    I currently work for McLane. Looking for something with a more structured schedule and better hours. A lot of guys are leaving and going over to USF. I’m curious from those that know what the pay and salary is at USF. I’m told the work load there is less than that if MFS. I wouldn’t be heartbroken if that were true too.

    Over my past driving career, I have little to nothing good to say about any company that I have worked for. U.S. Foods would be the only exception. I worked out of Seabrook, N.H. several years ago and I left due to a move. At that time, I was making $25.50 hourly with lots and lots of overtime; came out to about $1600.00 week take home. I started every day at 4 AM. Really good company and I miss it.

    A more structured schedule means more seniority at any food service company.

    Also I'd think that it mostly depends on your center. Working out of a poorly run DC will be miserable no matter the company.

    I've worked for both, you wont work as hard at us foods, but you wont make as much money though, but you'll have more normal hours. Not normal But you're not starting at night. Are you on McLane doing 7/11's or the fast food places? I did the fast food part of McLane. Us foods def way easier

    I agree with how it’s ran. We’ve had so many quit I should have some seniority already lol.

    USF was pretty hit and miss on some of those when I was there. I personally had a decent schedule, always starting between 4-5am and my routes ranged from not terrible to pretty easy. But there was one route that chewed up and spit out at least 3 new hires in the year that I was there because it was such a garbage route. Pay started at a little over $26/hr + OT, and they should be closer to $27 after the annual COL raise (although pay rates are different in each market and some use component pay).

    I left because of how awful our warehouse was on load quality and timelines, and because of the lack of communication between routers/sales reps/customers and their unwillingness to work together to solve problems with delivery schedules.

    Seems like the lack of communication and issues with the warehouse are similar in food delivery. Everyday our warehouse is late because they can’t keep anyone and have all these new guys that aren’t use to the work so they tend to be slower. And saying lack of communication here is an understatement. There is none. I’ve been in the middle of a route and got called asking if I would come in for a shuttle or another route. They had no idea I was already in the middle of a route making deliveries. SMH

    Reminds me of this call I got at about 9am on a Monday:

    Boss: Hey, where are you?
    Me: Uh, at the airport...
    Boss: Oh ok, so you’re still at the Marriott? The GPS in your truck is still showing at the yard, it must be acting up again.
    Me: What? No, I’m in the terminal, waiting for my flight. Remember you approved my vacation for this week?
    Boss: ...
