Hi guys, I work for a large (not the largest) but oh will say maybe 4th or 5th largest broad line food service distributor in North America, we are not coast to coast in the USA, but we are pretty much East Coast all the way to St. Louis and then down into Texas so we do almost half the country. Company is based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan was founded in the very late 1800's. Anyhow the last 2 decades of the 20th century the company started to grow and branch out of the state of Michigan and reached northern Ohio and since then many other places. Well company is family owned, but the culture has changed some because certain family members are no longer living and others most of the others are more or less trust fund babies and do not really have an actual say or take any real interest in day to day operations of the company. There share holders yes, but there the kids and grand kids and stuff of the original big time owners and there are so many of them that they all can't be involved and truth be told most of them probably have no interest. Anyhow one of the companies veteran original drivers from 1988 the year I was born was the year he started at the company told me last night that he has had enough and has seen to much change over the years specifically post 2008 when some key figures kicked the bucket. It's a similar story to Jack Snead in the late 1950's deciding that it was time to move CF ahead and the old Leeland James culture had to go. Anyhow 28 year veteran of the company tells me he is moving on and applied and has gotten text messages from and interest from ABF Freight Systems and he said he is ready to go. Well anyhow we talked about the Mortality Rate of Food Service Truckers and this guy told me after 28 years in Food Service 20 of those years in delivery heavy delivery company was barbaric in the late 1980's to work for the weight and everything it's all caught up and he said you know he can feel it. Well it got me thinking about my own Mortality and for new guys coming on if there is a position what's ABF's pay like? I know the vacation time is kind of an issue, but pay and health insurance and retirement how does that all work? Thank you for reading and I appreciate your responses.
