Worst place I have ever worked
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC8 May 2018
People were "let go" constantly with no notice and the usual reason "the company is going in a different direction".

Typical day at work, 10 hours worth of work on an 8 hour day. Never, ever get caught up but yet they expect you to do more and then you get a "scolding" if you do not complete all of your work in time.

Worst part of the job is staff interaction which is pretty much not allowed.

Best part of the job was the company discount. There were a few nice people to work with there.
Pros
company discount
Cons
Short staffed, employees other than myself at the end of their ropes due to work overload.

JUNIOR ACCOUNTANT (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON11 March 2018
Good company to start out with. Easy to get into due to noncompetitive pay and high turnover at the company. Take on roles beyond the job description due to people quitting. However very many dissatisfied clients due to disorganised management.
Pros
Upwards mobility, low cost grocery
Cons
Low pay, bad work environment, poor management, dissatisfied suppliers and customers

Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 December 2017
Salary and benefits are good. People are okay to work with but for someone who lives far from the area it is not enough to make me stay on the job plus it is physically taxing.

Walkie Jack Pallet Driver, Order Selector (Current Employee) –  Concord, ON17 July 2017
Only been there for nearly 2 months, workers are great, friendly and very helpful. However, these management expect for every order picker to meet 105 qouta per hr which is impossible. Thinking about it gives me a lil stress. Aside from that it's very good place to work at. Organized.
Cons
105 qouta per hr

C level management is brutal
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Concord ON12 June 2017
The problem within the sales organization lies with the fact the you have top heavy management with no experience in the natural food industry. You do however have massive egos.

Horrible company
Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Concord, ON8 June 2017
Terrible company to work for and horrible management. I would not recommend this company to anyone. There are much better places to work. UNFI does not value their staff.

Claims/Credit Representative for Western Canada (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC11 May 2016
I love working for UNFI Richmond.

I had a bit of a commute and the salary was not what I had wanted but I continue to thrive for the company for the main reason that the people are great.

I have met really awesome people, and the culture alone is worth coming to work for.
