toes frequently. You never stopped learning. To cross train was the easiest I have ever seen. Everyone was treated as a equal. The interaction with the sales reps,distributers and cutomers would alway expand your knowledge. My saying when I worked there was if I didn't learn something new when I left I didn't go to work. It was the only job I had that took a very lengthy time to learn. It was so worth the time
Pros
the benefits, pay and ability to learn
Cons
can't think of any

General Labor (Current Employee) –  Sidney, OH4 March 2017
Fine place to work, favoritism is shown in Just about every dept. new associates get more benefits than associates who have more experience and more seniority. People with 5+ years have to work nonstop, while people with less than a year get every weekend off.
Pros
You can take expired products home hahaha no joke!
Cons
Very cold. Work every weekend, 6 days a week, 48+ hrs a week.

Route Driver (Current Employee) –  SF Division3 January 2017
This is a good company to work for. Big enough to be able to make a good living and friendly enough in culture to have a feel of a smaller, private company. Definitely would like to transfer if there's an opening.
Pros
Wages, benefits, good atmosphere
Cons
Occasionally size of company thwarts input from employees
