    I can answer the first part for ya:

    YES!. You will always have freight on your truck in the foodservice sect. I know our case count is up from this time last year.

    Load it like freight train and schedule it like and airplane... Thats the foodservice motto... You can leave early and still be late... Mind over matter (if you don't mind it don't matter)

    Pay is usually broken down per stop/ per case/ per mile....

    You should be about to make at least $ 200 per day or more

    No one said it will be easy ...

    sysco is the biggest, not us foods. we are 2x bigger than us foods and 3x bigger than pfg. 200 per day is low. you should be able to get close to 300 easily.

    Stone cold,

    IDK what part of the country you are in, but Sysco is the best paying around here your right, they are making more in 4 days than I am in 5...much more, my best is usually $220.00 on a day, worst here lately is $180.00, for the $180.00, I'm not working that hard. Here is my thing, I like PFG, no one rides my butt, my boss so far has gotten my back more than once, he delivered for Sysco KCY, been with us 10 yrs or so I think, I may not get paid the best, but I will take my puny $1000.00 a week over Sysco Arkansas $1300-1500 a week anyday, I worked for fredex freight for 7 years, I refuse to go back to the BS that fredex or Sysco can dish out, for me its not about the money so much as it is about my work environment, I like going to work everyday, thats important to me. I wish we payed like Sysco or US Foods, IDK why we are not more competitive, if a bunch of BS comes with getting payed more, I would just as soon stay where I'm at in pay.

    All of us in this business work very hard for what we make, the thing I like is I have never had a nose turned up to me by a Sysco man, or anyother food guy just because they made more money, its like we have this mutual respect for one another reguardless what we make or don't make, freight just isn't like that, thats why I like food so much, I actually had a Sysco man that I know offer to run my product in that I had stacked and staged on the dock, the locations employees were late, got my stuff on the dock then pulled out of his way so he could back in, he could tell I was in a hurry, of course I declined his offer, thanked him profusley for even offering in the first place, thats the way it is around here, all of us PFG, Sysco, US Foods, Ben E Keith, Tankersley, we all work together, its really great!!

    I'd stay away from PFG-Dallas. Everyone ive ever heard from hates it and are way underpaid. In times like these i guess it would be better than nothing.

    Ice Cube,

    Let me give you some advice, here @ PFG I work 5 days and bust my butt for $1000.00 a week, my peers @ Sysco work 4 days, bust their butt, and make $1200.00, work 5 and its more like 1500, PFG is a good company but now with Vistar Roma owning us, things are getting a little tighter as far as rules, for instance now we have a goofy little point system for accidents and incidents, all these policies are now in place, I just don't make enough money to have a bunch of goofy policies crammed down my throat like at fredex, I would sooner go to Sysco myself and make 3-5oo more per week, that would be enough money to put up with all the BS from a big corporation.

    Don't get me wrong, I still like it here, even though were not up there in pay with the rest, I can however see the future and what it may hold, I went through all the changes with Af then fredex, I don't want to do that again, I'll just ride it out and see, if I were you I would look elsewhere, Sysco US Foods Ben E Kieth if you cant get on there then come to PFG, this job is to hard not to get paid all you can.

    Stone Cold, This is for you..

    I have changed my tune a bit since our safety meeting on sat, if you read the post above, I still like it here for the time being, however I can see the writing on the wall, you are right 200 is low, I'm starting to see that now, unfortunatly, unless something happens with the economy that is positive in a big way, we are all stuck where we are, around here no one is budging, none of the guys dare give up their jobs to look elsewhere.

    I had no Idea until this sat that Vistar was getting their hands so deep in us with all their policies and procedures, have to wait it out and see, I just don't wanna work at another mini fedex for less pay than everyone else, I wish we would get competitive.
