What do you like about working at United Natural Foods?

"The knowing the companies possibilities of growth potential, and what the future of IT could be."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"UNFI has great growth potential. The money was good. I would have liked to have seen some exposure to the IT departments Bigger Plan. Much of it was secretive. My view is that if you have to hide it, its wrong. If you want employees to be fully engaged, one needs to make them feel that they are part of the plan. My over all thoughts of UNFI were positive, as I was initially able to use my skills without boundaries to meet objectives. Management changes are often good, but should not be self serving. They should be for the benefit of the companys goals and assist on employee growth. These two together as a balance, will drive strength and pride in meeting objectives."

What don't you like about working at United Natural Foods?

"UNFI IT was in the process of restructuring. Change is often good, but needs to engage employees as resources toward that change. There were limitations. 1/2 Of my responsibilities (Problem Management), I was informed to HOLD, and not move forward until instructed. I was later informed that my position was illuminated. There was little account within the restructuring for what happens to the employee. Is there consideration to ensure that the employee is included into the companys new model. Many of the new VPs / Directors brought in staff from their previous positions as to who had for them."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Have the IT End-to-End processes as an over all Business Strategy match fthe objectives of the business it self as partners. This includes agree upon SLAs with the business, to ensure that all IT department processes matched the goal and objectives of the company."

"Overworked, under-paid, under-appreciated until you put in your 2 weeks notice..."

What do you like about working at United Natural Foods?

"There was quite a few good things about this place. The people. All the people I worked with (minus a few detractors) were good people. The upper management (both in and out of my department) seemed very driven and focused. They made every effort to keep people on the same track for the same goal. Company benefits included options to purchase natural & organic foods direct from the company at a lower price than at the grocery store."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you have a pulse and any experience with a job you are applying for you'll be hired. Just make sure you negotiate your pay right off the bat, because they'll likely give you 2% bonuses at best until you retire / quit."

What don't you like about working at United Natural Foods?

"There was a lot of fluctuation regarding management & staff towards the end. On many occasions people that worked the hardest, the longest, and made sacrifices daily for the company were the ones that were treated the worst. Those that didn't make waves or weren't high profile were often forgotten. Middle / lower management often micromanaged and lowered the overall performance of it's employees by lowering morale. Many good people left and others were let go. One in particular sold his home and moved his entire family across country after being given a middle management position at the company headquarters. He had worked for the company for over 10+ years. He committed suicide less than a year after being let go (RIP). You can't blame the company directly for his suicide, but you can say that a situation like this makes you really consider your own ordeal with a company. Beyond that, leaving this company was difficult. In the final days before I left I was offered anything under the sun to stay. Always be aware that if and when a company does this it will be short lived until they find your replacement and then can you."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Only the golden rule of employment - Treat your employees as you wish to be treated!"
