I can't believe not one employee has not complained about this Company or customers. They think they are gods and fire people for what ever reason they can make up.

They have no loyalty to their dedicated employees. They work their employees like dogs and then when they are wore out or too old to find another job they get rid of them not to mention that when you need a manager you can find them at the local golf course drunk or the local bar. The whole corporation are next to nothing but hypocrits and protect there alcoholic managers that even come to work drunk to train new employees. Corporate needs to come and make surprise visits especially on Fridays.

They would not find one manager in the building after 10 am but if they checked the local bar they would find them three sheets to the wind.

Shame on you Usfoodservice. HYPOCRITS !

I have worked for several trucking companies in my 10 years of driving. Though the driving positions wether it be delivery or overnight shuttles, it is well worth it to be able to be at home with my family everyday.

I make in three days at US Foods what I made as a company driver with OTR companies in five. Yes it's hard. But the pay and benefits make up the difference. They don't just fire you.

If you get fired, you messed up. Take responsibility for your own mistakes. You messed up a retirement career. Far as the work load, no pain no gain.

There is always minimum wage.

Thank you. Happy US Food worker.


I worked in the corporate office and they have no structure, and while management sits in your area, they are never around. Everyone works nights and weekends and talks about it before meetings or in the halls.

There is no training on their tools and they expect you to jump in and know everything immediately. Management watches over you and pairs up with your colleagues to find out what you are doing. How about just asking the employee or going by their desk?

They tell you to "protect" yourself because they fire so easily.

Management admitted to bad structure and no direction but she was the same way. She did not care about how a new employee was doing, and just complained about a project she was doing for another team.

Not professional, and too bad because there are a lot of nice people there and it is a nice facility.

they are the worst company to work for. they treat you like ***.

they promise the world and never come through. they lie to your face and when confronted about their lies they say i never said that. i feel i have to carry a pocket recorder at all times to cover my *** because of their constant lying.

they suck work for some one else but not them.. employed with them for 7 years,,


You should work for Jordanos Food Service where the average employee has been there for 14 years!!!


Yes they do treat their employees like ***! The building that I worked in in Austin Texas should have been condemned, they have since moved but I'm sure that the same idiots are running the place.

I was let go after 3 months with the reason that I just wasn't working out. I found out the next day that a temp that was working there at the same time was interviewed for the position but couldn't pass his background check. Appearently he liked to beat up his wife. He did kiss *** to the manager, which is why I got let go and he was interviewed.

It's a dump of a place full of smiling jackyls. These guys will smile in your face while they stick a knife in your back. If you are looking for a job in the food wholesale business go to Cisco.

There is a reason why they are on top, I'm sure that there is more than one! I did everything that I was instructed to do there with zero mistakes and I was still let go.

It's Sysco!And they Suck too!!!!! :upset :eek

hey big swifty. that seems to be the norm at us foods.

they are all run by idiots and they tell you things to do that are not safe and they them selves would not do but want you to risk your *** and do it' they all suck including sysco i was with them for over 14 years. all of the management at us foods in new jersey are a bunch of idiots and i forgot more than they know about running a business than they know..


I work at the Menominee falls Division ! This division is terrible !

It is run on a shoe string! Everybody from the V.P. of operations to the supervisors should be scrutinized about the *** job they do ! When A problem arises in Transportation they look at numbers then the facts !

U.S. FOODS IN Rosemount IL should take a drastic look into this problem! Then the router they have also maps out how the trucks should be loaded !

This guy does such a terrible job ! Unsafe place to work!!!!


My Complaint is from a customers perspective. I have a restaurant in Southern California and have recently been overcharged, lied to by Don Loessberg our account rep, and Hugh Kilgore his boss, been sued due to the overcharging, and after all of that, Donnie Loessberg, our supposed friend and account rep called my General manager to offer him job at another restaurant.

Anyone who has had similar experiances with US Foodservice, please feel free to email me at lagiant@mac.com. I would like to put together a website or at least a list of complaints by customers and or employees outlining the unethical business practices by US Foodservice.

We are the little guys being bullied and stepped on by the Big guy. It's not right and nothing will happen unless we do something.


here is what happened to me


Mr. Lederer, Mr. Liddy, other executives, and my former co-workers:

John just writing this email as my parting goodbye to my former co-workers and for you to know you have a mess down in Phoenix –NPC.

I was let go today at US Foods due to the actions of two of the most despicable human beings I have ever had the misfortune to come across Mark Smithyman (the lawn gnome put a pointy hate on him he looks just like one) and a man we have nick named “Booger Picker” Bill Rouse. We call him booger picker because he is constantly picking his nose and if he does not eat them he is putting them on sticky notes so please never borrow a yellow note pad from him unless you look first. I can now put Jennifer Shea in that class as well because in my hostile work environment and retaliation complaint I believed in her (slightly) but she let me down. I gave her the benefit of the doubt, the rest of the integrity team, and legal but in the end I Lost. I was told by my co-workers not to even have any hope that anything fair would come out of my complaints and I guess they were right. If my treatment while my time there is any indication of the way this company treats it employees then I guess you’ll never be on one of the best places to work list.

To qualify this email I am not really all that upset I was let go per say that’s just life it happens but it’s the way it was done and the injustice of it. I guess I am really only perturbed that it was a waste of 10 months for me and 10 months of utter misery. I had high expectations when I started and wanted to do good work for the company but that quickly vanished not because of me but due to Mark Smithyman.

To make it brief I was retaliated against and a hostile work environment was created over the course of 6 months accumulating in a retaliatory performance review and performance plan. The two of those together are not the retaliation but it’s everything else that went with it prior. I tried to do things the right way and put a stop to it by using the integrity line but I would caution everyone this email gets to that is a falsity because it is just going to get you terminated.

So here was the gist of my complaints.

There is a legality test of what constitutes or how you can tell you are being retaliated against and how a hostile work environment is being created. The work environment and the treatment I received from Mark Smithyman met 7 of those 8 tests the only thing it did not meet was that I am not in a protected class. (This will be in the law suit)

I contacted the EEOC and let Legal know as well as filing internally.

I made the claim of trade mark infringement and the use of intellectual property that was not their own.

I made the claim of possible SOX compliance issues – You have 10’s of thousands of Oracle, People Soft, Tandem, and other Web applications accounts that are not accounted for that could affect the financials of US Food Service.

The above brings up the question of Mark Smithyman’s Ethics- He has consistently lied to C-Level Management and Internal Audit that everything was *** dory and he had controls in place to assure company compliance but it was all a lie. I was an outsider and questioned him on this more than once because he was instructing his employees to alter reports and audit trails so he would not be the one fired for his failures. He altered audit reports to “look right”, he did not want audit to know of the gaps under his regime.

Just a quick fact statement on Mark Smithyman – he has been demoted before at US foods service.

He was the manager of another group, had so many people quit under him he was demoted all be it was a while back, he has sabotaged other managers careers at US and they demoted, quit or left.

In this particular group either as a lead or a manager he has been either directly responsible or played a hand in a similar fashion to me the departure of 9 other employees. I mean come on he is a #1 employee and everyone else is bad? I know there is a huge gap of information here as well you’ll never be able to experience or know until our litigation but he is a HR worse nightmare.

So according to EEOC and even AZ state whistle blower laws (not federal) I engaged in protected acts even if I am not in a protected class.

Real or perceived no matter what the reason given was I was terminated because I made claims so I have to take the legal road to become whole.

I don’t think it matters to US Foods though US food gets sued and sued a lot, plus the 10’s of millions of dollars it spends in termination and recruiting it’s a normalcy for the company.

The mess you have well that’s just way too lengthy but on the technology side you’re outdated and archaic hence all the outages. Most of the people that work there ( NPC) are very talented good people they just don’t’ have all the tools needed to be as successful as this company needs them to be not their faults. Management – I can’t say anything bad as most of my experiences I had where positive minus the two I had to deal with and the letdown I had from all legal and HR.

Paul- I liked him but he believed too much in his managers, had blinders on and to some degree my opinion based on feedback from others he may just be in over his head.

In closing – I have and had no ill will ever or through this towards US Foods, I stated this to everyone many times in the legal dept. and local HR but now I have to do the right thing and that’s legal action to become whole. You can even save this email and present it I don’t care.

I worked very hard, tried very hard, and made every possible attempt to do what was asked of me. I performed as well as I could with the amount of support and tools that where given to me by Mark Smithyman. I came to US Foods with more skills in technology, business, and management but he never wanted me to use them I was a threat to his position. I made a $100K a year to be an entry level over qualified help desk guy for the last 4 months, what a great use of a talented individual and use of company resource.

You are a wretched little man Mark Smithyman see you again I hope in court.

Couple other things to limit your liability –

1. My position, tenure, and salary are all you should really say should I need a new job and put US foods as last place to work.

2. 72 hours to get my final pay to me as well else its 33% interest daily.



I agree with your statements and I definitely wouldn't remove it. It is true...they worked my husband like a dog for 6 years and when they were ready to get rid of him they lied!!

It's amazing that the managers turn a blind eye to the thieves that steal from the company and the supervisors who facilitate rumors. The company sucks and treats their employees like SH*#!!!

Holmestrand, Vestfold, Norway #212412

Now even though I was lying about a few things (like the managers getting drunk) they are telling me that unless I have this letter removed by Friday November 19th I will loose my job. I only made this up because I was mad for being written up. Now they somehow found out about this letter from a kissup and are threatening to fire me if I don't take the lie down.

to wow Newark, New Jersey, United States #640136

attn wow if i were in your shoes i would love to get fired for posting something on here even if it may not be true, THIS IS CALLED FREEDOM OF SPEACH,and by law that would make a great law suit for you if they fired you for posting on here.. leave it up here and get a lawyer and the big bucks will flow in..

to Anonymous #907676

There's a difference between freedom of speech and disgruntled slander. This lawsuit wouldn't make it through the courthouse doors to be let inside.
